Jenn Shagrin did.
My dear friend Luka gave me a copy of Jenn's new vegan cookbook Veganize This! where she attempts to "veganize the seemingly impossible." The book has so many fantastic sounding recipes I don't even know where to start. There's Vegan Quattro Formaggio White Truffle Macaroni and Cheese, Vegan Pancetta, Bourbon Buffalo Mole Chicken Wings with Vegan Blue Cheese-Avocado Oil Aiol…and, of course, the aforementioned Vegan Twinkies.
Peppered throughout the book are funny anecdotes from Jenn's life and stories abut how the recipes came about. She, also, doles out some pretty sage advice: "As vegans, we all know how many times the ingredient list for dishes at a restaurant can feel like just one giant no…So unless you want to get stuck with a sprig of basil on a plate, take matters into your own hands instead and play by your own damn rules!"
Jenn's book makes you feel like you are cooking with your smart, hilarious friend who knows how to turn everything into a good time. I, mean, how can you not love a girl who titled one of her chapters "Recipes to Get You Laid"???
Thanks for the fabulous book Luka!!! I will have you over for some of Jenn's Cumin and Avocado Oil-Rubbed Portobello Tortas with Dragon Fruit Pico De Gallo and Purple Basil-White Peppercorn Mayo.
With a side of her Vegan Doritos of course.
