Editorial Reviews

One million Americans are vegans and millions more are moving in that direction. As the numbers grow and the word spreads, the variety of recipes available to vegans increase exponentially. Award-winning vegan cookbook author Terry Hope Romero (Veganomicon) has been on the forefront of that movement, which she proves resoundingly in this gathering of international vegan recipes. In Vegan Eats World, diversity both geographically and gastronomical are the keynotes. Romero's repertoire includes "saucier sauces," chutneys, and pickles; dumplings, pancake, and breads; Asiannoodles and Mediterranean pasta; rices and whole grains, one pot meals and much more. A fine gift for a fledgling or confirmed vegan.
