Overview

Encouraging chefs to savor the cooking process, this collection of recipes provides distinctive meals using fresh, flavorful ingredients. Drawing from a variety of influences, it features diverse, innovative vegan dishes, ranging from well-known favorites such as Buttermilk Biscuits with Southern Style Gravy and Barbecue Ranch Salad to more exotic fare such as Palm Heart Ceviche and Italian Cornmeal Cake with Roasted Apricots and Coriander Crème Anglaise. A wider culinary horizon with internationally inspired dishes is offered—ideal for creating cuisine that allows people, animals, and the environment to thrive. With planned menus for all occasions; clear symbols for raw, low-fat, soy-free, and wheat-free recipes; and a section on making basics such as seitan and nondairy milks, this is an essential handbook for those interested in cooking the very best vegan food.

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Blogger, traveler, and pastry cook Tienzo's (joytienzo.com) approach to veganism ditches fake cheese and other imitation products in favor of natural ingredients such as nuts, seeds, and seaweed. The "Chèvre" in her Red Pepper-Chèvre Frittata is made from pureed raw cashews, agar flakes, and tahini. Likewise, her desserts are refreshingly free of strange-sounding egg and dairy replacements. For readers with special diets, there are symbols identifying raw, low fat, soy-free, and wheat-free recipes. VERDICT Readers tired of novelty or single-subject vegan cookbooks will appreciate this balanced collection, which provides menus for many occasions (e.g., Kid-Friendly Dinner; French Bistro Supper; Vegan Wedding Fare).
