Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"Jenny and Heather have truly spiced up vegan cuisine, making it modern, appealing and approachable for anyone looking to eat healthy food without sacrificing flavor. I always look forward to my trips back to L.A. to enjoy a meal with them." – Chef Tal Ronnen, New York Times bestselling author, The Conscious Cook

We encourage everyone to pick up this book and take the Spork adventure.”Emily Deschanel (star of the TV series 'Bones') and Zooey Deschanel (film and TV actor)

"I found Spork Foods to be tasty, fresh and delightfully carcass-free. Two stars! (out of two, so hey...pretty good!)"  – Al Yankovic (Weird Al), singer-songwriter, actor, comedian

“Spork Foods has taken vegan food to a whole new level! Their recipes are creative, delicious and very do-able at home!”  – Ed Begley Jr, activist and star of Living With Ed on Planet Green

“Their positive energy is infectious! They make you excited about all of the yummy, healthy and cruelty-free options out there.” – Alexandra Paul, film and TV actor-activist

“Heather and Jenny are an exciting addition to the vegan scene...they make veganism look goooood!”Sarah Kramer, author of How It All Vegan

“The best thing each of us can do to make a difference for animals as well as ourselves and the planet, is to adopt a vegan lifestyle.

 “Finally, Jenny and Heather have decided to write a cookbook! For years now, they have been making…and teaching people how to make…delicious, healthy food that just happens to be vegan. Vegans, vegetarians and omnivores alike will fall in love with these fabulous sisters and their amazing food. We encourage everyone to pick up this book and take the Spork adventure.”

Library Journal
Engel and Goldberg's first cookbook is filled with tempting recipes for the adventurous vegan. Co-owners of the Los Angeles-based vegan cooking class and website (sporkfoods.com), the sisters cheerily take you step-by-step through recipes for appetizers, main dishes, sides, brunch, and desserts. There is a distinctive Southern flavor, as seen in the Green Bean Casserole with Spelt Bread Crumbs and Frizzled Shallots and South Carolina Barbecue Tofu Sandwich. Suggested menus for all occasions feature helpful icons of the dish with a page number. Some of the recipes would have benefited from more testing, e.g., the Homemade "Chicken-Style" Seitan calls for far too much liquid, requiring twice as much vital wheat gluten to achieve the desired consistency. Still, this cookbook shines for its sheer inventiveness. VERDICT Recommended for vegans yearning for meat- and dairy-free versions of classic recipes and for anyone wishing to creatively incorporate more vegetables and grains into their diet.—Mary Schons, Hammond P.L., IN
