5.0 out of 5 stars Romero outdoes herself....again!, December 20, 2012
This review is from: Vegan Eats World: 300 International Recipes for Savoring the Planet (Hardcover)
So, I am not a new vegan, nor is this my first encounter with the extraordinary skills of Ms. Romero. But this is one of the most exciting and completely Braveheart recipe collections I have ever seen. And Romero never left Brooklyn! How is it possible?
Romero reimagines cuisines of the world from a vegan viewpoint, something I had almost thought impossible. But she captures the flavor, color, and sense of the original with flair and originality and for the first time I have be able to wholeheartedly enjoy the world's diverse bounty.
I was able to enjoy Pumpkin Kibbe even though I did not have a food processor to grind the pumpkin and bulgur together. I used a 100-year-old old-fashioned hand-crank meat grinder and the result was sublime. I especially enjoyed the Lemon Yogurt Cashew sauce, and the recommended very hot paste that accompanied the recipe. Both added immeasurably to the authentic taste.
One thing I was familiar with in years gone by were Chinese steamed "bao" and I was thrilled to be able to recreate the wondrous experience of eating them again. The recipe is flawless in terms of taste, though I can't imagine any Chinese person using several pans to prepare the filling. The cornstarch can be added to the hot five-spice seitan in the same pot until thickened.
I was a tiny bit disappointed that Romero did not include any of her favorite Latin dishes, but she'd done a whole book on that called Viva Vegan! and what a wonder it is. I don't suppose she could reprise some of that without covering old ground. But it is worth every cent and it has recipes North Americans might find closer to home.
Romero has done aspiring vegans a huge service by providing recipes from around the world. She has added diversity and color, flavor and interest to our menu and these dishes can be served with panache and joy to those curious onlookers to a vegan lifestyle.
