Editorial Reviews

Review

"This book is a priceless treasury of eclectic, fascinating, and beautifully written recipes that are unified by Madhur Jaffrey's own seductive esthetic, which is born out of her immersion in the traditions of Indian cooking and her respect and passion for the garden and the farmer's market."
-- Alice Waters

"Colors, flavors, and textures are so artfully combined in these enticing vegetable dishes, one would never have a sense of deprivation for having forsaken meat. With such a seductive diversity, it is a blessing that the recipes are explicit, and most are simple to do."
-- Mimi Sheraton

"In World Vegetarian, Madhur Jaffrey proves as exciting a travel guide as she is a cook! Her gastronomic tour around the globe is accented with useful cooking tips and lively anecdotes, while the varied and well-written recipes are a mouthwatering tour-de-force. From Azuki beans to Zahtar spice, from the Old World to the New, the scope and depth of this book are breathtaking."
-- Michael Romano

"Madhur Jaffrey's World Vegetarian is Exhibit A in showing us just how large that world is today and simultaneously how small the globe, as we connect to cultures and cuisines on a worldwide web of flavors and ingredients. While East Indians are eating Spicy Corn with Sesame Seeds and Tomatoes, Americans are eating Green Peas with Coconut and Cilantro. Jaffrey's clarity is as perfected in small details as in large and everywhere her taste unifies dishes from lands far and near. Buy one for your kitchen shelf and one for your carry-on luggage."
-- Betty Fussell

From the Inside Flap

In her most comprehensive volume yet, Madhur Jaffrey draws on more than four decades of culinary adventures, travels, and experimentation for a diverse collection that both intrigues and delights the palate. Dishes from five continents touch on virtually all the world's best loved flavors, for a unsurpassed selection of vegetarian fare.
        
More than 650 recipes exemplify Madhur's unsurpassed ability to create simple, flavorful homecooking that is well within the reach of every cook. Extensive sections on Beans, Vegetables, Grains, and Dairy explore the myriad ways these staples are enjoyed worldwide. Each section opens with a detailed introduction; Madhur describes methods for preparation and storage, as well as different cooking techniques and their cultural origins. Throughout she balances appealing, uncomplicated dishes such as sumptuous omelets and rich polentas with less familiar ingredients such as green mangoes, pigeon peas, and spelt. Madhur demystifies the latter with clear-cut explanations so that incorporating new combinations and interesting flavors into everyday cooking becomes second nature. She also offers substantial sections on Soups, Salads, and Drinks, as well as Sauces and Other Flavorings, to help round out a meatless meal and add exciting new flavors to even the most easily prepared dishes. Finally, a complete glossary of ingredients and techniques clarifies some of the little-known elements of the world's cuisines so that even the uninitiated can bring the flavors of Asia, the Middle East, the Caribbean, and more to their tables.
        
Throughout this extensive collection, Madhur includes personal anecdotes and historical contexts that bring her recipes to life, whether she's remembering field of leeks she saw in the mountains of northern Greece or describing how corn-based dishes arrived in Indonesia through colonial trade. Committed vegetarians will rejoice at the wide variety of meatless fare she offers, and nonvegetarians will enjoy experimenting with Madhur's global flavorings. This highly readable resource promises to be a valuable addition to any cook's library, helping everyone make healthful ethnic foods a part of everyday cooking.

5.0 out of 5 stars Simple, delicious and diverse array of recipes!
By I.D. on February 5, 2018
I cannot begin to express just how much I have fallen in love with this cookbook. It sits prominently on my kitchen shelf on one of those book helpers that keep books standing upright and open. I came across this cookbook when visiting a friend, and after leafing through the passionate and well-explained, simple dishes, I knew I had to buy it for myself. I have only recently started discovering the delicious flavors not just of Indian food but Middle Eastern and African dishes, and have long wanted to try my hand at them.

So far, everything that I have cooked from this book has been absolutely delicious and definitely do-able! Palestinian Lentils and Rice, Sliced Tomatoes in Tomato Sauce, Fennel and Orange Salad, Sri Lankan Sweet Potatoes with Chile and Cardamom, Green Beans and Shallots, Chickpea and Spinach Stew. I haven't even begun to scratch the surface of all the possibilities. I truly feel like I am traveling the world with Jaffrey's storyteller-like descriptions of how she came to get to know and fall in love with each recipe. There are already dishes I remake several times, and I have to discipline myself to keep exposing myself to new recipes within the book instead of falling back on old favorites.

One of the reviewers mentioned that this is one of the only cookbooks you need (even for non-vegetarians), and I completely agree. The diversity and explosion of tastes that come out of these simple recipes is enough to create a full array of dishes for simple weeknight dinners and entertaining parties. I love Jaffrey's personal recommendations on how to pair dishes.
