Description: As more people decide to become vegetarians -- or nearly so the scope of vegetarian meals is growing, too. No longer defined by the absence of meat, vegetarian cooking is an expansive, healthful, and delicious cuisine. No cookbook makes this more evident than The Essential Vegetarian Cookbook by Diana Shaw (Almost Vegetarian, Clarkson Potter, 175,000 copies sold). 

Filled with irresistible recipes and accessible information, The Essential Vegetarian Cookbook will be the authoritative guide to the growing population who want to eat vegetarian and need to know how. Comprehensive, witty, and instructive, the book offers more than 600 (low-fat!) dishes and features "Make It Your Own" variations, which teach cooks how to personalize recipes. 

And the recipes themselves will satisfy all appetites in all kinds of ways, from luscious muffins to creamy calzones to spicy curries to a tempting chocolate souffle cake ... that happens to be low fat. 

The spirited, substantial introduction covers the basics of vegetarian meal planning and includes everyday and festive menus as well as menus for those with dietary concerns. An extensive appendix offers tons of information about vegetarian cooking, and, throughout the book, upbeat informational sidebars provide tips on many topics, including how to choose the best ingredients and how to repair a recipe gone awry. And all of the recipes are accompanied by do-ahead tips, preparation times, storage advice, and nutritional information. Engaging, encouraging, and contagiously enthusiastic, Diana Shaw's The Essential Vegetarian Cookbook is more than a rich collection of recipes, it's a pleasure to read. Inspiring and instructional, this book will be savored by everyone who loves food of all kinds.
