This is the anti-vegan cookbook for vegans. Almost every vegetarian and vegan cookbook focuses on the whole wheat/kefir/green cleanse/salt lamp/lentil aspect of living a cruelty-free diet. But what about those of us who actually dream of a greasy burger all day and all night, but simply can’t justify eating animal products? Or those of us who just wanted to opt out of the environmentally unsustainable meat industry? Or anyone who is just keen to broaden their culinary horizons and dip a toe in the waters of veganism? Like author Zacchary Bird. If you see and taste the world the same way as Zac, then this is the cookbook for you.
Inside this epic volume you’ll find easy-to-follow recipes for deep-fried mac ‘n’ cheese balls, jalapeno poppers, Philly faux-steak, The Big Zac (i.e. a Big Mac, reimagined and reborn), and deep-fried banana fritters.
Unlike other vegan cookbooks that you might’ve come across, this book won’t have you searching through a spice market for five hours just to find all the ingredients. These recipes are supermarket-ready and can be made by even the most novice chef. Because who said that living without meat meant that you couldn’t get greasy AF? They were wrong, and this book is (cruelty-free) proof.

Making thirst-quenchingly healthy kombucha, kefir, and natural sparkling sodas at home is easier than you probably think. This book breaks the process down step-by-step.
This simple and stunningly photographed book explains the basics of brewing your own kombucha, kefir, and natural soda – right from your very own home. Truly, this book couldn’t arrive in your life at a better time. At this crucial moment of consumer awareness, many of us are starting to make better and more informed choices about what we eat and drink – and we’re given plenty more choice than in the years gone by. The fridges of all supermarkets and corner stores are now laden with healthier options which challenge the classic selection of commercialised, sugar-filled soft drinks of our youth.
Today you’ll find anywhere a whole range of naturally low-sugar, fermented alternatives such as kombucha, switchel, and kefir – all healthy, gut-friendly drink options. These thirst-quenchers might seem too complicated to consider making yourself – but in fact, fermented drinks are much easier to create at home than you might think. That’s the thing about fermentation… You just bottle it up and wait.
This book contains forty easy-to-create drinks that will not just save you money, but will make you feel great too! Recipes in the book include kefir, kombucha, grapefruit soda, cider, switchel, and mead. You’ll be a (mocktail) mixologist in no time!
There’s been steadily growing interest and knowledge in Korean food across the globe in recent times – which can be seen reflected in the number of Korean restaurants and chains popping up. Of course, it’s helped that the cult food figure of David Chang and his Momofuko restaurants (as well as Lucky Peach magazine) have helped propel Korean flavours, techniques and classics into the mainstream. Just like some of Korea’s chilli-spiked dishes, this cuisine is very hot right now!
Not only is the food diverse and the flavours distinct, but the dishes are simple to create at home too. Little Korea contains the most popular Korean dishes eaten everyday on the streets and in homes across the nation. No kitchen gadgetry or trickery is required – this is food with a singular mission: to deliver maximum flavour and texture in a simple way.

Selber Pasta machen ist nicht schwierig. Wenn man weiss, wie es geht.
«Pasta» ist das Grundlagenwerk für hausgemachte Pasta, das auch jene Fragen klärt, die oft unbeantwortet bleiben – etwa diejenige nach dem richtigen Mehl für die verschiedenen Pastasorten: Wann braucht man Hartweizengriess, wann Dunst, was ist Farina Tipo 00…? Wie wird das Getreide angebaut, aus dem diese Mahlprodukte entstehen und wie funktioniert eine Mühle? Mit welcher Technik kann man Pastateig auch ohne Pastamaschine 0.5 mm dünn auswallen? Wie verhindert man, dass Tagliatelle beim Trocknen verkleben?
In präzisen Anleitungen in Text und Bild zeigen Slow-Food-Köchin Anna Pearson und Fotografin Catherine Pearson zunächst, wie man 30 verschiedene Pastaformen zubereitet, viele davon ohne jegliches Zubehör wie Pastamaschine etc. In 40 saisonalen Rezepten werden die gelernten Formen dann zu Klassikern der italienischen Küche und neuen Pastakreationen verarbeitet. Schliesslich führt eine Reise in die Toskana zum Ursprung der Pasta: Auf dem Biohof «Podere Il Casale» haben die beiden Autorinnen alles über eine der wichtigsten Grundzutaten, den Hartweizen, gelernt und das Erlebte und ihre Erkenntnisse für ihr Buch in einer kleinen Reportage zusammengefasst – denn zu vermitteln, wie Getreide angebaut und verarbeitet wird, ist ihnen ebenso wichtig, wie zu zeigen, wie man Orecchiette und Garganelli formt.
«Pasta» wurde 2019 mit jeweils einer Silbermedaille beim Swiss Gourmetbook Award und beim Literarischen Wettbewerb der Gastronomischen Akademie Deutschland (GAD) ausgezeichnet und hat beim Gourmand World Cookbook Award für die Schweiz in der Kategorie «Italien» gewonnen.
