4.0 out of 5 stars Vegetarian Comic Book, August 23, 2012

This review is from: Dirt Candy: A Cookbook: Flavor-Forward Food from the Upstart New York City Vegetarian Restaurant (Paperback)
I was looking for some new and unusual vegetarian recipes and thought I'd try this book, although I'd never heard of the restaurant. When I received the book, I was sort of pleasantly surprised to find that it was in a graphic novel format. The book relates a number of the restaurant owner's personal stories, including among other things, why we should cook with oil and why she charges $14 for a plate of salad. The book is interesting, and the recipes are innovative and original (they include a few vegetable desserts), but they are really rather secondary to the owner's story. If you are the sort of person who is looking for a cookbook with lots of recipes and pretty color photographs, this is not the book for you, but if you're a fan of graphic novel art and unusual cooking memoirs, this will be a good fit.

Is the entire book done in that Comic Book/Graphic Novel format? Even the recipes? How is it trying to make recipes from this format? Thanks.

The recipes are in regular recipe format, with some illustrations nearby (kind of like the old Moosewood cookbook.)

So far I'm lukewarm to this book. There are too many unfunny, uninteresting graphic novel sections for my taste. The recipes will have to be very good to overcome that, for me.

Great review, thanks. I probably won't buy it for my vegetarian/vegan cookbook collection but I'm considering it for my cooking memoirs collection. Thanks again.
