Each food-type that needs a vegan substitute has its own chapter and meant as a "How to" and, in fact, are titled as "How to Substitute for..." It's such a relief to have this information in one handy guidebook-style paperback.
The *GEMS* of this book are the food substitution guidelines and charts for each type of food. In the back of the book (pp. 266-269) is a full chart of substitutions. I was surprised by this book's smaller size, but it's great because I can fit it in my purse when I go to shop for ingredients.
I am new to vegan foods and cooking, so I can't speak for experienced vegans, but this book is a must have IMO.
It's a notable flaw, but aside from this it's great to have the wealth of information available to me wherever I go that the Kindle version provides.
This is EXACTLY the kind of book that as someone new to eating healthy in a vegan manner I was needing but not finding anywhere. I expect to be referring to it often.
Since these tables are really the heart of the book, it reduces the usefulness of the book by about half. If they had not made the tables special inserts, but simply part of the text formatted slightly differently, it would have worked well. They really need to update this book to redo the graphics so that they are readable on the Kindle.
The recipes contain a lot of specialty ingredients that while easy to find (thanks to the great sites on the Internet) are expensive. I have found that other authors create delicious recipes, made from whole ingredients, that cost <$5 for the entire recipe. (The best one out there is Robin Robertson.)
The quality of the recipes are so-so. I didn't HATE any of them but none were ones I would try again later.
Finally, the substitutions were intriguing but again, you can find some of this info in other cookbooks (like Robin Robertson's "Vegan Planet" or "1,000 Vegan Recipes") or otherwise on the internet.
IMO, this cookbook is fine but not worth the rating it received from Amazon & I think that others can find better cookbooks (one more time - try Robin Robertson!!)
