Happy Cooking and Bon Appetit! Have any other recommendations? Glad to know someone shares my feelings on this topic. Sweets were particularly frustrating as it was almost impossible to find something without several processed ingredients that I would have to substitute out to keep my dignity. Who puts fake yogurt in a blondie recipe, and must everything be made with silken tofu?!
I eventually found myself eyeing non-vegan cookbooks almost exclusively at the bookstore and the library, always feeling somewhat guilty holding, say, a middle eastern cookbook with a lamb shank on the cover. But the wealth of vegan or almost recipes within — traditional, straightforward recipes based on legumes and fresh vegetables, without weird things like TVP or soy mayo, in my opinion, is worth it.
Coincidentally, I also just recently came across the Kansha cookbook and it is definitely on my wish list. The established vegan-written cookbooks get most of their attention. This cookbook, written by an expert on Japanese culture who happens to be writing this time on vegan traditions in Japan, previously wrote a more comprehensive book of Japanese cuisine I just flipped through it in google books and while there are no recipes in the preview, the photography and details on Japanese pantry staples are a delight.
Though I do adore and often prefer the food of people whose skin is a range of pigments darker than mine, I do think there are plenty of fair-skinned cultures with even if just a few delicious and animal-free food traditions. And most other European countries contribute at least a handful of lovely foods. Thanks for reinforcing my desire to get the book. Your blog just showed up on my tag surfer. Thank you baby jesus! Awesome, Awesome food blog. Not a vegan but great food is great food. Heya Jen!
Yeah—definitely check out the Bloodroot books! More to come!
Hello Marta! Yes, the silken tofu!
Yep, totally agree with you about the cookbook thing—I subscribe to a bunch of food magazines, and as horrible as it is to get those November turkey covers, they blow Veg News, etc, out of the water. You sound like a racist.
Yet you use a native language word for your name to comment. Cultural appropriation, perhaps? Of course I remember you!! Yay for another Andoh fan! Oh cool!!! Thanks for the tip. Ah, Albuquerque! My driveway is covered with ice as we speak…. Thank you for reading my mind and telling it like it is about the storm of vegan cookbooks hitting the markets.
I stopped buying them right after macrobiotic culinary school where I learned how to not eat crap. So many vegans are thrilled that they can now eat and have access to vegan junk food crap. And more and more authors with no nutrition knowledge continue to push this junk in cookbooks and people continue to eat it, while their health continues to decline. I went vegetarian because of chest pains I got when I ate meat.
How good is this cookbook for beginners? I am so happy that I read this today! You need help because you are a twisted, self-hating White person.
I love it. I love them like I love my aunts and uncles. The recipes feel out dated but they are super healthy and emphasize whole foods cooking, unlike lots of newer vegan recipe books which teach you how to make trash. It is, however, supremely elitist. It reminds me of a white friend of mine who only hangs out with brown poor people and talks trash about white hippies who are snobby.
