* full, balanced menus with appetizer, main course, and side dishes
* a luscious array of soups and an ingenious selection of desserts
* invaluable information on terms, ingredients, and techniques

From Our Editors

Offering more than 200 creative and colourful recipes that look as good as they taste, Myra Kornfeld and George Minot’s book of recipes is all the more impressive considering none of the zesty dishes contain meat, eggs or dairy products. As perfect for the beginning vegetarian cook as for the seasoned chief, The Voluptuous Vegan astounds and delights taste buds with such tantalizing foods as “Pumpkin Ravioli,” “Greek Moussaka,” Mexican tamales and fajitas as well as a surprising spectrum of delicious vegan desserts.
