Food 52 Vegan is one of the great new releases from the popular foodie website Food52.com. Staff "New Veganism" columnist and author Gena Hamshaw's refreshing approach does not push the vegan lifestyle as defined by the rejection of certain foods. Instead, she genuinely celebrates the bright, flavorful and textural delights of her selections, which also happen to be very good for you! 6 Chapters cover Breakfast; Appetizers & Snacks; Soups; Salads; Main Dishes; and Desserts. Over 60 recipes are clearly written in the standard format, and quality, natural photography can be seen with most every turn of the page. The instruction is clear, descriptive and achievable for beginner to intermediate cooks, and most recipes are sized for 4-6 portions. Some of the delicious recipes include Date-Nut Bread, Parsnip Fries with Spicy Harissa Mayonnaise, Corn Chowder with Chive Oil, French Lentil and Arugula Salad with Herbed Cashew Cheese, Roasted Ratatouille, and Chocolate cake with Chocolate Filling and Ganache. Food 52 Vegan is a fine cookbook for the Vegan lifestyle, and for those omnivores who want to learn more and experiment with the vegan dishes.
