Are you craving a way to eat killer food without killing yourself, animals, or the planet? Is your brain bloated from watching cooking shows that present recipes you re never, ever going to make? Have you been searching for a way to prove to your friends that vegan food can be just as delicious, hearty, and satisfying as the meaty meals they re accustomed to? Then this is the book for you. Of his journey from watching food porn on his parents couch to cooking in Hollywood kitchens to becoming vegan, author Brian Patton writes: My roommate said he didn t know what made me a bigger loser: that I was painstakingly preserving episodes of 30 Minute Meals or that I was trying to conceal their existence by labeling them Star Trek....Once I discovered that I could not only survive but thrive without taking the life of another being, I was sold. I was a vegan. For good. And that s how an ordinary dude became the Sexy Vegan and started creating extraordinary food with a decidedly real-meal appeal. On every page, Brian proves that seriously good food needn t be too serious.

Review: The Sexy Vegan Cookbook: Extraordinary Food from an Ordinary Dude

User Review  - Amy Elizabeth - Goodreads

The recipes look good and as straightforward as vegan cookery could be. The writing style is off putting and juvenile, like listening to an eleven year old tell fart jokes on a long car ride. Read full review

User Review  - Roger Williams - Goodreads

Even if you aren't vegan you should get this cookbook. The recipes are fairly easy to follow and they are beyond delicious. Oh and the first chapter of recipes is cocktails! Read full review
