This review is from: Nonna's Italian Kitchen: Delicious Homestyle Vegan Cuisine (Paperback)
I'm sure every vegan recognises the scenario, you choose from the panoply of beautiful Italian dishes, many of which are apparently vegan, only to be dissapointed upon discovering that they contain just the smallest amount of anchovy, a ladle of stock or the ubiquitous sprinkle of Parmesan. Well help is at hand. This book may not help you to find Italian food in restaurants but it will give you the chance to make your own mouth-watering, animal free versions at home.
Nonna's recipes are designed with practicalily in mind. The dishes are healthy (apart some of the stunning desserts), easy to make and you wont have to board a plane to get hold of the ingredients. The pasta dishes were filling and immensely tasty with innovative uses of seasonal vegetables. Some of the pizza toppings were inspirational. Not only did they look like the pictures in a cookery book but they they tasted like you thought they should. My kids loved them and they thought that pizza without cheese was like leaving the jam out of jam doughnuts.
This book is a must have for every vegan and food lover alike who wishes to enjoy the taste of dishes steeped in tradition and prepared with love.
