Some posts on priest-y issues are coming soon, but for those who haven’t seen it yet….. Isa Moskowitz and Terry Romero’s new cookbook is out – The Veganomicon – and it is fantastic. I don’t care if you are a total omnivore who chases and kills animals in your backyard. (Hey, I was born in Kentucky. I’ve seen such things.) Well, actually, I do care… but this is plain good food, period, regardless of your choices about eating. For details, see their website: www.theppk.com
A couple of other recent and excellent resources: Mark Bittman (well known for his weekly column “The Minimalist” in The New York Times) has a new book called How to Cook Everything Vegetarian. The book is octo-lavo, and Bittman is not a vegetarian. Nonetheless, he’s full of great ideas, helpful suggestions, tasty recipes. Dino Sarma’s first book, Alternative Vegan, is also well worth a look. Dino’s recipes are focused on fresh produce (as opposed to soy products, seitan, and the like), and display broad-ranging influences, especially from his native India. He’s also excellent at providing suggestions for cooking on a budget, and saving time without sacrificing quality. Dino may be the next Isa Moskowitz! He has a blog at http://altveg.blogspot.com/.
