Madhur Jaffrey's World-of-the-East Vegetarian Cooking based on 0 ratings. 2 reviews.
I love veggies. My roommate hates most of them. I bought this, remembering Jaffrey's cookbooks from my hanging-out-at-an-ashram days. Made about half a dozen of the recipes so far. And the leftovers vanish from the fridge almost before *I* get seconds. Our favorites so far: Beets and Stewed Tomatoes; Carrots with Raisins and Figs; and Asparagus in Sesame Oil.
This first culinary effort by vegetarian guru, Madhur Jaffrey, is now a classic, must-have cookbook for anyone who loves vegetarian food, and anyone who loves the cuisines of Asia. Jaffrey presents the recipes in her inimitable style, personably and concisely. The cuisines of so many countries are represented here, from Japan to India, and many points in between. When I became vegetarian in 1981, this was one of the few cookbooks I owned. I use it still. Making wheat gluten from scratch for the first time was revelatory--so fresh-tasting, so fun to make. This latest purchase was to replace my old, well-used, well-loved first copy. If only it were available in hard cover.
