Venturesome Vegan Cooking breaks the vegan mold, focusing on great flavor and innovative recipes from around the globe. The more than 100 recipes have a strong international pedigree, including recipes drawn from the authors' travels in Europe and Africa. The book features manageable, easy-to-make recipes written in a clear, straightforward style. It introduces readers to unusual ingredients slowly, incorporating them into otherwise familiar dishes, resulting in bold, fresh flavors with a comfortable dash of tradition.

Some of the recipes guaranteed to delight the palate are: Fresh Spring Rolls, Spicy Creamy Hummus, Spicy Asian Noodle Salad, Hearty Autumn Squash and Bean Stew, Memere's Shepherd's Pie, Sweet Apricot Potatoes with Pine Nuts, Pasta Spirals with Creamy Potato and Artichoke Sauce, Peppery Pumpkin Risotto, Succulent Strawberry and Vinegar Sauce, Chocolate Fudge Pie, Sticky Cinnamon Nut Rolls, Spare the Pigs Hash, and scores of others.

Venturesome Vegan means bold, fresh flavors; healthful recipes that challenge and excite the palate but are designed for the typical home cook (with typical home cook skills); and great vegan cooking for both vegan beginners and those looking to break out of their usual rut.

About the author (1994)

Roald (pronounced "Roo-aal") was born in Llandaff, South Wales. He had a relatively uneventful childhood and was educated at Repton School. During World War II he served as a fighter pilot and for a time was stationed in Washington, D.C.. Prompted by an interviewer, he turned an account of one of his war experiences into a short story that was accepted by the Saturday Evening Post, which were eventually collected in Over to You (1946). Dahl's stories are often described as horror tales or fantasies, but neither description does them justice. He has the ability to treat the horrible and ghastly with a light touch, sometimes even with a humorous one. His tales never become merely shocking or gruesome. His purpose is not to shock but to entertain, and much of the entertainment comes from the unusual twists in his plots, rather than from grizzly details. Dahl has also become famous as a writer of children's stories. In some circles, these works have cased great controversy. Critics have charged that Dahl's work is anti-Semitic and degrades women. Nevertheless, his work continues to be read: Charlie and Chocolate Factory (1964) was made into a successful movie, and his books of rhymes for children continue to be very popular.
