I recently got this revised edition for my dad, who has been a meat eater his entire life. He has cardiovascular problems, and it was recommended to him by his cardiologist that he try a plant based diet. He fell in love with the meals in this book. Eating from here made him realize that he was not necessarily losing meat, but gaining a whole new world of flavor. Since getting this book, he was able to shave several inches off his waist and get off of his cholesterol medicines.
Another friend of mine, a Midwestern girl who loves her dairy, got this book after I cooked for her. She is not vegan, nor does she intend to go vegan, but the recipes here are so universally good that she got it anyway.
My criticism: for those who like spicy foods, some of the recipes are not that spicy. They require augmentation and experimentation. That being the case, the basic plans are solid enough that they can be easily be modified with a pinch of this or that here and there.
The book's layout is also helpful. At the front is a section table of contents, with 20 sections! Each section is fronted by a brief table of contents, with the page being a contrasting color for easy finding when you're flipping through.
Included are explanations of various flours, seeds, nuts, dried fruits, alternatives to egg and dairy, and even nine sea vegetables. At the end is a comprehensive index by ingredient, making it easy to find multiple recipes for whatever food item you want to use.
And if you want just one more cookbook besides this one, I also recommend One-Dish Vegan, also by Robin Robertson.
The first chapter is extremely informative, providing great explanations about vegan foods and tips on how to make your own vegan versions of seitan, baked tofu, and other vegan foods that are often over-processed or too salty when purchased from the grocery store. Much of this information also helps you to save a lot of money, too!
I purchased the Kindle version, and it is beautifully referenced and arranged. All recipes are listed at the beginning of the book, and have plenty of links provide as needed. All recipes start on a new "page" so that your bookmarks are very functional too!
I highly recommend this book - for people curious about vegan eating, for those wanting a great beginners vegan cookbook, and also for long-time vegans looking for a great cookbook. Thanks for another great cookbook, Robin!
I have found most of the ingredients at my regular grocery store with very few requiring trips to my local natural foods store.
The directions are easy to read. Also, there are lots of useful tips on technique and recipes for vegan basics.
Overall, I highly recommend this cookbook.
