Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

For full-time vegans as well as those who just love healthful foods that taste fabulous, this book, created by gourmet chef Brian McCarthy, contains over 400 dairy-free and egg-free vegetarian recipes--including traditional family favorites such as birthday cakes and "turkey" dinners with pumpkin pie.

Review:

"Serious in intent and plain in presentation, this is a subdued cookbook for vegans (no meat, fish or dairy) who cook three meals a day and need a reliable cache of ideas. Oregon professional chef McCarthy spent 10 years amassing these recipes to sate his own family's desire for 'real food' as they were settling into the vegan way of life. The result is this comprehensive selection that spans all parts of the meal. There are vegan versions of familiar family dishes, such as macaroni and cheese, vegetable quiche pie, lasagna florentine and French toast, which feature such traditional substitutes as egg replacer powder, varieties of tofu and vegan cheese. Some recipes flash with originality (e.g., Moroccan Red Lentil Soup), but others (e.g., Acorn Squash with Molasses) are reliable standbys with no vegan-offending ingredients in their original incarnation. A glossary and list of items in 'A Well-Stocked Vegan Pantry' are serviceable, but lack the explanations and idiosyncrasies that make cookbooks and their writers memorable. By emphasizing the everyday aspect of preparing food, McCarthy concentrates on large-scale coverage rather than culinary openness and creates a book that speaks to the converted or nearly converted vegan."

veganwrench, November 16, 2006 (view all comments by veganwrench)
This is the best vegan cookbook I have found yet. The recipes are straightforward, easy, and delicious. It was created by a chef at Intel, who has been vegan for years and wanted to re-create family favorites in animal-free form. My kid also loves the recipes, as have relatives that didn't realize vegan food could be so good. Favorite recipes that get used over and over from this cookbook in our house include sun-dried tomato hummus, drop biscuits, cake & cookie recipes, zucchini bread, and stir-fry, to name just a few. I haven't found a recipe that did not work out yet!
