Isa's recipes are so great because they feature foods and flavors that are always appealing: bold, satisfying and crave-worthy. I enjoy superfancy food at superfancy restaurants on occasion, but I have no interest whatsoever in making that kind of food at home -- at least not very often. I want fairly simply food that bursts with flavor, but that's quick and easy to make. The genius in Isa's recipes is how completely approachable they are, regardless of cooking skill. This is food for Real Life.
Isa Does It is not a departure from her other cookbooks, except that this one is much, much prettier. The food photography is sumptuous.
For me, the entire sandwich section is a stand out (the chickpea "tuna" sandwiches are to die for); the curry, burgers and stir fries, too. Last week, like a bad vegan, I ate her rosemary chocolate chip cookies for breakfast (and lived to tell the tale). I love the bowls, which are complete meals unto themselves. I haven't made the Glam Chowder yet, but my mouth waters looking at that photo. Everyday Pad Thai? Yes, please!
This is an especially fantastic cookbook for the novice cook AND for the novice vegan: Isa Does It is FULL of instruction that makes vegan cooking seem accessible and fun -- which it is. This is a must-have for die-hard Isa fans like myself -- those who read her cookbooks like good prose. For me, Isa is the love-child of David Sedaris and Julia Child; her books inspire over-eating and laughter in almost equal measure.
To state the obvious: yes, you should buy this cookbook.
*Yakisoba - quick, easy and a new go-to. Tastes great the next day, too!
*Seitan & Broccoli with Pantry BBQ pulled together quickly and exceeded my taste bud expectations (I used packaged seitan, although I usually make my own).
*Beet Bistro Burger: Nothing makes me happier than finding a new use for beets, and the Bistro Beet burger was not only tasty - but pretty. Yes - aesthetics count.
*The Malai Kofta in Korma sauce is the last nail in the coffin for me in never going out to eat Indian again (and I used to 2-3x/week). Plus, she's considerate enough to ensure there is enough leftover sauce to slather on everything.
*Finally, the Glam Chowder is worth the price of the book alone. Really.
A word on Isa's baking prowess. With the exception that us highlanders living at altitude have to compensate the leavening, (143 million people on the planet live above sea level, but I digress), I can say unequivocally, that Isa's baking recipes give the most consistent end product of any recent vegan cookbook I've encountered. Banana marble loaf. Enuf said.
From the 'retired' graphic designer perspective, the book is beautiful. It is on matte paper, great color theme, and the fonts are whimsical and easy to read! (I'm lookin' at you, Enchanted Broccoli Forest!) Plus, I love her new 'do~
UPDATE: 12/2/2014: A bit over a year later and the love affair continues. Must tries:
* Mediterranean Overnight Scramble (my new breakfast go-to)
* Pad Thai - (Like Isa - if not for complete nutritional breakdown, I could eat this every night)
* Carrot Cake Pancakes (damn glad I'm not diabetic)
* Sticky Chicky Stir Fry ( the vegan's answer to Orange Chicken...supress the urge to reach for a cigarette after eating this...)
* Roasted Butternut Alfredo (can something really be this creamy & decadent tasting using only cashews & butternut squash?)
* Curried Peanut Sauce Bowl
...and the list just keeps growing. It would be safe to say that this is my favorite all-around cookbook.
