I’ve been a vegan for almost six years, and in that time I’ve amassed a rather large collection of plant based cookbooks.
And some of them feel very samey, filled with very similar main courses and sides. Some are overly fancy with complex dishes of expensive ingredients I’ve never even heard of....

O.M.G. I should have known, after using Veganomicon for a couple of years, that the cookbook that launched Isa Chandra Moskowitz was bound to be a keeper. Isa credits Terry Hope Romero with the Chili Sin Carne recipe that ROCKS with its own calypso band on days 2 and 3. Make it a day early if you...

I've been cooking out of VWAV for several years now; it's about time I write a review for it.
If you are new to vegan cooking, or looking for a basic place to start wooing a vegan date, this is a solid, dependable book to start with. While I love Isa's newer book (veganomicon) a lot more, I have...

Very good, but necessarily recommended for those exploring/dabbling in a plant based diet.
I'm a huge fan of Isa's recipes. Though I have only made a few from this cookbook so far, I have made several from Appetite for Reduction: Fast and Filling Low-Fat Vegan Meals and Veganomicon: The Ultimate V...

I love this book with all my heart. There is not one meal that I have made that hasn't been delicious; the fact that my incredibly carnivorous and generally unhealthy food devouring family is duly impressed with each new dish is amazing.
I appreciate the simple yet malleable nature of most of the...

As a professed hater of vegetables, it's nothing short of amazing that I even picked up a vegan cookbook, let alone gave it 5 stars. I don't consider myself a vegan, in fact, I love meat. But I do hate tortured animals and chemical additives, so I thought I'd give it a try. I've made about 8 of t...

It doesn't quite feel right only giving this book five stars. It was more than a cookbook, it was an education. Isa's prediction from her introduction absolutely came true for me:
"A cookbook isn't just light beach reading; it becomes part of your life. In a few month's time it will be scribbled w...

This is a reread for me. I got my first copy when it came out in 2005. It was the first cookbook I bought for myself and the first one I read that felt like it was for me. It was a little edgy with a do your own thing, punk rock, love life kind of vibe. It was a good jumping off point. Techniques...

As much as I love the PPK, the main course recipes in this cookbook are not exactly ideal for someone who doesn't have a lot of time or a big budget. The different tofu marinades and crusts alone call for way more ingredients and time than I can afford. The few main courses I have tried are good,...

I received this last year for xxx-mas from melissa. (yeah?) Seriously, Isa does a good job about telling a story and making it interesting, but her flavor profiles are off. I KNOW that being a good cook doesn't mean following a recipe, but sometimes when it says "This is really good and yadda yad...
