Like all of Nava Atlas's books, this one is wonderful, filled with clear descriptions and phenomenal recipes with an eye toward good health. My one and only quibble is that the recipes are hardly "updated" as described on the cover ... I went through it page by page comparing it to the original version, but the only changes I could find were to delete "water" as an ingredient, and to change "margarine" to "reduced-fat margarine" -- which hardly seems worth the cost of a new book; mine is going right back to Amazon. However, if you don't already own the original version, I highly recommend this book for uniquely delicious recipes (many of them kid-pleasing, and appealing to omnivores as well as vegetarians) designed to promote good health, with as little fat and sodium as possible without sacrificing flavor. Although I own almost every vegetarian cookbook in print (no exaggeration), this is one of my all-time favorites, and most dependable ones.

Both me and my wife consider this the best of about 20 cookbooks we have. This is not your usual uncritical collection of recipes (like 99% of the other cookbooks), the author really teaches you new ways of thinking about vegetarian food, that go beyond italian, or asian, or midwestern style. Certainly a step forward in vegetarian cuisine innovation. Very handy, also, for those holidays when you still don't want animal foods, but don't quite know what to cook. Our two last Thanksgiving banquets have been vegetarian, and great successes too.

This is the cookbook I've turned to again and again -- it has the most food stains of any cookbook in my collection, which is a good sign! I had no idea vegetarian cooking could be so tasty until I bought this. Not a single recipe has been a disappointment, and what a great idea to organize them according to traditional celebrations. I cannot recommend this book highly enough!

As thanksgiving is only a few days away and I pulled out this cookbook once again to look for some ideas on what to take to my relatives (who are not vegetarians but are getting to like the ideas better) I thought I better write a review. This is a great cookbook and as I mentioned, I pull it out at certain holidays, either when I'm cooking a full vegetarian celebration dinner or when I'm just bringing a couple of dishes over to our relatives houses.
The chapters in the book are actually the celebratory event:
New Years, Valentines Day, Easter & St. Patricks Day, Passover, Mothers day and Fathers day, memorial day, etc etc
Within each chpater there are a couple of different menus, usually 3 or 4 so you have some variety on what to pull together. For thanksgiving, for example, the menus are: A family Thanksgiving, A Harvest Feast for friends, Substitite Main dishes for thanksgiving dinner, and Substitite Stuffings
There are breads, salads, main dishes, side dishes, the whole works. Everything I've made so far has been great. I still use my other cookbooks at holidays too but this one definitely has the right dishes paired up with the different themes of the holidays.
