Review: Non Dairy Evolution Cookbook

22 Jul

The Non Dairy Evolution Cookbook by Skye Michael Conroy has become one of my favorite cookbooks in my kitchen.  I rarely use cookbooks; I’m a self-admitted splash-of-this and pinch-of-that cook. However, I am constantly pulling out this one.

Everyone always says giving up cheese is the hardest part of going vegan – if I had had this book years ago, it never would have even been a question. I remember discovering Daiya, and the excitement of having “real cheese” again. I think Skye’s cheeses far surpass Daiya, although Chao is still a pretty serious contender. While I’d love to share recipes, I’m respecting the author’s wishes that people will purchase the book if interested. Here’s a link!!

    Are you still making those cheeses or sticking with your aquafaba cheese recipes now?

      I alternate back and forth depending on the dish, I feel that both have their positives!

    I’m interested in purchasing this cookbook. Do many recipes call for the use of specialized kitchen equipment or odd ingredients?

      A few odd ingredients that can be purchased on Amazon, but no specialized ingredients!

      No Specialized kitchen equipment, sorry!
