I have several Veggie cooking books but this is the only general veggie cooking book I'll need to keep - I'm off to buy a used copy now.

This book is literally god-sent for anyone who wants/has to cook vegetarian food and knows little about it. I love to cook but as my husband is a vegetarian I feel the number of experiments I can run are fairly limited. But after buying this book, I can feel myself becoming a better cook and my dinner table looks much more interesting. Even the husband compliments much more frequently.

The best things I liked about this book: The many side tips and explanations regarding how to cut various vegetables. The chef has also given a helpful pairing chart regarding which dish will go with what. Each recipe has many variations to it and so keeping your palate in mind you can make changes.

The only slight minus is the index. I found it a bit confusing. It is an 'index inside an index' system. For that to work the main index's alphabet starting points should have been bold-ed. It would have been a lot more helpful.

I've learned so much about basic cooking skills from this book, and the format -- a basic recipe with a list of variations -- has helped me get the hang of improvising in the kitchen.

More of a reference book than a recipe book. This is one I'd go to for information. Tried a few of the recipes and they are tasty.

I think this should be a cookbook library staple for EVERYONE (vegan, omni, vegetarian, pesco, ovo, lacto, whatever). I could sit and read this book for hours. I was so impressed by it, that I went out and bought it. Everything I have made from it is excellent from the simplest marinated carrots to a purreed bean tart with ancient grain crust (even my picky daugther gave it a "dix sur dix") to just last weekend the most incredible beet burgers ever! Bittman has now decided to pursue a "vegan before dinner" approach to eating that I think a lot of people could get on board with and help ease them to a more healthful way of life. A keeper to be sure.

A detailed, thick book by a talented non-vegetarian chef. I think this book is a masterpiece.

This cookbook is amazing. It's very much like Mastering the Art of French Cooking by Julia Child except the focus is on vegetarian food rather than French. It is very informative, easy to follow and full of great recipes!

An excellent resource for vegetarian cooking as well as being really helpful with various cooking techniques.

As always, Bittman's recipes are refreshingly straightforward, resolutely unfussy, and unfailingly delicious-producing dishes that home cooks can prepare with ease and serve with confidence.
