I know, I know, it's somewhat unseemly to gush about a person who you don't even know, but I just can't help it...
Colleen Patrick-Goudreau is a genius!
(If you don't know who she is by now, stop reading this second and go take a listen to one of her fantastic Food for Thought podcast episodes. Go ahead, I'll wait...)
Alright, now that you're back, I'd like to tell you about Colleen's newest cookbook, The Vegan Table. I've been drooling over it on Amazon for several months, and it finally arrived in my mailbox - in all of its glory - just under a week ago.
It's packed with stunning food photography, creative recipes, and gobs of helpful food facts/tips. Plus, it's the most comprehensive vegan cookbook I've ever encountered - not to mention the fact that it obligated me to plow through an entire pack of Post-It tabs just so I could mark all of the "good-sounding" recipes!
So far, I've made two dishes from The Vegan Table (the Spicy Black Bean Burgers, and this post's featured recipe, the Flourless Chocolate Tart), both with great success. However, I plan to make at least FIVE more recipes from the cookbook this week!
Yep, it's safe to say, I'm obsessed.
Anyway, instead of re-reviewing the cookbook here, I've decided to keep this short and let you click here if you're interested in reading my Amazon review of it.
Now, let's let this tart speak for itself, shall we?
