The Complete Italian Vegetarian Cookbook by Jack Bishop

The Complete Italian Vegetarian Cookbook

This uniquely accessible collection draws together the best vegetarian recipes of Italy-350 in all. 'Pasta and pizza may be Italy's most eye-catching exports, but it is the country's varied and sensible use of vegetables that provides the best inspiration for American cooks,' writes Jack Bishop.

Reviews The Complete Italian Vegetarian Cookbook

  • Yodamom
    My daughters and I have made more than half the recipes and loved them all. Delicious well spiced dishes with easy to follow instructions. You don't have to be a vegetarian to get enjoyments out of this book the flavors will make every the hardcore carnivore wish for more.
  • Kat
    Lots of great recipes - as authentic as I can possibly imagine (see, Nonna - Italians don't have to eat meat in everything)! I just wish there were more photos - the images really make a cookbook special for me.

    The recipes are simple and the outcome is delicious. Many of my favorites are only 3-5 ingredients. I taught myself to cook by working my way through this collection and serving the results to friends in 2005-6. Fritattas, sauces, vegetable side dishes, risottos. The leek and tomato sauce with thyme is a great starter for soup. Now that I am starting to bake, i get to explore new chapters! Jack works for America's Test Kitchen now.

    This is one of my very favorite cookbooks! Everything is so delicious, it might as well be gourmet, but so easy to cook it's my go to cookbook for busy nights. I've even thrown an elegant dinner party with these recipes, and it never fails to impress, and has never let me down.
  • Katie
    my most-used cookbook
  • Liz
    This is one of my favorite cookbooks. To me, the tomato tart recipe alone is nearly worth the price of the book. I have yet to make a single bad recipe from this cookbook.
  • Adrian Piazza
    A great guide to expand your Italian repertoire. It is more about good food and less about how to do without meat.
  • Tiffany
    Every recipe I've tried from this cookbook has turned out to be delicious, and many have become family favorites.
  • Andrea
    This book rarely sees a shelf - it's always in our kitchen! Reliable recipes that are full of flavor.
  • Noreen
    Every recipe I've tried in this book is excellent. It offers many options that do not include the traditional pasta, such as gnocchi, risotto, and polenta.
  • Kecia
    I looked and looked and looked but I could not find a single recipe that I wanted to try out. Disappointing.
  • Shannon Lionheart
    Vegetarian cookbook that non-vegetarians will enjoy and many recipes can be made vegan!
  • Loraine
    Pesto, pizza, polenta and lots and lots of vegetarian dishes of the finest kind are in this book. If I had any space I would buy it and add it to my kitchen bookshelves. Yum!
  • Erin Hames
    This is one of our family's go to cookbooks. We use the risotto section all the time. A great addition to any kitchen.
  • Judy
    My favorite cookbook and the one I go to most often.
  • Ellen Stroud
    An essential cookbook. Everything recipe I have tried has been both delicious and beautiful.
  • Jane
    Everything in this is good. Everything.
  • Amelia Halverson
    I just checked this out from the library and am really excited about a lot of these recipes, yum!
  • Melissa
    Everything I made from this cookbook was delicious and easy. The recipes are simple, with only a few ingredients. For example, a pizza with only a crust and sauteed onions and rosemary - it was actually really good! I made pizzas, pasta dishes, panini, polenta, risotto, and salads. The only problem I encountered was with the pizza crust recipe, which I couldn’t get to rise properly and ended up substituting a different crust recipe. I suspect t...
