We can only imagine how difficult it must be to improve upon such cookbooks as Veganomicon and Vegan Pie in the Sky. However, we think the co-author of the aforementioned books, one Terry Hope Romero, could do it with Vegan Eats World.”

As expected from Terry Hope Romero after the excellent Viva Vegan, the recipes are very well thought through and the directions are always very clear. She's done her homework to find unusual, yet traditional recipes from around the world and did an amazing job at veganizing them. Also, as usual, the author offers a lengthy introduction with a lot of comprehensive information on ingredients, cooking techniques, etc. Very useful and very fun to read, as Terry writes with a pretty good sense of humor.
The true pleasure of the book is to discover new flavors and to seek out those unique ingredients that make or break a meal. And there is A LOT of unique items to shop. Brace yourself, it will get time consuming but well worth the effort. Although, she does offer numerous substitution ideas for those who cannot or would not find the ingredients. But again, make yourself a favor and shop around if you can.
As mentioned previously, the directions are very clear but beware, most recipes I've tried were pretty elaborate and I would not suggest the book to someone without a minimum of kitchen experience. This is more of a "treat yourself to a great meal" type of book. You will spend a lot of time prepping and cooking but the reward will be that much greater.
I honestly loved most recipes I've tested but to me, the best section was definitely chapter 6: Curries, Hearty Stews and Beans. Coconut curries are all killer (check out the whole cashew curry!) as is the Jungle curry, the Posole and the Shakshuka. Unlike many cookbook, she keeps a good balance between tofu, seitan and beans.
Other highlights, in no particular order are: Momo dumplings, Steamed BBQ seitan buns, Socca crepes, Shredded Cabbage with toasted mustard seeds, White bean and celery root puree, Pad Kee Mao, Pad See Ew, Takeout stir-fry noodles, Pad thai, green papaya (or mango) salad, roasted beet-apple-dill salad, Andean aji bean stew, Chocolate Flourless Torte. I could go on and on.
Oh, and by the way, the book looks very nice too. Lots of pictures and colors and a nice hard cover. I'd buy it anytime.
Only thing taking a star off this review is the bad index. it could be alot better with specific ingredients. For example : there is a daikon edamame lettuce wrap recipe; if you look in the index for edamame, there is nothing there. it's pretty stupid and there is quite a few ingredients like that.
