Book Description

April 24 2012
Ellen DeGeneres' personal chef, Roberto Martin, shares over 125 delicious vegan recipes he's created for Ellen DeGeneres and Portia de Rossi that he hopes will make healthy vegan cooking accessible and easy for everyone. Portia de Rossi explains in her foreword, "Roberto taught me that the key to making good food vegan is substitution...you can enjoy all your favorite foods and never feel deprived."

Some of the standouts Martin, a Culinary Institute of America-trained chef, has developed for Ellen and Portia include: Banana and Oatmeal Pancakes, Avocado Reuben, Red Beans and Rice, "Chick'n" Pot Pie, and Chocolate Cheesecake. Featuring mouthwatering photographs by award-winning food photographer, Quentin Bacon, this cookbook will appeal to die-hard carnivores and vegetarians alike.

1.0 out of 5 stars More Product Placement than Cooking July 3 2012
I have been a cook and food enthusiast for most of my life. And although I am not a vegetarian or vegan, have come to realize the importance of a largely vegetable based diet, mainly for the health and environment benefits and have been fascinated by how easily I can make tasty meals meat-free. I was looking forward to picking this book up as it is suppose to convince carnivores to try vegan. But what I found was primarily recipes with root flavours derived from pre-existing products. Field Roast Italian Sausage, Gardein Chick'n Scallopini. And Better than Bouillon Fuax meat stock in almost everything. How about a decent stock, faux meat or vegan mayo recipe? If I care enough about my health to give up meat and try to make my own food, why would I trust someone else to make my main source of flavour. And besides that, some people who may be interested in this book don't live in California, so some of these products may be harder to come by. All this aside, I'm sure Chef Martin makes lovely dishes for Portia and Ellen, as I'm sure they are largely responsible for getting this book made. But if you want real animal-free recipes that YOU can make from ingredients at your local supermarket. Look elsewhere. I'd make some suggestions, but then I'd be guilty of product placement as well.

5.0 out of 5 stars Carnivore delight May 3 2012
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
Coming from the land of Alberta beef, I can honestly say after sampling these reciepes I did NOT miss the meat. Looking forward to serving a main vegan dish to my vegetarian friends instead of them just eating the side dish.

This book would be excellent for anyone transitioning to a vegetarian or vegan diet, or for carnivores wishing for meatless recipes that replicate the hearty food they are used to, so it certainly lives up to its title. I appreciate all the colour photographs, and the recipes are not complicated with obscure ingredients -- it's food for everyone. There is a good mix of healthy dishes and decadent indulgences.

3.0 out of 5 stars Lots of fake meat May 12 2012
I have not eaten meat for 21 years - but I am not vegan. I have also tried to cut out animal products but again not vegan, I still eat regular sugar, I dont ask if the lactic acid in my can of black olives is derived from whey etc. This book really does seem to be for folks who avoid meat and animal products because they feel for the animals. There was a lot of use of 'fake meat' to replace real meat, which is fine but I had been hoping for some other options. I think many of my carnivore friends and family dont like vegetarian fare because of fake meat (which apparently tastes nothing like real meat - it has been 21 years, I cant remember). I would have preferred to see more recipies without trying to replace meat.
However - some great ideas in here, I have tried a few and will try more for sure.

2.0 out of 5 stars Not worth it March 2 2014
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
If you are Canadian, a lot of products the recipes call for aren't available widely here. I made two recipes with substitute ingredients and they turned out nasty
