5.0 out of 5 stars An essential addition
Just because you're a vegetarian doesn't mean you have to give up enjoying the taste of the sea. You can avoid fish in your diet and still please your palate and satisfy your appetite with gourmet quality dishes that give you the illusion of seafood through the clever culinary uses of vegetables and seasonings. That is the premise and promise of Nancy Berkoff's "Vegan...

1.0 out of 5 stars Not what I expected.
Be aware that this is more like a booklet with recipes that rely HEAVILY on processed faux seafood products. It has the feel of an informational product guide that would be free or for which you'd pay a few dollars (not $12.00) If I could find these products (and had any desire to buy them), why would I need a special cookbook? I could substitute them in any recipe. I...

2.0 out of 5 stars Weird...., November 27, 2008

This review is from: Vegan Seafood (Paperback)
I have been vegan for almost 20 years and don't miss fish at all...but the concept was intriguing and I am always trying to impress my flesh eating friends. I got this cookbook and was stunned that the recipes call for seafood and fish analogs (fake fish) that you have to buy somewhere.

I really thought the cookbook would be about how to take tofu or tempeh and create a fishlike dish....

I like Nancy Berkoff but feel that this cookbook is useless to me and anybody else who doesn't have easy access or interest (for me it's both) in purchasing this fake fish stuff....

5.0 out of 5 stars An essential addition, May 3, 2008
This review is from: Vegan Seafood (Paperback)
Just because you're a vegetarian doesn't mean you have to give up enjoying the taste of the sea. You can avoid fish in your diet and still please your palate and satisfy your appetite with gourmet quality dishes that give you the illusion of seafood through the clever culinary uses of vegetables and seasonings. That is the premise and promise of Nancy Berkoff's "Vegan Seafood: Beyond The Fish Shtick For Vegetarians", an impressively diverse collection of recipes that range from a Vegetarian 'Fish' Sauce; to an Ocean and Sea Minestrone; to Vegan 'Fish' Fillets' to a Vegan 'Crab' Ragoon; to the ever popular 'Fish' Taco. An extensive introduction includes websites offering 'Seafood' products and substitutions, cooking with vegan 'fish'; the use of saffron, and more. There are vegan recipes for soups, stocks, appetizers, salads, and main dishes. Of special note is the practical information about nutrition, including fish oil and Omega-3. Enhanced with a 'Guide to Resources from the Vegetarian Resources Group' and an Index, "Vegan Seafood" is an essential addition to personal, professional, and community library Cookbook, as well as Health/Nutrition, reference collections and vegetarian reading lists.
