Publisher and industry reviews

Jacket review

At last - what every vegetarian has been waiting for: a vegetarian cookbook from Queen of Cooks, Delia Smith. Filled with mouth-watering dishes, even meat-lovers will give a second glance at this beautifully presented and illustrated recipe book. A compilation of recipes from previous Delia books, this also includes 50 new, not-been-published before recipes. As Delia says this is a "collection that spans my entire cookery career" and each recipe has been retested and updated to take account of new techniques and ingredients. With an international twist, vegetable tagines and moussakas mingle with British stalwarts such as sausage rolls and mulligatawny. Not only savoury dishes are included but her infamous puddings such as plum and almond buttermilk cobbler and apple pie are here to ensure either a full three course meal for a vegetarian dinner party or a single dish for yourself. Whichever you choose you are guaranteed success and admiration from all you serve when you choose a "Delia" and this is a long-awaited and valuable addition to every cooks collection. - Lucy Watson

UK Kirkus review

Britain's bestselling cookery author has sales of some 15 million books to her name, and this collection of vegetarian recipes is bound to increase this remarkable figure even further. Containing all the most popular dishes from her earlier books and some 50 entirely new ones, it's by far the most visually impressive Delia title yet, featuring such tempting items as Spiced Pilau Rice with Nuts, Irish Tea Bread and Carrot and Artichoke Soup. With 250 recipes, 200 photos and as many pages, this is quite as beguiling as any of its predecessors, and is not simply aimed at the vegetarian. Delia shows that there is far more to vegetarian food than the unappealing image many of us have of it - in fact, there are splendours galore in vegetarian regimes. Most of the recipes here are truly mouth-watering, and the suggestions for their preparation are as accessible and appealing as ever. In a world dominated by media-friendly chefs who use pantomime characteristics to sell their wares, Delia remains the yardstick by which all others continue to be judged. (Kirkus UK)
