Mark Scarbrough Î Vegetarian Dinner Parties text

A perfect dinner party Why? Because vegetarian cooking for dinner parties is not part of the American culinary lexicon until nowHere critically acclaimed food writers and omnivores Bruce Weinstein and Mark Scarbrough take the reader by the hand and teach them not only how to make extraordinarily delicious and modern vegetarian and vegan dishes that everyone will love everything from sweet pea samosa This cookbook has lovely photos but unfortunately there is not a photo of each dish While the recipes look good like they will taste nice they are way too complicated for me to attempt and I can't make food look pretty like they show in the photos Most of them seem to reuire ingredients that would be difficult to find and they seem like they would take a long time to prepare like cutting the tops off of and gently scooping the seeds out of a bunch of cherry tomatoes and then stuffing and baking them way trouble than I want to do I would just chop up the tomatoes and put them in a pan and put the stuffing on top and bake it and eat it that way I received this book free to review from Netgalley
