Book Description

Oct. 1 2002

When How It All Vegan!: Irresistible Recipes for an Animal-Free Diet was published in 1999, authors Tanya Barnard and Sarah Kramer were hailed for their fun and outlandish approach to vegan cooking, taking it out of the realm of the staid and the boring to create truly original animal-free dishes. Fifteen printings and 125,000 copies later, How It All Vegan! was a BookSense 76 selection in the US and is Arsenal's bestselling title to date.

The Garden of Vegan: How It All Vegan Again! picks up where the first book left off. Tanya and Sarah, vegan chefs extraordinaire, have created truly delectable, truly original new recipes that manage to leave the animal products (including butter, milk, cheese, and honey) where they belong, with their natural owners. Where How It All Vegan! was, in many ways, a bible for the uninitiated vegan, The Garden of Vegan goes one step further, offering recipes for a more sophisticated palate that add funky twists to familiar dishes bursting with colour and flavour. At the same time, they are fun and easy to prepare, even for those of us who find boiling water a challenge.

Whether you're a full-time vegan or just interested in creating fabulous animal-free meals, The Garden of Vegan will lead you into temptation with its inspiring array of vegan goodies. So skip that steak and forget that fish. It's time to discover how it all vegan, again! Two-colour throughout.

Now in its 8th printing!

Product Description

From Amazon

They're back: Sarah Kramer and Tanya Bernard, Victoria's serious but never solemn vegan warriors, have collected another bushel basket of good-for-you-and-tastes-good-too recipes, which you can rustle up without chowing down on an oyster or ostrich, scrambling an egg, depriving a calf of a drop of milk, or robbing a bee of a driblet of its hard-earned honey. As in their first book, How It All Vegan!, they make renunciation look like good, healthy fun, larding (okay, okay! stuffing) the text with retro design and corny jokes. If you want to find out how to cook meat or eggs or dairy products, read another book. But if you have the time and want to feel warm and fuzzy about what goes into you, moosh together all 12 ingredients for "Kurstin's Walnut Burgers"--you'll be surprised how good the patties taste. And health-conscious non-vegetarians will find this book useful because Bernard and Kramer are the best kind of cookbook writers: they love to cook and eat. --Ted Whittaker


Written in the most engaging way, it's full of recipes that are bound to appeal.
-Canadian Living

[So] much more than straight recipes; Garden shows veganism as a fun and exciting way of life-complete with witty, often hilarious recipe intros and heartfelt stories. . .
-Monday Magazine

[Sarah and Tanya] teach the world at least two things: that being a vegan can be loads of fun and that vegan food is to die for.

[The Garden of Vegan] is packed with fun, fresh and animal-free recipes with names that should tempt anyone, whether veggie or not. With recipes like "Nummy Yummy Waffles," to "Linguine with Sun-Dried Tomato Pesto Sauce," to "Dean Dean the Sex Machine's Baked Donuts," the book covers every meal, and even in between.

The Garden of Vegan has got "hit" written all over it. . .
-The Vancouver Sun

. . . this vegan's bible is packed with useful information delivered with the same political edge that made the first a hit.
-Vancouver Courier

Their tatoos, their fashion sense, stolen from grandma's vintage trunk, and their irreverence, say it's not important to be earnest vegans; their recipes have an I-hate-to-cook-but-love-to-eat attitude.
-Vancouver Sun

. . . Barnard and Kramer give a taste of the vegan life, and show how sweet (and savory) it can be.
-Northwest Palate

The authors' lively writing and tips. . . make this more than a cooking resource.
-E Magazine

I am a new vegan and I was having a hard time with the cookbooks that called for all sorts of ingredients I had never heard of with all sorts of difficult recipes. I wasn't good at cooking food before I became vegan, and it seemed like all the vegan cookbooks were for advanced cooks. Not this book. These are all great recipes with easy ingredients and simple directions. I especially love the recipes where they note that they can be frozen and reheated later. I have such a hard time cooking good healthy food while working and going to school, but this book is full of recipes that let you do that especially if you can freeze them and eat them later! Plus, the authors seem to have great laid back personalities. Not too "ooh-la-la" -- very down to earth. These recipes are great for anyone who is looking to eat more healthily. Downside of the book is that there aren't pictures of the food and sometimes I can't quite tell what it is that the recipe is for (like Jessie's Cuban Sensation-- very nice title, but what is it?). This is their second cookbook so I would recommend their first one for more basic stuff and then this one to expand your range of foods to make. They also have great ideas for parties, and a special section for college students trying to be vegan in a dorm.

5.0 out of 5 stars Garden of eating! April 7 2003
By iggy
I pre-ordered this book a while back, and was very happy to finally receive it. In essence, "The Garden of Vegan" picks up where "How it all Vegan" left off. There are lots more fun recipes for appetizers, stir fries, "main entrees" and desserts. Every dish I've tried so far has turned out great; in fact my meat loving husband has enjoyed them all too.
So far I've made:
"Carmelized onion and fennel mashed potatoes" - this was excellent.
"Portobello mushroom bake" - fantastic.
"Coconut spiced vegetables" -a really good stir fry.
"Brownie cookies" - yum.
"Amazing chocolate pudding" - amazing, as the title says.
There's also lots of good tips in the back about how to make different spice combinations, such as Garam Masala, etc. There's also different ideas about how to host fun parties.
All in all, if you enjoy cooking vegan/vegetarian and want recipes that are interesting and not too time consuming, this is a great book.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Wonderful follow up, w/more helpful hints. June 16 2003
By A Customer
Although I am not a vegan, this book is my second savior to cooking for me and my vegan boyfriend. All the recipies look delicious and are not threatening with complicated ingredients. There are no pictures of the recipies (which I usually find a staple to any good cookbook), but I have to say I don't miss them. Designed like a kooky 50's style cookbook, the recipies give me the confidence that I can cook them without the pictures. This book also includes microwave cooking recipies; a nice twist for people with no oven (such as travelers or college students). The authors continue to give helpful hints for a more healthy lifestyle, such as "45 things to do w/baking soda", first aid, and "whoops" cooking tips if something goes crazy in the kitchen. This book also includes fun entertaining ideas for parties and crafts. Congratulations to the authors for a great follow up. I look forward to the third.

5.0 out of 5 stars vegan angels Dec 30 2002
well i bought the first book and shelved all my other cookbooks..every recipe was a success and easy!! .. i have never been able to pick out a recipe before a dinner party without a test run before now.. life couldn't be better
but then came garden of vegan.. so now i have two cook books .. i found that GOV picks up where the HIAV leaves off and also amazingly includes all my wishlist recipes and lots of fun party ideas.. so this weekend i had a cooking frenzy
(and a very full boyfriend).. Death by chocolate pie, Asian noodle salad, spicy maple nuts and raspberry fig bars. yummy!!
these girls really know how to show people that veganisim isn't all about beans + lentils..
this book is a great gift for anyone.. Especially vegetarians (or frustrated parents of vegetarians..*heehee*)
i am a much happier and healthier person that this book exists.

5.0 out of 5 stars My second favorite cookbook. April 30 2003
By A Customer
"How It All Vegan" was my favorite cookbook from when I first became a vegetarian. All the recipes were tasty, easy, healthy, and they ALWAYS worked. So, I ordered "The Garden of Vegan" sight unseen. I was not disappointed. Where the first book consisted of the authors' own tried and true recipes, the second book consists of recipes sent to the authors by their legions of fans. I've fixed these recipes for non-vegetarian friends and relatives who didn't even notice that there was no meat, dairy or eggs in the dishes. They didn't miss a thing because the food was soooo good. The Garden of Vegan even has a section on throwing vegan parties, and the ideas go way beyond food. Both books are highly recommended. These two ladies are a hoot!

There is an index in this book and the first one. I don't know what that reviewer who complains of "no index" is talking about.
