Great book with some delicious recipes, the moroccan spaghetti is especially tasty.

I haven't found a bad recipe in this book yet.

Nice vegetarian recipes that would be equally enjoyable to any meat-eater willing to give them a try.

Not every recipe has a photograph, but those that do are displayed nicely.
This is a great introduction to vegetarian cooking. Good for anyone who wants to be vegetarian, has friends who don't eat meat, or really any open-minded omnivore. There are a few typos, but nothing that prevents one from using the book to its fullest.
Can I just say yum! The food in this book was absolutely mouth-watering. This was a cookbook that even my husband showed interest in ( he always has to have meat with his meal). The recipes looked super easy and simply delicious.
A really quite decent Vegetarian cookbook, particularly as Rimmer creates dishes which are more than just simple vegetable stir fries, he creates recipes that even carnivors begin to salivate over while reading.
Handy book to have around if you only need to cook veggie meals on occasion. Not comprehensive but an interesting approach none the less
Interesting recipes. I've only made two things but they were both very good.
