WHEELER DEL TORRO BOOK RECOMMENDATION: Vegan Brunch: Homestyle Recipes Worth Waking Up For--From Asparagus Omelets to Pumpkin Pancakes by Isa Chandra

To celebrate the back-to-school season, we thought we'd give everyone a glimpse of what Wheeler del Torro has been reading lately. While he's working hard on writing his new book to be released next fall, Wheeler would like to make a few vegan cookbook recommendations (for those who can't wait for our next book to be released).

Vegan Brunch: Homestyle Recipes Worth Waking Up For--From Asparagus Omelets to Pumpkin Pancakes (Paperback)

From Amazon-- Omelets. French toast. Bacon. Brunch has always been about comfort, calories—and for vegans everywhere, a feast of foods they can’t touch. Until now! Bestselling vegan chef Isa Chandra Moskowitz unleashes her signature flair and ingenuity to give readers breakfast they won’t find anywhere else, whether welcoming you from a late night on the town or waking you up for a meal you won’t want to forget.

Recipes range from the classic (Pancakes and Waffles) to the inspired (Banana Rabanada) to the decadent (Pain au Chocolat) to the essential (Bloody Marys).

The book also includes gluten-free and soy-free recipes. With over 75 recipes suitable for one or to wow a crowd, and gorgeous color photos throughout, Vegan Brunch is the ultimate cookbook for the most important meal of the day.


“The vegan chef reframes breakfast for those for whom bacon, eggs, and cream cheese are verboten.”
The New York Times

“My favorite vegan recipes are the ones that are effortlessly able to slip into social gatherings of omnivores, earning oohs and ahhs for their sheer yumminess…Nobody is better at writing recipes like these than Isa Chandra Moskowitz."

“Brings that excitement I've been craving along with a big helping of creativity…There is something for every cooking ability and every taste.”

“Moskowitz injects all her recipes with her usual sass and humor, and one leaf through Vegan Brunch will leave you with reasons—and recipes—galore to host a weekend food-party."

“Vegan Brunch would be at home in any kitchen. Lusciously photographed home-style dishes like Cherry Sage Sausages and Brazilian French Toast require minimal prep time and few ingredients.”
