This is a fun and good cookbook. Unfortunately how can it be calling itself a vegan cookbook when it calls for animal products? (a whole range of bee products) I'm hesistant to give this otherwise good cookbook to my friends and family as gifts because I don't want to mislead them into believing that eating bee products is okay for a vegan diet. And wouldn't it be quite crazy if they got the book, thought vegans can eat bee stuff, and then buy or cook me things that contain bee products? I'm vegan because I don't believe animals are on earth just to be or produce meals for me. My, and other vegans', compassion extends to the largest of creatures to the smallest. It's hard enough for vegans to get our message across that animals are not ours to exploit, now we have a cookbook that dilutes and misleads our message? How ridiculous. If the book was called "vegetarian" I wouldn't be so upset. If the authors wish to call a book vegan, then it should be vegan; don't call it "vegan" because it's supposedly "in" to be vegan nowadays. Sure, some "vegans" call themselves vegan but eat honey, but keep in mind that those people are healthnuts who have stolen the term. (Just like people who eat fish and/or chicken call themselves "vegetarian" because they don't eat red meat simply because it's "in" to be vegetarian or that they simply don't have a name for themselves.) Veganism is a lifestyle which seeks to end support for animal suffering and exploitation; it is not only a diet. People who simply does not eat flesh, eggs, and dairy products should just call themselves vegetarians. As such, the cookbook should have been called vegetarian, NOT vegan.
