More than just a vegan cookbook, this is a guide to developing a healthier relationship with food. The emphasis is on innovative simplicity and using easy-to-find ingredients in unexpected ways. All the basics are included, with information on everything from sharpening knives to potato varieties for beginner chefs and must-try concoctions for seasoned chefs. Just as valuable are the numerous essays written by activists which cover topics ranging from vegan parenting and Western nutrition to reducing waste, growing your own food and eating seasonally.
