Taste of Europe cookbook review
Posted Dec 03 2012 6:00am
I was given the chance to review and write a post about Mark Reinfeld's new cookbook
The 30 Minute Vegan's Taste of Europe
I was pretty excited to take a peek at this.
I love European food but since giving up on meat and almost all dairy I wasn't sure what delicacies I would be able to eat.
Mark's book though is chock full of choices separated out by various countries, instead of chapters.
I went straight to France first, as I have been to Paris a few times and have always thought their food was amazing.
He has recipes for
French Onion Soup
Kermit's Relief (faux frog's legs)
However to please my family I went with Italy and Greece for our first recipes to try.
I chose a spanikopita filling and instead put it in ravioli (I used wonton wrappers as a short cut) and topped it with Mark's Italian sun dried tomato sauce.
The picture isn't very good as the pasta was warm, and steaming, but I did the best I could with my amateur skills.
Oh my goodness the filling was wonderful.
It had tofu in it and my kids ate it right up...no idea that it was in there (to them that is a little bit of a "funny" ingredient).
The recipe was simple to follow and I never had a moment where I had to second guess the directions.
Mark puts variations for each recipe as well as a tips and trick section to make things a bit easier.
I found these sections answered any questions I had about the recipes I was reading.
This is a great cookbook for vegans, wannabe vegans, or vegan curious.
You will find tons of variety in the food choices and will surely find a meal that omnivores to vegans alike will enjoy.
Do you have any new cookbook that you have found? Do you have any one your Christmas wish list?

A better sense of taste
I have lost my sense to taste and smell 6 months after a subdural hematoma. Will I be able to taste and smell again.
