I purchased this book hoping to find some meatless entrees to fit into my regular non-vegan diet. There are a few recipes for your run-of-the-mill veggies like broccoli, cabbage, corn and string beans. Most of the book is dedicated to vegetables like truffles, watercress, sorrel, salsify, rutabagas, cardoons and fiddlehead ferns, to name a few. I was disappointed with the small number of recipes that I would consider using in such a large and expensive book.

The recipes are too fancy.

I tried the the basic steamed broccoli recipe because it had a new twist, so I thought I'd give it a try. I thought that a very easy dish would be a fair test for the book. It was way too salty, and not palatable. Sad, because my family likes that veg! Cooking is something I'm passionate about as I make dinner 5-6 time a week, and I'm not talking mac'n cheese.

The physical quality of the book is poor, the paper is the high acid type that will yellow and crumble quickly, and visually lacking. I feel sorry for the author because the few photos in the book look like something from a 70's Better Homes and Gardens, which my mom still has, which inspired me to cook beyond that stuff.

I'd suggest the CIA books instead, as the recipes are better tasting and have some cred.

Ruth Reichl's Gourmet cook book is a real winner, too, and never disappoints... good for the average kitchen.
