5.0 out of 5 stars Superb! 14 Aug 2009
Format:Paperback
This is of the only cookbooks I've ever been inspired to cook recipes from. I've already tried five of the dishes, and each one has been delicious - they even received glowing reviews from my omnivorous friends! Colleen thoughtfully punctuates each section with interesting notes on entertaining, survival tips for friends and family of vegans and fascinating facts about the ingredients used. For a beginner like myself, I found everything very easy to follow, and being English appreciated the use of both 'cup' and weight measurements. I can't recommend this book highly enough - for both vegans and omnivores.

Format:Paperback
This is a wonderful book and unlike a lot of veggie/vegan cookery books it has some really different recipes, not just the same old nut loaf/lentil stew I've come to expect. The recipes are elegant,healthy, very tasty indeed and have introduced me to some new ingredients. It is an American book so I have used less of the sweet ingredients and appreciate the measurements being in grammes not just American 'cups'. I have got lots of veggie cookery books and have been cooking veggie/vegan kit for decades now and I think the is by far the nicest book I have come across and I'm sure my other half would agree!

5.0 out of 5 stars AMAZING! 21 April 2010
Format:Paperback
WOW!!! This book is amazing!! I am not a complete Vegan, but this is still my favourite cookbook. I love the variety of the recipes; there are easy and fast recipes, and more complicated.. You can even make a lot of these meals for the rest of the family and they wont notice they aren't eating animal products!
Very easy to follow the instructions, and very estetically pleasing to leaf through as there are a lot of delicious looking pictures.

LOVE this book!

This cookbook is really easy to follow and has a huge amount of brilliant recipes and ideas (some you would never have thought of). There are recipes for everything from cookies to curries. This is helpful if you are just starting with veganism or are looking for new ideas. The book is bright and colourful and makes you want to cook!

5.0 out of 5 stars A great book on many levels 27 April 2012
By KCW
Format:Paperback
This book should be a part of any vegan's collection for a multitude of reasons. Firstly, the recipes are varied and delicious. The recipes in this book are not just for entertaining. There is a mix of simple, basic recipes that make good weeknight meals, and more elaborate recipes for special occassions. The majority of the ingredients are things that the average person, vegan or not, will know, and any unfamiliar ingredients are thoroughly explained. Most importantly, the majority of the dishes I have tried have been delicious, and my meat-eating boyfriend likes them too. My favourites have been:

Sweet and Spicy Pumpkin Soup
Carrot Ginger Soup with Cashew Cream
Herbed Scalloped Potatoes
Pan-Grilled Portobello Mushrooms with Herb-Infused Marinade
African Sweet Potato and Peanut Stew
No-Queso Quesadllas
Carmelized Tempeh Shawarmas
Tuscan White Beans with Sun-dried Tomatoes
Decadent Chocolate Truffles

I like a really readable cookbook, and you can definitely curl up with this one. It's full of little bits of information about food and living as a vegan and her party ideas and suggestions are really cute and inspiring.

A couple of people have complained about the format, but I think the format is fun, and I don't really see the problem. The index is comprehensive and each section has a table of contents, so it's not like it's hard to find recipes, or recipes containing certain ingredients.

As other reviewers have noted, the photographs and layout are also very pretty.
