We eat mainly vegetarian and slowly moving to mostly vegan diet, fairly decent cook but need some ideas and a pretty new cookbook

The China Study cookbook.

I get most of my recipes from the internet though, but I have heard that one is good.

Appetite for Reduction and Veganomicon by Isa Chandra Moskowitz are both good but ^^ as said most of my recipes are from the internet. I have got to the stage where I can veganise most of my family recipes so while I have loads of cookery books I rarely use them. My one gripe with most vegan cookery books is the lack of photos sad

Can I thread hijack please and ask for vegan baking book suggestions? smile

yeha to be honest I get a lot of recipes already online and it's hard to veganise our current menu but I'm a bit stuck in a rut and love having a good cookbook with lots of pictures to flick through and try

Would you recommend Veganomican over Isa Does It?

Anyone have this book? I love her online cake recipes.

I love Chloe's Vegan Desserts by Chloe Coscarelli (tho it's American and the recipes are on the sweet side).

I love her online recipes figgypuddings and though her blog is annoyingly irritating I actually quite like her too so thinking of ordering hers or Isa's

So what are a Graham crackers and where do I get them from? smile

figgypuddings Mon 24-Feb-14 18:43:05

I don't know what they are so used some muesli instead. It is just heavenly. smile

Oh ok. Will give that a go then. They do sound delicious. Where are you, I might nip

Ms cupcake: the naughtiest vegan cakes in town. Yum, but I usually cut the sugar down a bit

I'm near Muckle Flugga, Jilted wink
It might all be gone by the time the next ferry arrives...

I like Appetite For Reduction best, but no desserts (I think as it's a low cal book the rationale is, if you are having dessert then have it properly).

Was not inspired by Isa Does It at all, really regret buying it.

Veganonimcon is a fairly good all rounder.

A great resource for cookbook advice is the PPK forums- they have a cookbook forum with masses of books listed with pics and mini reviews of peoples hits and misses and tips etc.

oh no cecy that's my winning idea out - it has such great amazon reviews!

Graham Crackers are these weird savoury biscuit/cracker things you only get in America...personally think the closest thing is oatcakes
