Vegan Pie in the Sky: 75 Out-of-this-World Recipes for Pies, Tarts, Cobblers, and More

Isa Chandra Moskowitz and Terry Hope Romero. Da Capo Lifelong, $17 trade paper (224p) ISBN 9780738212746
Moskowitz and Romero (coauthors of Veganomicon) team up again and turn their attention to dessert in this collection of 75 egg, dairy and animal-free pies, cheesecakes, cobblers and tarts. Employing non-hydrogenated margarine and shortening, they offer bakers a wide variety of crusts to build on—from the traditional pie crust to chocolate, graham cracker and even buckwheat. Once they've got their crust handled (detailed techniques are included), readers can roll up their sleeves to create vegan versions of traditional pies like cherry, key lime, and pumpkin as well as a Chocolate Hazelnut Truffle Tart, Chai-Spiced Rice Pudding Pie and Peanut Butter Brownie Cheesecake. The duo deserves plaudits for their user-friendly approach as well as their ability to keep scarcer ingredients to a minimum. Bakers who fear they won't be able to recreate these will be happy to discover that once they've mastered a crust or two they'll be able to whip together a Strawberry Field Hand Pie, Chocolate Mousse Tart, or even a Coconut Cream with confidence. Agency: The Agency Group.
