I love my American cookbooks, but I like having European ones as well. The recipes often feel more 'familiar' or 'old school' for me. I grew up on stamppot rather than mac&cheese. During our holiday in Germany I bought the book Hier & Jetz Vegan by Björn Moschinski. I haven't made anything from it yet, but the pictures of the desserts really tug at my heartstrings. I'd like to get more German cookbooks, maybe with some hearty dinner recipes in them, cause this book is a bit lacking in that department. It also uses a lot of store-bought meat and dairy alternatives like soy chicken and vegan whipping cream.

I'd love to read reviews of German vegan cookbooks to get an idea of what other books I could get. Suggestions for blogs are very welcome too. I already found a few (seitan is my motor, laubfresser, veganitäten, veganpassion), but I can always use more.

Recently so, so many German vegan cookbooks came out! Shame on me for not having bought any of them yet. The next one on my list isJosita Hartano's new book.She has a really great restaurant in Berlin.

Thanks Mihl! Looks like I've got some reading up to do :-)

I thought "vegan genial" was really boring. But I dont like the restaurant either, so...

I got "La Veganista" for free and that is nice and pretty German traditional, but with a bit less store-bought meat alternative stuff.

I love "Cucina vegana" but it has no photos. The publisher has lots of great vegan cookbooks but none have any pictures, so that's a bummer.

duh, cucina vegan is obviously italian vegan food, so not what you're looking for if you want German-ish recipes.

Awesome! I was having a look at Hier und Jetz Vegan online the other day but I thought that it seemed a bit basic. I thought it would be perfect if the people behind Kopps released a cookbook, but the Lucky Leek is my second favourite so that will do nicely. The food was all really creative when I was there so I think this one will be right up my alley.

La Veganista looks really cute and sounds promising too, I might pick that one up next pay.

I bought Josita Hartano's 2nd book "vegan schnell schnell: genial einfach - einfach genial " does anyone else have it?

so far, it seems weird to have so many non-full meals in a book that is all about fast cooking.

The ones I have and would recommend (I have some others as well but these I've found I use most)

"Paperbacks"
Kaffeklatsch vegan - Isabell Keller - ISBN 978-3-8304-8029-7
Lovely dessert and cake recipes (75 in all) even if it feels very much like "how to use pudding powder in nearly every recipe". Good tasting recipes though - and you can make your own more healthy pudding powder by mixing brown rice flour and some others instead. The one minus is that not every recipe has a picture - and some of the pictures are a bit misleading.

Vegan backen - Nicole Just - ISBN 978-3-8338-3337-3
Another book from Nicole Just - this one focusing on baking recipes. Lovely pictures (as in most GU books), really good recipes! From cookies to some bread recipes you get 40 great recipes. I really recommend this one!

"Kindles"
Vegan kochen fuer alle - Björn Moschinski - ISBN 978-3517087771
Some really great recipes in this - one drawback is a lack of pictures

McVeg - 80 vegane Schnellgerichte - Gabriele Lendle - ISBN 978-3830468370
Some really great recipes but unfortunately also some misses. And too many "sandwich spreads" and the like - I'd rather have had more real meals in there even if they wouldn't fit the "really fast" category. Great idea for a cookbook though - use at most 3 pantry items, 3 fresh produce and 3 spices. One of the best recipes is the one for pasta with carrots and peanut butter IMHO.

Vegan = einfach = lecker - Silvia Graf - ISBN 9783730935446
99 recipes which work. Not all have pictures though.

Einfache Familienkueche - vegan sojafrei - Stefanie Beis - ISBN 978-3732286942
A great collection of rather easy and rather cheap recipes without soy! I would love more pictures in this one though ...
Also here a bit too much "sandwich spreads" and the like but it does have others as well. Great for beginners but rather thin for more experienced cooks.


And a bunch of small dessert-and-cake-heavy cookbooks from the Nauman & Göbel publisher (check on amazon for the current titles) . They contain great pictures and some variety of recipes but are of course not as versatile as the other books listed above.

Two books I'd love to get my hands on are the "Schmatz"-cookbooks dealing with veganized versions of some of the greatest hits in Austrian Cuisine. The first one is sold out, the second one (Schmatz 2 - Vegane Hausmannskost für GenießerInnen by Christine & Inge Braun) hard to get it seems outside of the german speaking countries (unless you pay a LOT more for shipping!). I've only read positive reviews of them so far - and I fondly remember my Austrian grandmother's cooking ...

Does the ebook of Vegan kochen für alle have no pictures? The hardcover one does.
