Native Foods Restaurant Cookbook by Tanya Petrovna

When people ask Tanya Petrovna, "Are you a strict vegetarian?" she replies, "No, I'm a fun vegetarian!" The visionary behind the Native Foods chain of restaurants, Tanya is known for creating cuisine that is nutritious, organic, compassionate, and delicious. And with signature dishes like her dairy-free cheesecake made from cashew nuts, she proves that healthy, animal-friendly eating can be indulgent and fun.

Now, with this book, Tanya's best recipes can be made at home, including: "Fun Mung Curry," "Seitan Olé Mole," and "Rockin' Moroccan Skewers." Plus, there are plenty of outrageous desserts such as "Elephant Chocolate Cake with Cinnamon Peanut Butter Topping," "Sam's Vegan Cheesecake," and "Chocolate French Silk Lingerie Pie."

The Native Foods Restaurant Cookbook also contains glossaries of ingredients, utensils, and cooking methods and instructions for making your own seitan from scratch.

This book was recommended to me by a vegan chef whom I hired so I could learn to cook some healthier meals. The Tempeh pate recipe (serve it w/plain, unsalted rice crackers, mmmm . . . ) is worth the price of the book alone. I have tried the tempeh provencal recipe, and I didn't find that to my liking, but I think some of my ingredients weren't of the highest quality and may have been old . . . I have eaten at the Native Foods Restaurant a couple of times and the food is excellent - if you get a chance eat at one of her locations (I frequent the Westwood one). She has a website, but since we're not supposed to put links in the page, just type native Foods in your search engine - it should find it . . . I have eaten a lentil soup, a cauliflower 'Cream' soup, a baja surf ('fish') taco and the Bali Surf Burger at the restaurant. Unfortunately, only the Surf Burger is included in the recipe book - but all were FABULOUS. I am no culinary expert by any stretch of the imagination, but I am picky and these recipes are easy to follow - and that Tempeh Pate, you just have to try it (a sidenote: the deglaze recipe for the tempeh can get a little salty, so I used 1/4c of soy sauce for the deglaze instead of the 1/2c the recipe calls for)! Even though I haven't had the chance to try many of the recipes, I am looking forward to trying more . . . judging from her restaurant fare and the pate recipe, I'm confident this book will earn a prominent place in my cookbook library!

This is one of my favorite cook books. Tanya has given all her secrets and holds nothing back.Every recipe I have made taste just like I am at Native Foods. This is a must have for the Native Food lover.
