I really loved this cookbook! It took me more than a week to write down all of the recipes I wanted, but now I have tons for my transition into veganism! I appreciate that most of the recipes rely on vegetables, while only about 35% are based on tofu, seitan, or tempeh. The only recipe I have made so far is the cheater baked beans and they are FANTASTIC! I highly recommend the book!

My favorite cookbook-vegan or not. The recipes are easy, accessible, and AWESOME!!! I've cooked many a recipe for veggies, and non veggies and have gotten nothing but rave reviews! Honestly, the whole book is perfect.

This book helped me tremendously when I first became vegan. It is filled with a lot of very good information. My only criticism is that there are too many specialty ingredients and recipes are too complicated or time-consuming. I like to cook simple and healthy foods with out a lot of fuss. I still recommend reading the information in this book to anyone who wants to begin a plant-based diet. I have used their ideas to create dishes of my own.

I was given this book as a birthday present. Though there are some interesting and fairly tasty recipes inside, I found a lot of things required pricey ingredients that I would not use on a regularly basis. I gave the book away.

Hardback, wide pages, so it is easy to cook from. Lots of classic makeovers.

This cookbook is firmly positioned as one of my favourite vegan cookbooks of all time. With more than 250 recipes, it really is the "ultimate vegan cookbook." It's accessible yet sophisticated, and full of recipes that will impress vegans and non-vegans alike -- some complex dishes for fancier get-togethers, but lots of comfort food too. Favourite recipe so far: the cauliflower and mushroom potpie with olive crust. Delicious!

I bought this book as a newbie vegan and it has been under heavy-use ever since. I find the instructions accessible, the majority of the ingredients readily available in downtown Ottawa at Hartman's with a few trips to the local health food store. Overall I would highly recommend it for anyone looking to learn more about vegan cooking.

It is a BIG vegan cook book. It contains from savory sauces and flaky potpies to lustrous pastas and fabulous finger foods. Also has recipes for nourishing soups and delicious salads. NOBODY in this household liked any recipes (just after one read).

Would reccommend this cookbook to the seasoned cook, but not to a vegan rookie. Many of the ingredients are obscure or hard to find, and the number of ingredients required for many recipes is quite intimidating.
