****(Same review I wrote for my other purchase of the Moosewood Daily Restaurant cookbook - the only thing I can add to this is if you've never seen the movie "100 foot Journey" You need to watch it. Reading most of the recipes and the backgrounds of the chefs themselves reminds me a lot of the passion exhibited in that movie - the love for cooking is shown and expressed on every page - even on the pages of meals I know I won't make (seafood dishes) but I still read the information and they sometimes make me want to go out and get the stuff to make 'em!****
My favourite recipes from this book are:
Indian potato pancakes
Greens with Cashews
Vegetable pot pie (I haven't tried to veganise this yet since becoming vegan, but during my lacto-ovo vegetarian days this dish was legendary)
Chocolate and cranberry tart
Tibetan Seitan Burritos
Autumn Bitter/Sweet Salad With Cranberry Vinaigrette
Choklay's home fries
Every time I read this book I get excited to cook (and eat). The book also has helpful ideas about stocking a pantry, planning a menu, and throwing a dinner party. Vegan dishes are listed at the back, and plenty of the non-vegan dishes can be easily veganised.
Yes, the book has a scant few recipes with some fish in them, but there is an easy solution to that: don't eat them!

I love this book. The best part about it, is that although several of the recipes use fish, it is easy to remove/substitute. Read morePublished on July 8, 2011 by E. M.
This cookbook is not Vegetarian at all. Maybe a good portion of the recipes are.
FISH is a breathing creature and if you eat it you are a Pescotarian not vegetarian.
