More About the Author

To see more than 100 photos of recipes in "World Vegan Feast", go to:
Bryanna is the author of 8 popular vegan cookbooks, including the new release, World Vegan Feast, vegan bestseller "Nonna's Italian Kitchen", and is co-author of several others. She wrote and published the popular subscription newsletter, the Vegan Feast, for 5 years, and maintains a vegan cooking blog,

Bryanna has devoted over 40 years to the study of cooking and nutrition, the last 23 to vegan cooking. Eighteen of her (pre-vegetarian) recipes appeared in The Harrowsmith Cookbook, Vol. I and some in The Harrowsmith Pasta Cookbook, as well. She wrote newspaper cooking columns for over 20 years, wrote and edited a newsletter on bread and sourdough, and was a frequent contributor and reviewer for Vegetarian Times magazine for 5 years. In 2001 she became a "resident expert" and moderator of the Vegsource New Vegetarian discussion board.

She has conducted cooking workshops and classes in her local area and at numerous health and vegetarian conferences and gatherings in North America over the years (including several NAVS Summerfests). In February 2002 she was a guest speaker at the International Scientific Conference on Chinese Plant Based Nutrition and Cuisine in Philadelphia, hosted by the American Vegan Societyand the Institute for Plant Based Nutrition. Over several years, Bryanna has demonstrated some of her recipes and signed books at the Vegetarians of Washington 2-day "Vegfest" in Seattle, and has also appeared at the Portland, Oregon's VegFest. Some of her recipes appear in the Seattle VegFest cookbook, The Veg-Feasting Cookbook . In April of 2006 and 2007, Bryanna was the only Canadian presenting, alongside many reknowned vegan chefs and restauranteurs, at the Vegetarian Awakening vegan chefs' conference in Grand Rapids, MI. Bryanna has also presented at the McDougall Celebrity Chef Weekend in Santa Rosa, CA. She appeared as a panelist on 2 panels (Nutrition and Publishing) at the 1st vegan bloggers conference in Portland,OR. the VidaVeganCon in August 2011.

Her recipes also appear on Dr. Andrew Weil's website, and his new HealthyAging site, and in Howard Lyman's ("the Mad Cowboy", a former cattle rancher turned vegan activist) book, No More Bull!. Some of her recipes also appear in Cooking with PETA.

Clinical researcher Dr. Neal Barnard of Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine asked Bryanna to develop recipes for his ground-breaking book on diabetes, "Dr. Neal Barnard's Program for Reversing Diabetes: The Scientifically Proven System for Reversing Diabetes Without Drugs". Bryanna appears in the new vegan cooking DVD "Everyday Dish" with authors Julie Hasson and Dreena Burton. She is currently working on recipes and research for an exciting new book with David Lee, founder of the Fieldroast company in Seattle, WA. She is also working on a book on making homemade seitan in a number of ways.

Bryanna was born in California, but has resided in British Columbia, Canada for many years. She raised a family of four children, two foster sons, and also has two stepsons, and 9 grandchildren. She was a La Leche League leader (mother-to-mother breastfeeding support) for several years and taught cooking and baking at LLL International conferences in Chicago, Kansas City, Washington, DC and Anaheim, as well as serving as an Associate Editor for the LLL official cookbook, Whole Foods for the Whole Family, still in print (NAL Books). She was also instrumental in opening the first vegetarian restaurant in Courtenay, BC.

Bryanna loves experimenting and learning. The main focus of her cooking is low-fat vegan cooking, particularly ethnic cooking. She is considered an expert at making tofu appealing to die-hard "soyaphobes", but in her books World Vegan Feast, 20 Minutes to Dinner, Nonna's Italian Kitchen, she has addressed the needs of vegans allergic to soy by providing non-soy alternatives to most of the soy-based recipes. With each book she learns more about the processes of cooking--how and why things work. Her great joy is sharing what she's learned with others, and she delights in helping vegans keep true to their heritage through "veganizing" their family and national recipes.

Bryanna has run a small branch of the Vancouver Is. Regional Library for 30 years and hopes to write a mystery novel someday with a vegan detective, combining two of her life interests. She also loves dancing, particularly Middle Eastern and Latin, and danced with the Melissae Dance Company of Denman Island, BC for 6 years.

Format: Paperback
You do not have to be put off by the title of this book. I'm neither menopausal, nor a woman, and I do find this a great cookbook, as any of Bryanna's books. This book, however, emphasizes a whole lot more of the health benefits of incorporating soy in your diet, not only for easing menopausal discomforts, but the thorough documentation should also reassure those who believe that it's impossible to get enough calcium through a vegan diet. And to those who claim not to like tofu - you obviously have never tried any of Bryanna's recipes! If you're new to vegan cooking, this is a great introduction on a daily use of soymilk, tofu, and textured soy protein, in everything from your breakfast meals, lunch, snacks, dinner entrees and desserts - I can strongly recommend you try out Bryanna's Lasagne Al Forno Bolognese if you want proof how wonderful vegan food can taste! You will not miss neither meat nor cheese in this one! Bryanna's low-fat guacamole, eggless egg salad, mac and cheese, Italian stew, pineapple sweet and sour, not to mention a fabulous soy and seitan turkey, are just a few of my favourites, there's simply something for everyone! A number of the recipes have appeared in Bryanna's other books which I can also strongly recommend you to get ...

I am always excited when a new cookbook by Bryanna is published. There is so much mis-information and hype around soy and menopause. Bryanna has done a great service to women (and their families and friends) by presenting her well-researched information in such a clear, realistic manner. The recipes make wonderful food, no surprise to anyone who has cooked from her other books. Anyone who would like to learn more about cooking with soy will benefit from this book.

Format: Paperback
Although Bryanna might have aimed this cookbook at menopausal women its content would benefit everyone - vegans and non-vegans alike.
Up-to-date health advice and suggestions are included at the front of the book but its main appeal lies in the wide range of delicious recipes that all include the wonder food, soy.
I am nowhere near menopausal age but I bought this simply because I love Bryanna's books in general. I think the title might put some people off before they check out the content, but do take more than a peek because it's definitely worth it. Bryanna Clark Grogan has come up trumps again!
(Also recommended by the same author - Nonna's Italian Kitchen)

I got this book, thinking there would be some useful recipes. What I got was a book full of recipes that call for unusual ingredients you can only find at a health food store. We only have one decent health food store in our town, and even that is not well stocked. I wish I'd known more about the book before I decided to buy it. I guess it's called - BUYER BEWARE.
