This is a ridiculous book unless you just want to look at the pretty pictures. If that's the case, then it gets 5 stars because the food looks pretty amazing. I am a very good vegan cook, with a well-stocked pantry, and half the ingredients in these recipes I wouldn't even know where to get. Not to mention that while I plate things beautifully, I don't have a sculpture/art degree to make these recipes look like the pictures.

What I found particularly annoying though is the idea that she got all

A superb introduction to vegan cooking by a laundry list of the finest chefs in the world. I gave the book three stars only because the technical difficulty and unrealistic prep-time for many of the dishes, but a large sum of the recipes are very manageable and extremely innovative.

This book takes vegan up a notch. Yes, it is not a beginners book. The book's author is a vegetarian and just about every trained chef knows how to cook vegetarian. It is not a huge leap for a great chef to go the extra distance and make an amazing vegan menu.

If you want a more accessible gourmet vegan book, I suggest 'The Millennium Cookbook'.

This book is beautiful, elegant, and mouth-watering! Food porn at it's best! Not only does it have recipes, and tells you how to make the most elegant vegan meals, but it even includes instructions on how to plate each dish for that super gourmet, elegant look. I HAD to buy this book!

I've cooked a few meals out of this book for special occasions. Every meal was a stunning success and easy to do if you prepare in advance and allow time for cooking. Not for people who want fast simple meals.

Completely out of my league as a home cook. Lots of ingredients I don't care for, like fennel. Vegan Cooking For Carnivores and Pure Vegan are much more accessible for busy home cooks.

Many of the tools and ingredients called for in these gourmet recipes, making it rather complicated to cook. One example: chef’s torch. The book has nice photos though!

Great for special occaisions and showing off! This book assumes you have already amassed a variety of technique and is not for the beginning cook.
