Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
Currently head chef at the Lanesborough Hotel in London, Gayler (Virtually Vegetarian) determinedly sets out to prove that vegetarianism and haute cuisine "can meet on the same plate." With pizzazz, Gayler presents a visual guide to ingredients, equipment and techniques, recipes and menu planning. His "contemporary vegetarian" approach applies various cooking methods (saut ing, braising, deep-frying) to a global panoply of ingredients (Asian herbs, Middle Eastern grains, Mexican chiles) and seasonings (olive oils, cooking pastes); he unapologetically uses butter (vs. margarine), cream (vs. yogurt) and chocolate (vs. carob) for depth of flavor. Gayler also enthusiastically explores every conceivable food category, including pies (Salsify & Wild Mushroom Tart), stews (Hungarian Stew with Caraway Dumplings), grains (Lemon Couscous & Chermoula Mushrooms) and desserts (Candied Eggplant & Cardamom Ice Cream). While innovative and creative, a number of Gayler's vegetarian-inspired dishes are time-consuming and dairy rich (Spinach & Cumin Ravioli with Lemon Butter, containing 12 tablespoons butter) or unexpectedly caloric (Mixed Salad Pizza with Roasted Garlic, at a whopping 646 calories per serving). All in all, however, Gayler introduces a vegetarian interpretation that is exciting, compelling and flavorful. BOMC alternate, QPB selection. (Apr.)
School Library Journal
YA-Concentrating on newer methods of vegetarian cooking that include cooking lighter, with more flavor, and with far more emphasis on cuisine, Gayler begins his cookbook by offering what he calls a gallery of food examples. Tempting pictures of soups, stuffed vegetables, grilled foods, main dishes, and desserts capture readers' interest in preparing these enticing goodies. But first, the author gives a pictorial and textual tour of the vegetables, fruits, herbs, spices, and mushrooms he uses, and then presents more photographs and information about equipment and techniques. Each recipe includes a list of ingredients; step-by-step instructions; and a sidebar featuring cooking time, preparation time, servings, and nutritional notes. Unlike some vegetarian and haute-cuisine cookbooks, the ingredients can be found in most grocery stores. Young adults interested in cooking will find nutritional, attractive recipes; clear instructions; and lots of photographs of the finished dishes that will encourage them to try their hands in the kitchen.-Pam Johnson, Fairfax County Public Library, VA Copyright 1999 Cahners Business Information.
