Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
VegNews, This Just In blog, 12/20/10
“What can we say? We like a book with moxie.”

Girlie Girl ArmyBlog, 1/22/11
“The recipes are gourmet, healthy, and totally decadent. Want it, own it, share it.”

Poor Taste Magazine, 1/26/11
“This book has a recipe for any dish you can think of—veganized. Really.”
 

InfoDad.com, 2/10/11
“A series of well-thought-out, tasty recipes that committed vegans will likely enjoy and that, in at least some cases, will appeal to non-vegans as well.”
 
Technorati.com, 2/12/11
“Cooking animal-free is not always as easy as the alternative, and sometimes a lot more expensive. However, Veganize This! provides nice variety to those who have made a commitment to ‘go vegan.’”

Tucson Citizen, 2/15/11 “If you want a vegan cookbook that is fun, features delicious foods, and will help eliminate or lessen animal products from your diet, Jenn Shagrin’s new collection might just be a perfect choice.”

Magazine, 2/19/11
“Veganize This! is clear, well laid out and the recipes are easy to follow.”

Examiner.com, 3/4/11
“A bold and inviting cookbook, full of earthy humor and sass…The recipes tend to reflect a sensibility that loves comfort food shot through with flavor. These are recipes designed to impress.”
 
MidwestBook Review, March 2011
“Any collection strong in vegan dishes will delight in this guide.”
 
VegNews, June 2011
“Readers are in for a saucy experience.”
 
San Francisco Book Review (website), 4/12/11 “A hip and sexy cookbook…With a preface to tell you, the wide-eyed health hopeful, how to stock your cupboards and what to look for at the grocery store, Veganize This! has every potential to turn non-believers into worshipers.”

The Vegetarian, August 2011
“This approach to converting meat-based meals to vegan-friendly dishes is quite inventive.”

Portland Book Review, 12/22/11 “This cook book is written with great humor. Reading this book is a pleasure, with such chapter headings as ‘Recipes Guaranteed to Get You Laid.’”

Examiner.com, 9/2/13
Veganize This! is a book that a vegan can grow with. It includes many basic staples in the diet of a committed vegan, as well as sophisticated recipes that will challenge a well-seasoned cook."

    Wish I could return this one!

    Caution: I literally ruined my very costly stand mixer trying to make the marshmallows in this book. The recipe, tried three times, failed in addition. My recommendation-don't even attempt the recipe. Several other recipes are mediocre at best, often requiring expensive and/or elusive ingredients. Recipes are long with an over-reliance on one product-MimicCreme. A couple of good ideas though.
