5.0 out of 5 stars SMILE! Say Uncheese!, 14 Oct. 2006
This review is from: The Ultimate Uncheese Cookbook (Paperback)
This is the best cook book I've bought for ages, I just cant quite believe that this delicious food is dairy free, fairly low in calories and actually good for me! I want to open up a restaurant in its honour!

Every recipe I've tried so far has far exceeded my expectations.

Some of the ingredients can be difficult to find, especially for U.K residents, The only place I found the Nutritional Yeast flakes (a cheesy sort of nutty food supplement) was on goodnessdirect.co.uk's website. Agar agar (a tasteless nutritious sea vegetable that acts as a gelling agent or gelatine substitute) should not be bought from goodnessdirect. I paid 3 pounds and 69 pence for 28g (and subsequently bought 4 boxes as I thought I'd never find it anywhere else) only to find that you can get it in chinese supermarkets for about 60p or so in powder form!

In terms of it being an American book and everything being measured in 'cups', its easy to use if you just get yourself a cheap set of American measuring cups, available almost everywhere now. (a set of regular 'key' measuring spoons is also a good buy if you dont already have some)

Overall, the uncheeses are remarkably cheese-like, I'm sure by now you must think that I work for the author, but believe me I dont! I'd say that you could easily fool non suspecting guests into thinking they were eating something with cheese in it. If you like cheese then you'll love this book, be prepared for something a little different than cheese as we know it and respect it for what it is and you'll be fine.

Its nice to see the range of food available for vegans and the lactose intolerant widened by this book, its such a shame that commecially bought vegan 'cheese' is usually full of artificial ingredients and cheap, nasty 'foodstuffs' that arnt exactly good for the system (I'd rather eat actual cheese most of the time infact)

Keep up the good work!
