Product Description

You name 'em, he's fed 'em. Tal Ronnen is no up-and-comer-he has long since arrived and taken over the culinary world...

Revolutionary chef Tal Ronnen arrives with The Conscious Cook—his first full-color cookbook, a satisfying solution to every omnivore’s dilemma. A former meat-eater who found himself unfulfilled by standard vegan fare, Ronnen set out to create his own diverse menu of hardy, delicious vegetarian dishes that the finest restaurants would be honored to serve…and any food lover would love to eat! As a result, The Conscious Cook is loaded with healthy, delicious, and supremely gratifying meatless recipes that even carnivores will want to sink their teeth into—a treasure trove of fine, healthy dining from the master chef who has reinvented vegan cooking.

A former steak lover himself, Chef Tal struggled for years on a vegan diet that left him hungry and filled with cravings for butter and meat. By applying traditional French culinary techniques to meatless cuisine, he found that he could gratify his cravings for rich flavor and fat.

The Conscious Cook shows readers that avoiding the health risks and ethical dilemmas of eating meat and dairy does not mean sacrificing taste and appetite. This is not a cookbook of sprouts and tofu burgers, but of mouth-watering, hearty meals that keep the protein at the center of your plate. Featuring 75 original recipes that will satisfy the fussiest foodies and the most dedicated of carnivores, The Conscious Cook is a breakthrough in meatless cuisine that will revolutionize the way readers experience food.
