    I can't tell you the number of times I picked up this cookbook and looked through it before coming across it on a bookstore sale table for $7.98 and finally buying it--despite my vow to stop adding to my cookbooks and start paring them down. It was just to hard to resist. Mary McCa...

    Pretty heavy on some dietary no nos - dairy, wheat, flour, etc. Otherwise, great introduction and photography (of course). Adapted one of the recipes - the butternut squash soup - and it tasted great. The author herself recommends adaptations since the recipes in the book are guide...

    One of the very prettiest cookbooks I've ever seen. I'll be honest I totally judge cookbooks by their pictures :) doesn't even really matter to me if the recipes aren't great, just the pictures. ...

    Here is a colourful book that sets out to provide a range of "home cooking" recipes for vegetarians as well as, perhaps providing a bit of an introduction to meat-free eating for those who still have rather outdated views towards vegetarianism. In case you think the name might be fa...

    There is much to love about Mary McCartney's cookbook Food, though there are some oddly irritating aspects. The photography is lovely, the dishes are simple, easy to follow and consistent. The use of spices and other seasonings is on the subtle to bland side, though, obviously one can ...

    I keep coming back to the lemon cupcakes and the veggie hotpot. I am such a fan of the author's mother. Linda McCartney inspired me to try vegetarian food in the 80's and I'm hooked on healthy eating as an integral part of my life because of it. Every recipe I've tried is spot on. Unli...

    Needed some new ideas for recipes to use at home. Didn't fancy much of the larger ones but some of the brunch ones seem tasty and I will probably try. I also think the lemon drizzle cake and the brownie (no fuss) recipe will be used a fair bit in our house. ...

    I go to this cookbook often. As someone who is mainly vegetarian, I find these recipes to be easy to make and easy to tweak should I desire a little variation. The photographs are plentiful and gorgeous, and so far everything I've made from this book has been yummy! ...

    Accessible recipes that range from easy to sorta complicated. I marked several to make and have tried two - one of which was not soup! Will try other things from this as the recipes were creative and not the routine stuff I see in a lot of veggie cookbooks. ...

    Sumptuous food photography, great everyday recipes. I love, love that she had to make these memorized recipes and jot them down to write this cookbook. That is the best way to cook, to know how to make things with what is in the pantry. Glad to learn some new ones. ...

    Yes, Mary is from THAT McCartney family; daughter of Paul and Linda, sister to Stella... Full of beautiful color photographs and wonderful, never boring-looking vegetarian recipes that reflect Mary's British/American roots. ...

    I adore this cookbook. For once, a cookbook described as simple and tasty is actually both simple and tasty. I will make every recipe in this book because they sound delicious and easy and I won't have to venture from my usual supermarket to find the necessary ingredients. Yay! ...

    Vegetarian recipes simple enough to add to your weekly menu. Beautiful photos. ...

    vegetarian ...

    Yum! I will be buying my own copy of this ASAP, as these vegetarian recipes are just the kind of thing I like. ...

    There wasn't anything new to me in this cookbook, but then I read a lot of cookbooks. If you're looking to start doing meatless Monday, these are some painless and tasty things to start with. ...

    I rarely buy cook books but this book was honestly way too beautiful to pass up! It is so elegant and beautiful and a real piece of beauty. ...

    Gorgeous photos! ...

    Plain, simple cooking, but nothing that grabbed my attention (besides the gorgeous cover). ...

    Some good recipes. ...

    Great book, simple recipes and amazing pictures! ¡La comida entra por los ojos! ...

    Quite a lot of fillers, both twee photos and not-really-recipe recipes... but a couple of things to try out - my flatmate and I are having the coconut rice pudding tomorrow. ...

    This is a cookbook with simple vegetarian recipes, the type of food one would actually cook using fresh ingredients. The photos are wonderful. ...

    I tried several recipes and they were very good. Easy to follow with pretty mainstream ingredients. ...

    Every recipe I've tried so far is excellent, especially the mac and cheese. This cookbook is wonderful! ...

    Simple recipes, simple ingredients. Nothing really that tempted my palate. The photography was really great though. I think I enjoyed the photos of the food more than the recipes. ...

    Mary McCartney deserves 4 stars for her beautiful photography, but only 2 stars for the recipes. ...

    There is much to love about Mary McCartney's cookbook Food, though there are some oddly irritating aspects. The photography is lovely, the dishes are simple, easy to follow and consistent. The use of spices and other seasonings is on the subtle to bland side, though, obviously one can ...

    I keep coming back to the lemon cupcakes and the veggie hotpot. I am such a fan of the author's mother. Linda McCartney inspired me to try vegetarian food in the 80's and I'm hooked on healthy eating as an integral part of my life because of it. Every recipe I've tried is spot on. Unli...

    Needed some new ideas for recipes to use at home. Didn't fancy much of the larger ones but some of the brunch ones seem tasty and I will probably try. I also think the lemon drizzle cake and the brownie (no fuss) recipe will be used a fair bit in our house. ...

    I go to this cookbook often. As someone who is mainly vegetarian, I find these recipes to be easy to make and easy to tweak should I desire a little variation. The photographs are plentiful and gorgeous, and so far everything I've made from this book has been yummy! ...

    Accessible recipes that range from easy to sorta complicated. I marked several to make and have tried two - one of which was not soup! Will try other things from this as the recipes were creative and not the routine stuff I see in a lot of veggie cookbooks. ...

    Sumptuous food photography, great everyday recipes. I love, love that she had to make these memorized recipes and jot them down to write this cookbook. That is the best way to cook, to know how to make things with what is in the pantry. Glad to learn some new ones. ...

    Yes, Mary is from THAT McCartney family; daughter of Paul and Linda, sister to Stella... Full of beautiful color photographs and wonderful, never boring-looking vegetarian recipes that reflect Mary's British/American roots. ...

    I adore this cookbook. For once, a cookbook described as simple and tasty is actually both simple and tasty. I will make every recipe in this book because they sound delicious and easy and I won't have to venture from my usual supermarket to find the necessary ingredients. Yay! ...

    Vegetarian recipes simple enough to add to your weekly menu. Beautiful photos. ...

    vegetarian ...

    Yum! I will be buying my own copy of this ASAP, as these vegetarian recipes are just the kind of thing I like. ...

    There wasn't anything new to me in this cookbook, but then I read a lot of cookbooks. If you're looking to start doing meatless Monday, these are some painless and tasty things to start with. ...

    I rarely buy cook books but this book was honestly way too beautiful to pass up! It is so elegant and beautiful and a real piece of beauty. ...

    Gorgeous photos! ...

    Plain, simple cooking, but nothing that grabbed my attention (besides the gorgeous cover). ...

    Some good recipes. ...

    Great book, simple recipes and amazing pictures! ¡La comida entra por los ojos! ...
