    It's vegetarian!!

    I feel disappointed and mislead that the book description does not mention that the recipes are vegetarian. In fact it is not until page 5 that this information is casually revealed. I give the recipes credit though. They appear to be healthy and definitely can be prepared with ease.

    Every household should have this book!

    Living in Southern California's earthquake zone, I have the usual assortment of canned goods in my pantry. Some bottled water. And I think I know where the flashlight is. But after reading Apocalypse Chow, I realize I'm not prepared for an emergency in the way I thought I was. And I certainly don't have enough wine on hand to carry me through! Apocalypse Chow is a well-organized manual for survival, with step-by-step instructions to assist you in planning for an emergency, whether it be a thunderstorm or blackout that knocks out the power for a day, or an earthquake, hurricane, or blizzard that could put your home out of commission for a week or more. This book is informative and concise ¿ a good read that educates with a sense of humor. Jon Robertson has taken a formidable subject and has actually made it entertaining. And speaking of entertaining, the 'Pantry Cuisine' in this book will have you entertaining the neighbors during that blackout. The meal plans are creative, and the recipes are delicious. I know, because I have already tried several of them, in anticipation of putting together my 5-day Wine Box. (Now, doesn't that make you curious enough to buy this book?) Forget eating those beans out of the can. This book has an assortment of gourmet recipes that can be made in minutes, using a variety of canned goods, pasta, quick-cooking grains, condiments, and an assortment of flavor-makers. And since most are one-pot-meals, clean up is a snap. This book is a 'must-have' for everyone. Wherever you live, you never know when the power will go out, and when it does, you¿ll be prepared if you¿ve followed the advice in Apocalypse Chow.
