Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble

This new vegetarian guide by two-time James Beard Award-winning author Karen Page (The Flavor Bible; Culinary Artistry) ranks hands-down as one of the most useful food books of the year. Its A-to-Z list introduce readers to hundreds of ingredients, each cross-referenced with the herbs, spices, and other seasonings that best optimize their natural flavors. To find the best pairings, Page tapped into the hard-won expertise of dozens of leading chefs from across. For any vegetarian or foodie leaning that way, this 576-page book makes an ideal purchase or gift.

<b>Tal Ronnen</b> - Author of The Conscious Cook
"As a chef-restaurateur, I've used The Flavor Bible for years as an idea starter when coming up with new dishes. I know our mixologists find it just as helpful when they're creating new cocktails. The Vegetarian Flavor Bible is going to be invaluable at the restaurant, and I plan to keep a copy at home, too. Bravo!"
Mollie Katzen
"Open this book to just about any page and you will find yourself in an orchard of inspiration and useful information organized from every angle: seasons, flavors, ethnic tradition, ingredient affinities. The logic of delicious plant food cookery is ripe for the picking- accessible, instructional, and even playful. Karen Page's thorough, generous message is an intuition booster for every level of experience, and Andrew Dornenburg's beautiful images will make it all feel magical and pull you in, guaranteed."

    I am NOT a vegetarian, but The Flavor Bible is the most useful b

    I am NOT a vegetarian, but The Flavor Bible is the most useful book in my kitchen, so as soon as I heard about The Vegetarian Flavor Bible I ordered it.  It's hard to believe that it is even bigger and even better than the original.  I'm very happy to have it as a guide to cooking with vegetables, grains, beans, mushrooms, and much more.




    Amazing photo’s. This looks more like a tabletop book than a cookbook. This is my favorite holiday gift for this year!

    This book is incredible! It is 50 percent bigger than THE FLAVO

    This book is incredible! It is 50 percent bigger than THE FLAVOR BIBLE, with dozens of new listings that did not appear in that book -- including quinoa and many other whole grains, and lots of types of greens (e.g. purslane and tatsoi), legumes (e.g. black lentils and split peas), and mushrooms (e.g. black trumpet and pom pom). I love the tips that are woven throughout the lists from leading chefs on how to work with various ingredients and create out-of-the-ordinary meatless dishes. Practically speaking, I find it a very helpful addition to have colored A-Z tabs on the right side for easy access to the information you want to have at your fingertips, not to mention the green ribbon bookmark to find your way back to a specific page. This will be a great gift to give food lovers this holiday season.
