The pistachio lace tuiles were delicious, rich, crispy; I made a double batch because I had all the ingredients on hand (you probably won't, but since I have the previous Millennium cookbook, brown rice syrup was already in my pantry). The real hit with friends was the Coconut Sorbet. So simple...but my friend S---- ran outside after one bite and started yelling for D--- to come inside and "try this ice cream NOW!".
This cookbook is NOT for beginners. Try out The Voluptuous Vegan if you want to get started with simpler but still-delicious vegan food. I'm not a vegan...but I love the food in this cookbook.
I have both of Eric Tucker's books (Artful, and The Millennium Cookbook), and I reference them both frequently, whether I want to put on a pull-out-all-the-stops fabulous dinner party or just want a little inspiration for interesting flavor combinations for tonight's dinner.
Complicated? Doesn't have to be:
First thing you'll want to know about these books is that other reviewers are right that these are not meant for whipping up quick meals at the end of a long day. That said, I have on countless occasions pulled out Eric's books for inspiration for a quick something-or-other to do with, say, butternut squash. Say I've baked a butternut squash ahead of time and have it sitting in the fridge waiting for me to do something with it at the end of one of these hard days. A quick flip to the index of Artful for "squash, butternut" sends me to pp. 130-131, where I see the interesting combination of garlic, lemons, tahini, onion, tomato, and mint (plus some other things that I don't feel like putting in). I decide to combine those ingreds with some nice wild mushrooms I have in the fridge, a little minced serrano chile, and a smidge of raw sugar melted and poured over the squash, and I come up with a darned yummy and easy meal.Read more ›
They provide great pictures, easy-to-follow instructions and suggest substitutes for ingredients you may have trouble finding. All in all, a fantastic treat for vegans and non-vegans alike! Shock your meat-eating friends, they'll never know!
