Eat Out, Stay in: Gourmet Plant-Based Dishes for the Home Chef
by Suzannah Gerber
From acclaimed executive chef Suzannah Gerber comes a comprehensive guide for cooking restaurant-quality plant-based dishes at home.
To the initiated, plant-based meals can be a cornucopia of colors, shapes, textures, and mouth-watering flavors--a source of boundless opportunities for creativity in the kitchen and for using new and familiar ingredients to further a passion for cooking. They're also the most nutritious foods you can eat, with endless scientifically-proven benefits to your health, energy, and physique, and a feel-good way to contribute to preserving the environment and supporting animal welfare. But while there is a saturation of guides to making vegan "comfort foods," as if to prove vegan food can be as unhealthy as "the regular kind," or the extreme opposite: overly simple, bland, four-ingredient "health dishes." In In Eat In, Stay Out, chef Suzannah Gerber, "Chef Suzi," famous plant-based gourmet, says foodies can enjoy vegan cuisine too!
Eat In, Stay Out has more than one hundred original recipes for vegans or the veg-curious to create five-star restaurant quality dishes at home. Inside are recipes for an amazing night-in without forgoing a high-quality meal. Many fabulous vegan restaurants and Instagram feeds have emerged to demonstrate the capabilities of vegan cuisine, and now high-end vegan dishes can be available in your home regardless of how far the nearest vegan-friendly metropolis is! So no need for a reservation, ditch the questionable take-out, and enjoy the process of cooking--and eating!--something that will dazzle even your most skeptical friends and family.
Among the dishes featured inside are dinners and brunches, hors d'oeuvres and desserts, meals for a wonderful night in by yourself, a date night, or entertaining--items like paellas, vegan sushis, as well as gourmet classics such as confit.
