this is my very favorite vegetarian cookbook. I've owned it for at least 10 years, and I'm still trying things from it and loving it. I especially like her commentary and the meal suggestions in the back. Can not go wrong with this one.
I picked this book up at a book sale in college and thought I might like a few recipes. It quickly became the most used book in my kitchen, and I've tried A LOT of recipes. Most of them I love, there are a few I would never recommend. But more than anything I really appreciate how inventive Didi Emmons is and how she takes a new twist on old favorites. She also has great sections where she gives the history of a food or additional ways of using it. Quick response to another comment about this book...I don't feel like you should have to BE vegetarian to write a cook book. I'm not vegetarian, but I love this book.
There are many things at fault with this cookbook: (1) in the introduction the author still claims to eat meat a few times a month, (2) the table of contents is unsatisfactory. Because the book is so large, it would have been extremely helpful to have a list of every recipe within each chapter, (3) the font is forest green with magenta font recipe titles, (4) I didn't find too many recipes I would want to try, (5) informational pages about tofu, cooking beans, other vegetarian info should have all been in the introduction. Often an information page or two would split up recipes and make the book hard to follow.
