The Global Vegetarian
Although the majority of people around the world are not traditionally vegetarian, there is an increasing trend towards it. Not so long ago, travellers found it challenging to locate any vegetarian food options outside their own homes and regions. This is no longer the case as vegetarianism has gained support, particularly in countries that were once exclusively non-vegetarian. For reasons of health, personal beliefs, as well as ecology, more and more people now recognise the value of a vegetarian diet and most menus offer vegetarian options. As the number of people travelling globally has increased exponentially, they have also been exposed to different cultures and cuisines. This in turn has led to a burgeoning interest in innovative as well as traditional vegetarian cooking. This book brings together international flavours, foods, and cooking techniques, selected from the world travels of the three authors and their passionate interest in gastronomy, one of the finest spices of life. They joyously present a plethora of vegetarian dishes for family meals as well as for entertaining friends. This vegetarian collection of delicious dishes is an integral part of the mainstream, culinary experience.
