In this book, Chef Ori Ann takes her readers on a fun journey throughout Asia to find the tastiest vegan fare. Paired with stunning color photographs, her 65 irresistible all-vegan recipes feature gourmet and everyday Asian, global fusion, healing super foods and great stories of adventures. It’s a unique and rare cookbook which combines culinary art, practical cooking and health tips with moving stories of her family and her travels.
As a culinary artist, she believes that food is a mind-body experience and should appeal to the eye and other senses as well as the palate. By creatively blending culture, art, elegance, flavor and health in every recipe, she developed her own style of cuisines. In many cases, she adapted and reinterpreted traditional recipes and made them healthier and even tastier while reintroducing them to mainstream readers. The beautiful presentation of each dish makes it possible to turn everyday meals into key attractions for dinner parties and gatherings.
Some recipes may look more complicated than others, but most are versatile and surprisingly easy to follow. In each recipe, she gives generous tips on how to make it or to find substitute ingredients. The chapter on healing super foods is particularly helpful for cooks who wish to learn how to incorporate the healing foods into their daily diet. With a family background in herbal medicine, she often explores the healing properties of ingredients and tries to group them to maximize health benefits while maintaining flavor and authenticity. The appendix and glossary are helpful tools in assisting the readers to identify vegan products and ingredients in major grocery stores and markets.
