Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
For anyone who might like to eat more purely vegetarian meals, but whose heart does not soar at the thought of nut rissoles, leaden wholemeal pizza, or a lump of dreary cottage cheese on a bed of tired leaves, I would like to put in a word for the best veggie cookbooks I have found so far.  My son turned vegetarian a few years ago, and since then I've collected a lot of good cookery books to make sure that when he visits, his meals are not just an afterthought.  These stand out: The Café Paradiso Cookbook and Paradiso Seasons, both by Denis Cotter, who has a restaurant in Cork.  

Some of the recipes are a little complicated, some are beautifully simple, but every single one I have tried tastes utterly wonderful, and there are never any complaints from carnivores - no baying for blood.

This is the very first comment I have ever written and providing a link for either of these books would be quite beyond me, I'm afraid.  Baby steps.
