You may not be familiar with Attila Hildmann, the self-made vegan chef from Germany. But his books have become quite popular in Europe, and are now available in English on our shores. And that’s a good thing. Why? Americans already know that a vegan diet can be healthy, low in fat, and cholesterol-free. But what’s missing from that picture is that sense of fun and variety we’ve come to expect from our food. That’s what makes Hildmann’s Vegan for Fun a much-needed book, showing how vegan cuisine is more than brown rice and bean sprouts. At almost 200 pages, Vegan for Fun offers a wide range of inventive meals for every time of day, from small plates to sandwiches to entrées to desserts. The book makes a worthy resource for anybody exploring veganism, trying to create a vegan-friendly dish to accommodate a guest, or even those just trying to cut down on meat consumption a bit. Doubt veganism can be fun? We dare you to flip through this book’s many attractive color photos and not crack the teeniest, tastiest smile.
