I have a cookbook called the Voluptuous Vegan that is almost useless to me since it has no table of contents. Well, it does but the table says “Soups page 9, Main Courses 88, Desserts 326″ which isn’t even remotely helpful and a waste of paper. There are lots of sauces, salads, and sides that sound interesting but the book is arranged by menu, and it doesn’t even list the menus! So you either have to fill your copy with post it notes (but I can’t tag everything) or never use the book.
The other night while watching Doogie Howser on Hulu I made a table of contents, it probably isn’t 100% correct and proofed very well but I listed everything first by category and then by menu with all the page numbers so that you can actually find a recipe without remembering that it is called “Mushroom Filo Triangles with Delicata-Porcini Sauce”. I hope that others can enjoy it too.
Please if you have made anything from this book that you especially liked or didn’t like leave it in the comments because I have been wanting to try some different things out.
