Fantastic book full of Italian, English, Egyptian and cross-cultural recipes that are all vegetarian. It is not full of photographs, but the recipes are simple and delicious.

The Duke's Table is an interesting cookbook. It features a number of similar recipes which meditatively explore certain culinary ideas. It's actually very good at explaining how the author thinks about composing dishes.

This is really a sort of outline of his cooking philosophy. It gives you excellent insight in this regard. You could learn a lot from this book. It has something it's trying to teach, but also acts as an inexhaustible recipe book.

This isn't a fancy book with a handful of recipes for a quick inspiration and pretty pictures to excite you. If that's what you want, this is not the book for you. This is an excellent translation of a historical text with a wonderful layout and a very decent index. Keep in mind this book has over 1000 recipes.

The duke who wrote this book had decedent tastes, so don't expect much in the way of "healthful" recipes. He loves his dairy products.

If you're looking for interesting approaches to hearty Italian/Mediterranean dishes for vegetarians, this is an excellent point of reference! I haven't read a book that's anything like it.
