About the Author
Gaz Oakley is an exciting young chef who has worked his way up through professional kitchens from his teenage years. Wanting a healthier lifestyle, he decided to change his diet and go vegan. He took up the challenge of finding ways to make his food vibrant and tasty and the results were so impressive that he developed the Avant-Garde Vegan brand to showcase his recipes on Instagram and his vegan YouTube channel.

Not vegan? Serve your fleshy bits on the side on the side if you must, but you'll never miss them with these recipes. Oakley's approach to vegetables seems different than most other chefs and it shows in this cookbook. So much flavor! And the dishes are really beautiful to look at, so they will entice even the most ardent of veggie-haters. There are a few things to be aware of when you use this cookbook, but it's otherwise a perfect intro to veg newbies, the perfect accompaniment to any non-veg food, or a breath of fresh air to old school vegans.
Oakley is an English chef, so you may see some references that may seem unfamiliar. The 'look inside' feature above shows how the text is laid out in the UK version, it hasn't been converted any further. Aubergines are eggplants, courgettes are zucchini, and yes, they really do eat baked beans for breakfast on the other side of the pond. However, you will be in familiar territory once you figure this out. None of the recipe call for hard to find ingredients.
Most of the recipes are created completely from scratch. They may use a lot of ingredients, but that's how you build flavor. A long list doesn't mean difficult, most of the recipes are easy to put together without special techniques or equipment. You don't have to make your Ultimate Breakfast seitan sausages from scratch, but Oakley will teach you how if you are more adventurous. Otherwise, pick up a package of Field Roast sausages and continue with the recipe.
I have made several recipes in this cookbook because Oakley dripped a few in advance via his blog and videos. A few more are in the "look inside" feature on Amazon. I've had good luck with everything so far and I've marked many more pages with recipes I intend to make.
I LOVE the eggplant bacon, and I'm not the only one. Mom has Alzheimer's and she craves bolder flavors as she loses her ability to taste the same way. I've made the bacon for her a few times. Nothing we have tried has been bland, so we are both happy.
I made the Sriracha Meatballs and my three teenage granddaughters went nuts over them! I didn't tell them they contained smashed tofu until they finished eating. They assumed it was some kind of cheese. They agreed to try more tofu dishes in the future since it didn't kill them.
I made Paprika Baked Beans that calls for canned haricot beans. I've never seen beans called haricot here, but a little research found them to be white navy beans. Easy to find. I used Muir Glen fire roasted chopped tomatoes instead of plain, along with the other ingredients of shallots, garlic, smoked paprika, and a few other tasty bits. It was easy to make and was so good!! I didn't serve it for breakfast, but it would be tempting to start the day out with so much flavor. The beans have a fresher flavor than the baked beans most of us are used to.
I could really go on about this cookbook, but this is a review and not a book. I've made quite a few of his recipes that are not in this book as well, always with good luck. I preordered this book last July as soon as I heard about it, and it's everything I hoped it would be. I hope there will be another one!
Please come out with an ebook. I travel a lot since I'm retired & I want this cookbook with me during my visits with family & friends. Ebook is the best way for me to do this.
Great job Gaz! Can't wait to start cooking.
