It's not that I can't
make the recipes, I cook very well and I'm sure the food would be delicious. It's that some of the recipes take hours to make, have a list of ingredients a mile long (some of them quite exotic), use tons of pots/pans to make, and some of them, well - they remind me of some snooty, sauce laden food I might find in a 4 star French restaurant.
It's not a slight against the book, it's just a preference. I'm in the midwest, I like hearty, stick to your ribs, comfort food. I will say, Isa/Terry's books have really legitimized vegan cuisine and shown the world that anything is possible without using animal ingredients.
I did note that the recipes you like the best from VWAV were amongst the most simple too, though. Just about every vegan cookbook written has a pancake, french toast, pizza crust, muffin, and/or french fry recipe, no?
