I waited for this book to come at the library so I could see it before I bought it, glad I did. I wouldn't spend the money on this one. I am not real sure why each page has pictures of kitchen towels but not of the food? Very boring lay out of the recipes.
I had read one of the author's recipes in an edition of Vegetarian Times and anxiously awaited the publication of the book. I had preordered it in July and received it the end of August. The recipes are broken down by category, which I like. The description of the grains and manner of cooking was informative. I must confess, however, to great disappointment in the fact that none of the recipes has a nutritional breakdown. I'm a vegetarian who eats high fiber, whole grains and nowhere is there fiber content, let along calories, carbs, etc. The inclusion of that information would have rated this cookbook a position on the top shelf.
