Tal Ronnen has broken the bar and re-set it on a Mountain top when it comes to gourmet vegan cuisine. He has been personal chef to Oprah Winfrey, Ellen DeGeneres, Kathy Freston, and many other beyond a-list stars, and now you can steal his recipes to recreate for your own family. After Tal’s appearance on Oprah last week where she called him the “worlds best vegan chef” his newly released book shot to the top of the sales charts, YES – a VEGAN cookbook is #1 today on Amazon. And no, hell has not frozen over.
And after thumbing through this book, it’s easy to see why. The recipes are delectable but not unapproachable, using Tal’s signature gourmet presentation and flavorful, filling food. If you’ve ever scoffed at vegan food, you’ll feel like a fool after thumbing through this book for two seconds.
What are you waiting for? Go buy this book. It’s gorgeous, will look fantastic on your bookshelf, and you will use it constantly. Oh, and you may as well buy a few copies now because it’s the PERFECT holiday gift for the gal or dude who has everything. One thing we can say for sure, our kitchen shelf is currently getting bogged down with the cornucopia of magnificent vegan cookbooks now on the market, and we couldn’t be more psyched. Compassionate living (and eating) is slowly spreading across the world, and the spirit of showing kindness towards animals is growing. Let us never forget that the morality of a society is measured in how it treats it’s most defenseless lives. If you can do one little thing today to show compassion for the world (and therefore yourself,) choose a vegan lunch or dinner. It’s better for your body, the environment, and the animals… kind of a no-brainer, huh?
