A fabulous collection of recipes from one of the best vegetarian restaurants in Ireland. Denis Cotter head chef and co-founder of Cafe Paridiso has a great understanding of his ingredients and vegetarian food as a world of food rather than a limitation. This is one of my favourite vegetarian cook books. The recipes are innovative and leave one wondering what to try next.
The book is clearly laid out with plenty of back up recipes and knowledge to help you along. Recipes include such exciting dishes such as Gingered Sweet Potato Spring Roll, Thai Tofu-Cashew Fritters and Deep Fried Courgette Flowers of Sheep's Cheese and Pine Nuts. Along with down to earth dishes Roasted Tomato Soup, Squash, Butterbean and Leek Stew and Rhubarb Shortbread. This is a great gift for lovers of food who would like to learn how to prepaqre vegetarian food.
