I like the fact that you don't have to constraint yourself to the ingredients listed in the recipe. The book packs some much information that you can make your own choices about how you would like your recipe to look and taste like. I recommend that you read the entire recipe, as well as the notes on the top and bottom before you start cooking.The book itself is very easy to read, it has clear instructions and doesn't call for too many ingredients like other books do. The ingredients are easy to find if they aren't in your pantry already. There isn't a picture for every single recipe, but the pictures in the book are really beautiful. They make you want to cook.
If you are new to veganism, this is a good way to start cooking new food. After testing some of this recipes, you will realize that vegan food is not "rabbit food" or bland food. Rather, it is healthful and delicious.Last night I made a pie, a dessert and a vegan cheese. Everything was yummy!
I usually modify a recipe to my taste even the first time I make it but after reading some of the less positive reviews that said these recipes were bland I thought I should see if that were true. It is not true in my opinion. I was surprised, even the recipes that sounded bland came out so great that even my boyfriend raved. He has the palate of a six year old, very hard to please.
We both love super flavorful foods like Indian and Greek so it's not as though we like it bland. I love the food lore notes and the tips throughout.
My only complaints are based on my personality not really the book itself. I'd like more pictures of the dishes, I'm a visual person and seeing the final dish as it's supposed to look helps. I've only seen one editing error. The Hot Tamale Pie recipe calls for Lemon juice but it never tells you when/where to add it. I guessed and it still came out great.
If you want to eat a more balanced whole foods diet and you want to get healthy but are deterred by the word "vegan" don't be scared, Colleen does include the ethical stuff but she doesn't punch you in the face with it.
There are no wierd ingredients other than a few tempeh recipes and tempeh is much easier to come by now, anyhow, just substitute tofu or even a meaty portobello mushroom...
An excellent buy, I highly reccomend it to new vegans, ancient vegans, omnis and everyone who wants more interesting veggies on their plates.
