Mastering The Art of Vegan Cooking


In our new book, we strive to show readers how to cook creatively and thriftily with recipes, sidebars, and tips on stocking a pantry and using ingredients creatively. Most recipes result in leftover ingredients and servings that can be reused in multiple ways, reducing waste in your kitchen while keeping your meals fresh and flavorful. Inspired by the recipes and cost-saving techniques used during the Depression and World War II and paying a vegan homage to Julia Child, we’ve worked to create a system that’ll help vegans and not-yet-vegans alike get the most out of what kitchen goods you’ve already invested in so that you can spend less and get more. With recipes like Korean Kimchi BBQ Burgers, Vegan Yankee Pot Roast, Not-cho Everyday Chili Dogs, and Savannah Pecan Pies, MASTERING THE ART OF VEGAN COOKING offers a way to make eating vegan both affordable and delicious.

“The recipes in Mastering the Art of Vegan Cooking are as delicious as they are easy to make. And the fact that you can also do it all on a budget is starting to make me wonder whether this is as much a book of sorcery as it is a cookbook. Either way, home cooking and I are getting along in a way that I never thought we could, thanks to Annie and Dan Shannon’s wonderful new book.” – Jack Shepherd, Editorial Director and Beastmaster at Buzzfeed and Author of Review of My Cat
