Chapter to chapter the book focuses on different ingredients, from vegetables and grains to pulses and dairy products, providing fascinating information about less familiar ingredients, such as wild rice or the many new kinds of salad leaves available. Over 500 recipes draw on the whole world for their inspiration, from Thailand to Tunisia, from the Mediterranean to Mexico. Throughout Madhur Jaffrey's renowned talent for informing and inspiring her audience is apparent, and her own personal anecdotes and stories set the recipes in context. Madhur Jaffrey's World Vegetarian will be a milestone in modern cuisine and is a book which is set to be on kitchen shelves for many, many years to come.
