Product Description

Review

There is no doubting the creativity of Merida Anderson, author, and host of Vegan Secret Suppers all over the continent - she puts flavours together in a way that makes me a little jealous that I didn't think of first (and I'm pretty creative with combinations!).
Year of the Vegan (Year of the Vegan 2013-05-01)

Merida Anderson's recipes, and the photos that illustrate them, are elegant and innovative ... This is a cookbook made for weekend dinner parties where you want to show off ("AND it's vegan!" you'll boast). Who wouldn't be impressed by Fennel Portobello Soup with Smoke-Infused Olive Oil or Sherry-Roasted Root Vegetables on Brown Rice Kale Pilaf?
Well+Good NYC (Well+Good NYC 2013-05-13)

An incredibly helpful book for someone who likes to host dinner parties where every single guest feels honored.
Austin Chronicle (Austin Chronicle 2013-05-22)

A lovely new book by Mérida Anderson, a young self-trained vegan chef who cooks the most inventive, intricate and delicately flavoured dishes.
Montreal Gazette (Montreal Gazette 2013-06-04)

This cookbook includes 150 creative recipes with suggestions on how to plate dishes.

Format: Paperback
While you can find many 'cashew cheese recipes' online, Merida's version is exalted. This is next level cooking. Not a 'beginner' cookbook, some of the recipes are easier than others, but if you want a vegan cookbook that takes you to restaurant quality - truly inspired food, this is it. Some recipes call for specific, unusual ingredients that I have to decide if I'm motivated enough by the recipe to buy - but I either avoid those recipes or I can skip it or I have managed to sub in something else. She clearly takes her food very seriously and I've tried a few recipes, all of which have worked out well.
pear walnut butter
split pea bisque (she suggested serving with cumin croutons, but I skipped this and she serves with minted coconut cream - but I didn't have coconut cream so I improvised with a cashew cream and mint)
orange vinaigrette
cilantro pesto
crispy flatbread crackers - two versions: balsamic lavender and sweet mustard - but she has 2 other variations to chose from
there are 9 verisions of ice cream - I tried the balsamic marbled coconut ice cream. She says you can do it in a ice cream maker, but there is not a lot of 'batter' for my ice cream maker - too much stuck to the sides. I think a simpler method is the one she describes in the book - I would do that next time

Next up: I want to try the butternut squash & almond gnocchi with sage garlic butter

I own about a dozen vegan cookbooks but this one is unique.

This cookbook is as much a work of art as it is a how-to book of vegan cooking. Though many of the recipes are labour intensive, all exude the author's passion for vegan food that is as bold, breathtaking and delicious as any meal you might find in a gourmet restaurant. I'd highly recommend it to vegans, vegetarians and meat eaters who love and appreciate good food.

I don't even know where to start on how much I love this book. Chef Merida has created some of the best meals I've ever eaten--and not just since going vegan. I own a number of cookbooks, but this is the one I reach for when I want to really impress a date with a romantic 3-course meal, or make an incredible holiday spread. Merida will have you making gourmet high-end restaurant-quality meals, and even teaches you how to plate them.

Many (but not all) of the recipes take time to prepare, as just about everything is made from scratch, from pie crusts to cheeses to chutneys. As such, it's not a book that I cook from every day, nor that I would recommend for people brand new to cooking. Yet if you are comfortable in the kitchen; want original, authentic, delicious recipes; or want to impress someone (regardless of their dietary choices) with over-the-top delectable food, this cookbook is absolutely worth it.

Oh, AND it's full of beautiful colour photography. It would make a great gift for the gourmet foodies in your life, vegan and not. Some of my favourite recipes:
- Lentil walnut tourtiere
- Baked eggplant samosas
- Carrot tamarind chutney
- Sweet potato lime creme brulee

This is an amazing cookbook, written by a master. As a culinary student (recently graduated) I am looking for interesting recipes that don't have to be ridiculously simple. I have lots cookbooks out there, some from a bunch of formally trained chefs working at vegan restaurants putting their heads together, and none compare to this. Merida is an extremely skilled chef and has put together a truly amazing and but-above book. One of my favourites. Merida, Wow! Thank you!
