Review - World Food Cafe: Vegetarian Bible

Another offering from The World Food Cafe series is coming to the shelves, written by Chris and Carolyn Caldicott - owners of the former "World Food Café" in London’s Covent Garden, which was the hub of vegetarian cooking in London..

Published by Frances Lincoln; World Food Café Vegetarian Bible: Over 200 Recipes From Around The World  is the followup to the successful "World Food Café: Quick and Easy".

The new book brings together over two hundred dishes- one hundred and thirty of which are suitable for Vegans. These recipes have been collated from over two decades of globetrotting, and made appropriate for the home cook.


Dishes are featured from Africa, Asia, the Caribbean and French Polynesia. Highlights for me are the Pomegranate, Beetroot and Walnut Salad with Goats Cheese from Morocco and Cambodian Yellow Curry from Southeast Asia.

This book is not so much a recipe book as a photographic adventure of food and travel as each page you turn reveals a new delight to the eyes. The images featured are absolutely beautiful. and really make the food come alive, as do the stories and accounts of the author's travels.

I love that the authors have created a book full of recipes which can be enjoyed by Vegetarians and non-Vegetarians alike. World Food Café Vegetarian Bible: Over 200 Recipes From Around The World is on sale for £20

I am giving away a copy of  World Food Cafe: Vegetarian Bible. You can enter to win the competition via rafflecopter below.  Entrants must be UK based.

Disclosure: I received a review copy of this recipe book.

  5. Have travelled quite widely and had problems in lots of countries as a veggie!
    Turkey was by far the best for choice, there was always something I could eat from street vendors to restaurants - particularly loved Imam Bayildi, Gozleme and Borek.

  10. India was the most amazing place to visit as a vegetarian. There were so many delicious options everywhere you went and I'm convinced being veggie meant no Delhi Belly either ;) I can't wait to return.

  11. India - went to Goa a few years ago and the food was fabulous - delicate spices and a huge range of veggie options. Not at all like a British takeaway!

  12. I love Mediterrean food, but I do remember the difficulties I had in Spain trying to convince small cafe owners that pork was not vegetarian! Ultimately, though, I think that Indian and South Asian food offers the most diverse flavours and range of vegetarian foods for me

  14. Greece for me. I love the little meze dishes and there is so much variety from really fresh and healthy to more indulgent pastries - and they're all vegetarian!
