Great book for your favourite childhood recipes
on 20 July 2015
This is the best vegan cookbook I've seen for recreating the dishes of the standard (meat-eater) diet. The dishes I've tried have all been just like the real thing - the quiche and saag tofu paneer are particularly good. There are no photos, but as someone else said you can find them on the gentle chef website, and many of the recipes will be familiar to most from their meat-eating days. Specialist ingredients are required for some recipes but these can easily be purchased on amazon. Recipes are concise and easy to follow and there are special sections on preparing tofu, seitanic, etc. All the staples are in here (cheese, dairy and meat alternatives) as well as American, European and eastern dishes. All in all a fantastic book for anyone look to recreate the food that they've most likely grown up with.
