I will say that this book is not really for beginners. Not that anything is terribly difficult, but pretty much every dish has at least four components that all need their own special preparations. I'll commonly spend over four hours making recipes from here, and my kitchen will be a disaster area, but the results are definitely worth it. So if you're a vegetarian who loves to cook and wants some VERY unique dishes that are heavily vegetable-based (as opposed to a fake meat as the bulk of each entree...) and doesn't mind putting in the work to get them, then this is for you. The graphic novel sections are actually really great, too. Aside from being way cute, they offer a lot of insight into not only the strange world of restaurant work, but also the difficulties one happens upon by being a vegetarian.
Easily the best cookbook I own, and every recipe is an eventual must-make.
When they announced that it would be a graphic novel cookbook I was a bit disappointed, but after finally getting my copy in the mail I can't begin to tell you how wrong I was. This is hands down the best cookbook I have ever read. She has made the most complicated dishes so easy to understand, and I can't wait to try them out this weekend.
Such a great story. It really does feel like I am getting two books for the price of one.
The recipes might be more advanced, but they are presented in such a way as to not be intimidating. Yes, you might spend all day Saturday making one of the recipes, but you'll have fun doing it!
So far I have made the carrot buns and the radish ravioli, both of which were amazing (but especially the ravioli)!
Also, while this book is vegetarian, almost all of the recipes can be made vegan (some already are). Kudos for that!
Super +1 - she gives the complete recipe for the smoked cauliflower and horseradish sauce with waffle dish, which is my favorite of her dishes.
One improvement would be to let us know what her pickling spice breakdown is for the pickled shiitake recipe. I do understand everyone has their own pickle spice ratio they think is best, but I would love to know Ms. Cohen's particular blend.
