Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
Meatless dishes from around the world shine in this stylish book. Brown, an American who caters and does food consulting in London, was inspired by the city's array of ethnic eateries, and much of the book is filtered through recent immigrants or British cooks who have become skilled in another region's cooking style; the "expert" on Spanish cooking, for example, is a Bristol chef, and many recipes are adapted from other cookbooks, perhaps less authentic as a result. Brown makes up for this by including numerous dishes that will pleasantly surprise vegetarians who think they've tried everything, such as delightful Coriander Pea Cakes in Coconut Curry from Mauritius; cute, fried Son-in-Law Eggs from Thailand; and a thick, hot Ukrainian variation on Borshch. Most are main dishes, and familiar offerings (Boston Baked Beans; Moroccan Mixed Vegetable Couscous) anchor the 11 chapters, which span the world by region. Few of the recipes are complicated, and Brown provides conversions and translations for measurements and terms, though beginners may be frustrated by the sometimes vague instructions. Still, with its beautiful presentation of a well-rounded selection of dishes, this book should take a prominent place on the shelf of any vegetarian who loves to cook. Photos. (Apr.)

Library Journal
Brown, the author of two other books on vegetarian food, was born in Colorado but has lived in London, where she is a food writer, cooking teacher, and caterer. Her latest is an attractive, lavishly illustrated around-the-world tour of vegetarian classics. The thoughtfully chosen recipes, which will certainly appeal to nonvegetarians as well, represent close to 90 countries and range from Proven al Baby Artichokes in Herb Oil to Lebanese Fattoush (bread salad) to Spinach in Peanut Coconut Sauce from Tanzania. Each chapter includes a brief guide to ingredients and an essay contributed by an authority on a specific regional or ethnic cuisine; Brown's recipe head notes are both readable and informative. A good companion to Madhur Jaffrey's World Vegetarian, this is recommended for all subject collections. Copyright 2006 Reed Business Information.
