Overview

If you're planning a party, whether it's a stylish cocktail bash or a relaxing barbecue, chances are your guest list will include at least one vegetarian. How do you create a spread of tempting, mouthwatering food for everyone and still find time to enjoy your company, without being tied to the kitchen? If your feast is built around a turkey or a roast, what can you feed the vegetarians without making it seem like they're making a fuss? Party Food for Vegetarians shows you just how easy it is, by introducing more than eighty stylish, mouthwatering dishes that will appeal to vegetarians, vegans, and meateaters alike. With tempting recipes such as Eggplant, Feta, & Mint Skewers; Raw Thai Salad in a Pappadam Shell; Ginger-Spiked Avocados; Sugarbeans; and Chocolate Strawberry Truffle Pots, Celia Brooks Brown has reinvented vegetarian food with robust flavors to satisfy all of your party guests.

Brooks Brown's dishes are devised and selected to suit a wide range of occasions, from large, formal gatherings to impromptu meals with friends, from smart Sunday lunches to laid-back picnics. Also included are recipes for the growing band of "pescetarians" -- vegetarians who occasionally eat fish. Every recipe is uncomplicated and can be used to round out a meat-based menu. Many can stand alone as main dishes. Brooks Brown's smart shortcuts and warm, friendly advice on shopping and stocking key ingredients put the pleasure back into cooking and entertaining. Her recipes and easy approach will give you the confidence to cater for any event, large or small, formal or casual. The book is packed with helpful tips and guidance on make-ahead preparation and high-speed recipes. Special feature spreads in each chapter offer menus and planning hints for special occasions. The richness of the finished dishes -- so important for creating the perfect atmosphere -- is captured beautifully by Jan Baldwin's photography. Vegetarian food has never looked, or tasted, this good.
