When How It All Vegan!: Irresistible Recipes for an Animal-Free Diet was published in 1999, authors Tanya Barnard and Sarah Kramer were hailed for their fun and outlandish approach to vegan cooking, taking it out of the realm of the staid and the boring to create truly original animal-free dishes. How It All Vegan! was a Book Sense 76 selection and has sold 50,000 copies to date.
The Garden of Vegan: How It All Vegan Again! picks up where the first book left off. Tanya and Sarah, vegan chefs extraordinaire, have created truly delectable, truly original new recipes that manage to leave the animal products (including butter, milk, cheese and honey) where they belong, with their natural owners.

At the same time, they are fun and easy to prepare, even for those of us who find boiling water a challenge.
Whether you’re a full-time vegan or just interested in creating fabulous animal-free meals, The Garden of -Vegan will lead you into temptation with its inspiring -array of vegan goodies. So skip that steak and forget that fish. It’s time to discover how it all vegan, again!

Tanya Barnard and Sarah Kramer appear to be mild mannered vegans, but when the two of them get together, they become mighty Vegan Warriors, writing cookbooks and kicking vegan ass! They live in Victoria, Canada.
In the ten years since How It All Vegan! was first published, however, veganism has "come out of the closet," and is now considered a legitimate diet and lifestyle not only for those wishing to improve their health, but also for those who care deeply about the welfare of animals. This tenth-anniversary edition includes a new color photo section and new recipes; it also includes a new introduction by co-author Sarah Kramer, who speaks personally and passionately about the impact of veganism on her life over the past decade.
Sarah returns with her first solo cookbook, featuring more of the delectable, easy-to-prepare recipes that vegans around the world have come to adore. For Sarah, vegan cooking—which eschews all animal products, including butter, milk, and cheese—can be an adventure in dining, without a lot of investment in time or money. In fact, most of the recipes in La Dolce Vegan! can be prepared in 20 to 30 minutes or less. From soups and salads to entrees and desserts, they are sure to inspire both committed and part-time vegans alike.
At the heart of the book is Sarah’s wholehearted commitment to the vegan lifestyle that has changed her life completely—from a childhood plagued with health problems to an adulthood filled with the pleasures and joys of living vegan. For Sarah, an animal-free diet will make you happier, healthier, and more content with the world around you.
In addition to the wonderful recipes, there is a fun do-it-yourself section of vegan tips and non-food items. Learn to live the sweet life of veganism and you’ll never look back!
Recipes include: Beauty and the Beet Borscht, Mocked Clam Chowder, Roasted Cherry Tomato Pasta, Sloppy Janes, Blessed Broccoli Stir-Fry, Apple Pie Pancakes, Carob Almond Truffles, and Tomato Soup Cake.
