Item Description...
When people ask Tanya Petrovna, "Are you a strict vegetarian?" she replies, "No, I'm a fun vegetarian!" As head chef of the popular Native Foods chain of restaurants in Southern California, Tanya treats her customers to a vegan cuisine that is so tasty, satisfying, and hearty that it draws praise from nonvegetarians and vegetarians alike. Tanya is known for creating delicious and satisfying meat substitutes from soy and wheat products such as tofu, tempeh, and seitan. And with signature dishes like her dairy-free cheesecake made from cashew nuts, she proves that healthy, animal-friendly eating can be indulgent and fun.

Now, with this book, Tanya's best recipes can be made at home, including: "Fun Mung Curry," "Seitan Olé Mole," and "Rockin' Moroccan Skewers." Plus, there are plenty of outrageous desserts such as "Elephant Chocolate Cake with Cinnamon Peanut Butter Topping," "Sam's Vegan Cheesecake," and "Chocolate French Silk Lingerie Pie."

The Native Foods Restaurant Cookbook also features instructions on basic cooking methods, helpful definitions, nutritional information, and a simple kitchen pantry setup.
"The recipes are wonderful. Each one has a twist—a surprising ingredient or presentation that lifts it out of the ordinary. . . . If you want to share your vegan enthusiasm with the rest of the world, this cookbook belongs on your shelf."—Veg News

"What I especially appreciate here is the lavish use of a very rare ingredient: joy. It's expressed in the goofy sense of humor, the energy, and the apparently limitless enthusiasm that accompanies Tanya in her mission to get everyone to eat well without eating a bite of anything to do with animals."—from the foreword by Deborah Madison, author of Vegetarian Cooking for Everyone and Local Flavors

"Tanya's broad range of recipes have panache and soul, yet they are remarkably simple. Anyone who is looking to improve their diet and/or the planet will find her cookbook indispensable."—Didi Emmons, author of Vegetarian Planet and Entertaining for a Veggie Planet

The best vegan cookbook ever!!!!  Jun 25, 2008
This is simply the best vegan cookbook I have ever bought. I learned about this book when I visited their resturant in Orange County, CA, I live an hour and a half from them and I still manage to eat there twice a month! I was so excited to see that they had a cookbook. Not only are the recipes amazing, but the education about vegan product is very helpful. There is no preaching and even my meat eater husband loves everything I have prepared from the book. Wonderful book!!!!

Seriously Great   Mar 11, 2008
I own a broad and varied range of cookbooks, but this one absolutely rates as my #1 Five-Star favorite.
You may not think of a cookbook as being a 'good read', but I thoroughly enjoyed reading this one front to back. The author, Tanya Petrovna, writes with an engaging style that is truly gracious and respectful toward the subject of healthful cookery, while also imparting a charming wit and humor throughout.
Her recipes are, in my opinion, fan(that's me)tastic. Seriously great! They are presented with simplicity and are easy to read, while her anecdotes are neatly placed off to the side where they won't interfere or distract you while cooking.
My advice is - Buy it, You'll like it.

Interesting Cookbook  Feb 8, 2008
I haven't tried many of the recipes yet but it did bring me to the actual restaurant in Palm Springs! I had a very enjoyable meal and will try some of the recipes, but have to leave out any oils...I specially want to try her seitan recipe after eating some there in the sandwich!
Not for the beginner  May 25, 2007
If you've been a vegetarian or vegan for a while this is probably a good resource. For a beginner, however, it's just too much and the recipes are too involved. Also, many of the recipes require the use of other recipes in the book, and we simply don't have three hours to prepare a meal every night.

My recommendation would be to check it out at a local bookstore (like Barnes & Noble) before you buy it. Had I done this, I wouldn't have bought it.
Healthy Eating Can be Fun!  Aug 24, 2006

Ana Nez Heatherley comes from a long family line of herbalists. She is a registered nurse, speaks regularly on the topic of traditional herbal medicine, and has written for the highly credited magazine Mother Earth News.

Her book "Healing Plants: A Medicinal Guide to Native North American Plants and Herbs" is an excellent addition to any library, but especially for anyone interested in traditional and herbal medicine. Heatherley explores approximately one hundred plants and herbs common to North America. Though some information here may be redundant to a seasoned herbalist, there is a number of herbs that you don't see in the typical books of this genre - such as Buttonbush, Catalpa, and Prairie tea. I actually don't remember seeing Prairie tea mentioned anywhere else, let alone with a picture as included in Heatherley's book. Impressive!

Heatherley includes distribution maps, bullet-point side bars, and photo section containing a picture for every plant. This combined with practical applications, interesting folklore, tips, cautions, recipes, and more, round out this informative and interesting book.

I have a very large library of herbal books and it takes a lot to impress me these day - unfortunately, many simply repeat the same information. "Healing Plants" was an unsuspected surprise! Heatherley provides a slightly new perspective on the commonly known medicinal plants, and an impressive account of many not-so-well-known plants that deserve their day in the spotlight.
