What a wonder this cookbook is! I don't hesitate to say this is by far the most wonderful vegan cookbook I have ever bought; it is simply packed with recipes (and variations), and don't be scared off by the lack of photos, every recipe is simply so mouthwatering! Bryanna Clark Grogan provides delicious alternatives to dairy-, egg- and meatproducts, and there is simply everything you'd need in this book: bread recipes, antipasti, soups, pasta dishes, vegetable dishes, meat-style dishes, desserts (great ice-creams!), you name it. I find myself reading the book again and again, thinking how will I ever have time enough to try out them all ... it is an essential to any vegan kitchen!

A passionate home cook that has been honing her cooking skills for the last 25 years, concentrating on Italian cooking for the last 10 years, writes this review. My favorite cookbooks are "The Professional Chef" by the Culinary Institute and "Culinary Artistry". With more than 500 cookbooks in my collection I am usually disappointed in my recent cookbook acquisitions. I am also very tough on Italian cookbooks in particular.

My husband and decided to try a vegan lifestyle about 3 months ago to reduce cholesterol. However, having to give up many of our favorite Italian foods was extremely difficult. Thankfully, as I was beginning to consider adding dairy back to our menu I found this book. It is a much better Italian cookbook than I expected it to be.

The book is outlined as follows:

1. Italian Cuisine

2. Ingredients and Equipment for Italian Cooking

3. Basic Recipes and Techniques

4. Sauces

5. Appetizers, Vegetable Side Dishes

6. Making Fresh Pasta

First Courses (Primi Piatti)

7. Pasta in Sauce

8. Stuffed Pasta: Dumplings, Crepes, and Baked, Layered and Molded Pasta Dishes

9. Pasta in Broth and Soups

10. Cornmeal and Rice Dishes

Second Courses (Secondi Piatti)

11. Baked Dishes: Omelets, Savory Cakes, Tarts, Gratins, and other Vegetable Casseroles

12. Vegetable and Bean Entrees and Stews

13. Meat Free Entrees

14. Bread, Rolls, Pizza, Hearth Breads and Stuffed Breads

I've been vegan for about 4 years now, and I've been cooking all of my meals for 2 or 3. I've spent over $100 on a shelf full of vegan cookbooks. This one is the best I own. It's the only cookbook I have that has recipes that make food that's outright better than anything I ate before I went vegan! Ever since I started making my own vegan pizzas, I absolutely stopped missing the greasy things that I'd been getting delivered, and the pasta recipes here are the best I've ever had.

The only problem with this book is that the recipes can take a while to prepare. If you're not a big fan of cooking, this probably isn't the book for you. But if you're glad to spend an hour in the kitchen making a meal and want to have some great vegan food, this book is a must!

I have had this cookbook for several years and it has become one of those books where I wonder if I should just copy out the 3 or 4 recipes I actually use onto recipe cards and ship it off to the second hand bookstore to recoup the shelf space. Don't get me wrong - I think Bryanna Clark Grogan is a skilled vegan cook - it's just I didn't appreciate the approach this takes to Italian Vegan cooking, or find it very useful to me overall.

The Pros -

1. The author clearly knows what she's talking about. There is a lengthy section in the beginning of the cookbook providing a wealth of information about Italian cuisine and ingredients. She is also of Italian ancestory, so she is familiar enough with the cuisine to provide reasonable vegan alternatives.

2. There are several innovative techniques introduced which help make particular ingredients or dishes more accessible to the vegan diet or to the average cook. This includes instructions for making risotto in the microwave, or using chickpea flour as a replacement for eggs in fresh pasta.

3. What I was most looking for in this cookbook is an introduction to Italian recipes which will contribute somthing to a vegan diet, ie. traditional items which are already vegetarian/vegan. There are some examples of this, although not nearly as many as I'd hoped. For example, the lemon granita recipe is absolutely wonderful, and provides a totally satisfying alternative to dairy-based frozen desserts.

The Cons -

1. I found far too many of the recipes were attempting to make vegan versions of meat and dairy heavy dishes. While there is some place for this, generally the result is time-consuming and heavy soy and gluten-laiden meals you wouldn't want to eat very often.

This was a great addition to my collection of vegetarian recipe books. Not only does it list authentic vegan Italian recipes of all kinds, it explains every ingredient and gives background on Italian food and veganism in general, without dwelling on things we already know as informed vegetarians! It would make a good gift for anyone who loves to cook, vegetarian or not.
