Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

“I am sober chic, but I adore the Sexy Vegan’s recipes and use them often to feed my alkie and non-alkie friends, various undetermined stragglers from last night’s dinner party, and, of course, my own face.”
Krista Allen, actress, vegan, sober partier, feeder of friends, doer of things

“So delicious, fun, and easy, the Sexy Vegan’s recipes make even me want to cook!”
Dr. Jenn Berman, host of VH1 Couples Therapy

“I’ve never had so much fun using a cookbook as I did with The Sexy Vegan’s Happy Hour at Home! With his creative recipes, kitchen tips, drink pairings, and pre-made shopping lists, Brian Patton provides everything needed to dazzle friends with the perfect vegan happy hour. Happy Hour at Home is more than just a cookbook, it’s a recipe for a good time.”
Quarrygirl, quarrygirl.com

“Brian Patton is crazy, but he’s the fun kind of crazy, the kind of crazy person that you want to go to a party with, and when you wake up in the morning you can’t believe how much fun you had and that you didn’t get arrested. The Sexy Vegan’s Happy Hour at Home is a glimpse into the crazy that is Brian Patton. The recipes are delicious and fun to make, and they wouldn’t be Brian Patton recipes if they weren’t also funny. Bring Happy Hour at Home home with you. You won’t regret it.”
Sarah Kramer, coauthor of How It All Vegan!

“The Sexy Vegan...doesn’t hesitate to tell readers that they will love this, his second sexy cookbook. And he’s right! He’s created another winner. Organized into menus instead of chapters, with preparation for each menu requiring only about an hour, and topped off with a selection of special cocktails at the end, your customers won’t be able to resist this one.”
Anna Jedrziewski, Retailing Insight

    Fabulous and Effective Sophomore Offering. Often the 2nd offerin

    Fabulous and Effective Sophomore Offering. Often the 2nd offering from a new author doesn't measure up. 
    Mr. Patton gives at least as good, perhaps even better recipes than offered in the original "Sexy Vegan" cookbook. 
    I and my testers loved the Hearts of Palm Ceviche. The texture is perfect and the flavors stunning. 

    In addition, the Mango Gazpacho made a big home run during the trial dinner. You'll find the recipes grouped in
    a menu-style format.Although I tried recipes from a couple different menus, the combinations make it easy to
    create a complete experience for your next small gathering. I also appreciated that each recipe make 4 servings.
    The second time I made the Gazpacho, I served larger servings for my husband and I at dinner. Many recipes
    make an overwhelming amount; I found these recipes a nice change.
     
    To date, I have so many recipes I want to make from this book we will be eating Sexy Vegan creations for
    quite a while. I highly recommend this book--and the first one--and hope you will enjoy it as much as we did!
