Exactly this. I was initially excited about it, because who doesn't want more breakfast and lunch recipes? As it is, it just seems like a way to cash in by slapping the word "vegan" on the cover without having to actually be that drastic.

I like the concept, in theory, because anything that gives vegan food wider appeal and recognition is a good thing, but sticking chicken recipes (or whatever it has; I didn't bother to investigate once I heard) in your vegan cookbook totally undoes that.

But VB6 (if that's the one you are talking about-- the cookbook isn't yet out) is not a vegan book and Bittman has never presented it as one. His concept is that it's easier to stick to any kind of healthy diet if you don't have to follow it throughout the entire day. And although I eat vegan 24 hours a day and have for nearly 20 years, I tried to follow his vegetable-heavy vegan recipes for breakfast and lunch, and eat the way I normally do (allowing white flour, vegan desserts, processed foods like gardein and daiya products, etc.) in moderation and only after 6 PM. I found that I felt much healthier when I did this, and it was a lot easier to stick to than if I'd tried to limit those less-healthy foods all day long. I simply don't have the resolve for the latter, so I don't see why it's not possible for others to experience that same challenge with attempts to go vegan. One of the things he says in VB6 is that once you start following a vegan diet before 6, you'll find yourself often wanting to eat vegan after 6, too.

Sure, but how do non-vegan dinner recipes support his vegan before 6 philosophy? Bittman has a gazillion and one other books if you want his omni recipes. I'm assuming that anybody buying VB6 is looking for vegan before 6 guidance and recipes.

I don't think it's a philosophy so much as a dietary approach. Bittman got a lot healthier since he started following this diet and friends started following it after seeing this. People kept asking him what he was doing so eventually he started writing about it and sharing the way he was eating. He doesn't pretend to be doing this for animal rights reasons.

As for buyers, I expect some are buying it to get healthier and others just purchase because they like Bittman's cooking? I wouldn't be surprised if some of Bittman's longtime readers buy it mainly for the dinner recipes but then give some of vegan lunch and breakfast recipes a try as well.

I just read the intro and I'm of two minds. He articulately explains how his experience with food writing and recipe creation made him realize that you can't think about food so much without thinking about the politics, environmental, and health aspects surrounding food, but his only reason for not eating vegan after 6 is because he wants to be a "free man" and justifies it because dinner is when you want to drink and socialize with your friends (essentially, to be normal). I expect this book to reach a wide omni audience, and it's kind of lame that he's giving everyone a free pass to indulge in meat in the evenings, however MAYBE the vegan recipes are good enough that people who have heads on their shoulders that are not Mark Bittman's will realize that they can do it full-time, or become interested enough in vegan cooking that they seek out other books/restaurants/websites. Regardless, I think it's a good thing that a revelled food writer is slapping the word vegan on his book. I use How to Cook Everything Vegetarian a lot and respect him as a writer.

Didn't someone ask for a spicy vegan cookbook in the cookbook request thread?

I also spotted Vegan Ice Cream. Apparently it's an update of Vice Cream, with 90 new recipes.

It's not vegan as far as I know, but the best book title goes to Keep Calm and Veg.

For those who enjoy the 30-Minute Vegan series, there will be one about soups:
The 30-Minute Vegan: Soup's On!: More than 100 Quick and Easy Recipes for Every Season

Afro-vegan has a nice cover. I wonder whether it will be nearly authentic or very fusion.

Has anyone mentioned Carla (Quick and Easy Vegan Bake Sale) Kelly's new book "Vegan al Fresco"?
It comes out 4/15/2014.
I was a tester for it, and it's a winner.
Everything I tried was really good. Muffins, salads...things for picnics or just lunch.
A favorite was a hominy cabbage salad.
Sadly, I threw away my testing recipes, so really looking forward to a hard copy.

Better than Vegan looks interesting.

I went to look at other vegan books,
Jazzy Vegetarian Classics looks interesting but it has one of my pet peeves in that some of the recipes call for "vegan cheese"
http://www.amazon.com/Jazzy-Vegetarian- ... 937856933/

Pulse (non-vegetarian) looks interesting but I'd have to see the recipes first
http://www.amazon.com/Pulse-Recipes-Chi ... 862059861/

The Cheesy Vegan looks good but again, I'd have to see the recipes
http://www.amazon.com/Cheesy-Vegan-Plan ... 738216798/

Vegan cooking for Carnivores
http://www.amazon.com/Vegan-Cooking-Car ... 609412419/

Straight from the Earth
http://www.amazon.com/Straight-Earth-Ir ... 45211269X/

And of course Afro Vegan!! which I think also already been mentioned
http://www.amazon.com/Afro-Vegan-Farm-F ... 607745313/

Sounds interesting, I like Carla's other books. I'm off to check BD and see if I can pre-order.

tami and celine's book sounds great. esp since the disclosure about no fake meat, mayo, or cheeze. although admittedly, i ♥ vegenaise and i make my own seitan sausages so i don't have probs with either of those.

terri's book sounds great too. i don't mind long ingredient lists, but i hope the recipes aren't too fussy though

Oh, I was thinking it was a new print of Silk Road Cooking. I have Silk Road Cooking which is a beautiful book, although I think I've only made 1 recipe from it. If this is a different one, I'll keep my eye on it.
