Meet Chef Roberto Martin!
I was beyond thrilled to find this new cookbook titled "Vegan Cooking For Carnivores: Over 125 Recipes So Tasty You Won't Miss the Meat"(Grand Central Publishing) by Roberto Martin. I think he wrote this book with my family in mind being that my kids and I are vegans while my husband is a total carnivore (who I'm verrryyyy slowly converting).
Chef Roberto Martin is not your average chef. And he had no intention of ever being called a vegan chef either. Chef Roberto is changing the way the mainstream views vegan food. As Ellen Degeneres' and Portia de Rossi's personal chef, Chef Roberto was forced to go beyond his comfort zone to develop some tasty vegan dishes to satisfy his clients. He certainly did not disappoint!
I could not wait to get my hands on this book and test some meals out on my meat-loving hubby! Chef Roberto's recipes have such flavor depth and thoughtful textures that leave carnivores forgetting about the fact that they're meatless. From classic dishes like Banana & Oatmeal Pancakes, Grilled Veggie Sandwich, Mac'N Cheese and Southern Fried Chick'n to more daring dishes like Roasted Corn Dodgers, Hearts of Palm Ceviche Tostadas, Grilled Polenta Cakes and Homemade Ravioli, Roberto doesn't miss a flavor beat! I'm excited to try more of his recipes, especially on unsuspecting house guests we're having over soon...shhh.
