Here's some reviews from the experts:

"Kurma Dasa is one of the world's most high profile vegetarians. . . In Vegetarian World Food, by Kurma Dasa, vegie fans will find recipes from Asia, the Middle East, Europe, the Mediterranean and the Americas."

"Through his classes at Drysdale Tafe Tasmania I've formed a much greater appreciation of Kurma Dasa than I ever did on TV (must be something to do with actually tasting the food). Best known for his Indian cooking, in Vegetarian World Food Kurma collects favourites from all over the world - the Mediterranean, Middle East, South-East Asia, the Americas and some from the rest, with India most represented. The flavours are strong and varied. In a Kurma Dasa spread, there's no sense of something lacking. I've tried the Panir, home-made cheese (use Pyengana Real milk for best results) and the Deep-fried Milk Fudge Balls in Rose Syrup, so feel safe in assuming the rest are as good as they look. Confirmed vegetarians will love this, and so will those trying to have more meat-free days or to eat more vegetables."
