¿The Hippy Gourmet¿ is a PBS show. The chefs travel from exotic area to exotic area, sampling and cooking great foods. This cookbook is for vegans. They do have a few recipes for fish, but no other meats. Some of the recipes are typical, such as French Freedom Toast and Currant Bran Muffins. Other recipes are a bit too ¿earthy¿ for my taste, such as Vegan Miso Soup and ¿Meat¿ Balls and Pasta. The recipes are easy to follow. No fancy culinary words are used without being explained first. However, I believe every cookbook should have pages that you can wipe off after something splatters on them. I also think cookbooks should have a binding that allows the pages to stay put while you cook¿without weighing them down with can goods and etc¿. The best part of the book is the anecdotes. Though I am not at all a hippy, I do greatly respect their attempts to inspire all to buy from local farmers. I also appreciate their support of hemp as a way to save farms. I may actually visit a whole foods store and farmers market one day, thanks to Brennan and Ehrlich. In a nutshell, the authors explain, ¿People often view eating vegan and vegetarian cuisine as some kind of sacrifice. In fact, living the hippy way isn¿t a sacrifice at all. It¿s a celebration of doing good and living well.¿ If you love to cook, respect the environment, and are interested in the vegan lifestyle, this is a great book to become familiar with.
