Review

The Vegan Table leaves nothing to be desired—Colleen Patrick-Goudreau is the Martha Stewart of the movement!”

—Rory Freedman, author of #1 New York Times bestseller Skinny Bitch



Patrick-Goudreau, Colleen. The Vegan Table: 200 Unforgettable Recipes for Entertaining Every Guest at Every Occasion. Fair Winds: Quayside. Jun. 2009. c.304p. photogs. index. ISBN 978-1-59233-374-5. pap. $19.99. COOKERY

Patrick-Goudreau’s attractive second cookbook (after The Joy of Vegan Baking: The Compassionate Cooks’ Traditional Treats and Sinful Sweets) features seasonal menus for occasions ranging from “Romantic Dinners for Two” to “Feasts for the Holidays.” Her sophisticated but mostly uncomplicated recipes will appeal to nonvegans and vegans alike, and dozens of sidebars offer tips on entertaining, information on ingredients, and more. -- Library Journal, June 2009



“The doyenne of compassionate living has done it again, delivering a beautiful, thoughtful, intelligent book brimming with delectable, cruelty-free recipes and clever entertaining ideas. Colleen Patrick-Goudreau truly is a star in the vegetarian universe.”

VegNews Magazine

—Jennifer McCann, author of Vegan Lunch Box and

Vegan Lunch Box Around the World

Format: Paperback
Like most people I was eager to get my hands on Patrick-Goudreau's second book. One cannot live on sweets alone, and her first book on baking is one of my go-to titles. The Vegan Table is a far more attractive book, full color, beautiful photography, and all the tidbits on vegan food and living we've grown to expect. The recipes I haven't tried look very good, and the ones I have tried turned out well, with the exception of the chocolate espresso ganache cake FAIL. (To be accurate, the cake was delicious, but the topping and glaze were a miserable failure.)

However, I absolutely loathe the organization of this book. As cookbooks go, and I have dozens, I feel it was an experiment gone awry. The book is divided into meals for two, four to six, six to ten, and so on. If I'm interested in finding an entree, I have to flip through five chapters. The chapters are further divided by the four seasons. I appreciate eating seasonally, but this goes too far. At the very least a master list or index of apps, soups, salads, entrees, etc. would have made sense. If I want to make cornmeal-crusted tempeh for just my husband and me, I have to adjust the quantities since it's under "formal dining for six to ten." Granted, one would probably adjust for servings with any cookbook depending on your family size, but this system feels much more complex and unwieldy. I can think of several more effective ways this book could have been organized with respect to seasons and the appropriateness of each recipe for various styles of entertaining. As is is, I find it very difficult to use in the way one normally uses a cookbook. ("I need a main dish with beans," or "what can I do with all this zucchini?

Some background - This past mid-April, my husband and I attended the 5-Day McDougall Program in Santa Rosa, CA. Colleen was there as one of the chefs giving a cooking demo/lesson to help us learn how to cook food for our new healthy diet. My husband has always been an omnivore and swore he would never give up meat (but he was willing to attend the 5-day session with me). I have been what I call a fat 'imperfect vegan' for over 20 years (cheese, butter and oil were my vices). Enter Colleen. She prepared a few dishes out of this new book and passed around servings for us to eat. My hubby said: Babe, if we can eat like this all the time, I'll never miss the meat. And I agreed. We adopted a lowfat vegan diet that week, and have not looked back. I have cooked several of the recipes that Colleen gave us that week (all from the book) and they are all yummy. I have ordered the book because I want more. Colleen, I hope you are reading this: You are a wonderful, witty, talented chef. My husband and I loved your your cooking, and your wonderful sense of humor. Dr McDougall, Mary, Jeff, and Doug helped us adopt this new healthy diet, but you definitely sealed the deal. The 'No-queso Quesadillas' have been our go-to snack when we need a little something-something, now! Since April 15, I have effortlessly lost 15 lbs and my hubby has lost 12. Thank you SO much! We hope to see you again!

I have a pretty big cookbook collection, but this is the first one I've seen that I actually want to try EVERYTHING! Even if you aren't vegan, you will find many delicious additions to your menus here. There are great tips for people new (or even not-so-new) to vegan cooking, and interesting information on subjects like edible flowers, high tea, and what they *really* ate at the first Thanksgiving. I've been looking forward to this book's arrival for a long time, and I agree with another reviewer who said it exceeded expectations. (I've already tried 3 recipes & all were delicious!)

Like many other reviewers on Amazon, I am a cookbook fiend. I often wonder if I like purchasing new cookbooks more than I like actually using them because sometimes I will buy one, and after the initial look-through where I drool over the recipes, it sits on my shelf collecting dust for too long before I finally use it.

This is so not the case with Colleen's first cookbook, "The Joy of Vegan Baking," or thankfully, her newest, "The Vegan Table." "The Vegan Table" is the perfect follow-up to "TJoVB," and every single recipe begs to be made. The recipes are healthy, delicious, and beautiful. Gorgeous photos of MANY of the dishes are scattered throughout the book, which I love because that inspires me that much more to get cooking!

I was lucky enough to be a recipe tester for this book, so in addition to the several recipes I've made since receiving the book this week, I knew I already had some favorites. The Matzoh Ball Soup is perfect, as is the Panini with Lemon-Basil Pesto. The Tempeh Pate melts in your mouth, and the Warm Spinach Salad is amazingly healthful & delicious. I recently impressed company with the Blackberry Pecan Crisp, which took literally less than five minutes to assemble. The Portobello Mushrooms with Herb-Infused Marinade are on the menu for tonight, and I think I'll serve them alongside the Scalloped Potatoes.

Each dish is simple, yet upscale (but that does not mean expensive!). Most things could be served for a simple weeknight dinner, yet they're impressive enough to share with company. I love that Colleen split the book into chapters based not only on the group size (meals to serve from two to ten, and everywhere in-between) - but also by season. The index is also terrific, and makes everything SO easy to find.
