Publisher Comments:

Pure Vegan proves that embracing a vegan lifestyle can be stylish and beautiful via 70 recipes that are both plant-based and indulgent. The only vegan cookbook that celebrates eating and enjoyment rather than emphasizing the politics of a vegan lifestyle, this beautiful compilation features novel, vivacious recipes. Yes, they're non-meat-egg-dairy, and they're fabulous! Pure ingredients and unique combinations appeal to meat lovers and committed vegans alike. Breakfast, lunch, dinner, and snacks are represented, and a special chapter is dedicated to late-night indulgences such as chocolate truffles and herbal cocktails. Seventy-five gorgeous pictures round out this fetching package.

Review:

"A vegan lifestyle evokes images of sticks and twigs, buying in bulk, or political treatises advocating a diet devoid of animal products, but in L.A.-based cook and designer Shuldiner's first cookbook, culinary delights abound throughout the day in the life of a vegan. Pleasure-filled and fashionable upscale recipes are vegan dishes in designer clothing; however, this cookbook is more than a fashion statement. Recipes are unadulterated and uncomplicated in execution, uncluttered in expression, yet complex in flavor. On a vegan culinary tour from morning to night, savory breakfast tarts are hearty with leeks, nuts, and mushrooms. French toast is topped with cardamom-perfumed pear compote. A rich chowder combines celery root and fennel. Three chapters inspire noshing into wee hours when passionate vegans indulge in caramel-sauced pears poached in tea, dates dipped in coffee crema, and chocolate tart that ends with a flourish of Maldon sea salt crystals from the British Isles, delicate as fallen 'snowflakes.' Basic vegan pantry items and utensils are outlined; anecdotal recipe headers encourage variation and reflect on the aesthetics of each dish. With a sophisticated design of mocha and avocado — colored pages that highlight stunning photography, this volume delivers on chic vegan eats. (June)" Publishers Weekly Copyright PWxyz, LLC.

Holly Scudero, August 9, 2012 (view all comments by Holly Scudero)
Who says that all vegan food is for health nuts? Certainly not Joseph Shuldiner, a graphic designer with a love of delicious plant-based foods and author of a new cookbook, "Pure Vegan." As the inside cover declares, “this is vegan like you've never seen it before.” There are no politics to be found here, no ethics; this cookbook doesn't even follow the standard layout of recipes organized by category. Instead of entrees or desserts, recipes are sorted by time of day, and even that is not hard and fast. Shuldiner includes all kinds of cookery here, from main courses to salads to snacks to drinks; who wouldn't love a vegan cocktail? Morning dishes include French Toast with Cardamom Pear Compote and Savory Breakfast Tarts. In the afternoon, you might feast on Roasted Pepper Involtini or Pistachio Olive Oil Cake. Evening fare might be Celery Root and Fennel Chowder or Poblano Chiles Rellenos. If it's late at night, or very late at night, you might indulge in Chocolate-Tahinki Timbales with a Lavender-Tangerine Martini, or a Charoset Tart with a Shiso Leaf Martini. These recipes are not for the faint of heart, and they're certainly not for the home cook on a budget. But with such delicious sounding recipes and enticingly beautiful photos, there's surely something in "Pure Vegan" to tempt everyone!
