5.0 out of 5 stars Enormously useful book with delicious recipes, September 30, 2010
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Vegan Unplugged: A Pantry Cuisine Cookbook and Survival Guide (Paperback)
This book is unique and really wonderful! I am so glad I have it. It is filled with genuinely useful information about preparing for a power outage, and what do you while you're in one. The list of ingredients to have in your preparedness box is so inventive - who would have thought to put, for example, kalamata olives, sundried tomatoes, and veggie bullion cubes in your box? But all these ingredients and their other ideas will add a lot to the experience. Great advice about cooking equipment too. As this book points out also, these recipe ideas will work for a lot of other situations besides just weather-related power outages, such as traveling, being home sick and not wanting to shop, and dorm rooms. The recipes are a HUGE step up from opening a can of green beans!! They are inspired by Asian, Middle Eastern, Latin, and Asian flavors. How about curries, pilafs, stir fries, salads, and homemade soups, with desserts like rum balls and chocolate pie to finish it off? All from a pantry box. The authors write from experience - they lived through a week-long power outage following an East Coast hurricane. Even if you are not a cookbook buyer, this is one that belongs on every bookshelf. I am planning to buy more copies to give away to friends!
