The Vegan Cook’s Bible

By Pat Crocker

Cookbook author Pat Crocker is not a strict vegetarian or vegan. She regularly enjoys organic fruits, vegetables, herbs and dairy products but includes a small amount of organic lamb, chicken, beef and fish in her diet once or twice a week After nearly a year of developing and testing recipes for The Vegan Cook’s Bible (published by Robert Rose), she believes flexitarian may not suit dairy-free vegans but could be the answer to those who prefer to consume less meat. “Working on the book was a challenge for me because cooking without dairy is really difficult, but once I got into the mindset, I was thrilled to be doing it,” says the Ontario culinary herbalist and home economist who has written nine cookbooks. Her previous book, The Vegetarian Cook’s Bible, “was in response to a growing demand for really good-tasting recipes, not just for them but to appeal to everybody.” Crocker says she has noticed there are many people who might not want to become vegetarian or vegan “but they are trying to go semi-meatless.”
