9780091863647: Madhur Jaffrey's World Vegetarian Cookbook

Vegetarian cookery, once associated with the East, is now a firmly established part of our Western culture and eating habits. As meat-free cooking has grown in popularity and sophistication, we have borrowed a whole range of techniques and ideas from various cultures, creating an exciting tradition of globally influenced vegetarian cuisine. Rather than approaching vegetarianism from a dry, didactic standpoint, this major cookery book takes as its starting point the principle that vegetarian cooking is one of the most interesting, dynamic areas in food today and provides a collection of the very best vegetarian recipes the world's cuisines have to offer.

Chapter to chapter the book focuses on different ingredients, from vegetables and grains to pulses and dairy products, providing fascinating information about less familiar ingredients, such as wild rice or the many kinds of salad leaves available. Over 500 vegetarian recipes draw on the whole world for their inspiration, from Thailand to Tunisia, from the Mediterranean to Mexico. Throughout Madhur Jaffrey's renowned talent for informing and inspiring her audience is apparent, and her own personal anecdotes and stories set the recipes in context.

Madhur Jaffrey's World Vegetarian will be a milestone in modern cuisine and is a cookbook which is set to be on kitchen shelves for many, many years to come.

Review:

Madhur Jaffrey--who unorthodoxly still combines a career as one India's leading actresses and film producers with being a best selling cookery writer--broadens her culinary horizons in this comprehensive global tour. Having popularised Indian cooking with her previous efforts, the world is now her stage for this magisterial global take on vegetarian food. Flesh-free eating, drawing on a wide range of influences and culinary traditions, has never been a more mainstream part of the British diet eating and Jaffrey's book stylishly plugs into this. She deals with all the basic ingredients in turn--vegetables, beans, lentils and nuts, grains, dairy foods and flavourings, as well as soups, salads and drinks--together with advice on preparation and storage. The recipes, based on extensive travel and research, are simply laid out and easy to follow as food from Thailand and Tunisia, Italy and India, Mexico and the Middle East, all jostle for position in this clamouring world bazaar of wonderful tastes, entertaining anecdotes and practical tips. -- Nick Wroe
