5.0 out of 5 stars A gorgeous Vegan cookbook 12 Feb 2001
By A Customer
Format:Paperback
VEGAN FEASTS is a gorgeous book that will soon convince you that vegans don't just eat brown rice and lentils. The book is full of numerous recipes for soup, dips/dressings, snacks, main meals, desserts, cakes and biscuits. The recipes are easy to follow and the ingredients are relatively easy to find. The only drawback is that there are no photos, but there are so many recipes in this book that it is excellent value for money. This is the ideal book for a new vegan or anyone who has to cook for a vegan. Anyone who has had to cut dairy products out of their diet will also find this book useful as it teaches you about dairy-free alternatives that you can use in your cooking.

5.0 out of 5 stars absolutely essential vegan cook book 31 July 2003
By JanieH
Format:Paperback
this book is essential to all vegans, and anyone who might ever want to cook vegan food. all the recipes are simple, ingredients can be found in any supermarket, and they're foolproof! lots of old veggie faves such as lasagne, hummus and various salad. also many more interesting recipes. also has some great recipes for vegan cakes that don't taste as if they're vegan!

This area is outside my remit, so I drafted in a Vegan friend for her comments on this book.
She described it as the equivalent of 'Nigella Express', i.e. fullest flavour without the effort!

Possibly not the best title for this book, as in the use of the word 'Feasts', and it is true to say that the recipes do use 'Vegan' variations of ingredients, e.g.:
Vegan mayo/cheese slices/margarine, chocolate or soya milk/cream and some do advise checking the ingredients list of each product, e.g. gravy powder to check that it is meat-free.

So, perhaps, a bit of work to be done on the shopping side before commencing cooking, but worth it in the long run!

She felt that it is a good mix of recipes both for one starting out on this road, i.e. a book that includes basics to show the would-be Vegan that their diet need not consist solely of 'nut cutlets' and 'lentils' and more ambitious dishes aimed at those who are well experienced and looking for a few new ideas.

Some ingredient lists are indeed `long-ish' but simply add to the overall flavour.

176 matt pages, split over chapters:

* Soups
* Dips
* Sandwiches and Bread-based Snacks
* Salads, Dressings and Appetizers
* Sauces
* Pastry Dishes
* Pasta Dishes
* Legume Dishes
* Grain and Nut Dishes
* Potato Dishes
* Desserts
* Scones, Cakes and Cookies

with an introduction, a section on 'eating healthily and well', which includes notes on how to meet the daily nutritional requirements of a Vegan diet and an index.

Each chapter opens with relevant text.
Each recipe is well laid out with an opening note, the title, number of servings, list of ingredients and the method.

Most of the recipes in this book are simple and straightforward with a few more elaborate creations for special occasions. My sense in reading the book is that it might be best suited to new vegans or non-vegans cooking for vegans.

It does not make great use of the range of ingredients and techniques one finds in many cookbooks by vegans and for this reason I find it rather limited. It would not be my top recommendation for a new vegan for this reason but I might recommend it to somebody who needed to cater for a vegan on a temporary basis as it does use fairly easy-to-find ingredients familiar to most cooks and would not require somebody to learn to search out and prepare unknown foods or master new techniques.

For example, many of the recipes use soya cream as a replacement for cream. This is especially noticeable in the chapters on pasta and desserts. While this is surely acceptable now and then, the product is relatively expensive and not terribly healthy. There are better ways to produce creamy vegan sauces and desserts and I'd encourage vegans (new or not) to explore those options rather than relying too heavily on soya cream. (I've personally never used soya cream in main courses or even ice-creams, for example, but only as a topping for desserts when I didn't wish to bother making an alternative from scratch.)

Although the book is clearly designed to cross the Atlantic, US readers should be aware that some of the recipes may be more difficult for them. I never saw soya cream when I lived in the US, for example, so a good number of the pastas and desserts may be ruled out. I'm also not convinced that light corn syrup will work well as a substitute for golden syrup in the steamed pudding but never tried the substitution so could be wrong about this.

AS WITH ALL OF ROSE ELLIOTTS BOOKS,SHE APPROACHES HER SUBJECT WITHOUT PREJUDICE AND FOR A PROFESSIONAL COOK LOOKING TO INCLUDE A VEGAN RANGE WITHOUT RELYING ON PULSES AND TOFU IT WAS REFRESHING TO FIND OUT HOW TO MAKE MAINSTREAM GOODIES USING ONLY VEGAN INGREDIENTS.SURELY THIS IS WHAT IT IS ALL ABOUT , ENCOURAGING AND INFORMING PEOPLE THAT TO ADOPT A VEGAN DIET IS NOT TO NECESSARILY GIVE UP THE TREATS THAT ARE OFTEN ONLY AVAILABLE USING FORBIDDEN FRUITS AS IT WERE .UNLIKE MANY VEGAN BOOKS SHE DOES NOTY PREACH AND I WOULD SUGGEST THAT SHE IS MORE LIKELY TO CONVERT WAIVERERS THAN MANY OF HER CONTEMPORARIES WHO CHOOSE TO ADOPT A MORE MORALISTIC TONE.I WOULD RECOMMEND THIS BOOK TO EVERYONE,EVEN CARNIVORES!!!!!
