I am so proud of this 7th book of Donna's! The recipes are great (even for a non-vegan) and her writing is inspiring. I have known Donna since she became my sister's best friend in college and am amazed at her accomplishments, especially the year spent in China, which inspired this latest book. ...more

In her book The Chinese Vegan Kitchen Donna Klein has done a marvelous job of taking down the intimidation factor of Chinese cooking.

She does a fabulous job in the beginning of explaining the ingredients and where they can be purchased.

The ingredient list in the recipes seem long at first but if you make many of the things in the book your pantry will be well stocked and the list will seem approachable. The directions are clear and easy to follow.

Thank you Donna for stretching the American rep

Toss the takeout menus and get cooking!

Full disclosure: I received a free copy of this book for review at the publisher's behest.

I've taken to reviewing cookbooks lately because I like the challenge. I can be rather lazy when it comes to cooking, and tend to procrastinate to the point where my only choices for dinner are last night's leftovers - or a pita bread pizza. Making unfamiliar dishes, on the other hand, requires planning and flexibility - my culinary arch nemeses! Enter: the cookbook re

Full transparency I am not vegan, rather I eat vegan for a healthy balance about three days a week. Having said that, I was vegan for over eight years and am a formally trained macrobiotic chef.

This is one of those rare gems where the book is well written and loaded with great recipes. The author does a spectacular job of covering all the steps and little details. Not one of these has failed in our test kitchen;)

The only negative, not liking this on my Kindle. So nothing to do with the author an

I love Donna's cookbooks, and was so excited to get this one. Although I needed to take time and slowly stock up my pantry, most of the items are cheap (under $5) and last a long time. All the directions for fresh noodles and whatnot can seem off-putting, but using the dried stuff in the supermarket works just fine. And frying your own tofu is so easy, so don't go out of your way to find the premade stuff. My favorite recipe is Quick Chao Fen with Scallions and Peanuts. Easy and so, so good. Bas ...more
