"Makini Howell’s food defies convention. Yes, it’s vegan, but many dishes are so rich and succulent, guests at her table sometimes wonder if she slipped up and mixed in a drop of cream or a dollop of butter....Reflecting the matter-of-fact, easy generosity of Makini herself, this book is chock-full of recipes that make creating a vegan table a piece of (egg-free) cake." Rachel Lincoln Sarnoff, former Executive Director/CEO at Healthy Child Healthy World
