About the Author

Since 2000. Ryland Peters & Small was founded in 1995 to bring a breath of fresh air to illustrated book publishing. At their offices in London and New York they work with the best authors, photographers, illustrators and stylists to create books that combine innovative, cutting-edge design and images with practical, accessible information. Their beautiful books are devoted to the pleasures of life: health and wellbeing, our homes and gardens, the food we eat, the wine we drink. Ryland Peters & Small staff has enormous fun creating their books, and they hope you have as much fun reading them. In 1999 they launched the Paperstyle gift range of elegant notecards, journals, interactive journals and address books. All perfect for gifts but perhaps too good to give away?

I was in need of some new vegan cookbooks, so I went to the local bookstore to check out what was available in person. Of the dozen or so I looked through, this was one of two that made the cut.

What I like:

Pictures for EVERY recipe, all looking extremely delicious.

Directions limited to a few paragraphs.

Ingredient lists are fairly short.

No hard to find ingredients.

Little/no fake meat or cheese -- there are no entries for seitan/tempeh in the index.

No attempted brainwashing, political commentary, suggested meal plans, or any other fluff -- just 100% recipes (and photos).

You certainly don't have to be a vegan to love these recipes. They're simple enough, fun to cook and taste great. (Though the person who said "No hard to find ingredients." is definitely wrong, there's a lot of exotic ingredients here. Most people don't have tahini or Sichuan peppercorns in their pantry.)

The recipes are filling and tasty enough that you could make them for anyone and turn people on to simple, vegan cooking.

Format: Hardcover
I have had some prior cooking experience from helping parents in the kitchen, but I never really had much experience in putting together my own meal. I am also starting to cook and eat vegetarian meals for the first time. This book has been very helpful in guiding a newbie like me to build confidence in the foods I make. I have tried 6 dishes so far since new year started, and I have loved every dish! Pros: Picture of every dish, simple instructions, and has a list of ingredients for easy purchase, ingredients used are fresh. I dont really see any cons in this book, but I guess it would be nice if it had included nutrition values and a time frame needed for the dish next to the title.

I rarely return books, but this one is going back to the store. I chose it over another because od all the pictures and it truly is a beautiful book to look at. However the ingredients would only be easy to find if you live in a large city. I consider "easy" less than say 6 ingredients or so. I just randomly turned to a page and it required 11, here, I'll do it again...sheesh 15!!!

Do these sound like easy to find things to you? Kaffir lime leaves, preserved vine leaves, gow gee, mangetouts, daikon, or Harissa paste?

These are probably great recipes but the title is very misleading. I am trying to learn to eat in a new way and this book is very discouraging.

My recommendation for this book would be to a serious foodie with lots of time and gasoline to travel all over looking for ingredients. If you are looking for easy, you won't find it here. The title should really be changed!

If I find a better book I will report back.

This is a beautifully produced book with some really great recipes--and I'm not vegan.

However, there are places where the book does not use standard American names/terms for ingredients and in those places it could be vague or confussing for users. There are also some apparent errors or omissions. For example, the Butternut soup recipe calls for the addition of 4 cups of water in addition to the 2 cups of vegetable broth which, when added to the standard sized butternut squash, turns the soup into a very thin "butternut stock" rather than a thick and creamy soup that will allow the pine nuts to sit on top of the surface like they do in the accompanying photograph. Another example of its unclarity or ommisions is the roasted carrot and barley recipe which makes reference to the use of miso in the description, but there is no miso in the ingredients list, making the reader wonder if the European producers of the book are refering to soy sauce when they say "miso".

But there are some super-yummy recipes and it is well laid out.

This product is very helpful in allowing me to cook great recipes without meat. I also purchased one for my daughter to enable her to do so as well. The recipes are easy, nutritional and tasty.

I actually received this book as a gift and have since ordered it for two other people. The recipes are simple, ingredient lists are relatively short, and the flavors are fantastic!

This is HANDS DOWN the best vegan cookbook out there. I plan to cook every recipe in the book a la Julie and Julia (have probably done 1/4 or 1/3 so far.) Each family member rates the recipe on a scale of 1 (inedible) to 10 (gourmet delight) and I date the "event." I also notate if I omitted or substituted an ingredient. Only ONE recipe has been below six, and that is some dessert bars that simply disintegrated. A caveat? I substituted honey when the recipe called for Karo syrup. That's yet another thing I like about this book; it's really savvy as far as nutritional value with almost zilch of fake food or bad-for-you ingredients (like...Karo syrup.)

If you like a touch of gourmet, lots of fresh, but don't want all the expensive fake meat- and dairy-like ingredients, this is YOUR book. Also, the pictures are gorgeous and realistic PLUS I have learned SO MUCH about cooking, like dunking veggies in ice water for X number of minutes. Being a Southern cook, I appreciate the aesthetics of this author and hope he does a follow-up.

I cannot imagine thinking this book is for the gourmet chef only. I rarely spend more than an hour on one of these delectable dishes. Only the Persian rice dish has been a major pain as far as labor intensive, but OH, was it good!!!! Definitely for a special occasion, but isn't that what food is about?

I know I'm gushing, but it really does rate, and I have had at different times a slew of cookbooks. Take 'em all and give me this one.
