BEST. COOKBOOK. EVER.
I could get rid of every other cookbook I have. I've had this one for ten years and refer to it often. I rarely pull out any of the other cookbooks I have.
This guy is simple, honest, casual and creative. No crazy ingredients you can't find, no recipes that tie you to the ki...

This is one of the most useful cookbooks on my shelf. I use it several times a week and have not yet made anything that I didn't like. It has helped me try new foods with confidence.

If I had to choose one vegetarian book to own or to give someone thinking about starting a vegetarian lifestyle, this would be it.
The title says it all!

Now I haven't gone through the whole book but I did go through the detailed introduction about the basic cooking methods,techniques etc. I will try a few recipes thoug...

This is an interesting cookbook. Mark Bittman, who has created other cookbooks, takes a shot at a vegetarian cookbook. One nice wrinkle--he shows Vegans how they can adapt some of these recipes to their needs. He begins by noting that (Page ix) "Increasingly, Americans are becoming `flexitarians,...

This book is useful not just for the recipes, but for the illustrations and instructions on how to chose, prepare and cook various types of vegetables. He addresses various staples of the vegetarian diet with brief introductions followed by recipes and tips.
Non-vegetarians could find this book v...
