Review

No more healthy food that tastes like sawdust; with these dishes, Sarah has managed to make vegan food fun, tasty, and sexy! What more could a hedonist like me ask for?
―Jane Wiedlin, The Go-Go's (Jane Wiedlin 2008-07-01)

Vegans who are this much fun could make Ted Nugent into a convert. More Sarah for everyone!!
―Shoshana, The Monkey Bunch (Shoshana 2008-07-01)

With Kramer’s latest book, Vegan a Go-Go, we connect with the punk princess of meatlessness once again. This new set of recipes, is collected into a mini-tome so tiny it's no bigger than a change purse. And for practical purpose, because as a “survival manual for vegans on the road”, it's designed to be easily tucked into a purse, suitcase, car glove compartment, or even a passport folder. We love the spunky graphic look to it.
City Food (Vancouver) (City Food 2008-09-15)

Sarah's food and travel manifesto, Vegan a Go-Go!, will surely bring devotees to their knees: Kramer's lovable personality, to-die-for recipes, and campy, retro-style photography ooze from the adorable pocket-sized book.
VegNews (VegNews 2008-10-23)

With an awesome 150 recipes, Vegan a Go-Go is meant to fit in the backpack of the herbivore on the road.... If you love to cook, this is definitely a book you’ll want to check out!
Shamelessmag.com (Shamelessmag.com 2008-10-29)

This pocket-size cookbook is a useful resource whether your family is vegan or just looking for easy ways to eat healthy while you're away from home. It's full of helpful travel tips and delicious veggie-packed recipes (like Pun-kin Pasta and Nutty Broccoli) you can prepare without much fuss in the kitchen where you're staying.
Scholastic Parent & Child (Scholastic Parent & Child 2008-11-05)

Kramer's book is a fun little book--about the size of a passport--sporting a retro look, snappy, fun writing, and lush-sounding recipes.
Monday Magazine (Monday Magazine 2008-11-20)

I got a little more than I expected when I opened Sarah Kramer's pocket-sized travel guide, Vegan a Go-Go. Sure, it has the usual Kramerish type recipes, but it also has a wealth of plain old reading material. I loved the stories of Kramer as a child traveling with theater parents. I also appreciated the tales of Sarah as a young adult just learning about the world and the troubles that ensued. And I found it interesting how both of these experiences shaped her later adventures.
VegFamily (VegFamily 2008-12-11)

Kramer shows off her glam-punk style throughout the book and takes an informal, heart-felt approach to her writing.... [Her] recipes are approachable and fun.
The Kitchn.com (The Kitchn 2009-04-21)

Snacks like Righteous Orbs and Chocolate Nut Energy Bars are the perfect pick-me-up for foodies traveling by train, plane, car or foot and on a budget.
E: The Environmental Magazine (E: The Environmental Magazine 2009-05-02)

This is much more than a traveller's cookbook; there are plenty of good travel tips that cover much more than food choices.
North Shore News (North Vancouver, BC) (North Shore News 2009-12-14)

About the Author

Sarah Kramer is the author or co-author of four previous bestselling cookbooks, How It All Vegan, The Garden of Vegan, La Dolce Vegan, and Vegan à Go-Go! She lives in Victoria, BC with her husband, where she manages a tattoo shop in addition to creating vegan masterpieces.

More About the Author

Sarah Kramer is a vegan cookbook superstar!

Combining her love of food and her love of animals into a home-made cookbook zine to give to friends and family as x-mas presents. Reaction to the zine was so overwhelming that she realized that she was on to something special and her aspirations to do something with her life that made a difference in the world soon became a reality.

This tiny little zine grew into the best selling cookbook How It All Vegan (which has sold over 150 000+ copies and is often referred to by fans as "The Vegan Bible") only to be followed by it's triumphant sequel The Garden of Vegan and La Dolce Vegan both of which are hot on HIAV heels as best sellers.

Sarah's newest book Vegan A Gogo! hit bookshelves in '08.
Sarah's newest work is a 2010 Calendar that hit shelves in the summer of '09.

HIAV has also been awarded the 2003/2004 Veg News Veggie award for Best Veg Cookbook. Sarah was awarded Veg News Veggie award for favourite cookbook author in 2005 and a M-Award in 2006 for Favourite Book for LDV.

Sarah is known for her sassy vintage style and layman's approach to Veganism, and has been joyfully spreading the Vegan gospel to anyone who will listen. Appearing on national TVg9vlKD4o shows like Canada AM and W-5 as well as local shows like New Day Live, Breakfast Television and Go Magazine, she has also appeared as a guest on numerous radio stations such as CBC and NPR. Sarah also does live cooking appearances at festivals such as Word on The Street, Earth Save events and Vegetarian Conferences throughout Canada and the United States.

A self confessed web junkie, Sarah created a safe haven at her website GoVegan.net for Vegan and curious Vegans to meet and talk about issues. She has written columns for Herbivore Magazine and Veg News as well as running The Tattoo Zoo with her husband/artist Gerry Kramer. When she's not at the tattoo shop, or working on her photography she's in her kitchen working hard on perfecting recipes for her cookbooks.

Herbivore Magazine Sarah was born and bred in Regina, Saskatchewan and hopped on a train in 1988 and headed west for Victoria BC, where she has lived ever since. She enjoys long walks on the beach. She laughs loudly during movies...even when nobody else is laughing. She loves puppies and kittens and is scared to go into the basement by herself. She lives with her husband Gerry and Fergus the Dog, on a nice street somewhere near the beach in Victoria.

Sarah believes that Veganism is not just about food, but is a positive compassionate lifestyle choice. She believes the choices we make, however small (from the food that we eat to the shoes that we choose to buy) have a direct impact on how the world turns. Never one to bash people over the head with an aggressive message, Sarah believes that it only takes one tiny spark to start a fire and she has a pack of matches and is ready to burn!

Thank you Sarah Kramer for such a great cookbook!
Leigh Colby
I rate it well because I can not say anything bad about it as I have yet to make any of the recipes here.
Jennifer Wohl
There are lots of recipes and most of them are quite simple.

Look, no one loves Sarah Kramer more than I do. I think she's terrific and I have her other books.
There are two HUGE problems with this teeny tiny book.
1. It's useless as a true vegan travel tool. Virtually every recipe would be just too involved to create on the road. And the information is too thin to make a book out of. That's why it was produced in a mini book format. Yes, you could pack it but you'd never look at it.
2. Most of the recipes are a rehash. Just in a tiny format.
So if you have a very simple Kramer recipe you really like. Just bring a copy of it with you on your next trip. It will take up even less space than this tiny useless book.

I really didn't expect to like this cook book as much as I do! I bought it for a trip to Denmark. Many of the ingredients were not available there (or were extremely expensive), but those we made were really good. We did try some substitutions that turned out well. As for a travel cook book it is most useful to people traveling to other people's homes because one really needs a well stocked kitchen and electricity! It wouldn't work for someone traveling in hotels or camping. The biggest surprise for me is that this has become my go-to cookbook at home. So far, the recipes I've tried are good, most are quite simple, and the best part is that I can throw the book in my purse, pick a recipe during the day, and stop at the grocery store on the way home from work and pick up the ingredients. And I figure, since it's usually sitting in the basket with my groceries, it's a good advertisement for veganism.

Sarah Kramer's Vegan A Go-Go is so darn cute you might want to just coo over it instead of reading it. This would be a mistake, because it is a lifesaver! It's full of travel tips, cute photos, and Sarah's classic recipes.

Traveling when you're vegan can be very difficult. Often, you're in a place you don't know, and you don't always know where you can eat (unless you get a plain salad, yuck!). Sarah makes it easy by giving travel tips for tons of situations and destinations, and so many of her recipes are quick and easy and sometimes things you can cobble together on the fly.

Sarah's saved my sanity years ago. I went to my then boyfriend's house for thanksgiving. It's in another state. His family didn't approve of or understand my vegan ways, and there was little to nothing I could eat. At that time, I traveled with How It All Vegan, and I could make some food at home, and her cute photos and stories helped me keep my good humor. Now I can have that same traveling comfort in a pocket sized portion! :>

This is the tiniest Kramer book, but it's also the sweetest. The color photos, icons, places for notes.... All I can say is Sarah, thank you for being you and making it that much easier for the rest of us vegans to be who we are.

P.S. If you haven't bought one of Sarah's previous books (and Tayna for the first two) then Sarah's recipes are quick, easy, can be made with ingredients on hand, and are nutritious. This book is a lot like its author... it's cute, but it has substance!

Don't be surprised by it's diminutive stature when it arrives, this little book packs a big wallop!
Sarah shares her own travel adventure stories (both good and bad) and great travel tips. The book's size (about the dimensions of a passport, but thicker) is perfect for taking along on trips. It includes recipes for snacks and meals to take on the road. Also there are new recipes and favorites from previous books that you will have on hand to make for friends and relatives while you are visiting. If you've got really good friends, maybe they'll cook them for you!
A great vegan resource.

Between me and my daughter, we have all of Sarah's cookbooks. Vegan a go go came into my life just as I was diagnosed with celiac disease and multiple food allergies, in addition to already being vegan. Most of the recipes are quick, delicious and are easy to prepare while staying in someone's home. Sarah's book has relieved me of the anxiety of traveling with food limitations. She has spaces in the back of the book for additional recipes, which I've already filled up. Her Rightouse Orbs are yummy and the Chocolate Banana no-bake pie is great...even without the crust (celia, ya know) Take this little cookbook and run with it!

Format: Paperback
With her trademark sass, style, and scrumptious recipes, Sarah Kramer is officially back. It's been three years since La Dolce Vegan, and frankly, we were getting good and fed up with not having a new book of hers to ogle. Thankfully, Kramer delivers with this pint-sized guide to on-the-road sanity. The majority of the recipes are collated from her three previous books, which makes taking this tiny tome along on trips a much more suitcase-friendly option than schlepping around your whole Kramer collection. Tried-and-true recipes aside, there are a few new ones, along with a bevy of smart travel ideas. Did you know you can make your own toothpaste out of baking soda and salt? With quotes from satisfied customers gracing many of the recipes, you'll have plenty to read during your next plane, train, or automobile ride. Just be sure to hit the grocery store as soon as you reach your destination: all the recipe reading will make you hungry!
