Curled Up with a Good Book
“Packed with helpful advice and enticing recipes to spark an adventure in international vegan cuisine…Vegan Eats World not only makes vegan cooking enticing, it makes international cuisine accessible to vegans with its easy-to-follow recipes. Highly recommended.”

VegNews.com, 2/21/12

VegNews, May/June 2012
“Tokyo-inspired fusion hot dogs will be the unchallenged hit of every summer barbecue.”

“A great vegan cookbook that draws recipes from a truly international repertoire. It is a beautiful, large-format, nicely produced book…[with] well-written recipes.”

InfoDad.com, 11/21/12
“A handsomely made hardcover…Vegan cooks will be familiar with virtually all the ingredients here, but newcomers to the field may have some difficulty with certain recipes—so it is very helpful that Romero includes a graphic for dishes that are especially easy to prepare…Full-page pictures make the dishes look very tempting indeed and add to the impression that Vegan Eats World is as much a gift book as a traditional cookbook.  Vegans on your gift list will find it a treat.”  



“Ideal for use in the kitchen by any vegan (or non-vegan) looking for a large variety of dishes for all occasions and for more yummy ways to please their taste buds…This delightful book is an ideal gift for people (including for themselves) who love variety and a broad range in their culinary lives, even if they are not vegans…Whether it is breakfast, lunch, snack, dinner or dessert ideas you are looking for to break the monotony of cooking the same old foods, this valuable book can help you immeasurably, finding the ideal dish to satisfy the palate…a great resource for the home-based cook as well as professional chef…Wonderful.”

Lemuria Books (blog), 10/21/12
“It looks just as delightful as Veganomicon, and I can't wait to try out some of the delicious recipes for curries, soups and dumplings, especially since the fall weather is starting to encourage higher comfort food consumption.”

It features a range of full-flavored recipes, from kimchi to Thai coconut curry. The book's diverse Asian offerings are particularly outstanding, as the recipes naturally lend themselves to vegan cooking. You'll find classics that you recognize from your local international eateries, as well as new offerings that you haven't tried before. This is exceptionally good food for vegans, vegetarians, and the rest of us who are trying to eat a more sustainable, healthy, plant-based diet.”

Christian Science Monitor, 11/20/12
Named one of the “23 of the best new and upcoming cookbooks/food books for the holidays”

Présentation de l'éditeur

What If the World Was Vegan?
The true building blocks of cuisines across the planet are the spices, herbs, and grains—from basmati rice to buckwheat, coconut to caraway seeds. Apply those flavors to vegan staples such as seitan, or tofu and even straight-up vegetables, and the possibilities? If not endless, pretty darned expansive.
So what if the world was vegan? Your own cooking is the answer to that question; fire up the stove and make a green curry, simmer a seitan date tagine stew, or hold a freshly made corn tortilla piled high with chile-braised jackfruit in your hand. Chart your course in the great, growing map of vegan food history.
 
Award-winning chef, author of Veganomicon, and author of Viva Vegan Terry Hope Romero continues the vegan food revolution with more than 300 bold, delicious recipes based on international favorites. With chapters devoted to essential basics such as Spice Blends; The Three Protein Amigos; and Pickles, Chutneys & Saucier Sauces, you can make everything from salads to curries, dumplings and desserts. Vegan Eats World will help you map your way through a culinary world tour, whether you want to create a piergoi party or Thai feast, easy Indian chaat lunch or Your International House of Dinner Crepes.

After cooking almost exclusively out of this book for a week now, I feel confident saying that this was an A+ delicious purchasing decision, and you should probably own it too. It's a beautiful hardcover book, filled with great photos that make it pretty hard not to eat the pages.

The first part of the book gives general cooking advice, kitchen and pantry stocking tips, and information on some of the ethnic ingredients used throughout the recipes.

The second part of the book contains the recipes, organized by chapter:

Spice Blends
The Three Protein Amigos: Tofu, Seitan, & Tempeh
Pickles, Chutneys, and Saucier Sauces
Salads, Spreads, and Sandwiches
Soups
Curries, Hearty Stews, and Beans
Dumplings, Breads, and Pancakes
Asian Noodles to Mediterranean Pasta
Hearty Entrees
Robust Vegetable Entrees and Sides
Rice & Whole Grains: One Pot Meals & Supporting Roles
Sweet Beginnings

The book also contains a well-organized index, planned menus, and organization by icons, indicating that recipes are low fat, gluten-free, soy-free, take under 45 minutes, are good for beginners, are cheap to make, or are mostly inactive. Terry does a great job of providing recipes that can be made on weeknights after work, as well as more labor-intensive recipes that are guaranteed to impress.

This week, I cooked the smokey seitan and cabbage variation of the Sauerkraut Mushroom Soup (Shchi), Sweet and Savory Jackfruit Carnitas Tacos, and Chipotle Tofu Cemita Sandwiches. I also cooked a big Ethiopian spread for friends, which included the Ethiopian Savory Crepes (Injera Style), Saucy Berbere Lentils, Seitan Tibs Simmered in Berbere in Wine (substituting mushrooms), Collards in Berbere Sauce, and Fluffy Scrambled Chickpea "Eggs" with Shallots (But'echa). The collards are actually one of almost any possible vegetable variations on a cauliflower and green bean dish. My husband and I loved everything I cooked, but our friends raved about the Ethiopian, and we thought it was pretty amazing and very authentic-tasting for a Southern white lady's kitchen.

I would say the majority of these recipes can be made with an intermediate vegan cook's current pantry. However, for the sake of authenticity, the ingredient lists do contain many items that may require a trip to an ethnic market or an online purchase, and Terry offers some recommendations of where to shop on the Internet for those specialty items.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Diverse, inspiring, yet simple! 11 mai 2013
Par J. Murszewski - Publié sur Amazon.com

I am not easily highly impressed with many vegan cookbooks. It takes me a while to warm up to them it seems. I have to say though that this one is truly exceptional. I am such a fan of experimenting with different flavors and textures. I had purchased a couple other vegan cookbooks that feature international fare and the problem I ran into with them is that you'd instantly be inspired to cook something but lack many, many specialty ingredients from specialty stores to the point that not one recipe could be tried without heavy pre-planning. Plus in the other cookbooks I have it seems each recipe would require different specialty items from the next so you didn't have a basic arsenal of ingredients to draw from and experiment with. You really would start to feel discouraged. I am so incredibly happy with this book because there is such a wonderful mix of complicated recipes that do require pre-planning and simple quick ones that are authentic. I feel that with this book you get the choice of how crazy (Sunset tofu hijiki burgers that uses seaweed, anyone?) or mild (Mostly Mediterranean eggplant parmigiana) you want to cook. This book has phenomenal recipe diversity. The second I opened the book I started making a list of all the things I wanted to try: Coconut kale summer rolls. Curried avocado summer rolls. Peanut coconut dipping sauce. Peruvian purple potato salad. Moroccan vegetable filo pie. Greek eggplant lasagna. Sizzling seitan pho noodle soup. There is not one genre or style of cooking that this cookbook draws from. You'll find Greek, Mexican, Ethiopian, Asian, recipes and more. Basic setian and burger recipes can be found too to keep everyone happy. There's even a recipe in here for yogurt naan bread! At the beginning of the book there's a section that teaches you how to blend spices together to yield Sichuan spice powder, garam masala, olive oil harissa paste, and other kinds of blends which you can use in your cooking adventures. This book has sections on everything: spices, soups, salads, sandwiches, entrees, sauces, stews, dumplings, pasta, desserts, and more. These sections are also evenly balanced so you aren't getting a mess of desserts and soups with little else. There are few pictures meaning that the book is recipe rich. I am so happy with this purchase and I encourage anyone to not hesitate in getting this book, you won't be disappointed!
One last note, I feel like this book encourages you explore. I haven't felt that way in a long time with many vegan cookbooks, especially ones featuring international recipes. You are encouraged to learn the spices or sauces and are given the core concepts of flavors that you can then run wild with and create new things not in this book. So go ahead and make that whipped garlic dip and pour it over steamed cauliflower or use it as a sauce on an amazing pizza. Bravo, Vegan Eats World!

5.0 étoiles sur 5 This book spans the world! 30 octobre 2012
Par K. Cavalier - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié
I was so happy to be a tester for this book. I tested 96 recipes and that's really just skimming the surface of this 300 recipe tome. I cannot say a bad thing about any of the recipes, they were all outstanding and loved by any one that tasted them. The book itself is beautiful, hard cover which is rare and is full of colour photographs and helpful diagrams/illustrations. There are symbols on each recipe to note that they are quick and easy, gluten free, soy free, low fat, low cost and novice recipes which makes it quick to find what you need. There is a huge section in the front of the book dedicated to teaching you the techniques you need to cook these recipes such as cuts, seasoning cookware, full explanation of all the less known ingredients and pantry lists. This section is also filled with tips and tricks that will help you get more out of your ingredients and budget.

Part two is the recipes and starts off with spice blends that you will find in the recipes in the book but you can also use them for other recipes as well. Things like garam masala and berbere spice blends is what you can expect.

Next up is a chapter on Tofu, Seitan and Tempeh that has recipes for seitans that are called for in the book that are easy to prepare and tasty too! The best baked tofu is in this section with three variations so make sure you try the Savory Baked Tofu. It is one of my five year old's favourite things! Also a highlight of this chapter is the Lemon and Olive Chickpea Seitan that is used to make the most delicious Gyro Roasted Seitan later in the book. It is super flavourful and I never would have thought to add olives right into the seitan but it is perfect.

Chapter 3 is full of Pickles, Chutneys and Saucier Sauces with my favourite the Fast Lane Cabbage Kimchi. I had never tried this before but it was so good and went together quick and easy. Another shortcut recipe is the Preserved Lemons Two Ways where there are two variations, one quick and one that takes a bit longer if you have the time. I had also never tried these but soon became addicted to their unique flavour that adds that special something to your tagine dishes. Also delicious and unexpected was the Toasted Hazelnut Crunch Dip (Dukka). It is easy to make and tastes great served with the thick pita she suggests.

Chapter 4 covers Salads, Spreads and Sandwiches where I will suggest you run right to the Orange and Olive Fennel Salad. It is so simple but one of those recipes where simple needs to be in perfect balance and it is. Another favourite of mine from this chapter is the Cultured Cashew Spread with French Herbs. I have made it again and again and love it more everytime. Yet another favourite from this chapter is the Seitan Gyro roll ups that has a most delicious yogurt sauce on top of savory Gyro Roasted Seitan that starts with the Lemon and Olive Chickpea Seitan I mentioned above!

Chapter 5 is Soups which I am usually not a fan of but I took to a few in this book. One was the Greek Creamy Lemon Rice Soup ("No"govlemano) which all my family loved as well. It is warm and hearty, filling and delicious. Another one that I loved was the Sauerkraut Mushroom Soup (Shchi) that is full of mushrooms and kraut and topped with Sour Dilly Cream to come together to make the perfect fall or winter soup when you are craving warmth.

Chapter 6 is Curries, Hearty Stews and Beans where I will be honest I haven't tried much...yet! This section is full of delicious, exotic curries from around the world. I recently tried the Beer Bathed Seitan Stew and Oven Pommes Frites and it was a big hit. I don't like beer in stew usually but this one was in perfect proportion to the other ingredients and is finished with a touch of mustard or vinegar that gives it a perfect tang. It is like a mix of a beef style stew and French Onion soup.

Chapter 7 covers Dumplings, Breads and Pancakes where my favourite Potato Pierogi with Fried Onions are. With a filling of potato spiked with dill and nooch you can't miss and the fried onions on top are my favourite touch. There are also loads of variations and full instructions to help anyone become a pierogi master. Another favourite you should try is the Yogurt Naan Griddle Bread. It is hard to find vegan naan bread where I am so I am very happy to have the perfect recipe in my arsenal now so I can have them anytime I like. These freeze well too and then you can just heat them up when you are ready. This book also introduced me to Very Nice Chickpea Crepes (French Socca) that we now enjoy for a quick supper on weeknights with a salad. They come together quickly and you can customize the flavour by changing up the spices/herbs and toppings. Also try the Jamaican Curry Seitan Patties, there were a favourite of my husband's during testing.

Chapter 8 is Asian Noodles to Mediterranean Pasta where you should try the Sizzling Seitan Pho Noodle Soup. It was one of my favourites prevegan and I hadn't had it since becoming so again happy to have a great recipe that I can make any time the craving hits. I think my very favourite recipe in this book is in this chapter as well, Pad Kee Mao has a definite place in my heart. It is better than any Thai noodle dish I've ever had in a restaurant. Take the time to find the Thai soy sauces in a well stocked Asian market, it's worth it! A close tie for my favourite recipe in this book would be Greek Eggplant Lasagna (Pastichio "Vegani"). It has a creamy bechamel like sauce with a mushroom and eggplant filling in between layers of bucatini pasta. It makes a big pan so it's great for big family suppers.

Chapter 9 is Hearty Entrees and you should go right to the Korean Veggie Bulgogi (Sweet Soy BBQ). It is a mixed grill of seitan, tofu and mushrooms marinated in a sticky sweet and savory bbq sauce that goes great with the Fast Lane Cabbage Kimchi and rice. The Roasted Tomatoes and Peppers Stuffed with Dill Rice (Yemista) was actually the centerpiece on our Thanksgiving table this year (us Canadians are earlier with that). They are a stunning presentation yet easy to put together. The rice stuffing is flavourful with herbs and walnuts. It's one dish I have made again and again since testing as well. Another yummy one from this chapter is the Preserved Lemon Braised Tempeh with Green Olives. It pairs perfectly with the Fluffy Spiced Couscous as suggested and gives you that taste of Morocco. Then try the Golden Tandoori Tofu that is baked in the oven and is bursting with flavour. I make double batches when I make it because we always want the leftovers the next day when they are even tastier because the sauce has gotten all up in the tofu. The Fluffy Scrambled Chickpea "Eggs" with Shallots (But'echa) were also a highlight for us. I had no idea what to expect from it but it was the perfect accompaniment to the Cauliflower and Green Beans in Berbere Sauce found in the next chapter.

Chapter 10 features Robust Vegetable Entrees and Sides. A big hit with our family was the Crispy Oven-Fried Eggplant and Zucchini with Skordalia. You won't believe the crispiness you get from oven baking and you won't be able to walk away from these either until they are all gone! Also delicous, were the Lemon Garlic Potatoes served up with any of the Greek inspired dishes.

Chapter 11 is Rice and Whole Grains: One Pot Meals and Supporting Roles where you can find all kinds of information about how to cook rice properly as well as simple recipes that you can build on later. The Lemony Dill Rice is one of the highlights. I've never been able to get much flavour into a rice dish but this one really shines. The Artichoke Skillet Paella with Chorizo Tempeh Crumbles was another of our very favourites. The tempeh is super easy to make and tastes amazing. The paella itself is studded with pearl onions, peas, tomatoes and artichokes. It makes for a great Sunday supper.

Chapter 12 is where you find Sweet Beginnings otherwise known as desserts and baked goods. The first recipe in this section, Tenacious Tart Tatin was a hit with us. It features a olive oil shortbread crust that make me want to make all crusts with olive oil now! The Caramel Apple Topping is simple but scrumptious and it is amazing when topped with a scoop of vanilla ice cream. Then try the Orange Blossom Hazelnut Baklava which is also helped out by olive oil and again, I would never go back. It is sticky and sweet and filled with nuts. The highlight though is the Italian Cashewcotta Cheesecake. It is simple the best cheesecake I've ever had. It is a softer version than the usual solid New York style cheesecake, it is creamy and smooth, just the right amount of sweet and has zest from orange and lemon to make it perfect.

The last part of the book, Part 3, has menus, online resources, Recipes by Icon, Metric Conversions and the Index. I'll admit my only dislike about the book is the index. It seems I have a hard time finding what I am looking for in it. I have marked all my favourites to make it easier for myself. But it is a small complaint for all that it gets right. You should absolutely add this to your cookbook library and take a trip around the world right in your own home through these amazing recipes.

3.0 étoiles sur 5 Disappointed with index and organizational structure 2 octobre 2016
Par Anna - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié Achat vérifié
I purchased this book soon after it came out, and I've hardly used it. The few dishes that I made from it ranged from okay to great. The reason I haven't used this book as much as I thought I would is because it's difficult to navigate. Recipes for specific types of cuisines (Indian, Chinese, etc.) are scattered throughout the book. Even in a specific section (soups, noodles, etc.), specific regions are not grouped together. The index is missing a lot of ingredients/recipes. Endives, pumpkin, and bok choy are the few missing ingredients I've found so far. There are a few, nice pictures scattered throughout the book, which are helpful, but most recipes don't offer photos. Overall, I am a bit disappointed, as I don't find myself inspired to cook from this book, and when I am, I find myself struggling to find a recipe.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 As good or better than Veganomicon - and that's saying a lot! 23 septembre 2014
Par David G. Andersen - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié Achat vérifié
Along with Veganomicon, this is one of the best cookbooks I've used - period. Not one of the best vegan cookbooks, but just a great cookbook overall: there's a diversity of recipes, they've all tasted good, and they cook well out of the box. (In fact, I think it outdoes veganomicon in terms of the amount of care applied to making sure the recipes work out well, and the proofreading seems a tad bit better).

My former go-to for "world" recipes was World Vegetarian, which is also a great source to have around, but having a book that's already tweaked the recipes to remove dairy has been great at reducing guesswork and the number of experiments to get things right. And, compared to WV, this book draws a bit more from Africa, so the two complement each other well.

Btw - after reading some of the other reviews, I'm honestly surprised. I've been able to find everything needed for the recipes. One of the examples from another review was Chinese Black vinegar -- you can get it on Amazon. Just search for Chinkiang Vinegar, and two days later you'll have what you need. :) I looked through the book and couldn't find much that's hard to find in a reasonable-sized city, and most of what's needed I just get at whole foods. Thai light soy? Amazon. Golden mountain sauce? Check. Some of the recipes call for things not everyone will stock, but the vast majority work well with a basic set of indian/middle eastern spices (coriander, cumin, cinnamon, garam masala ingredients, etc.) and asian.

The people who complain about the binding are right, however - mine's popping out in spots. That's annoying. If I weren't so happy with the recipes, I'd downgrade to four stars. Publisher, please fix that in the next printing.
