A former steak lover himself, Chef Tal struggled for years on a vegan diet that left him hungry and filled with cravings for butter and meat. By applying traditional French culinary techniques to meatless cuisine, he found that he could gratify his cravings for rich flavor and fat.
The Conscious Cook shows readers that avoiding the health risks and ethical dilemmas of eating meat and dairy does not mean sacrificing taste and appetite. This is not a cookbook of sprouts and tofu burgers, but of mouth-watering, hearty meals that keep the protein at the center of your plate. Featuring 75 original recipes that will satisfy the fussiest foodies and the most dedicated of carnivores, The Conscious Cook is a breakthrough in meatless cuisine that will revolutionize the way readers experience food.
Chef Tal Ronnen is now a happy vegan, but he remembers what it was like when he was a carnivore, and his connection to good food and good cooking are related to that. In THE CONSCIOUS COOK, Ronnen has put his best culinary skills toward resolving the issue of how to cook to please a vegan and satisfy a carnivore. He presents 75 recipes that follow vegan principles--no meat, no dairy--and which, using French cooking techniques, are hearty and tasty, and which he would serve at his restaurant or at home.
