Entertaining for a Veggie Planet: 250 Down-to-Earth Recipes

Entertaining for a Veggie Planet: 250 Down-to-Earth Recipes Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The queen of vegetarian hip is back! Convinced that entertaining doesn?t have to be high-stress or high-maintenance, Didi Emmons presents an alternative view: the best parties aren?t meticulously planned. Crammed with innovative ideas for delightfully informal gatherings and hundreds of globally inspired, big-flavored vegetarian recipes, Entertaining for a Veggie Planet proves that having friends over ? whether for the season finale of a favorite TV show or for a book group discussion ? is not only easy, it?s fun. From dips and cold bites (Malaysian Spring Rolls) to main dishes (Shiitake Mac ?n? Cheese), from brunch (Cardamon Blueberry Cake) to ?sweet eats? (Oreo Key Lime Pie), Emmons?s dishes offer endless possibilities for vegetarians, vegans, and anyone else in search of a satisfying meal. Her creative menus (?Vegetarian Solutions to Turkey Day?) and her spirit of fun (?if you?re serving only one food, make it homemade ice cream?) will put all cooks in the mood to share.

Review:

Review:

"...ways to make entertaining easy and fun are offered throughout. For most collections." Library Journal

Review:
