Review

In a world of meh, Alan Roettinger goes for extraordinary. "I want to make extraordinary food accessible to the average person." It's not about the Food Network, it's not about the Cordon Bleu and "it's not that difficult," says the author of the new cookbook "Extraoardinary Vegan." "It's about attention and love." --Ellen Kanner, Huffinton Post

There are over 100 recipes using plant-based foods that will open your eyes (and your taste-buds!) to a whole new world of vegan living. His cooking style and tantalizing recipes will make you want to take chances in the kitchen that you have never taken before. All the recipes in this cookbook are also gluten-free. Some of my favorite recipes include the Roasted Cauliflower and Beet Salad, Spicy Minted Slaw, and the Pears in Pomegranate Juice. This cookbook is perfect for those planning on making the upcoming resolution of eating and living a healthier lifestyle in the New Year. --Kathleen Reale, Be Free for Me

What I like very much about Extraordinary Vegan by Alan Roettinger, is the clarity of the book. Not only the myriad of attractive pictures, but the recipes themselves are clear and lead to easy preparation. For those not familiar with vegan cooking, which eschews the use of any animal products including honey, it can seem foreign and daunting. But Alan Roettinger puts it easily into one's grasp. --Amy Siegal, Gluten Free Maven

Alan Roettinger and his fabulous new book, EXTRAORDINARY VEGAN hits the sweet spot...His recipes are a wonderful balance of health and pleasure that are sophisticated yet accessible...If you want some interesting vegan recipes that will rise above the crowd, there are some fabulous ideas in this book. --Tess Masters, The Blender Girl

This is a great item for anyone who entertains, even if they are not vegan. The diverse recipes are sophisticated, yet accessible. For first time vegans, it offers an array of simple to complex entrees, essential staples, fragrant spices, and other exotic ingredients. There is something for every performance level, from home cook to society hostess, to a professional Chef, looking for something unique and exciting. My mom loved it!

Extraordinary Vegan is a great little book for vegans looking for something new, non-vegans looking for tempting recipes that reduce their consumption of animal products and improve their health and diet, and any foodies who just like to eat well and deliciously. I would rate it 4.5 stars--I liked it a lot from what I have cooked so far.

I am always looking for vegan cookbooks with unique recipes to keep my taste buds happy so I was pleased to receive a copy of Extraordinary Vegan to review. Written by a private chef (and writer, food designer and public speaker), the 100+ recipes are elegant enough to entertain with, but easy enough to recreate at home. I have tried three recipes so far--Miso Broth with Ginger (made with a vegan kombu dashi stock instead of the fish-based bonito stock), Banana-Mint Smoothie (coconut water, bananas, hempseeds, dates and mint), and finally the very extraordinary 'A Very Different Butternut Soup' (made with roasted red pepper, yams, butternut squash, smoked paprika, chile powder, tons of garlic and saffron). All recipes were written clearly, were easy to follow, tasted great and a little extra twist of interesting ingredients that make them memorable.

Note: I was given a copy of this book by the publisher in return for an honest review but was not compensated in any way. My thoughts, feelings and experience cooking from it are, as always, my own.

I was really excited to get this book! Alan has worked as a private chef for more than 30 years! He has catered to the vegan likes of the rich as famous! Alan brings his wealth of knowledge and experience to the table in this cookbook. He shares creative recipes that have clear directions are are easy to follow! The recipes are sure to please the average housewife (like me) and the experienced chef! Though the title says "vegan" this book has wonderful recipes that even meat lovers will enjoy! Within the book you can find recipes for breakfast, sauces, dips, condiments, snacks, soups, salads, beans and lentils, pasta and grains, vegetables and desserts! It is a great addition to this homecook's library!
