I bought this book when it was originally published, and lost it somewhere along they way. Now I am ordering a replacement copy...can't wait to have it back! The recipe for the incredible, decadent peroigi (I like to make it for Easter) is worth the cost of the entire book, however, all the recipes are delicious. Warning to vegetarians who do not eat dairy or eggs;: this probably will not be a useful cookbook for you.
This book was the first cookbook of vegetarian cuisine that I owned in the late 70's, early 80's. It was lost in a series of moves and I have missed this book from my kitchen. The recipes are excellent, easy to prepare and produce and all a joy to read. This source of good food works for connoisseurs of good simple food with a dash of elan. P.S. Also has the best gazpacho recipe I have ever found!
I bought this book in the 70's and it fell apart from so much use. Eventually I through it out since I had so many other vegetarian cookbooks. Through the years I sadly missed many of the recipes. It has by far the best vegetarian recipes that I have ever seen in 30+ years. Recently trying to cook more vegetarian for my family caused me to search for this old book and I am thrilled to see it still available.
