Victoria Moran (author of many books, including The Main Street Vegan, and JL Fields (author The Vegan Air Fryer: The healthier Way to Enjoy Deep-Fried Flavors” and soon to be re-released Vegan Pressure Cooking) have collaborated with over 100 Main Street Vegan Academy Lifestyle Coaches and Educators to create The Main Street Vegan Academy Cookbook, which is not only an extraordinary repertoire of mouthwatering vegan dishes but is also a celebration of what it means to live a vegan lifestyle, not just eat a plant-based diet. Regardless of where you fit in with a vegan lifestyle, I promise you will find this elegantly-illustrated, information-packed book more than just your ordinary cookbook.
Holiday Vegan Brunch
To celebrate its much-anticipated arrival on the shelves (and just in time for Holiday gifting, I might add), I did a Holiday Vegan Brunch sponsored by and at the Whole Foods in Sedona, AZ on Saturday, December 9, 2017.
In addition to delighting 27 guests to Vegan Eggs Benedict Florentine with Air-Fried Rosemary-Scented Home Fries, I performed a culinary demonstration, showing them how they can create, with ease, the English Muffins (with all those very same nooks and crannies that the well-known store brand is known for), vegan eggs, Hollandaise sauce, creamed spinach, and air-fried home fries. All five recipes are my own original creations.
The recipes for both the English Muffins and Hollandaise sauce appear in The Main Street Vegan Academy Cookbook, on pages 50-51 and page 65 respectively.
Since the event took place in the restaurant area, at least another 25-30 people joined us as observers of the demo.
Let’s Talk More About the Cookbook …
The book starts with Jane Velez-Mitchell’s Forward. Book-ending the luscious chapters of delectable recipes are chapters covering all aspects of living a vegan lifestyle.
In addition to a plethora of plant-based, vegan recipes (there’s more than 100 recipes), the book abounds with Coaching Tips, from guidance/clarification regarding ingredients, to kitchen hacks, to Sustainable Fashion Choices, to name only a scant few.
And the photos!!! Oh my! Jackie Sobon’s deftness with a camera has the food jumping right off the page, aiming straight for my five senses.
Two other original recipes of mine, the Divinely Decadent Chocolate Stout Cake and Chocolate-Dipped Coconut Cookies, are also included in this most valuable resource that should be in everyone’s kitchen.
This book is definitely destined to become one of those go-to, always have at the ready, resources for anyone and everyone interested in preparing delicious vegan food.
