From the laminated cover (to protect from spills by clumsy cooks like myself), to the hand-drawn illustrations, via the hand-written, delicious receipts, the comprehensive nutritional information and even an "All you need" shopping list, this book is both practical and beautifully presented.
Normally only drawn by recipe books full of enticing colour photographs, this book caught my attention via the laminated nutrient wallchart (also available from Amazon). The chart belongs on the kitchen wall and the book should be well-thumbed.
There are breakfast suggestions, wholesome and satisfying soups, quick and easy main meals (from lentil roast to barbecue beans), salad and vegetable suggestions, tea-time quick snacks and irresistible cakes and puddings (from mango hedgehog to vegan chocolate cake). Just flicking through the book makes my mouth water!
This book will appeal to those who love and use "The Moosewood Cookbook" and "The Enchanted Broccoli Forest" by Mollie Katzen. If you haven't seen these books but are looking for delicious, mostly healthy recipes, look them up immediately!
This book will join them as a must have for vegans, vegetarians and omnivores alike. Billed as "A practical guide to healthy animal-free nutrition & easy family meals" on the cover, "So, What Do You Eat?" provides all this and more.
