    THE AUTHOR SCOOP

    If you had to boil the message of The Accidental Vegan down to one sentence, what would it be?
    You don't have to be a vegetarian to eat vegetarian food, just like you don't have to be Thai to eat Thai food, and you don't have to be Mexican to eat Mexican food.

    When did you know you were a writer?
    When I was in third grade one of my teachers said, "You should never start a sentence with "and," unless you're a writer." And right then and there, I decided that's what I wanted to be.

    What's the farthest you've ever traveled?
    I once traveled to a small town in Poland thinking it was the birthplace of my great grandfather, but when I got home and double checked, it turned out I'd gone to the wrong town.

    Any memorable kitchen disasters?
    I once spilled half a bucket of tahini. That's twenty pounds of tahini. There's no good way to clean up twenty pounds of tahini.

    What book do you re-read every few years?
    I re-read Isak Dinesen's Babette's Feast, and then I watch the movie again, because it's every bit as good as the original story.

    What are you working on now?
    I'm working on a book called Honest Food: A History of Eating Well. It's an account of the relationship between humans and food, from Paleolithic times until the present day.
    Eating vegan doesn't have to be hard. These days, home cooks are seeking out simple recipes that unite hearty, satisfying taste with the perks of vegan food--it's healthy, fresh, economical, lactose-free, ethical, and environmentally sustainable. Omnivorous chef Devra Gartenstein accidentally fell into the vegan world more than ten years ago, and she stuck around for the benefits to her body, her tastebuds, and the world around her. Never one to fuss in the kitchen, Devra has packed this new edition of her pioneering cookbook with more than 180 basic-ingredient, quick-instruction, maximum-flavor recipes. With appetizers, soups, mains, sides, and desserts inspired by Indian, Thai, Chinese, Middle Eastern, Mexican, Greek, and Italian cuisines, THE ACCIDENTAL VEGAN is sure to have vegans and nonvegans alike clamoring for more.

      I bought this book as a gift for my mother. She loved it and thought it would be a great book to use for her husband who is not a vegan!
