Combining a simple design with oodles of valuable veggie cooking info and mouth-watering recipes, Burton's latest cookbook features "celebration" recipes and is every bit as good as her previous books, the now-classic The Everyday Vegan
and the impressive follow-up Vive le Vegan!
.... Vegan cooking is always a celebration when Burton's books are in the kitchen.
Like its predecessors, Eat, Drink & Be Vegan
puts flavour at the fore. Even as a raging carnivore, I can see myself making her Thai coconut corn stew or tomato-dill-lentil soup.
In the book, Burton proves that vegan dishes can be easy and quick to make, using familiar, everyday ingredients.
