Our extensive selection of books includes hundreds of nutrition, cooking and
vegetarian titles. There are cookbooks from every part of the world and for
every type of food from soups to desserts, tofu to tempeh and curry to burritos.
Whether you're cooking for kids, preparing gourmet meals for dinner parties or
making a quick snack for yourself, you will find the cookbook you've been
looking for. There will also be books to help you learn how to learn more about
good nutrition and to help you change your diet.
Some of the chefs are also cookbook authors. They will be available for book
signings at Vegfest, right after their presentation.

The Vegetarian Solution, written by
Stewart Rose, our Vice President, shows how our food choices have a huge impact
on our risk of many common diseases. Not only a solution to our health concerns,
it also shows how a vegetarian diet can be a solution to environmental crises
such as water pollution and global warming, to feeding the world’s hungry and to
giving the animals a better life.
Fully referenced for those wanting to investigate
further, there are also charts and illustrations to aid understanding. Practical
pointers are offered for making changes to your diet.
I highly recommend the Vegetarian Solution to all those wanting to maintain or
regain their health.”
- Neal Barnard, M.D.
President, Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine
“The Vegetarian Solution is a factual, scientific-literature-supported treatment
of a most important subject. The upbeat and fun-filled perspective is refreshing
and makes the facts actually most interesting and easy to read.”
