Now in paperback, the New York Times bestseller that makes healthful, conscious cooking easy, from Ellen DeGeneres's personal chef.
Martin, a Culinary Institute of America-trained chef, explains, "What Ellen, Portia, and I learned together was that vegan food is no different than any other cuisine. Flavors that work in nonvegan meals work on vegan dishes just as well; you just have to rely less on the specific ingredients of a recipe and more on the technique....What I have done in this book is to gather recipes that anyone, carnivore, vegetarian, or vegan-would love."
Some of the standouts Martin has developed for Ellen and Portia include: Banana and Oatmeal Pancakes, Avocado Reuben, Red Beans and Rice, "Chick 'n' Pot Pie," and Chocolate Cheesecake. Featuring mouthwatering photographs by Quentin Bacon, this cookbook will appeal to die-hard carnivores and vegetarians alike.
Roberto Martin grew up in a Mexican-American family of 15. While in college he worked in a restaurant, fell in love with cooking and attended the Culinary Institute of America. He became a personal chef to celebrities, and has focussed on nutrition and health. Now he cooks exclusively vegan meals for Ellen DeGeneres and Portia de Rossi. He appears frequently on The Ellen DeGeneres Show and on the show's website.
