Having made the change to Veganism recently, and discovering Seitan, I was expecting this cookbook to open the door to non-meat Paradise! The description of the book, and the reviews of others made it sound like the Holy Grail.
Bah.
I'd say 40-50% of the recipes using the prepared Seitan call for the "wheat-meat" to be battered and deep fried. So WHERE is the healthy cooking in THAT? I was looking for recipes for the actual Seitan preparation, using different seasonings and flavors, and then hoping to find a fake meatloaf recipe, or a fake turkey and stuffing for Thanksgiving.
I'm still looking.

The first recipe I tried from the book left us with a 'meat-like' product that resembled and tasted like chicken fried steak. It was delicious and the whole family ate it like gang-busters. Storing vital wheat gluten in the cabinet is a much cheaper alternative than purchasing meat and then having to keep it under refrigeration. Strong BUY recommendation.

I want to note that although this book says it's a vegetarian cookbook, it is not. It WOULD be an ovo-vegetarian cookbook but for the sea life recipe(s).

The only book of its kind that shows you how to make this
amazing new food, seitan, from whole wheat. Also included
are recipes for preparing this food if bought already
prepared.

There are more than 200 recipes from appetizers and soups to
main dishes and desserts using this 100% vegetarian
delicious whole food.

Excellent book especially if you are looking to make seitan using whole wheat flour, and not wheat gluten. Most recipes focused on the rinsing, re-rinsing method of making seitan. For those with no access to vital wheat gluten or preferring to use whole wheat flour, this is hard to find, and so valuable. (I was only looking for vital wheat gluten seitan recipes, hence 3 stars.) Also, no photos. There are some illustrations but no pictures of dishes (at least in the edition I bought). This is no great loss, though photos do "sell" recipes. Less photos does mean more room for its huge quantity and variety of recipes using seitan and accompaniments (sauces, spice mixes, etc.).

Gluten has been a well-kept secret of certain religions and peoples of our society. It is finally coming into the light in today's health-conscious society.
With quality whole wheat available now to anyone with a postal address, the technique of cooking with gluten, either as a meat substitute or a meat filler, can be practiced by everyone. I first discovered gluten in the seventies in a Magic Mill Mormon cookbook. As the making of gluten is fairly time-consuming, I learned to make a lot at a time and storing it for future use.
I have made countless meat dishes with either only gluten or gluten and meat, and most people wouldn't realize any difference! I hope shoppers aren't deceived by the idea that most recipes available are Oriental; gluten can be used by everyone. Certainly, the making of gluten can be easier using a large mixer, but can actually be done by the strong of hand.
Highly recommended book, an excellent resource!

I liked that it went into some detail about making basic seitan, so the book was somewhat helpful. I really didn't like the recipes that much because they didn't appeal to my taste and I also didn't see anything special in them. Suggested improvements: give the reader ways to make seitan more versatile by giving tips on changing the texture.

Not keen on this cookbook. "Cooking with Gluten and Seitan," by Dorothy Bates, is much more useable and versatile. The recipes in this particular book that I've tried have not been all that palatable. Will probably donate this cookbook to the local library sale.
