Not only is the book filled with incredible recipes, it also has beautiful pictures and nutritional information for each recipe.
I purchased Lindsay's other cookbooks, Happy Herbivore and Everyday Happy Herbivore, shortly after switching to a plant based diet. I would guess that approximately 95% of my meals come from these books. I honestly don't know if I could have stayed with the plant based diet without Lindsay's easy and delicious recipes.
In this book I really enjoyed the different types of cuisine and how they were inspired by something tasted during Lindsay's travels. However what really sold me was the amazing recipe for Date bread/loaf that tasted nearly exactly like my Grandma's (not so healthy) version. Other reviewers have commented that some of the recipes seem too simplistic but I think it is more of a new twist on something we are already familiar with. I had a couple of 'Oh man, why didn't I think of that' moments too but the Happy herbivore did and for that I am grateful. Looking forward to the next title! No Pressure....lol!
That said, it is worth mentioning that this book is not like the other books in the HH family. I am not sure that this would be the book I would recommend for someone trying to get into plant-based, low-fat living. While all of the recipes are simple and made with accessible, whole-food ingredients, I think that the original Happy Herbivore Cookbook or the Everyday Happy Herbivore Cookbook is more appropriate for those who are new to plant-based cooking/eating. In those books, many of the basics are covered and provide a solid base for branching out to more exotic recipes.
What I like:
-It is a more personal book than the others of the HH family, which I appreciated as someone who has traveled to some of the destinations referenced in HHA. I have spent a lot of time in Central/East Europe, for example, and I have never been able to enjoy a proper Hungarian Goulash. HHA solves that. I have often tried to re-create some of my East European favorites but have been met with limited success. The European recipes in the book are spot-on!
-there are some fancy recipes--like things that I would make for a dinner party--that are made with affordable, easy-to-find items.
-the photos are gorgeous. Very visually-appealing.
-I think this book has the potential to de-mystify some international cuisine. Curries and French dishes can be intimidating! I am pretty fearless in the kitchen, but I would not have attempted to come up with my own low-fat curry like the one in this book. Things that I would order from a takeout menu are in this book at a much lower cost (both in terms of money and calories!) and probably take about as much time to make as it does to wait on a delivery.
What I do not like:
I would have liked some more breakfast and baked goods. I do not think their absence detracts from the quality of the book and I realize that there are only so many ways to make a tofu scramble and there are plenty of ideas in other HH books, but I found myself going back to HHC/EHH for breakfast ideas this weekend after feeling uninspired by the HHA book.
All of this said, I have tried the following recipes:
-German Lentil Soup
-Swedish Split Pea Soup
-Tinto de Verano
The biggest hits were the donuts, bread pudding and the pineapple curry, but they were all delicious. The African Jollof is great cold over mixed greens--we did that for a road trip and it worked out well.
In sum, this book is the perfect complement to and logical progression of the HH offerings. I think this is just the beginning for the Happy Herbivore. I suspect that bigger, better things are coming and I look forward to seeing Lindsay Nixon's continued success! Very well done!
