Vegan Cupcakes Take Over the World
meets The Boozy Baker
meets Vegan Comfort Food
in this full-color, hip cookbook. Award-winning author John Schlimm brings together everyones two favorite hangouts: the kitchen and the bar. A member of one of the oldest brewing families in the United States and author of the largest beer cookbook ever published, Schlimm knows a thing or two about boozing up his food.
The Tipsy Vegan showcases plant-based recipes using favorites from the bar circuit—wine, beer, vodka—as key ingredients. From spiked appetizers, soups, and salads to blitzed main dishes, desserts, and, of course, cocktails, these buzz-worthy recipes make sure you have a blast, whether youre preparing for a houseful of guests or a party for one.
Recipes include: Carousing Cucumber Rounds with Rummy Hummus, Plastered Portobello Mushroom Satay, Wild Rice Under the Influence, The Hotta Frittata with Chopped Jalapeño Pepper, Slur-Baaaaked Peaches with Cointreau, Bottoms Up VegeBean Stew, Bad-Ass Beer Cake with Bourbon Raisins and Amaretto Frosting, and more.
"Schlimm (The Ultimate Beer Lovers Cookbook) puts his boozy cooking experience to work in this collection of vegan recipes that incorporate alcohol for added depth. Yes, there are Jell-O shots (made here with a vegan-friendly gelatin substitute), salads, and hummus, but there are also a handful of soups (Roasted Yellow Pepper with cognac), six sorbets, and flavor-packed roasted potatoes with rosemary, horseradish, Dijon mustard, and cayenne tossed with vodka and vermouth to keep them crispy. Though recipe titles are often cringe-worthy ('Hey, Baby! Artichokes,' anyone?), his recipes are often spot-on and don't require too many arcane or hard-to-source ingredients. Moreover, the addition of alcohol to his dishes Bottom's Up VegeBean Stew employs a dark beer for added oomph, Triple Sec is added to a blueberry pie as well as homemade granola truly serves a purpose other than novelty. Though the book feels padded in terms of page count (there are many gorgeous full-page images), Schlimm's efforts will pay off for vegans, as well as their omnivorous guests. (Nov.)"
