Overview

This innovative vegan cookbook combines the best of both worlds—comfort food + ethnic cuisine. The result is Fusion Food in the Vegan Kitchen, a delicious, experimental type of cooking popular in California and quickly taking the vegan world by storm. Its focus is not only on fresh, local ingredients, but also the amazing flavors found in different world cuisines. Think Korean pulled “pork” sandwiches, jalapeno mac ’n’ cheese, and Mexican hot chocolate cake. Traditional, with a twist!
 
Author and California native Joni Marie Newman will treat you to more than 100 innovative recipes, all featuring whole foods ingredients that can be found at almost any grocery store or farmer's market—no store-bought faux meats, mayos, cheeses, or the like. Recipes will also feature low fat, soy free, and gluten free options for those with special dietary needs. Push the envelope on taste and take plant-based cooking to a whole new level with Fusion Food in the Vegan Kitchen.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"

In her vibrant new cookbook, California native and self-taught cook Newman (Vegan Food Gifts) shares vegan recipes that blend Indian, Mexican, Korean, Filipino, and other international flavors. Playful fusion dishes such as miso mac and cheese, tamale shepherd's pie, and Mexicannoli emphasize fresh ingredients over premade meat and dairy substitutions and encourage readers to try new techniques (e.g., freezing and thawing tofu to release extra moisture, incorporating ground seaweed into condiments). Cooking tips appear throughout, as well as icons denoting gluten-, nut-, and soy-free choices. VERDICT Featuring some exceptionally bold sauces, drinks, and small plates, this well-balanced collection will tempt adventurous vegans. Highly recommended." - Library Journal"

Another book that will help take your home vegan cooking to the next level is Fusion Food in the Vegan Kitchen by Joni Marie Newman. Not content to rely on the dishes of just one country, Newman presents recipes that combine flavors and styles of two or three different countries or cultures." - Nashville Scene

Exceptional cookbook! The pictures are enticing, the recipes are delicious and easy to follow. What more can you ask for?? I am not vegan and still enjoyed these recipes. Yum! I really love this author, her books are always inventive, her narrative is youthful and really makes me feel like I'm cooking in the kitchen with my best friend. Additionally, her other works have helped me expand on my omnivore lifestyle opening my world to more amazing foods.
