Meet the Author
After years working off-Broadway and waiting tables in New York City, ANN GENTRY relocated to Los Angeles and, between acting gigs, became the personal chef to Danny DeVito. Word soon spread about her delicious fare and, in 1993, after five years as a home delivery service, Real Food Daily evolved into Ann's first restaurant. That original, still successful Santa Monica location brought Ann national acclaim, and she's since opened two more locations, in West Hollywood and Beverly Hills. Ann continues to receive recognition as a pioneer of organic, vegan cuisine, and her restaurants have received abundant praise from publications such as BON APPETIT, COOKING LIGHT, and the LOS ANGELES TIMES. Ann lives in Los Angeles with her husband and two children.

If for nothing else, get this book for the golden gravy recipe. I have become "famous" for bringing this gravy to many family gatherings. In fact, is preferred by all of the omnis in my family over any meat based gravy, especially on Thanksgiving. My 8 year old daughter (who is not vegetarian) has asked for it with her birthday dinner for the past 3 years. :) Beyond the gravy, this book is great. And if you ever get a chance to go to the Real Food daily restaurant, try the blackened tempeh caesar wrap. It is unreal! (the recipe for it is in the book too, which is awesome) yum
