Overview

Chloe’s Kitchen features vegan food like you’ve never seen it before.

Classically trained Chef Chloe Coscarelli brings fun and energy to this healthful, animal-free cuisine by reinterpreting 125 of America’s favorite foods with great-tasting ingredients and clever techniques. Chef Chloe burst onto the culinary scene by winning the Food Network’s hit reality show Cupcake Wars—the first time a vegan chef captured the top prize—which delighted her many fans who had been loyally following her on chefchloe.com. The new face of vegan cooking, Chef Chloe is luring foodies of all stripes to try her ingenious, accessible recipes for delicious, vibrant, beautiful food.

Chef Chloe’s first-ever cookbook is illustrated throughout with gorgeous full-color photography of the mouthwatering dishes. She begins with helpful advice on how to set up your own kitchen for stress-free, healthful eating. Chef Chloe also explains how to get all your nutrition from a plant-based diet and why it’s so healthy, with support from the foreword by renowned physician Neal D. Barnard, M.D. Then, in her fresh, dynamic style, Chef Chloe provides a huge array of incredibly appetizing, inventive recipes she has created, from savory starters to decadent desserts. Her comforting macaroni and cheese, creamy Fettuccine Alfredo, crave-inducing sliders and fries, and adaptations of the most popular Chinese, Indian, and Mexican dishes win over carnivores, omnivores, vegetarians, and vegans alike.

With Chef Chloe, eating vegan doesn’t mean giving up your favorite treats and flavors. With instructions throughout for making these meat-, egg-, and dairy-free recipes without gluten and soy, here’s how you can enjoy family favorites and her renowned, coveted desserts—including the first publication of the recipes for her Cupcake Wars– winning vegan cupcakes—without busting your belt.

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
With the explosion of vegan cookbooks on the scene, there are more meatless Monday options than ever, and this book, from the winner of the Food Network’s Cupcake Wars, is an accessible addition to the fold. Coscarelli’s focus is comfort food, and she reboots classic meat and dairy dishes with plant-based formulas. Her pantry is the foundation: international ingredients like mirin and tahini mingle with trendy health food staples like coconut oil and agave nectar. As in so many vegan cookbooks, there’s some proselytizing—and an introduction from a doctor inviting readers to try a vegan diet. For the most part, though, Coscarelli lets her food speak for itself. Crispy potato leek patties with a tofu-based lemon dip; falafel sliders with avocado hummus; and those award-winning cupcakes (ginger nutmeg spice with vanilla “buttercream” and date caramel topping) are welcome surprises. Meanwhile, creative workarounds such as cheesy broccoli soup made from soy milk and nutritional yeast flakes; spaghetti Bolognese made with mushrooms, beans, and walnuts; and fudge made from coconut milk will please even stubborn eaters. A good choice for the newly converted looking to replace their nonvegan favorites. Photos. Agent: Eric Lupfer, WME. (Mar.)
Library Journal
Coscarelli is the first vegan to win Food Network's Cupcake Wars. After an introduction to the vegan diet and a guide to pantry staples, she here offers veganized recipes for familiar favorites, e.g., Best-Ever Baked Macaroni and Cheese, Thyme for Creamy Scalloped Potatoes, Tempeh Piccata, Baked Sprinkle Donuts, and her winning Ginger Nutmeg Spice Cupcakes. Coscarelli's contagious enthusiasm and full-flavored recipes will appeal to readers who are considering going vegan but aren't sure if they're ready. Recommended for vegans interested in appetizing recipes that emphasize taste over health benefits.
Kirkus Reviews
A past winner of Food Network's Cupcake Wars presents a cavalcade of easy meatless recipes and culinary notions. The first vegan chef ever to win a Food Network competition, Coscarelli shares her wealth of knowledge on plant-based cuisine with marked enthusiasm. She opens with a variety of basic pantry-stocking items useful in vegan kitchens, explaining the particular benefits of shelf-stable coconut oil, vegan margarine and soybean-based flavorings like hoisin sauce or miso paste, as well as tempeh, a protein and fiber-rich meat replacement. The author keeps her recipes refreshingly uncomplicated (many can be prepared well ahead of serving time), dividing the book into sections such as small appetizers, soups, salads, finger foods, entrees and desserts. She concludes with a winning section on stock sauces and ingredients. For more traditional palates, mouthwatering offerings like pizzas, paninis and pastas will entice more than the international flare of main dishes like the Indian Buffet Trio, Eggplant Timbales and Seitan Scallopini. In varied recipes, Coscarelli incorporates the unique flavors of maple syrup, mustard and curry and shares tips on cleaning leeks, wrangling fragile phyllo dough and dicing mangos. The surprisingly manageable "formerly secret" recipe for her Cupcake Wars–winning vegan Ginger Nutmeg Spice Cupcakes is in good company with Iced Apple Cake Squares and agave-sweetened Yoga Cookies. Some substitutions seem stretched, however. Can sushi ever be convincingly swapped out with shiitake mushrooms? Will the flavor of dairy-free coconut and almond milk used in the "ice cream" recipes satisfy? Leaving no family member excluded, the vegan chef even includes her all-natural peanut-butter dog treats. Coscarelli's sleek volume is crisply photographed and includes the kind of straightforward, go-to recipes busy foodies can appreciate.

    Vegan, but Not Healthy Vegan

    I bought this book to support the author, who managed to show the nation that vegan fare can be just as tasty, if not tastier, than non-vegan fare. Although I did gain a few tips from the book, I was disappointed that many of the recipes are vegan, but NOT healthy vegan. Unfortunately, many people who switch to vegan simply become junk-food vegans. If you're interested in a healthy and sustainable way of eating, read The China Study, Eat to Live, Superimmunity, or watch the movie Forks Over Knives. Those explain how to live healthy until your dying day. Not only do my vegan meals taste better than their non-vegan counterparts, I never get hungry in between meals and feel better physically and mentally than I have my whole life. As Hippocrates, the father of modern medicine said, "Let your food be your medicine." Unfortunately, modern medicine ignores this wisdom because you can't make a buck off of telling people to eat their veggies.

    This is my favorite vegan cookbook so far. She uses real whole ingredients to make real balanced meals not "fake chicken patty + rice" like many of the vegan books. The recipes are delicious and easily made. I wish there were more recipes inside, but I guess I will have to wait for her to come out with another one!

    Best Cookbook I own!!

    I have never loved a cookbook as much as I love this one! I make recipes out of this cookbook multiple times a week. I make food for my non-vegan friends and family and they all ask for the recipes. I enjoy the shocked looks when I tell them the recipes are vegan. You would never know! You do not need to be a vegan to love the recipes. One other reviewer complained that it is not a healthy cookbook, but that is not entirely true. For example, I am currently eating her version of Pasta Alfredo. It is made with cashews. There is no butter, no cream, and it is divine! That is very healthy, because the only fats come from the cashews, which are healthy fats. Some of the recipes, particularly the desserts, are not healthy, but many are still healthier than their non-vegan counterparts.

    Chloe, you made me a chef!

    This cookbook is amazing, and I love it! So far I have made 3 recipes out of the book, and they have all been SUPERB. When reading the recipes, they seem unassuming, but the finished product is flavorful and restaurant quality: the fancy kind of restaurant, that prepares everything fresh, and you spend the whole time saying, wow, and this is amazing! I am so very impressed with Chloe.

    The recipes I have have made are Avocado Pesto Pasta, Maple roasted Brussels Sprouts, and Eggplant Timbales. Wow, sooo very good. Im not much for brussels sprouts, but when I tasted these, I ate them first off of my plate without even trying the main course, then I went back for seconds... brussels sprouts... really. The Eggplant Timbales were awesome, I cant say enough good things about them. I cant wait to try the other recipes in the book, as well as I cant wait to invite friends and family over to hear them make the same yum noises.

    One other great thing about this book. Chloe gives you tips on how to prepare ahead of time for a party: preparing, freezing, refrigerating, and then putting it together on party day. That is a great gem in my opinion. Even if you aren't vegetarian or vegan, you will love this book and wonder how something that doesn't have cheese, eggs, butter or bacon in it can be so delicious.

    LOVE IT!!

    I have made a few recipes out of this book and so far every single one has been AMAZING. I love that there are so many pictures, something most vegan cook books lack for some reason. Her award winning cupcakes were the best cupcakes I have ever had and I am a cupcake snob. If you like to cook and need a new variety of flavorful, doable recipes to add to your repertoire, this is it.

    I love this cookbook! I already have a few vegan cookbooks, but this book was worth the addition to my library. The cookbook has some unique dishes, common comfort food dishes (like mac & cheese), and Asian (Chinese/Indian) dishes. Thus far I have made the tempeh piccata, garlicky greens, roasted garlic mashed potatoes, maple roasted Brussels sprouts, and the Chinese noodle take out. Everything was amazing! The garlic roasted mashed potato trio tastes elegant, gourmet, and healthy with the addition of parsnips and cauliflower. The tempeh piccata was so bright and flavorful, and I generally hate meat substitutes like tempeh and tofu. The maple roasted Brussels sprouts taught me that these greens are not to be overlooked! The Chinese noodles were a splendid, healthy option for delicious Chinese food. Almost every recipe has a beautiful picture with it, inspiring you to make the dish. Plus, the recipes are made primarily with easy to find ingredients and are fairly simplistic. It’s nice to have a week day go-to cookbook for quick dinners after long days at work. All of this success and I have not even made any of Chloe’s famous desserts yet!
