"Not all-vegan, but it *is* all-vegetarian. This is the complete reference for *everything* -- want to make a pilaf? Look it up in the index; you've got your basic definition, recipe, and 5 variations. Ditto for a compote. If I could have one cooking reference work on my shelf, this would be it -- it's an invaluable resource of basic techniques, staples, and definitions."
"This is the only vegan baking book you'll ever need. It's simple; it doesn't have crazy ingredients; its recipes are shockingly delicious. It covers everything: cakes, cookies, quick breads, scones, muffins. Their scones are the best ones I've ever had, vegan or non-. Their chocolate cake is the easiest I've ever made and gets rave reviews from my omnivore friends. So simple! So delicious!"
"Not my top reference, since I'm more grain-and-veggies heavy, and this book is more tofu-tempeh-and-protein heavy. But it's still a solid reference to have on my shelf, and I'm almost always pleasantly surprised when I do. Their carrot-ginger soup, for example, is dead simple, and amazingly delicious."
