Ordering new cookbooks - poll
Amazon has Veganomicon for $16.50 right now (40% off). I am going to buy it this week but want to get free shipping so I need to buy another book to make my order total $25. Please vote for your 2 favorite books! I am even thinking about ordering Vegan Express even though it is not out yet because I have read good things about it. I really want books I am going to use though, not sit on the shelf and collect dust. Thanks for voting! ;D
Although not strictly vegan, I've also just purchased a book by Madhar Jaffries (sp?) of veggie recipes from around the world, which is an A-Z of of fabulous veggies.
Kikoloa - you should post your favorite recipes from that in the NonVegan Cookbook Club:
Quintess - I hate when cookbooks say things like "this recipe only takes 15 minutes!" but then the ingredient list has "chopped carrots, diced onions, de-veined kale." That's cheating! It's like when a 2-bedroom apartment with a large closet is listed as 3-bedroom >:(
OK....shameless plug, but I have been slaving over my own cookbook for the past year, and it is FINALLY about 95% done! It should be ready by early spring. Over 200 delectable, tried and true vegan yummy recipes.
Aside from my recipes, I don't have a favorite cookbook, although I have heard Veganomicon is quite good.
Anyone have any tips on things you all would like to see in a cookbook that you haven't seen before????
If so, let me know before I am finished....
That's so cool! Congrats!
Umm, I really like when recipes have an "approximate prep time". Like, when I look through a cookbook for inspiration, I look at a recipe name, look at ingredients, then see *about* how long the whole thing'll take. I hatehatehate having to read through all of the directions to figure out the timing.
good call TKitty!
Excellent suggestions!! Thanks, everyone!
"Vegetarian Meat and Potatoes"(Robin Robertson) and Mediterranean Vegan Kitchen (Donna Klein) for "regular" food (non cupcake and not super "ethnic")
I love Bryanna Clark Grogan and Dreena Burton--- I would go with their books before anyone else's and then build from there with other ones like VWAV, etc....
