Praise for Vegan 101:
Vegan food at its best! Jenny and Heather were making great vegan food way before it was trendy. In this book they help even those of us who are challenged in the kitchen make something delicious. And that's no easy feat. –Sara Gilbert, Actress and Producer
Vegan 101 is the perfect starter guide for the new vegan as well as a great cookbook for inexperienced and advanced cooks alike. The beautiful pictures inspire even a vegan non-cook like me to pick up a frying pan and get cooking!–Dr. Jenn Mann, TV Personality, Celebrity Therapist, Entrepreneur
Oh la la, that French pistou soup beats the best on the French Riviera! And the desserts! Not only are the dishes in Vegan 101 so impressive that they rock the kitchen, they are easy-peasy to prepare, even for a big eater but cooking dunce like me! –Ingrid Newkirk, President of PETA
I love the women of Spork Foods for providing delicious and easy to make yummy vegan recipes! Sometimes people are scared to try vegan, let alone try cooking vegan. So the fact that these recipes can fulfill great taste and don't require too much time in the kitchen is always something to look forward to! –Krystal Bee, on-air personality for The Cruz Show on Power106
Praise for Spork Foods from Heather & Jenny’s Students:
Jenny and Heather are the Car Talk of vegan cooking. You spend the entire class laughing, and on the way out are amazed to realize how much you’ve learned. ―Asher B.
Heather and Jenny are creative geniuses in the kitchen. Every one of their recipes that I have made has been easily executed and left my non-vegan diners wanting more. They are educators, entertainers, and chefs who make you feel like part of their family. ―Jenn K.
Heather and Jenny make every class so accessible, fun, and delicious that I forget that I was once totally intimidated by the concept of vegan cooking. ―Jim H.
The classes are peppered with intelligent facts and fun, useful techniques to make your journey into plant-based food as seamless as possible. I've been telling my patients that cooking with Spork exceeded my expectations about learning how to combine common ingredients to create unexpected and highly fulfilling meals. ―Aydin B.
Jenny and Heather’s classes are the tipping point to you accidentally converting your whole family to plant-based food. ―Cole M.

For my first Vegan 101 recipe, Velvety Kale Soup, I decided to go super healthy to see if the final result was equally yummy. Packed full of kale and spinach, I had my doubts, but the soup was beyond delicious. Finally a way I can actually eat kale!
I also love how the first recipe of each section provides multiple variations of the recipe because 1) If you don't dig Velvety Kale Soup you can make Creamy Butternut Squash Soup and 2) The multiple variations helps me learn the overall recipe better for making faster in the future.
So far I've made 5 different dishes, and I can't wait to dive in more. The ideas and recipes are super clever and varied for so many occasions. Vegan 101 is definitely becoming my go-to cookbook. Thank you Spork Foods - Heather & Jenny!
I think the title of Vegan 101 is very misleading. If you are new to cooking in general, this is probably not the way to go. Recipes also have a lot of ingredients, and not all are cheap or easily accessible (at least in my area). You'd have to order online - so plan ahead if you do decide to purchase.
I'd like to think people are not only switching to a vegan lifestyle to be healthy, but to save animals as well, and I think if you make these recipes for meat loving friends, you would not impress anyone - the best reaction I have received is "these are OK."
Over all - I'd save your money, and Google some recipes. It is very easy to convert delicious and free recipes to vegan.
