More reviews and no fluff on the blog This is a beautifully presented well thought out cookbook and planner designed to make vegetarian themed dinner parties easy and flavorful Most recipes are designed for 6 8 people a number the authors consider ideal But the book is not just recipes there is also a lot about planning before and then presenting during the event From playlists to lighting seating orders to what dishes work best together This is a complete all in one resources for a great dinner party and suitable for than vegetarians the authors hope hosts get a better understanding and appreciation of our most underused food the vegetableThe book breaks down as follows 1 Twelve ways to say welcome 2 No plates needed 3 Small plates 4 Salads and soups 5 pastas 6 large plates 7 Final plates As you can see from the titles of the chapters this is written so that the party organizer can arrange the meals not like a buffet but as they do in today's trendy restaurants no side dishes and instead several one item plates from which diners eatThe recipes are divided into seven types that follow the arc of a dinner party cocktails and nibbles to go with them small plates salads soups pastas large plates and desserts Between each chapter are tips on what to serve and how to move alongtransition the party Helpful tips such as keeping guests from congregating around the kitchen or preventing a between course hitch when plates have to be removed are presented in the appropriate places in the bookAll recipes have a plan ahead section to make it easier on the host steps to do in advance as well as storing items before the party They are also flexible the authors give tips on how to ramp them up or tone them downThe recipes are beautifully presented and made to be easy to follow by using different colored type and fonts Each recipe has a paragraph introduction easily readable ingredients list preparation steps in numbered paragraph form an AHEAD section for what needs to be made hours in advance a NOTES section on any tips that are important but not necessarily a part of the recipe a MENU of which plates go great with this recipe to put together a whole party menu and of course POUR appropriate drinks to accompany that plateThe recipes are varied from watermelon panzanella capers basil to elderflower spritz There are some exotic recipes in here but for the most part there are a lot of staples from the local supermarket This is a well written book but what keeps it from being 5 stars is the sheer lack of images to show how the recipes should be presented When I see the presentations in the few photographs that are in the book I am honestly daunted because I never would have suspected to show it that way Since presentation is so important in a dinner party the lack of images is disappointing and really takes away from the efficacy of the bookReviewed from an ARC

A special thank you to Rodale Books and NetGalley for an ARC in exchange for an honest review After reviewing two sensational other Vegan Cookbooks recently found VEGETARIAN DINNER PARTIES to be lacking in comparison “Presentation is everything” when it comes to food and entertaining First and most importantly –food photography As most can see by my website my Pinterest Clipzine and Tumblr social media boards—top priority If you are putting together a high end cookbook spend the money on high resolution imagery Due to the poor low res images and dark photography—a lower overall rating Not appealing if you can get past the images for the recipes Since the book was about entertaining would have been fitting for table settings to set the mood thereby enticing the reader In addition not a fan of some of the pages with dark background and white font making it difficult to read The positives – the well laid out pages the call outs the vegan recipes as I am an avid vegan so always looking for ways to enhance my healthy eating lifestyle choice The fonts colors columns are nicely displayed on the white background on the recipe pages A great source for dinner parties and a good understanding and education of vegetables The authors demonstrate how to build dinner parties starting with flavors seasonality and availability and even time and skillThe recipes are divided into seven types which go along with the order of a dinner party cocktails and nibbles to go with them small plates salads soups pastas large plates and desserts Between each chapter are helpful tips on what to serve and how to move along during a party The introductions ingredients and preparation steps were helpful with a menu of which plates to with certain recipes etc A wide variety of recipes; however since I am a vegan need to substitute the milk cheese and dairy products All in all full of wonderful ways to entertain vegetarian style and will use the book for reference and try many of the recipes; however disappointed in the food styling and photography which would have made this a 5 star instead of a 3
