I have just discovered Baker Creek by ordering their organic, open pollinated heirloom seeds. Where have I been all these years without learning about this fabulous company. The Gettle's have done extensive traveling all for the sake of saving fruits and veg's that are on the brink of extinction. They also grow what they sell so they know what their products taste like.
The restaurant is a product of the produce grown and learning how to expand on the techniques of preparation. The cookbook comes from the popularity of the food offered. The cookbook offers such a vast array of recipes that are vegan and just superb. Easy to prepare. Great book and anyone who is vegan should have this.

Recipes had a lot of exotic IngredientsReviewed in the United States on 17 March 2019
I was hoping for a home style cookbook to give me some new inspiration for preparing vegetables. Instead, it had many exotic Ingredients that aren't readily available and are expensive. Oh well.

fineReviewed in the United States on 29 January 2020
I love this company and wanted to support their efforts. My vegan lifestyle doesn't include nuts or oil, so most recipes won't work for me. Still, I'll cherish the book.
Gift plus oneReviewed in the United States on 4 January 2014
Bought this book as a gift for my nephew's wife, (who is vegan), but it looked interesting enough to order one for myself as well. I love cookbooks and this is a worthy addition to my collection. I already know how to preserve foods, so I was more interested in the recipes. My nephew's wife is interested in learning to preserve, so it is a sort of primer for her.
