Does any one know anything about this book, by Miquel Larcher? I think it looks really nice, from what I can see, but I need to get a bit pickier about which cookbooks I purchase.

I just ordered this thanks to reading your post, PoesiePie. I think it looks really good, too. I'll post here again once I have the book and have tried out a few recipes.

I did too, online that is. Boy, what a disappointment this book is in person! Despite being rather pricey, Three Olives and a Dash of the Sea, a paperback, is a VERY small book. More importantly, I think many of its recipes look to be pretty underwhelming. The book's author is a trained chef so I guess I expected more. In fairness, I have not made anything from Three Olives, but, where I have some really great vegan cookbooks, its pretty clear this doesn't add anything to what I already own. Though I have never returned a book I purchased online because of dissatisfaction with its content, I am doing exactly that with this one.

The reason the book is expensive is because Tate is a vanity press / scam that touts itself as a Christian business while ripping off authors. They charge around $5000 to publish a book.
