"Spending time with [Moskowitz's] cheerfully politicized book feels like hanging out with Grace Paley. She and her cooking partner, Terry Hope Romero, are as crude and funny when kibitzing as they are subtle and intuitive when putting together vegan dishes that are full of non-soggy adult tastes. Do look for an excellent roasted fennel and hazelnut salad, bok choy cooked with crispy shallots and sesame seeds, hot and sour soup with wood ears and napa cabbage and a porcini-wild rice soup they say is 'perfect for serving your yuppie friends.'"-New York Times Book Review
"Exuberant and unapologetic, Moskowitz and Romero's recipes don't skimp on fat or flavor, and the eclectic collection of dishes is a testament to the authors' sincere love of cooking and culinary exploration."-Saveur
"[T]his slam-bang effort from vegan chefs Moskowitz and Romero is thorough and robust, making admirable use of every fruit and vegetable under the sun."-Publishers Weekly
"Full of recipes for which even a carnivore would give up a night of meat."-San Francisco Chronicle
"It's no shocker that the very same urban chefs who had you inhaling vegan butter-cream frosting during your free time have crafted the next revolution in neo-vegan cuisine."-Philadelphia City Paper
"Veganomicon not only offers tons of mouth-watering ways to put 'veg' back into your vegan diet with actual produce, but also tutorials that gave me confidence to start improvising on my own."-Bust
"Veganomicon is user-friendly, packed with tips and instructions for a wide range of cooking techniques."-New York Sun
"The Betty Crocker's Cookbook of the vegan world. It's one more step in the quest to prove that vegan food really doesn't taste like cardboard when you know what you're doing."-Bitch
"Seriously good with broad appeal."-Washington Post
"These two very real and very sassy food-obsessed women have put together a cookbook that you wish your mom cooked from when you were growing up. The recipes are seriously delicious and, for the most part, uncomplicated."

Let's take a step back and say that the cookbooks of Isa Chandra Moskowitz, a number of which were co-written with Terry Hope Romero, changed my life. I've been a vegetarian/vegan for a while, and I've owned different of vegetarian/vegan cookbooks, and I've always cooked, but something about Ida and Terry's stuff is on a whole other level. It's like the apex of the form. The book Isa Does It was the first cookbook I owned where I just went through and cooked almost everything, one after another. The results always seemed to range from "Unbelieveably Good" to "Really, Really Good." I love the diversity of the recipes, including curries, nori roles, pies, pizzas, tofu/tempeh/seitan creations, comfort foods to fancy stuff, quick and easy meals to more involved. And the books are charmingly written, the attitude best described as punk, urban, DYI, and funny, and I appreciate that this attitude was never entirely lost/abandoned as time went on and mainstream acceptance must have been a lure. After finding their work, I started cooking a whole lot more, and now I'd say that cooking is a bit of a hobby. If I had the energy, I'd cook every night. Their cookbooks were instrumental in that development.
The new edition is gorgeous. It's a nice, sturdy hardcover without a slip cover. The cover illustration looks great -- an ornate V immersed in various growy green things, all in different shades of green. The front and rear cover is glossy, and the inside pages are of a higher quality than before. The formatting has been changed; in essence, the new edition looks very similar to Isa Does It and The Superfun Times Vegan Holidary Cookbook, which makes sense because the copyright page says that the book was designed by Laura Palese, who, as it turns out, also designed Isa Does It and Superfun Times.
Most recipes now occupy their own page. The recipes themselves are easy to read and are well organized, and include mini-intros, notes, tips, and icons. It looks like some of the recipe's mini-intros have been revised. The Amazon blurb claims that 250 recipes have been revised, and the text now includes 25 new recipes. There's new intros written by both the authors, but it still includes the old one. And there's the addition of photographs, which, frankly, adds a lot. I'm not sure if they were also taken by Vanessa Rees or Joshua Foo, who worked on Isa Does It and Superfun Time (for some reason I couldn't find the photograph attributions in this new edition), but they are similar in style and are beautiful. My only gripe (if you can even call it that), is that I prefer cookbook bindings/spines that are designed to lay flat. Isa Does It has this type of binding/spine, but Superfun Times and the Veganomicon doesn't either. It's nice when you don't have to put a stack of CDs or whatever on the corner to try to keep it down, etc. But the old edition didn't have it either, and it's be no means a deal breaker.
I highly recommend this new edition. If you are new to Ida/Terry and don't have the old edition, this is the one to get of the two. If you have the old edition and are considering getting the new one, do it. It isn't essential to switch, I mean, you will survive just fine with the old one, but the changes are aesthetically and content-lly substantial enough to justify a new purchase, as it feels like an entirely new book.
Some call this The Joy of Vegan Cooking. Well, this essential tome just got even more essential-er.
Overall, very pleased with this book.
