Produktinformation

Produktbeschreibungen

Amazon.de

Sound like an oxymoron? Myra Kornfeld argues that choosing to be a vegan does not mean you have to deprive yourself--rather, you can pamper your palate with luscious, healthy food. There are those who advocate salt-free, fat-free, flavor-free food, but Kornfeld sets the record straight right from the beginning. She uses salt for seasoning, and reminds us, thank goodness, that you need fat in a healthy diet. Clear instructions, a chapter on ingredients (including sections on grains, greens, and beans--how to buy them, cook them, and use them), and a short primer on equipment make this a good book for beginners. More accomplished cooks will appreciate Kornfeld's innovation. She isn't afraid to use herbs and spices, and she knows the capabilities of her ingredients. In a simple Rich Stock recipe, for instance, she calls for celery root, and explains in a note that you can substitute celery, but that the root gives a much deeper flavor. Kornfeld's food is voluptuous in presentation, too: Smoky Chestnut and Sweet Potato Soup calls for a dash of rum, and it's served with toasted, chopped hazelnuts and a pinch of freshly grated nutmeg; Hominy, Tomatillo, and Squash Stew is topped with Ginger and Lime Cream made from tofu; and a Fennel, Orange, and Pomegranate Salad is so beautiful and the flavor so complex, you'll swear you're eating four-star cuisine.

The book is a little difficult to navigate, as it's divided into "meals." So if all you're looking for is a side dish, you'll need to set some time aside to peruse the whole book. Every recipe starts with a few words of wisdom, usually information on the ingredients or a description of the final product. The final chapter is on desserts, and here Kornfeld really gets voluptuous. The recipes include Cranberry Orange Tart, Chocolate Pudding Tart, and Lemon Pudding Cake with Blueberry Glaze--there's no depriving anyone of anything here! Vegans will appreciate the creative and inventive approach, but this cookbook is also useful for nonvegans. Everyone knows someone who's trying to avoid meat, dairy, or eggs, and with loads of ideas for light meals and interesting side dishes, we can entertain our friends and eat healthy at the same time. --Leora Y. Bloom

Endlich habe ich die Zeit gefunden Rezepte aus diesem Buch auszuprobieren und es hat sich gelohnt! Wir haben für eine Freundin ein veganes 4-Gänge Menü gekocht und waren begeistert! Keiner wollte glauben, dass die Mousse au Chocolat Torte ohne Milchprodukte und Eier ist! Die selbstgemachten Ravioli mit der Bohnen-Knoblauch Sauce zergehen auf der Zunge! Nouvelle Cuisine vom feinsten! Besonders geeignet, wenn man Nicht-Veganer davon überzeugen will, dass veganes Essen auch lecker schmeckt! Einige Rezepte sind allerdings aufwändig. Als Anfängerbuch vielleicht nicht unbedingt zu empfehlen.

Bei diesem Buch handelt es sich um ein veganes Kochbuch auf gehobenem Niveau. Es ist das erste seiner Art, das mir bisher begegnet ist.

Die Rezepte erfordern ein gewisses "Küchen-Know-How" und sind daher vor allem für Gourmets oder Fortgeschrittene geeignet, aber auch für Anfänger mit Ausdauer, Experimentierfreude und ausreichend Frustrationstoleranz, sollte etwas nicht gelingen oder nicht den Erwartungen entsprechen.

Neben einer Vorstellung von Zutaten werden auch Geräte und Schneidetechniken kurz vorgestellt und durch prägnante S/W-Zeichnungen veranschaulicht.

Die Rezepte, die fast alle zusammengefasst sind als komplette Menüs, sind so gegliedert, dass innerhalb einer Seite die Zutaten links stehen und die Zubereitungsweise rechts. Photos sind nicht vorhanden.

Kleine Informationen, Tipps oder Kommentare ergänzen jedes einzelne Rezept.

Die Menü-Zusammenstellungen mit ihren Zutaten und Zubereitungen, durch die sich das Buch auszeichnet, sind exquisit und nichts für die schnelle Küche.

Für Festessen - Geburtstags-, Weihnachts- oder Hochzeitsfeiern - ist das Buch wie geschaffen.

Die Rezepte sind genial. Tolle Menüvorschläge. Leider ist das Buch auf sehr einfachem Papier und nur schwarz-weiß gedruckt. Es hat keine Fotos und inspiriert daher nur wenig.
Trotzdem ist alles, was ich daraus gekocht habe, einfach genial.

Von jumpy1 - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com

I am writing this because of the person who said the recipes were bland -- i couldn't believe it! So far I am not only impressed with this book, but genuinely thrilled to have found a really gourmet cookbook for balanced, healthy vegan meals. If I'm having people over they don't even notice there's no meat. It's so elegant, and the ingredients come from across the globe (you do have to carry a lot of groceries for some of them!). The issue I think someone would have is, one must have access to good health food and specialty stores and special produce. You have to have a food processor, blender, spice grinder etc. and the recipes have many elements so it takes a while to complete. But the results for me, so far, are wonderful. I wonder if the person who found it bland was using old spices and substituting ingredients? I am a trained chef, and I think the recipes are somewhat complicated, so can imagine that the average cook might find some of them time-consuming to reproduce adequately. If that is the case, my advice is, make sure you've got the necessary equipment, get fresh organic produce, grind your own spices (or use brand-new ones) and leave yourself an entire afternoon to do it right.

HASH(0x9f697b94) von 5 Sternen A Taste of Heaven! 3. Dezember 2000
Von Ein Kunde - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
Anyone, vegetarian or carnivore, who is looking for a useful and delicious collection of recipes should own a copy of this book. I eat a broad range of foods and didn't think I'd be that interested in exclusively vegan dishes, but I've been pleasantly surprised. Every dish I've tried from this book has been incredibly rich-tasting and delicious. Last night I served the Caribbean Black Bean soup at a gathering and it was the hit of the party; it had amazing depth of flavor. Despite the complexity of tastes in these dishes, the recipes are all very easy to follow, and every step is explained clearly, so even if you're a novice cook, you shouldn't have any problem creating incredible meals. There are lots of cool cooking tips, and the book is actually quite fun to read. It's also beautifully laid-out and designed, and the cover is a knock-out! The Voluptous Vegan would make a great gift for anyone who wants to avoid animal products, who is allergic to dairy, who is trying to eat healthier, or who just wants to learn how to prepare scrumptious, delicious meals and desserts. I HIGHLY recommend it!

HASH(0x9f697f24) von 5 Sternen Excellent in every way 30. November 2000
Von P. Kunkel - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
Like many Americans, my early culinary history included prodigious quantities of meat. If it walked, crawled, could fly or swim, and could be subdued long enough to be thrown onto a grill or tossed in a pot, we ate it. I never realized how unhealthy and boring my diet was until I experienced a meal at a vegetarian restaurant in Albuquerque, New Mexico, where the amazing fat-free combinations of grains, vegetables, beans, sprouts, fruits, nuts and seeds that made me feel more healthy and alive than I ever had before.
After moving to New York, my taste for vegetarian food soon led me to Angelica's, where I indulged on the exotic yet simple cuisine of Myra Kornfeld and the other chefs who have made the corner of 2nd Avenue and 13th Street a mecca for all vegetarians.
After feeding us so well for so many years, Myra has finally shared her secrets in this wonderful book. More than a collection of recipes, the book tells us a philosophy of food and its preparation that is so enjoyable, you almost forget how healthy it is. Myra lays out the ground rules of vegan cooking in a simpler, less intimidating and more elegant way than I have ever seen before.
Myra divides her recipes into three logical sections that make using the book a pleasure. Soups and desserts are treated as separate chapters (which is smart). Everything else (entrees, side dishes, salads and accompaniments) is arranged in a series of meals that are perfectly combined (from a nutritional standpoint), complimentary (taste-wise), balanced in terms of difficulty (each menu contains one challenging and two easy-to-prepare dishes) and regional in flavor (with menus that evoke the tastes of Europe, Asia, North and South America, the Middle East and Africa). By arranging contents into meals rather than individual dishes, Myra ensures that we will always get the right result (no weird combinations). And the recipes themselves are amazing. Trust me, the African Groundnut Stew is worth the price of the book all by itself.
Add in Myra's glossary (which discusses ingredients and cooking techniques in detail), resource list, drawings and elegant writing style make this book the second most enjoyable thing about the vegan experience. The first, of course, is the food itself.

HASH(0x9f69a150) von 5 Sternen voluptuous in name only 5. Mai 2004
Von Ein Kunde - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
As a longtime vegan and cooking enthusiast, I was drawn to this book because it claimed to offer mouthwatering and "voluptuous" vegan recipes. It is indeed a very well organized cookbook and many of recipes are very creative. Unfortunately, the recipes did not meet my standards in terms of taste. Many of the main dishes are needlessly complex and take hours to make. I made the Moussaka tonight and, after hours of preparation, was disappointed with the result, which was only mediocre. This was also the case with the Mushroom, French Lentil, and Chesnut Ragu, the Shepherd's Pie, and the Mushroom Filo Triangles with Delicata-Porcini Sauce. I've found the simpler dishes, such as the African Groundnut Stew, the Succotash, and the Broccoli Rabe Polenta, to be more satisfying. I have avoided making most of the Latin-themed recipes (and there are quite a few) because they call for too many types of chilis. The Chili and Corn-biscuit Casserole, for example, requires three types of chilis; this seems unreasonable.
This is not a book for a half-hearted cook who is not prepared to spend a lot of time in the kitchen. This book may be useful for dinner parties, if one is planning to make the entire suggested menu, but individual dishes didn't seem strong enough on their own. For simpler, more time-efficient, and tasty dishes, I recommend The Mediterranean Vegan Kitchen.

HASH(0x9f69a054) von 5 Sternen Voluptuous indeed! 30. Oktober 2000
Von M. Woinoski - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
I attended a book signing and dessert tasting hosted by Ms. Kornfeld at a local bookstore this past weekend. Her desserts are amazing! Rich, delicious, sinful; you'd never know they're made without dairy or eggs. I tried the Chocolate Coconut cake, the Chocolate Mousse cake, Apple Spice Streusel, and the Peanut Butter Mousse cake; all were eye-rolling good. The main courses also look delicious. The book is nicely laid out and the recipes explained in enough detail that you don't need to be a professional chef to understand them. Even if you're not a vegan, you'll love this food.
