I'm going on a cookbook spree because I've saved up some spending money and it's my birthday month...OKAY? I stumbled across so many strange vegan cookbooks on book depository. One is called "Vegans Are Cool" which we already know. And there is another called "Vegan as fork" and one just about waffles.

Remember when it was just Christina Pirello on PBS and Crescent Dragonwagon?

Yes I do. And don't forget Mollie Katzen and her love of dill.

A book just about waffles sounds cool actually. Unless it's a Kindle with recipes copied from other books without authorization.

I'm happy every time I go to Barnes and Noble and a whole bookshelf is devoted to Vegan Cookbooks. It used to just be one row under Dietary Cookbooks, and then it was an endcap, and now, a whole shelf. We are taking over!

What I don't like is when vegan books are in a section together with the vegetarian, paleo, gluten-free, allergy and all other special-diet cookbooks.

Yesssssssssssssssss! I never got too into her huge vegan cookbook but I still use her soup book all the time (very easy to veganize the fork out of; contains my favorite biscuit recipe ever).

The other day I was at the bookstore and this woman was sitting on a bench in the cookbook section, with books spread out all around her, intently reading one. She was totes reading Isa Does It, and all the books around her were vegan cookbooks. It was like playing books I own and love bingo. But it was kind of incredible just to see that there are that many vegan cookbooks available in one single bookstore.

(I should have talked to her. I might be the worst vegan.)

Did she do a vegan cookbook? I know she spent years writing The Passionate Vegetarian, which is huge, but it isn't vegan.

Katzen was never vegan, at least not in the early days. I'm not familiar with her more recent work because I was never a fan. When I think back to my early vegetarian days, the book that EVERYONE had was Laurel's Kitchen. If you wanted anything vegan, it was the Seventh-Day Adventists you turned to. Oh, and the classic *not-quite* vegan tome from the sixties - Ten Talents (which I still have!).

.


That's the one I'm thinking of! I had thought it was vegan but that the title had "Vegetarian" to be less threatening in much the same way that some of Robin Robertson's earlier vegan books had "Vegetarian" in the names. I stand corrected.

Oh man! Remember when having "vegan" in the title made a book like kinda automatically scary to most people?

I remember back when I wasn't vegan and my then-boyfriend-now-husband was, and the only cookbook I could find for him was How It All Vegan. Now vegans have several books just for ice cream!

When I first went veg I had laurel's kitchen. It was a big part of why I decided to try to become a vegetarian. I loved the Mollie Katzen books and I learned a lot about cooking trying those out. Then when I first went vegan the only things I could find were Simply Vegan by D Wasserman and Soy Not Oi! Really, that was it.

Eta: I think this is why I hoard all the vegan cookbooks now.

My first vegan book was "In the Garden of Vegan" by Sarah Kramer and Tanya Barnard. I bought it after reading Mad Cowboy one summer. After that I got Vegan with a Vengeance and started learning how to cook. It was awesome.

I didn't get the Vegan Vampire Vaginas book, sadly.

Don't forget Louise Halger's cookbooks -- Tofu Cookery and The Farm Vegetarian Cookbook; I believe they were both vegan despite the title of the latter.

When I went vegan in 1988, the only cookbooks I could find were The American Vegetarian Cookbook and The New Farm Vegetarian Cookbook (both vegan). If you told me one day I'd have a whole bookcase full of cookbooks with the word vegan ACTUALLY IN THE TITLE, I don't think I could have wrapped my head around it.

I forgot The American Vegetarian Cookbook by Marilyn Diamond! I still have that on my bookshelf for one of the salad dressings and for the melon smoothie.
