A lovely photograph of a bowl of tofu marinated in parsley and olive oil graces the cover of this cookbook, which is full of bright and beautiful photos accompanying the simple vegetarian appetizer, lunch, and dessert recipes that are artful and simple and require a refined palate. The condiment dishes are fabulous and innovative for readers who are looking for something new to add to their repertoire of lunchtime sandwiches and salads. The desserts are decadent, and especially appealing is the Chocolate Chew recipe, which incorporates three types of chocolate and is not overly sweet. Nutritionist Oliveira focuses on healthful eating, but the recipes do not lack in flavor or creativity. This cookbook is not for everyone, as it is limited to vegetarian lunchtime meals and snacks. Recommended for public libraries with a solid collection of special diet cookbooks or academic libraries with a nutrition section.
