Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
When Gentry opened her first vegan restaurant, Real Food Daily (RFD) in Santa Monica, Calif., in 1993, naysayers said a meat-free, dairy-free restaurant with a focus on organic produce would never make it. But Gentry knew she could serve "real food"-satisfying, nutritious and delicious cuisine-without animal products. Three RFD restaurants later, she presents this cookbook, a reflection of what she has learned about seasonal, organic, macrobiotic and vegan cooking. Gentry doesn't break new ground-sandwiches made with tempeh instead of meat, and nut cheeses like cashew cheddar will be familiar to most vegans-but she provides clear and comprehensive directions on how to make them more interesting and flavorful. For example, she adds tofu ricotta cheese to her Reuben sandwich and enhances Lentil-Walnut P t with fresh basil and thyme. Gentry explains the basics without preaching or condescending to readers, and discusses nutritional benefits without unnecessary jargon. Beginning cooks and those new to veganism will find much to enjoy here. (Oct.) Copyright 2005 Reed Business Information.

Meet the Author

After years working off-Broadway and waiting tables in New York City, ANN GENTRY relocated to Los Angeles and, between acting gigs, became the personal chef to Danny DeVito. Word soon spread about her delicious fare and, in 1993, after five years as a home delivery service, Real Food Daily evolved into Ann's first restaurant. That original, still successful Santa Monica location brought Ann national acclaim, and she's since opened two more locations, in West Hollywood and Beverly Hills. Ann continues to receive recognition as a pioneer of organic, vegan cuisine, and her restaurants have received abundant praise from publications such as BON APPETIT, COOKING LIGHT, and the LOS ANGELES TIMES. Ann lives in Los Angeles with her husband and two children.

    Delicious!

    If for nothing else, get this book for the golden gravy recipe. I have become "famous" for bringing this gravy to many family gatherings. In fact, is preferred by all of the omnis in my family over any meat based gravy, especially on Thanksgiving. My 8 year old daughter (who is not vegetarian) has asked for it with her birthday dinner for the past 3 years. :)

    Beyond the gravy, this book is great. And if you ever get a chance to go to the Real Food daily restaurant, try the blackened tempeh caesar wrap. It is unreal! (the recipe for it is in the book too, which is awesome)

    yum
