Review

No more healthy food that tastes like sawdust; with these dishes, Sarah has managed to make vegan food fun, tasty, and sexy! What more could a hedonist like me ask for?
―Jane Wiedlin, The Go-Go's (Jane Wiedlin 2008-07-01)

Vegans who are this much fun could make Ted Nugent into a convert. More Sarah for everyone!!
―Shoshana, The Monkey Bunch (Shoshana 2008-07-01)

With Kramer’s latest book, Vegan a Go-Go, we connect with the punk princess of meatlessness once again. This new set of recipes, is collected into a mini-tome so tiny it's no bigger than a change purse. And for practical purpose, because as a “survival manual for vegans on the road”, it's designed to be easily tucked into a purse, suitcase, car glove compartment, or even a passport folder. We love the spunky graphic look to it.
City Food (Vancouver) (City Food 2008-09-15)

Sarah's food and travel manifesto, Vegan a Go-Go!, will surely bring devotees to their knees: Kramer's lovable personality, to-die-for recipes, and campy, retro-style photography ooze from the adorable pocket-sized book.
VegNews (VegNews 2008-10-23)

With an awesome 150 recipes, Vegan a Go-Go is meant to fit in the backpack of the herbivore on the road.... If you love to cook, this is definitely a book you’ll want to check out!
Shamelessmag.com (Shamelessmag.com 2008-10-29)

This pocket-size cookbook is a useful resource whether your family is vegan or just looking for easy ways to eat healthy while you're away from home. It's full of helpful travel tips and delicious veggie-packed recipes (like Pun-kin Pasta and Nutty Broccoli) you can prepare without much fuss in the kitchen where you're staying.
Scholastic Parent & Child (Scholastic Parent & Child 2008-11-05)

Kramer's book is a fun little book--about the size of a passport--sporting a retro look, snappy, fun writing, and lush-sounding recipes.
Monday Magazine (Monday Magazine 2008-11-20)

I got a little more than I expected when I opened Sarah Kramer's pocket-sized travel guide, Vegan a Go-Go. Sure, it has the usual Kramerish type recipes, but it also has a wealth of plain old reading material. I loved the stories of Kramer as a child traveling with theater parents. I also appreciated the tales of Sarah as a young adult just learning about the world and the troubles that ensued. And I found it interesting how both of these experiences shaped her later adventures.
VegFamily (VegFamily 2008-12-11)

Kramer shows off her glam-punk style throughout the book and takes an informal, heart-felt approach to her writing.... [Her] recipes are approachable and fun.
The Kitchn.com (The Kitchn 2009-04-21)

Snacks like Righteous Orbs and Chocolate Nut Energy Bars are the perfect pick-me-up for foodies traveling by train, plane, car or foot and on a budget.
E: The Environmental Magazine (E: The Environmental Magazine 2009-05-02)

This is much more than a traveller's cookbook; there are plenty of good travel tips that cover much more than food choices.
North Shore News (North Vancouver, BC) (North Shore News 2009-12-14)

Look, no one loves Sarah Kramer more than I do. I think she's terrific and I have her other books.
There are two HUGE problems with this teeny tiny book.
1. It's useless as a true vegan travel tool. Virtually every recipe would be just too involved to create on the road. And the information is too thin to make a book out of. That's why it was produced in a mini book format. Yes, you could pack it but you'd never look at it.
2. Most of the recipes are a rehash. Just in a tiny format.
So if you have a very simple Kramer recipe you really like. Just bring a copy of it with you on your next trip. It will take up even less space than this tiny useless book.

I really didn't expect to like this cook book as much as I do! I bought it for a trip to Denmark. Many of the ingredients were not available there (or were extremely expensive), but those we made were really good. We did try some substitutions that turned out well. As for a travel cook book it is most useful to people traveling to other people's homes because one really needs a well stocked kitchen and electricity! It wouldn't work for someone traveling in hotels or camping. The biggest surprise for me is that this has become my go-to cookbook at home. So far, the recipes I've tried are good, most are quite simple, and the best part is that I can throw the book in my purse, pick a recipe during the day, and stop at the grocery store on the way home from work and pick up the ingredients. And I figure, since it's usually sitting in the basket with my groceries, it's a good advertisement for veganism.

Sarah Kramer's Vegan A Go-Go is so darn cute you might want to just coo over it instead of reading it. This would be a mistake, because it is a lifesaver! It's full of travel tips, cute photos, and Sarah's classic recipes.

Traveling when you're vegan can be very difficult. Often, you're in a place you don't know, and you don't always know where you can eat (unless you get a plain salad, yuck!). Sarah makes it easy by giving travel tips for tons of situations and destinations, and so many of her recipes are quick and easy and sometimes things you can cobble together on the fly.

Sarah's saved my sanity years ago. I went to my then boyfriend's house for thanksgiving. It's in another state. His family didn't approve of or understand my vegan ways, and there was little to nothing I could eat. At that time, I traveled with How It All Vegan, and I could make some food at home, and her cute photos and stories helped me keep my good humor. Now I can have that same traveling comfort in a pocket sized portion! :>

This is the tiniest Kramer book, but it's also the sweetest. The color photos, icons, places for notes.... All I can say is Sarah, thank you for being you and making it that much easier for the rest of us vegans to be who we are.

P.S. If you haven't bought one of Sarah's previous books (and Tayna for the first two) then Sarah's recipes are quick, easy, can be made with ingredients on hand, and are nutritious. This book is a lot like its author... it's cute, but it has substance!

Don't be surprised by it's diminutive stature when it arrives, this little book packs a big wallop!
Sarah shares her own travel adventure stories (both good and bad) and great travel tips. The book's size (about the dimensions of a passport, but thicker) is perfect for taking along on trips. It includes recipes for snacks and meals to take on the road. Also there are new recipes and favorites from previous books that you will have on hand to make for friends and relatives while you are visiting. If you've got really good friends, maybe they'll cook them for you!
A great vegan resource.

I keep this little book in my purse at all times so when I get to the grocery store unprepared I can just pull it out, pick a few dinners and grab all the ingredients! It's great for those days when I didn't plan ahead. I have all of Sarah's cookbooks and I love them! This one is mostly a compilation of the other 3 books, with a few brand new recipes. Everything in here can easily be made while away from home if you have access to a stove, a couple of pots and a knife. Most of the recipes don't have any real special ingredients, so if you are in "meatville" as she calls it, you should still be able to find what you need to prepare a good vegan meal. If you are staying in a tent or a small hotel it won't be much help to you, obviously (unless you're buying it to keep it in your purse like I do! :) But if you like to cook and are staying in a condo or at a family or friend's house, this is a great little cook book to take a long, and with the price on Amazon, it's a bargain.

Vegan a Go-Go, written by Sarah Kramer, is a great little (literally pocket-sized) book that was printed in 2008 and its content is designed for helping vegans to figure out ways to eat very well, during travel. The book has some useful information but the publishing format just doesn't bode well for being able to read and enjoy. I don't know why the print is SOOOOOO small when so much of each page's margins are blank and unused. And rather than helpful photos (this is a food book!) there are simple, repetitive images of 'travel stamps' and old-fashioned locomotives. In fact, there are NO pictures of food in this cookbook!

With quirky admonishments to "WEAR CLEAN UNDERWEAR" and a photo of a galactic girl with a space gun (for the chapter heading "Dips and Spreads") urging "Ask for directions" (???!!!)... there are also (thank goodness!!! come on, now!) advice blurbs as well, such as, "Pale is the new tan." The tone of the book is 'your best girlfriend or older sister 'advice style.' There are travel tips on packing, good safety tips and advice on vegan food choices abroad. Airline and cruise (ship) tips are also included. There is an index, but the print is perhaps a 5 point font.

There are lots of recipes and most of them are quite simple. Often there is a single recipe to a page (again in the super tiny print with all the white margins). I think the best thing the book does is to remind a traveling vegan what her options are when so many other issues and thoughts may be clouding the brain. For this reason, the book is solidly helpful. The book has a loving, conversational, fun tone to it and if it weren't for the insanely small print and wasted white space, I would recommend this book to almost anyone.
