A slice of heaven (even for non-vegans),
This review is from: Vegan Pie in the Sky: 75 Out-of-This-World Recipes for Pies, Tarts, Cobblers, and More (Paperback)
I'm a big dessert fan, but I was never THAT into pies. After trying a ton of recipes from this cookbook (full disclosure: I live with one of the recipe testers), I came 'round to loving them!
And even if you're an omnivore, you don't need to be scared off by the thought of vegan desserts. For many of these pies, I'd have never known they were vegan if I hadn't been told beforehand. They're all satisfying and delicious.
It's a useful, well-written cookbook - especially for vegans, naturally - but also for good anyone interested in learning more about the art of crafting pies (without having to deal with circumference and diameter). And it's a fun read, too! If you like a little wit 'n' banter in your recipes, you'll love Isa and Terry.
With 75 pies in the book, Vegan Pie in the Sky could fill your pie-hole for over a year (I'm just making the assumption that you'll make a pie a week, more if you're hungry), so you get a wide variety. The recipes range from the adventurous (chocolate olive oil shortbread crust? The idea freaked me out... but after trying the crust I give it a pie-five) to the traditional (Cosmos Apple Pie - and I usually don't even like apple pie, but this one is out of this world), so it'll satisfy every palate.
Pie it up!
