David, Luise and Elsa are a family who love to travel. Hungry to see and taste more of the world, they had embarked on an around-the-world trip by the time Elsa was just 7 months old. They slept on a friend's couch in Brooklyn, hunted for a vegetarian restaurant in Beijing, and were mesmerized by the street food in Vietnam. By the time David and Luise returned home, their ...more

Great photos of food, sunny exotic places, tans and birkenstocks, great escapism for cold UK weather that shows no sign of spring. The food looked great too, but no recipes that made me want to try them. Plenty of vegan recipes. The ones I liked the look of were very involved, nearly all the ones I looked at had ingredients I don't think I could find in our nearest city, some ingredients I'd never heard of. Personally I like a few quick and easy recipes, I'm more likely to try an easy one and if ...more

Gode historier til opskrifterne. Nemme retter som smager af meget. Og forslag til at gøre det meste vegansk - samt smukke billeder. Min Go-To kogebog!

I had a problem with this book - being a GKS for AGES I had high expectations. The photos were very good and most recipes sounded great too. We tried at least 15-20 of them and at least half didn't work out. I mean, they were tasty but there was always something wrong with the quantity, method, etc. so we had to make them twice to modify them a bit and enjoy the dishes properly. Surely there are some favourites we'll keep coming back to (see links below) and if that was a blog I would easily for ...more

I have just fallen in love with the GREEN KITCHEN STORIES, their blog & cookbooks all over again !! I’m in love with this cookbook ! Not only it’s packed with good, nourishing, vegetarian recipes, but they have included their photos from their travel too! The best thing about this cookbook - the recipes are so easy to make and they are packed with goodness !! Can’t wait to start cooking :)

I love the pictures (therefore 2 stars). The recipes not so much. They're much more of a hassle than described and not that tasty. I don't think the recipes were thoroughly tested, which really bugs me.

It's nice as a coffee table book though.

I am very much a fan of Green Kitchen. Their cookbooks definitely have a good mix of recipes, beautiful photography, and a human touch. Their books show the time they have spent working on it, pictures of the family enjoying the actual food they are talking about. It is generally just a good selection. They have good suggestions for how to make some of their recipes vegan if you lean that way but in general they just have a really delicious wholesome approach to food for the whole family.

A very beautiful book with clear recipes, personal stories and some advice for travelling with a small child. All the recipes are vegetarian (as long as you choose veggie cheeses), many are vegan or have a vegan option, many are gluten free. I only wish they would have added some information about their travel photos, because now I have no idea where they were taken.

As usual with their cookbooks, a few of the recipes we made were delicious, and a few were puzzling and not very tasty.

Gorgeous book! The photos were stunning, and I loved reading their travel stories. I've tried 3 of their recipes so far...all delicious! I just wish there were some non-vegetarian options. ...more

Un bellissimo libro di ricette vegetariane di tutto il mondo. Alcune semplici, altre più difficili, ma tutte appassionanti e buonissime. Ne ho provate un paio e non vedo l'ora di continuare! ...more

"Die grüne Küche auf Reisen" ist ein wirklich außergewöhnliches Kochbuch, das mir glatt entgangen wäre, wenn ich nicht einen Newsletter erhalten hätte, in dem von dem Buch geschwärmt wurde.

Da wir seit einigen Monaten unsere Ernährung weitestgehend auf "Veggie" umgestellt haben, sind wir immerzu neugierig auf neue, leckere Rezeptideen, die gerne auch mal etwas außergewöhnlich sein dürfen. Mein Interesse war also direkt geweckt und ich habe mich beim Verlag auf das Buch beworben.

Stockholm, Brooklyn, San Francisco, San Diego, Beijing, Vietnam, Thailand, India, Marokko, Griekenland, Mexico … De meeste mensen gaan tijdens een wereldreis op zoek naar monumenten en andere bezienswaardigheden, maar het gezin Frenkiel – Vidahl trok naar lokale markten en ontdekte via de bevolking hun plaatselijke vegetarische specialiteiten. Welke taal je ook spreekt – eten verbindt mensen met elkaar. Tijdens hun reis onmoeten ze dan ook veel gelijkgestemde zielen en vinden ze nieuwe inspirati ...more

This cookbook offers an excellent, refreshing take on vegetarian cuisine. Most of the recipes are very simple, and even though the recipes are diverse, they don't feature a lot of exotic (i.e. impossible to find) ingredients. There's a huge variety in the geographic inspiration for the recipes, but I'd say that most have a Mediterranean or East Asian origin.

As this is a travel cookbook, the photography in my opinion is far superior beyond what is found in most cookbooks. There's shots of the ci

Even if I'm not a vegetarian I've got a idea about getting some more green food in to our life. This book is a good supplement to doing just that. It's got really beautiful pictures of the food, good tips for making the dishes and good travel tips as well.

If you're vegan or have a gluten allergy then this book also makes sure that you can make the recipes and enjoy the food from the book.

The food is really tasty and you can almost get hooked to continue trying all the recipes.
Really gorgeous cookbook filled with travel adventures. Perfect for a vegetarian traveler like me, with wonderful photos, interesting recipes. They are obsessed with being gluten-free, not a must for me at all, but many gorgeous photos, and I'm so envious of their lifestyle. ...more

Nice plant based recipes with a spin. The book differes from the lifestyle cook-books out there, as the recipes don´t seem to be the usual ones fand in a million other ones. I also liked the structure and Fotos of the book.

Spännande och inspirerande recept. Ska bli roligt att testa. Känns en aning komplicerat i vissa fall dock.

Beautiful photography, inspiring recipes.

Time consuming recipes, but also simple recipes. Dishes from lovely places.

Great traveling tips!

I like borrowing from the library first. Most cookbooks get returned to the library, never to be seen again. This one, I will be buying.
