This does exactly what it says on the tin - and then some! I've bought numerous books on vegan cooking - but none appeal to my confirmed meat-eating hubby - he simply doesnt do beans or pasta or rice, so adding in some healthy animal free options has been murder. This is clearly laid out, and gives straightforward options for 'animal to veggie' replacements, and oodles of example recipes too! The imitation bacon bits recipe had him totally fooled! Some of the ingredients are american, so you need to be a little creative on the internet to source some of them -or spend time and money in Brighton (my nearest veggie haven). I still cant find 'vital wheat gluten flour' or tempeh - but i'll get there.

As a fairly new vegan baker with some disasters behind me I bought this book as it looked like just the thing to put me right. I realised that I was doing it all wrong before and by following the information and acually having more of an understanding after reading the book of the principles behind using the various ingredients for different reasons I am now much more successful! This book is a must for anyone wanting to bake and make vegan meals using existing cook books.

As a new vegan, I have found this book invaluable, as I can continue using old, favourite recipes, ones that I thought I would never be able to use again.

I usually give reviews that veer towards tough! But this book had me giddy when it arrived, came with me throughout the day to read on the way to work and while sitting in a café at lunch time. Its a veritable encyclopedia that really does what it says on the cover. There are charts for foods such as butter, eggs, cheese as well as foods that there are high rates of intolerance for, that allow you to instantly and directly replace them in any recipe, with a range of alternatives depending, on the recipe. There are also recipes for how to make the substitutes. Need blue cheese? Parmesan shavings - this is the place to go. Need mayonnaise or eggs for that chocolate cake batter or quiche - you got it here. Need Buttermilk - you got it here. Want to cut the flour out of the recipe you saw in a magazine - it's here, or want to make that creamy pepper sauce. Joy oh joy - its here.

I have spent hours and hours online trying to find answers to questions that are answered here back to back, in depth and comprehensively. If I could only own one book - this would be it. Six Stars

This was just what I needed to reuse all the traditional recipe books that I already owned. And also had some great recipes of its own! Particularly like the pb&j dessert

This is useful information, but some of the products listed as alternatives are not all that readily available in the UK.
It does what it says and provides alternatives that do help with a restricted diet.

Saw a copy of this at Veg Fest and thought it looked interesting so ordered it once home. It is a useful book that feels and looks lovely. Its printed on textured paper and the corners are slightly rounded giving it a soft comfortable feel to handle.
It’s divided up into sections to make it easy to find lists of replacement ideas for most non vegan or alternative solutions to things like sugar.
Packed with nice recipes and filled with illustrations and photographs to keep you interested.

Would recommend this book and will be buying a few more copies as Christmas presents.
