1  COOKING / Vegetarian / Vegan / fave vegetarian cookbook on: July 27, 2006 05:05:25 PM
morning all
i love cookbooks, and i've decided it's definitely time to get a couple of new ones (note i don't need any more, i just want some more). i'd love to hear what your recommendations are.
criteria: must be vegetarian or vegan. i don't mind a bit of fish or meat in it (a la moosewood, though i don't eat fish or meat), but to get value for money i really want it be mostly veg. cheese and eggs are fine though.
and nothing too basic, or 'vegetarian meals for folks who don't like tofu and veg'. i'm a pretty good cook (and oh so modest) and love all kinds of odd vegies, so i want interesting, challenging stuff. i esp love spicy stuff; indian, middle eastern, etc

so far i'm thinking about the land of milk and honey (or something like), a vegetarian jewish cookbook, the gate vegetarian cookbook (from an amazing london veg restaurant), and maybe a new moosewood.

in return, here are my faves:
sundays at the moosewood restaurant -- lots of interesting recipes from round the world, and they consistently work, although the servings are HUGE
the vegan meditarrean kitchen -- fresh, healthy and light, but if you don't like eggplant, tomatoes and chickpeas you won't like 50% of the recipes
the low-fat, vegetarian, indian cookbook -- yes, a rather specific cookbook, but excellent. downsides are the absolutely appalling index, all dishes are called by english names (so instead of aloo gohbi you have cauliflower and potato curry), and it's really not low-fat, but the recipes are consistently yum.
feasts from the place below -- from another london veg restaurant. good luck finding this one, but if you do, buy it. really creative, beautiful, seasonal food. i'm trying to get my hands on their other book, food from the place below, but it's only available from the restaurant itself, and, well, melbourne is a bit far from london.
the new moosewood cookbook -- nice classic with some simple ideas and recipes, but again the servings are HUGE
madhur jaffrey's world-of-the-east vegetarian cooking  -- when it says 'east', it covers a huge range of cuisines, from the middle east through india to souteast asia and north asia.
