M kind of shocked there isn t of an outcry in the veg community about thisThe rest of the cookbook that is actually vegetarian consists of appetizers dips and spreads soups sandwiches burgers main dish salads curries and stews beans frittatas and pies casseroles stuffed vegetables wraps rolls and strudels tofu pasta side salads sides side grains salad dressings condiments and salsas sauces and gravies desserts baking pan sizes and euivalents and guide to ingredients and basic cooking It s a huge ong cookbook But out of all these recipes I only found eight I wanted to try Usually I want to try at east every other recipe in a cookbook The recipes here that failed to spark my interest fell into one of three categories 1 they were painfully obvious and overly simple 2 they were deeply unhealthy swimming in cups of oil heavy cream and tons of eggs or 3 they weren t vegetarian because they contained fishSome examples of the painfully obvious include uinoa with veggies basic chili thai vegetable curry and black bean sweet potato burritos You don t need a cookbook from a famous restaurant to give you these recipes I d say otherwise if there was anything about their recipes that at east made them a variation of the norm but I have seen the same thing over and over again in multiple recipes in cookbooks blogs and websitesAs for the unhealthy recipes beyond the already mentioned high fat and an unnecessary uantity of eggs there were things ike the suggestion to top your corn on the cob with mayonnaise Or the fact that most of their dressing recipes contained 14 to 34 cup of oil The recipes routinely don t take a well rounded diet into consideration Protein doesn t get enough attention For instance a vegetarianized jambalaya recipe has zero protein in it And perhaps it s not unhealthy but I found it very odd that a restaurant s cookbook called for canned pumpkin for their pumpkin pieOn the plus side the cookbook is well organized and illustrated with beautiful pictures Although the recipes are written out in paragraph form I generally prefer a numbered ist But this is a personal preference and the recipes are easy enough to followI have made one of the eight recipes I selected out as possibilities so far I made the Winter Salad Plate page 110 Since the recipe states it serves 8 as a side salad and my intention was to have it as a side salad with egg sandwiches with my partner and a friend I halved the recipe Also since I didn t have greens from my CSA that week I replaced the greens with root vegetables The consensus was it was yummy but the dressing needed a touch of bitterness Cultural Excursions like a vinegar andess oil I don t mind having to adapt a recipe a bit to get it just right but with a high uality cookbook you don t have to do thatIn spite of the shortcomings the recipes do indeed work and the cookbook is well organized and prettily illustrated Recommended to pescetarians and omnivores who don t cook a Cruelty and Laughter lot so the recipes would beess familiar to them who Cooking by introducing delicious soups satisfying sandwiches wa.
