Now in paperback, the New York Times bestseller that makes healthful, conscious cooking easy, from Ellen DeGeneres's personal chef.
Martin, a Culinary Institute of America-trained chef, explains, "What Ellen, Portia, and I learned together was that vegan food is no different than any other cuisine. Flavors that work in nonvegan meals work on vegan dishes just as well; you just have to rely less on the specific ingredients of a recipe and more on the technique....What I have done in this book is to gather recipes that anyone, carnivore, vegetarian, or vegan-would love."
Some of the standouts Martin has developed for Ellen and Portia include: Banana and Oatmeal Pancakes, Avocado Reuben, Red Beans and Rice, "Chick 'n' Pot Pie," and Chocolate Cheesecake. Featuring mouthwatering photographs by Quentin Bacon, this cookbook will appeal to die-hard carnivores and vegetarians alike.
Ellen DeGeneres's personal chef shares the delicious, easy-to-make vegan recipes he's created for Ellen, Portia de Rossi and others.
