I wonder if it has any good potato recipes. Vegan with a Vengeance does.

from what i gathered on the book's amazon page discussion posts, the author(s) and book are not english, and someone else (the publisher seems to deny doing it) basically renamed it instead of doing a direct translation (someone said the original title would translate to something like "vegetarian delights"). so, i feel bad for the author. the publisher, who has made multiple posts on the amazon page, definitely come off as self righteous, unapologetic tools.

Sorry to bump this thread again; I just realized I actually have this exact book in it's original Danish, and yeah, it's called 'Vegetarisk Vellyst' which literally translates to 'Vegetarian Pleasures/Delights'. The book itself is actually really lovely and has great pictures, so it's too bad the publisher had to be a cork.

Curly fries are the best! But I've been afraid that maybe they were doing something not vegan to make them. Are curly fries about as vegan as regular fries?

No, they curl them by capturing a tiger and forcing her to coil the potatoes in her paws.

I'm glad my tea has become too cold to drink, or else I would be doing this too. But as it is I'm just laughing really hard.

There was something from the book in this month's Vegetarian Living - maybe something about vegetarian sandwich ideas? About 95% of them were cheese or egg I think, I only skimmed it.
