4.0 out of 5 stars Great recipe book, 28 Mar. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Conscious Cook: Delicious Meatless Recipes That Will Change the Way You Eat (Hardcover)
It only lost one star because some of the ingredients were difficult to source, namely quality seitan for the chik'n substitute. I've been making my own seitan, but to get a beautiful recipe book only to discover that the chef doesn't show you how to make your own seitan (the powder is available in the UK and even organic), was disappointing because many internet recipes just aren't up to it. (Tip: wrap in foil and steam the seitan, don't ever boil it!). This is beautifully illustrated, has some good pages on herbs and other ingredients but it is US-centric, which makes sourcing one or two ingredients problematic, expensive or impossible. You can use alternatives though, like quorn and vegetable proteins for things like the wrap recipe until you've mastered your seitan! This cook book is still refreshing, inspiring and a welcome addition to my cook book collection. Would recommend.
