Bryant Terry's Afro-Vegan cookbook is now out. Have any of you bought it? Are you planning to make anything? Post your thoughts on the recipes.

I got it! I will report back. A lot of it sounds good, I'm excited about the greens section especially.

I wasn't a big fan of Vegan Soul Kitchen, but I'm interested. Haven't bought it yet though.

I think the layout for Afro-vegan is better than Vegan Soul Kitchen. It depends on why you didn't like Vegan Soul Kitchen.

There weren't many recipes that appealed to me, and the ones that did, I felt like were too much work for the end result. It's been a while though.

I'd love to peek inside, but the preview doesn't show any recipes. The limited preview makes it appear a lovely book.

Mine shipped! I can't wait! It was my number one anticipated cookbook of '14 along with Salad Ninja. I absolutely love his books, especially The Inspired Vegan.

Book Depository e-mailed to say it's been released, I'm just waiting for them to ship it now. I bought his first book shortly after dipping my toes in veganisim, but I found it a bit scary. I was pretty okay with baking, but when I started cooking vegan I realised how poor my cooking skills actually were.
I'm hoping with some improved skills Bryant's books may be a little less intimidating now, I'm also excited as this is a bit of new world cusine for me, I know very little about African influenced cooking and food.

I'm going to an event with him next week that includes the book, so I haven't ordered it, but I'm really excited about it! Love his stuff.

I haven't posted my review yet but I shared a recipe earlier from it. It was very good:

I picked it up on Saturday. I think it looks fantastic, but I am crazy about his previous two books. It looks like the recipes might be less labor-intensive than his previous work.

That's good to hear. I like The Inspired Vegan, but I don't use it that much because the recipes just take longer than what I'm used to. Anyway, I've pre-ordered the book a while ago. I hope it will be delivered soon!

This book is so beautiful. I wish I could spend a week in isolation cooking through this. I'm excited it has some great ideas for summer cooking.

I have a review posted as well.

I really like this book, but if your concern is prep time, then you might be disappointed. As I mention in the review, his recipes are often overly intensive. This is purposeful though; the recipes are more for building community than for satisfying physical hunger.

I've also borrowed this from the library, and will probably end up buying it at some point. My first impressions are all very positive. The recipes sound delicious - a few that sound especially appealing are the slow braised mustard greens, the roasted parsnips in peach-pomegranate barbecue sauce, and the crispy teff and grit cakes with eggplant, heirloom tomatoes, and peanuts. I like the layout and organization of this book too - his last one had the recipes arranged by menus, which I'm not a fan of. This one doesn't (yay) but he keeps the history lessons and music and literature recommendations for each dish (double yay).

The only criticism, which isn't really a criticism, is that many of the dishes that sound most appealing to me are dependent on fresh produce. I only have access to most of that stuff in the summer, so it'll end up being a seasonal cookbook.
