Written with sass, style, and a sense of humor. More than just a cookbook. . . .
The authors genuinely seem to be having a wonderful time as they share recipes, anedotes and advice for cooking, baking and even making your own beauty products.
Reader Review Vegetarian Times (Vegetarian Times)
Fun, educational, accessible and tasty!
Impact Magazine (Impact Magazine)
The vegetarian cookbook industry seems to be in the permanent grip of New Age hippies and Hare Krishnas. Anyone turned off by such associations should seek out How It All Vegan! by two Canadians, Tanya Barnard and Sarah Kramer. Refreshingly, they do not discuss chakras, or offer instructions on how to become a practising druid. Barnard and Kramer adopt a down-to-earth approach, and focus on everyday meals someone might actually eat. The clarity and simplicity is no doubt why How It All Vegan! has won several awards and begotten two sequels. Much like Singer and Scully, Barnard and Kramer remind us there are ways to save animals that do not require breaking into cars.

I wouldn't say this is a cookbook for beginners because some of the recipes contain modifications that make them more complicated than normal (such as the miso soup), but motivated beginners could easily handle most of the recipes.
My main complaint is that some of the recipes require many different ingredients but use only a little of each, so you have to figure out what to do with the excess. It should also be noted that some of the recipes use "vegan" cheese, which never tastes like the real thing, or even very good for that matter. I've mostly tried the quicker recipes in the book and had a few I didn't like (Thai tea, which didn't taste like the real thing, and Tanya's Asian Creation, which my husband didn't like). On the other hand, there are some excellent recipes as well. Many of them I feel are for people who have a lot of time to cook, as the baking section is fairly large, and many require a blender or food processor. Overall I really like this book and think that I will find more good recipes as I get the chance to try more.
- Most importantly - it's not a lecture for 200 pages on why I should eat vegan. There's a bit at the beginning describing why they've gone vegan, but that's about it.
- We've made several recipes and all were great. I was happy to see reasonable substitutions in there, and not stuff I'd have to search for decades at every little store in town to find the right stuff.
- Most recipes are made using food you can find at a regular grocery store. I appreciate that it's pretty value conscious, as I've seen other books that demand nothing but exotic (read, expensive) ingredients.
- None in this case. An excellent first vegan cookbook with real recipes I can use.
This cookbook is set up okay, I wish the bottom of the pages had what chapter you were in written on them though. I am not looking at my book right now, but i don't remember it having any pictures of completed recipes, in colour nor black and white. I find the font used is supposed to be "fun" but it is difficult to read and annoys me. The recipes are plain, good for new cooks or new vegans or new vegan cooks, but to someone with previous cooking and food knowledge I find this cookbook boring and plain and I end up leafing through it and then using a different one/googling a recipe.
I think there are other vegan cookbooks out there that are filled with just as simple to execute recipes, but that are a little more fun for your taste buds and nicer/cleaner to look at.

The style is easy going and friendly, like curling up in a comfy chair with a friend.
The Apple-cinnamon cornmeal pancakes alone were worth the price, even non-vegan friends gobbled them down.
I truly appreciate it.
