Really like the variety of regional cuisines represented here--Indian, Japanese, Chinese, Philipino. etc. etc. Though I''ve tried just a small fraction of the offerings, the recipes I''ve used have become favorites. Somewhere between 1985 and 2014, the book starting falling apart after all the times I''ve pressed the book flat and bent page corners. I was glad to see the book is in print so I could replace it.

This book is particularly helpful for anyone looking for a wide variety of taste sensations and ideas of what to do with vegetables and beans. Having grown up in a non-Asian family in the U.S.A Midwest, I wouldn''t have a clue as to how to recreate the kinds of meals found in restaurants, but this book offers plenty of info and recipes for people not exposed to the types of cooking covered here. This book will help you get your curry on!

Bought this as a gift. Madhur Jaffrey''s book is still the definite source for a variety of vegetarian cooking. Helped me during bitter winter nights in Syracuse and I left it for a friend. Now I am hoping it will inspire another friend to get creative with her interest in vegetarian cookery. Madhur Jaffrey has a nice style, explanations and even if this book doesn''t have pictures, it leaves you with a yen - to get into the kitchen!

The food I''ve made from this book has been delicious. The only problem for me is that the ingredients aren''t the ones I''ve traditionally used for cooking. As I expand my spices and herbs, I find more things to put together. So far, each recipe I''ve made has me doing a lot of slicing and chopping. I expect, as I make more of them, I will find some short cuts that will help. All in all I would recommend this cookbook for anyone wanting to spice up their vegetarian meals. I''d also suggest buying a couple more with easier recipes to fall back on when you don''t have a lot of time.

Wonderfully, illustrated, with enticing embellishments, Madhur Jaffrey''s introduction to Eastern Vegetarian cookery is a wow, and a must-have, for any aspiring beginner of preparing delicious vegetables from the Eastern sectors of the World. Being that I studied India primarily, and consider myself formidable in the art of Indian cuisine,I am only just reading this, and giggling and drooling as I know what the outcome of these recipes are. Written in 1982,(let''s see, I was a bagel baker in my first marriage) don''t bee discouraged as timeless recipes shine through the glimmer of mere aging humans. Remember, you might lose your teeth, but never your taste buds.

I ordered this book & her Eastern Vegetarian Cooking, only to find out they are the same book but by different publishers.This is the American version and laid out in a little different order due to the American version of the names for some vegetables. It is the same wonderful source of recipes from all over the Far East showcasing a variety of cuisines. If you live in a fairly large city you should be able to find some of the harder ingredients in an ethnic grocery but substitutions shouldn''t be too hard. I look forward to really exploring this book and trying out the dishes she describes.

We are not a vegetarians, but this book helped me round out my family''s diet to include several very tasty vegetarian dishes. My family loves all that I have tried and some of the dishes have become regular fare with us. You may need to expand your spice and sauce collection as you make the first few dishes, but once that is done almost all of the ingredients are available at your grocery store. The sample menus at the back help you navigate through this book. Ms. Jaffrey introduces many recipes with when and on what occasion that food is eaten. She also helps with where to get some of the more exotic ingredients. Recipes come from India, China, Japan, Korea, and the Middle East.

This is a gift for my niece who is a vegetarian and this is my favorite vegetarian cookbook. Mostly because it has a variety of recipes some complex some very simple but all with wonderful flavor. Many vegetarian cookbooks try to make meatless versions of dishes that really need meat to make them taste good. The recipes in this book are not attempts to subtract the meat and make it still taste good. They are from a variety of cultures where vegetarianism has been important for a very long time.

The recipes are lovely the problem is that they are time consuming and it is impossible to cook from a basic shopping list and conventional supermarket. There is not one recipe that does not require a trip to a specialty shop, the out come is that the book is never used...her recipes also have reference to other recipes in the book but with out page numbers hence time taken to look the word up and then to look up the second part of the original recipes making it all the more time consuming....I guess if I lived in NY york and all the ingredient were not too far away it would be a yummy experience but unhappily that is not the case.

Terrific cookbook, it enabled me to make a smooth transition from meat-based to vegetarian diet. This is my third copy, the first one was purchased in 1982, if I had to have one cookbook only, this would be the one.

Actually if you can own only one book at all it is still this one. I am not strictly vegetarian, but most of my cooking is. This book is incredibly versatile, quite like the title says "World-of-the-East" from eastern Europe to Japan. You could cook from this book everyday and never get bored. I''d been treating my non-vegetarian friends and parents (not used to eastern flavors) with dishes from this book and they quite liked it. Some dishes are laborious or calling for many ingredients, but most are rather simple. The book is structured into sections covering vegetables, beans, rice, soy products, eggs, milk, pastries and noodles, all sorts of dips and side dishes and finally desserts. In each section in addition to recipes there are introductory "how-to" tips. At the end you will find extensive glossary of eastern ingredients and good index. As the only cons, alike other reviewers, I find the paperback copy not solid enough for heavy use.
