Nice cookbook, accomplishes what it sets out to do!
am 22. Oktober 1999
This is definitely their best recipe collection for supporting the McDougall program. It is also one of the few ALL VEGAN cookbooks out there so vegans who aren't into following the program will still appreciate the effort.
The recipes were not hard to make and did not use any strange ingredients. They are pretty basic and should appeal to the average palate and the most basic of cooks. The goal with this book was not gourmet cookery, but simple, fast, effective, and relatively tasty food. I think that overall they achieved that goal and the time estimates for how long a recipe will take are pretty much accurate.
The recipes are set up with lots of room to write your own adjustments in the margins, the illustrations are pleasant but low-key so as not to overpower the text. It is a nice size and lays flat, important to me with a cookbook! Small tidbit articles pepper the book for fun info, but those do not overshadow the recipes. Afterall, a cookbook is about the recipes, not anything else!
The recipes are divided up into useful categories like "main dishes" or "bean dishes" so they are not hard to find. Often the other McDougall books seem to lean too much to southwest or tex-mex type recipes which can put anyone who is NOT a tex-mex lover off. This book has a better balance between different kinds of recipes -- italian, asian, mexican etc. MUCH better! But do look at the other cookbooks for more recipes or if you are a tex-mex fan.
More advanced vegan cooks might want to skip it, since it is truly basic stuff, but it may not hurt to peek at it anyway.
