"This book succeeds best at making cooking vegetarian dishes seem a simple and pleasant affair: light on the rhetoric, inclusive in the foods and regions represented, easy on the cook, and pleasing to the eye and the palate. This book will be helpful for cooks looking for an introduction to vegetarian cooking, or cooks seeking a little more global variety in their menus." - Teresa Scollon, ForeWord, December 2010.

"The Global Vegetarian Kitchen is a gorgeous collection of 120 + easy to prepare vegetarian recipes that are both nourishing and sustainable. Presenting a focus on using, buying or growing "green" organic vegetables that are as free of contaminants as possible, The Global Vegetarian Kitchen delivers a life-enhancing message in the form of promoting caring, responsible vegetarian and vegan cooking. Needless to say, it is cuisine that is fresh, appetizing, and zesty, with international influences.

"The Global Vegetarian Kitchen by Troth Wells is a collection of fabulous recipes, many of which have been passed down generations, from across the globe. Brandishing the motto, Cook Global, Source Local, Wells had put together a fantastic four-chapter cookery book: Starters, Soups And Snacks, Main Dishes, Salads, Side Dishes And Sauces and Dessert, Drinks And Cakes. With a growing interest in vegetarianism and veganism, this book is a one-stop shop for all your gastronomic needs. The recipes, of which there are more than 100, are juxtaposed with colourful photographs, proving that there is more to eating than meat. The most delightful element of this book, however, is the short and sweet family and historic storiy behind each recipe. No matter your cuisine of preference there will be something from one of the continents to get your taste buds tingling." - Charlotte Jones, Glam Magazine.

"This is quite possibly my favourite cookery book to hit the shelves this year." - Charlotte's VVeb.
