The book that taught America how to cook,
now illustrated with glorious color photography
A fresh and original way to put the classic advice of Joy of Cooking to work -- illustrated and designed in a beautiful and easy-to-use new book.
Sixty years after Irma Rombauer advised new cooks to "Stand facing the stove," America's love affair with Joy of Cooking continues unabated. And why not? Joy in hand, tens of millions of people -- from novices to professionals -- have learned to do everything from make a meat loaf to clean a squid to frost a wedding cake. For decades, Joy of Cooking has taught America how to cook, serving as the standard against which all other cookbooks are judged.
All About Vegetarian Cooking upholds that standard. While keeping the conversational and instructional manner of the flagship book, All About Vegetarian Cooking is organized by ingredient and type of dish. Chapters include stocks and soups, salads, vegetables, beans and tofu, pastas and grains, and eggs, and incorporate more than 100 of Joy's bestloved vegetarian recipes, from Roasted Vegetable Lasagne to Greek Spinach and Cheese Pie. You'll also find information on nutrition for vegetarians, planning menus, and rules for serving sizes, as well as tips and techniques for buying, storing, and preparing fresh vegetables. Add to that more than 150 original photographs, specially commissioned for this volume, presented in the most easy-to-use design imaginable.
Whether you belong to one of the millions of American households that already own a copy (or two) of Joy, or you have never cracked the spine of a cookbook before, Joy of Cooking: All About Vegetarian Cooking is for you. It is a spectacular achievement, worthy of its name. Joy has never been more beautiful.
The Indispensable Kitchen Resource...
All-New, All-Purpose, and now All-in-Color
After more than 60 years, we've learned to trust America's favorite cookbook to provide clear, well-written recipes that always work for dishes as diverse as falafel, spanakopita, and succotash. Perusing its pages, however, used to be a very plain experience. Now it's just plain mouthwatering! The full-page photograph of the Grilled Eggplant and Roasted Red Pepper Panini dish--focaccia with tapenade and fresh mozzarella--is a showstopper and leaves nothing to the imagination. The big earthenware bowl of Winter Vegetable Couscous redefines comfort food. And the golden, crispy crust on the Persian Rice, made with basmati rice, saffron, onions, and dried apricots, will leave you breathless and starving. Somehow, we never noticed these gems buried deep in the big Joy. Mixed together in the vegetables section, we didn't realize until now how many of them are dishes that can stand alone as entres.
Joy has always been a good bet for kitchen novices, but these volumes go the extra step by illustrating the finished dish (always reassuring for a beginner) and suggesting many useful techniques, such as how to separate eggs, press tofu, and prepare artichokes. For those of us who already own a copy (or two) of the original tome, this adaptation is simply inspirational and a great addition to anyone's cookbook library. The presentation is so beautiful and stimulating, you'll hardly recognize that the recipes are the good old reliables, all dressed up and ready to go. --Leora Y. Bloom
