    I am a Bittman fan and I love the original How to Cook Everything. For a man who advises sauteeing split peas in bacon fat, this book is an about face. I have made a quite a few recipes that are easy and understandable. I particularly like his intro where he discusses how the gener...

    This is one of the most useful cookbooks on my shelf. I use it several times a week and have not yet made anything that I didn't like. It has helped me try new foods with confidence. ...

    Okay, I'm only through the first 100 pages of this nearly 1,000 page cookbook, and I'm sold. I think this is the "Laurel's Kitchen" for the 21st century, and will proudly sit on my bookshelf next to it. Bittman's writing is in an easy, conversational, been there-done that level that do...

    This is my food bible. I use it primarily for technique and tips rather than recipes, but it's the best all-around vegetarian cookbook I've ever found. Mark Bittman is my hero. ...

    OH MY GOD, THIS COOKBOOK RULES. I have a crush on Mark Bittman, and this book just affirms my rockstar feelings for him. He talks about everything from what you should have in a well stocked kitchen, what ingredients you should always have on hand, how to use a knife and other kitchen ...

    This a great basic cookbook! My only issue is whether I need this giant tome in ADDITION to Deborah Madison's Vegetarian Cooking for Everyone. There's a lot of overlap, and the answer is probably no. I prefer Deborah Madison's format and style slightly, but the books are similar in...

    The absolute best cookbook around. I love the way the author creates a conversation with each recipe. "If you have this ingredient it could replace this other one" and so on. The ingredients are simple for the most part, and usually items I already have on hand. So many cookbooks call ...

    I definitely haven't read every page of this book - it's enormous! I had seen this book many times at my co-op and often scoffed at the title. I thought it would be a bunch of recipes that normally call for meat, but were altered with the simple removal of meat. I was wrong. It's a ...

    I don't usually bother adding cookbooks here. But I love this one so much, I can't bring myself to return it to the library. Something about Bittman's approach really works for me; he explains cooking concepts in ways that make me feel confident instead of intimidated. The recipes I've...

    I am giving my copy of this book away today at a book swap. Why? Not because I want to spread the love of vegetarian cooking or lifestyle. It's purely selfish. I've been torn about getting rid of this book because (a) I have many friends who swear by Mark Bittman's recipes and (b) ther...

    This book is useful not just for the recipes, but for the illustrations and instructions on how to chose, prepare and cook various types of vegetables. He addresses various staples of the vegetarian diet with brief introductions followed by recipes and tips. Non-vegetarians could f...

    You don't have to be a vegetarian to love this book. Plenty of omnivores have given this book rave reviews. I've been cooking from this book for my blog, www.theglobalkitchen.blogspot.com and everything I have made has been fabulous. I love that Bittman gives a lot of variations and tw...

    I am a Mark Bittman worshipper. There, I said it. This is my go-to cookbook for pretty much everything even though we aren't vegetarian. We make TONS of side dishes from this tome and sometimes modify slightly to include chicken or fish. I find all of his cookbooks so approachable and ...

    This is a variation on Bittman's more famous cookbook. We have been eating less meat, but simply removing meat from a recipe doesn't always work. I picked up this cookbook to get some ideas for more meatless dishes. It is very nice. There are a few things I really like about the cookbo...

    This is an amazingly comprehensive book! My two favorite things about it are: 1)The TRUE simplicity of many of the recipes. Just a handful of ingredients you have on hand and can throw together for something healthy and tasty. 2) Many of the recipes can easily be converted to vegan. H...

    This is my husband's go to cookbook. I have used it a bit, but am not the main cook at our house. I can say two things: (1) as a person not adept at cooking, this cookbook is easy to use and has tons of useful information, but more importantly (2) the recipes are wholesome and DELICIOU...

    As a sheer reference volume, this book is amazing. My experience with Mark Bittman is very limited. I might never have heard of him if I didn't work in the cookbook section at a bookstore. As much as I love food, I am just never in the know with this sort of thing. So I guess I'm n...

    Everything? EVERYTHING! No luscious photographs, but useful illustrations of techniques. This is a reference work that assumes (quite rightly in our case) that you are prepared to make that little bit of effort and make your own tortellini, wonton skins, kombu dashi, chapatis - ooh an...

    This is an interesting cookbook. Mark Bittman, who has created other cookbooks, takes a shot at a vegetarian cookbook. One nice wrinkle--he shows Vegans how they can adapt some of these recipes to their needs. He begins by noting that (Page ix) "Increasingly, Americans are becoming `fl...

    It's one of those books that everyone should have up on their shelves. (Even though he's given away all of his cookbooks because he doesn't have room in his kitchen.) It also doubles as doorstop. This sucker is heavy. I love Bittman's "keep it simple and real" attitude. I made his humm...

    I really want to like this book. I am so sick of cooking the same food all the time. I love the charts, and how most recipes have easy additions/substitutions mentioned. But I've prepared 3 things now (tomatoes and soy, Zucchini soup, and black bean chili) and they were all just ok. Ed...

    My boyfriend and I religiously cook from this book - we have used it for seven meals this weekend already! It's winter here so rather than go out for dinner we invite our friends to come over for some vegetarian fare. As a rule all recipes come from this book. They say that whe...

    This book is a great book for beginner cooks. It's very good for generic cooking advice rather than recipes. There are a large number of recipes, which cover everything that I can think of that new vegetarians should know. They're designed so that the cook can embellish them as they gr...

    The one and only. Mark Bittman is a phenomenon. You could pick one recipe or recipe variant out of here for breakfast, lunch, and dinner for the next 60 years, and still not run out of things to try. ...

    This book is literally god-sent for anyone who wants/has to cook vegetarian food and knows little about it. I love to cook but as my husband is a vegetarian I feel the number of experiments I can run are fairly limited. But after buying this book, I can feel myself becoming a better ...

    BEST. COOKBOOK. EVER. I could get rid of every other cookbook I have. I've had this one for ten years and refer to it often. I rarely pull out any of the other cookbooks I have. This guy is simple, honest, casual and creative. No crazy ingredients you can't find, no recipes tha...

    I normally don't like vegetarian cookbooks where the author comes from dictator point of view. Mark Bittman doesn't bring that to this tome. He explores each of the food groups and lets you know what worked for him. For someone who likes to explore and create when cooking, this comes...

    The problem with reading cook books is that you can't really claim that you have read this until you have tried out a few recipes. Now I haven't gone through the whole book but I did go through the detailed introduction about the basic cooking methods,techniques etc. I will try a few ...
