This review is from: The Ultimate Uncheese Cookbook (Paperback)
As a long time vegan, I was almost embarrassed about buying a 'fake' cheese cookbook. Its soo much more though! The recipes are reliably wonderful and surprisingly healthy. Potential allergens are listed at the side, they have interesting variations to most recipes.
It does use american cup sizes (you dip the different size cups into dry or wet ingredients), as do a lot of vegan cook books, personally I find that far easier than weighing things out, I actually convert English weighed recipes to cups!
Ingredients that might be new to people (nutritional yeast, umeboshi plums) can be found in health food shops or often supermarkets now. The only pain is getting onion powder, I used to make it in a coffee grinder, but you could always use onion salt?
The lemon teasecake keeps people guessing, and the chocolate cheesecake is devestatingly nice, worth getting the book for alone! All the savoury recipes I've tried have either been nice or fantastic, it's definitely one of the few books I've used regularly for years, not for the cheese factor but for general tastiness and the american exotic touch (apparently cheese soup is a big thing over there.??? recipe's dead nice though!)

Shops that sell Indian produce sell onion powder, or as another reviewer has said onion granules can easily be bought in supermarkets - I prefer the granules they tend to keep better for longer and are just as easy to use.
