Anyone who says haute cuisine, big flavor, and vegan cooking can't go together hasn't been to San Francisco's famed Millennium Restaurant Since 1994, Millennium has created a sumptuous vegan experience, which was first made available to home cooks in the revolutionary Millenium Cookbook.

Now, Chef Eric Tucker brings us another collection of his mindblowing vegan fare in The Artful Vegan. Bringing the farmers market to fine dining, these 140 new recipes are fresh, impassioned vegan interpretations of traditional and contemporary global cuisine— and they're nutritious, meat- and dairy-free and all organic to boot. Spanning influences from the Pacific Rim to the Deep South. The Artful Vegan showcases an expanded repertoire of flavors, methods, and ingredients that are on the cutting edge of healthful taste and nutrition.

Here?s a taste:

  • Lemon?Pine Nut Ravioli over Baby Artichoke?Golden Tomato Ragoût
  • Oyster Mushroom Calamari
  • Stuffed Poblano Chiles over Forbidden Black Rice Risotto
  • Strawberry, Rose, and Rhubarb Soup
  • German Chocolate Cake

All the recipes are cholesterol free, and many are low in fat or can be made with little or no oil. Whether you?re a strict herbivore or simply interested in exploring a dynamic new cuisine, the food of Millennium will open your mind— and palate— to a world of enticing vegan flavors.

About the Author

Eric Tucker has been executive chef at Millennium since it opened in 1994, and was coauthor of the revolutionary Millennium Cookbook. He is a graduate of the Natural Gourmet Institute of Food in New York. In 1990, he took a position at Milly?s Restaurant in San Rafael, California. When the owners of Milly?s opened Millennium in San Francisco, he came along as executive chef, bringing to the restaurant his varied culinary passions, including mycology and exotic cuisines. He has been the primary creative force behind the restaurant?s success ever since.

Bruce Enloe was born into a family of food lovers and restaurateurs in Bryan, Texas. He has spent more than fifteen years in various kitchens, with a focus on Italian, Texan, Southern, and Southwestern cooking. He joined Millennium in 1997 and became sous-chef in 1998. As assistant wine steward, he helped build the widely recognized organic wine list. Millennium introduced Bruce to his wife and best friend, former assistant general manager Nicole LeBlanc. They left the Bay Area in 2003 to travel, with plans to open an organic foods restaurant in Ontario, Canada.

Amy Pearce was born and raised in Mobile, Alabama. For as long as she can remember, she has loved to bake. When she became a vegetarian at the age of 12, she was forced to learn to cook for herself. In 1995, Amy graduated from the Natural Gourmet Cookery School in New York. She worked numerous jobs as a vegan baker and private chef before joining the Millennium team in 1999. She soon became the restaurant?s pastry chef.

McAuliflower, November 12, 2006 (view all comments by McAuliflower)
The Artful Vegan is a refreshing take on the realm of vegan cooking. Full of beautiful pictures; gourmet techniques and artful presentation are stressed throughout its pages. Each recipe even contains an additional section with plating instructions to help bring a restaurant like feel to your creation.

While inspiring, these recipes aren't for a casual bite at home. These meals often contain more than 5 separate components to assemble the dish. As such, these recipes are perfect for wow factor consumption.

Without being a vegan, I found the recipes especially innovative. This cookbook inspired me to cook with cocoa butter, hemp seeds, and agave nectar for the first time. I even made seitan from scratch! The multi-layered plating instructions have also introduced me to flavor combinations that I now can't live without (oyster mushrooms, carrots and sesame)!

Recommended for gourmands seeking inspiration beyond the basics of vegan cooking.
