VeganYumYum cookbook ready for pre-order

by admin on October 29, 2007 · 1 comment

I’ve just placed a pre-order for Lauren Ulm’s VeganYumYum, a cookbook named after and based on one of our favorite food blogs. The book is being published by Herbivore and will ship in early December.

As a former cheesemaker and life-long carnivore, I am far from vegan. But I am excited to get this cookbook because I love the variety of Lauren’s recipes and the way she explains their qualities. (Who knew cheeseless mac and cheese could be so good?) I also love her photos and her style — beautiful but not overstylized — and her “real” looking food. Most of all, I love her writing. She’s funny, honest and personable, but she doesn’t strive for laughs or try to bare her soul. She tends towards brevity but leaves nothing out. How better to start a post on cabbage than with this sentence: “I never know what the hell to do with cabbage.” (In this case, she made a delicious hot and sour cabbage soup.)

Pre-order the book: Lauren Ulm’s VeganYumYum.

I adore VYY! And you’re so right about her tone. I read her posts and want to know her.
