    DescriptionVegetarian cookery, once associated with the East, is now a firmly established part of our Western culture and eating habits. As meat-free cooking has grown in popularity and sophistication, we have borrowed a whole range of techniques and ideas from various cultures, creating an exciting tradition of globally influenced vegetarian cuisine. Rather than approaching vegetarianism from a dry, didactic standpoint, this major cookery book takes as its starting point the principle that vegetarian cooking is one of the most interesting, dynamic areas in food today and provides a collection of the very best vegetarian recipes the world's cuisines have to offer. Chapter to chapter the book focuses on different ingredients, from vegetables and grains to pulses and dairy products, providing fascinating information about less familiar ingredients, such as wild rice or the many kinds of salad leaves available. Over 500 vegetarian recipes draw on the whole world for their inspiration, from Thailand to Tunisia, from the Mediterranean to Mexico. Throughout Madhur Jaffrey's renowned talent for informing and inspiring her audience is apparent, and her own personal anecdotes and stories set the recipes in context. Madhur Jaffrey's World Vegetarian will be a milestone in modern cuisine and is a cookbook which is set to be on kitchen shelves for many, many years to come.

    Review quote
    "More than just a cookbook, a fascinating tour of the vegetarian world. Comprehensive, yet personal, a must for all food lovers" Waterstone's Books
    Review text
    Jaffrey has gone truly global for this collection of over 700 recipes, gathered dozens of countries in the Far East, the Caribbean, South America, the Mediterranean and the Middle East. Separate chapters present the staples of vegetarian cuisine in a text combining historical details and personal anecdotes with practical tips on preparation and cooking a whole range of dishes. It all makes such colourful reading, you simply don't notice the absence of illustrations. Light years from the nut-cutlet era, this is a real magnum opus. (Kirkus UK)
