We ate at True Food Kitchen in Sedona and bought the cookbook to make these foods at home. So far every recipe we've used is great, and the book is beautiful, too!

I made the sweet potato and poblano chile soup and it was dreadful! I followed the recipe exactly but it was soo watery that I spent the next hour trying to fix it. The proportions of liquid to veggies is very far off. Sure, the pictures look nice, but I now have my doubts. Also, there's so much meat in these recipes that there isn't a lot for a vegetarian to make.

I enjoyed this book and support the idea, but it requires ingredients that are not easy for me to find. I am disabled and cannot travel all over the city of Chicago to find the proper ingredients.  Also, I have an illness that does not allow me to eat tomatoes due to the acid content , plus I cannot eat any spices that can create heat. I will need to make several substitutions in order to use this book and I am not sure what would be appropriate.  So, even though everything sounded really good, I am feeling  a little lost in how to use it.
