Thirty sumptuous menus offering everything you need to give your friends and family a taste of how other vegetarians eat.
Despite the Western diet high in meat and dairy products, much of the rest of the world has traditionally followed a primarily or entirely vegetarian diet. Tragically, there has been a dramatic transition in the latter as world meat production has increased about 10 times the world population growth rate in just a few decades. I have witnessed the transition to a diet high in animal products in places as beautiful as Micronesia and sub-Saharan Africa, where diseases such as diabetes and heart disease have just begun to rear their ugly heads. This grave trend also multiplies the devastating consequences for the environment worldwide and for the countless billions of animals killed each year for food-10 billion land animals and 10 billion sea animals in the United States alone. Many of us wonder what steps we can take to make a difference in the world. Here, the answer is simple. Following a vegan diet is the first and foremost step to improve the condition of the environment, human health, and the lives of animals. Around the World Vegan Style tells you how and why. Hope Ferdowsian, M.D., M.P.H. In Around the World Vegan Style, Nancy Robinson unites all people of the globe through a single common bond- the love of delicious food! In its pages you'll find authentic recipes all free of animal products and featuring chefs' specialties, all sure to please your palate and increase your appreciation for global cuisine. Let Around the World Vegan Style turn your kitchen into a travel adventure for your tongue, while healthfully nourishing yourself, your family, and friends. Welcome aboard. The journey to worldwide taste delights starts here! Michael Klaper, M.D. Author: Vegan Nutrition: Pure and Simple Nancy Robinson's cookbook could not come at a better time. The whole world is beginning to realize that animal agriculture-a major source of water pollution and deforestation-is one of the biggest culprits in global warming. The 2007 United Nations report shows that farmed animals are a top contributor to today's serious environmental problems, including greenhouse gases. The global increase in meat consumption also causes rates of obesity, diabetes, heart disease, and other diet-related illnesses to soar. If we're going to reverse the damage we've done to our health and the environment, we have to begin now. Around the World Vegan Style is a step in that direction. Patrice Green, M.D., J.D. Assistant Professor, University of Maryland School of Medicine Faculty Member, Union Memorial Hospital Internal Medicine Fellow, American College of Legal Medicine There is just food and the land to grow that food. If we can all just realize this simple fact for one moment, and stop fighting over the land that holds the roots that support the tree that bears the fruit that feeds the child, then maybe, just maybe...peace. Around the World Vegan Style is more than a cookbook. Nancy Robinson shares how the vegan lifestyle embraces all facets of just food for all life. George Eisman, Registered Dietition, Teacher, and Clinician Author, The Most Noble Diet I'm delighted to recommend Around the World Vegan Style. Nancy Robinson's cooking is out of this world. Luckily, her superb recipes from around the world are right here in this book. Nancy combines exquisite flavors with the most sumptuous dining experience. There is just one thing to do-dig in and enjoy! Karen Davis, PhD, President, United Poultry Concerns Author, Prisoned Chickens, Poisoned Eggs: An Inside Look at the Modern Poultry Industry

Each vegetable is given a thorough description, including its traditions, stories, cultivation, where to source seeds and plants, and how to propagate it. There is also a sprinkling of recipes inspired by local gastronomy. This adventure in climate-friendly vegetable growing is interesting to both traditional vegetable and ornamental gardeners, as well as people interested in permaculture, forest gardening, foraging and ethnobotany.
