In an age that is loaded with books on vegan cooking, how to become vegan, what not to eat, and advice for the new vegan, V is for Vegan comes to us with a straightforward tactic: here’s some food. Cook it. Eat it. It’s vegan. It’s good.
The author, Kerstin Rodgers, has created a book that anyone can enjoy. Looking over the recipes it is obvious that almost anyone can create this food (13 things on Toast is probably my favorite). Rodgers even explains what you need to have in your pantry to cook the recipes in this book.
Rodgers has been writing about food for quite a while over on Ms. Marmite Lover. She is also the instigator of The Secret Garden Supper Club in the UK, teaches many classes, and enjoys traveling. She has won numerous awards for her writing.
I did enjoy the recipes in this book. As someone who creates recipes myself, it’s a pleasure when I can follow along and be successful. The layout of the book is fun and playful with dual colored pages. One teensy, tiny complaint: many of the photos are dark or “busy.” This seems to be the way of producing recipe photos these days. Just thought I’d make a note of it.
The book is laid out in sections, so if you want to look up snacks (my favorite), or dinner recipes, just turn to those sections. I can’t imagine not wanting to make any of this food. I was drooling a little while skimming these tasty items. There’s even tacos! Tacos in the UK!
