5.0 out of 5 stars This book has opened up a whole new way of eating for me!
Having bought this book in an attempt to find some interesting recipes to cook up for my vegan friends I am seriously considering the idea of changing my eating habits aswell.

2.0 out of 5 stars Interesting recipe ideas but very US centric
This is a smallish glossy book that contains some interesting and straightforward recipe ideas. There aren't that many photos and the style and art work are not very good - different font styles clash and the pages are riven by large vertical bands of colour, why? Brits be warned that there are many references to things that are specifically American, like the usual...

This review is from: The New Vegan Cookbook: Celebrating the Bounty of Cholesterol-free Fare (Paperback)
Having bought this book in an attempt to find some interesting recipes to cook up for my vegan friends I am seriously considering the idea of changing my eating habits aswell. Not only does the book explain, in a clear and simple manner, the health benefits of such a regime, it also demonstrates, in the form of tempting recipes accompanied by equally mouthwatering photos that being vegan does not necessarily mean boring. I was under the impression that veganism meant abstention from all the flavours and textures that make eating a pleasure - tofu, tofu and more tofu... but this book has definitely proved my misconceptions to be so wrong. I have already tried four of the recipes and not only did they work first time but they were heartily received by my (non vegan) friends and family too. I didn't even mention that they were in fact 'healthy vegan meals.'
This book is one of the most refreshing and modern cookery books that I have seen recently.

This is a smallish glossy book that contains some interesting and straightforward recipe ideas. There aren't that many photos and the style and art work are not very good - different font styles clash and the pages are riven by large vertical bands of colour, why? Brits be warned that there are many references to things that are specifically American, like the usual cilantro and eggplant but also escarole; what is that??? Various products are also mentioned that are US market specific, so if you live in America that's fine, if not it's a problem.
