Grilling Vegan Style brings you the best of all possible worldsdelicious, fun foods prepared in the most healthful way. For everyone who loves grilling, this is the way to do it right.”
Biz Stone, Co-Founder of Twitter and Obvious
When I was a kid, the best thing in the world was grilling time. Grilling Vegan Style brings the nostalgia back and highlights that for me as a new dad, there is a way to share the ritual of food and fire’ with my son.”
Inder Bedi, Founder and Creative Director of MATT & NAT
We often cite several inspirations for what we do at MATT & NAT, however few of them get us salivating as does great vegan food! John’s pioneering take on the traditional BBQ in Grilling Vegan Style (including desserts!) has gotten us VERY excited. Another cultural phenomenon has been brought into the 21st century, thank you John for providing vegans a path to partake in a favorite summertime tradition!”
Chef Paul Kirk, CWC, Ph.B., B.S.A.S., Kansas City Baron of BBQ, and Author of Championship Barbecue and America’s Best BBQ
With Grilling Vegan Style, John has shown you ways to bring out flavors and taste you never thought possible. John’s recipe for Party on South Peach Salsa especially is to die for and will go with almost anything.”
Ray Lampe AKA Dr. BBQ, Author of Ribs, Chops, Steaks, and Wings and Dr. BBQ’s Big-Time Barbecue Cookbook
I have to admit that I was a little skeptical about a Vegan Grilling book. After all in my world it’s all about the meat. I might even be considered a Non-Vegan! But John’s book has opened my eyes to the concept and his recipes are outstanding. The Slip-N-Sliders is a great recipe for everyone and I guarantee I’m going to try the Strawberry Skewers with Vanilla, I Scream! real soon!”
Terry Hope Romero, Author of Viva Vegan! and Co-Author of Veganomicon
"Veggie backyard BBQ warriors and grill pan guerillas; John Schlimm, your knight in tofu armor has arrived, also bearing Spiked Ruby Daiquiris and other sipping delights."
Marisa Miller Wolfson, Writer & Director of Vegucated
"I dare you to flip through this book and not already start to daydream about which mouth-watering recipe you’d use to wow your friends at the next backyard BBQ. I can’t decide who would be more fun to grill for: hipster gourmands on a rooftop in Brooklyn or my veganophobic friends in my dad’s backyard in Indiana. The recipes in this book are equal opportunity wowers!"
Burgers, sauces, and sides that will rock the socks off omni and vegan guests.”
Our love for John Schlimm knows no bounds. A relative newcomer to the vegan cookbook-writing scene, he had us at hello with 2011’s The Tipsy Vegan. Schlimm’s signature style is just that: stylish The man knows his way around a theme, not to mention a barbecue. Just as he did with booze, Schlimm takes a single-subject book and broadens its scope beyond what was previously thought possible But it isn’t just the breadth and depth of his smokin’ hot repertoire, it’s the thoughtfulness, playfulness, and downright fun that Schlimm brings to his work Schlimm is an author we’d love to stand around the grill withgabbing, drinking, and saving the world all at once.”
Library Journal, 5/11/12

If there’s one cookbook to prove that vegan fare doesn’t have to be flavorless or boring, this just might be it Whether you are a strict vegan or simply trying to incorporate more vegetables into your diet, Grilling Vegan Style overflows with great ideas.
