I recently bought this book along with two other cookbooks, however I haven't made a single recipe out of the others yet because this one has too many great looking recipes I want to try! So far everything I've made from this book has been delicious and extremely simple. Highlights so far include the chocolate mint truffle pie (ridiculously easy and tastes amazing), pineapple coconut cream pie and the chicken-style seitan loaf.
-Delicious food, generally quick and easy to prepare
-A beautiful book, especially compared with many vegan cookbooks, with plenty of pictures
-Perfect for when you fancy something slightly less healthy!
-I want to try almost every recipe in this book, a first for me
-The chocolate mint truffle pie (so good, no one has guessed it's vegan yet)
-It's a little too reliant on items such as silken tofu, nutritional yeast and vital wheat gluten that can be hard to find in the UK. However, the dishes that I've made using these ingredients have been worth the effort.
-It's not the healthiest of books, especially when you want seconds or thirds of everything (but it is meant to be comfort/diner style food, not health food, something it definitely succeeds at)
-There isn't as much variation in recipes as some people might like, eg there are six different seitan recipes which could be off putting if you don't like seitan.
-Some recipes are so simple they seem almost like space fillers, however they are usually good ideas
-Because of some of the ingredients needed the recipes aren't the cheapest (although not hugely expensive either)
Overall, if you want tasty, easy vegan comfort food, this is a great book to get. If you're one of those people who thinks that vegan always equals healthy, it's not the book for you!
