Notes about Recipes in this book

  • Green herb tacos, roasted chayote squash, king oyster barbacoa, pepita

    • VineTomato on December 15, 2017

      I was surprised to find this under the advanced section of the book as it was pretty straightforward to make, just lots of independent parts. I have never heard of a chayote squash, and without researching it first I decided to substitute it with butternut. The barbacoa sauce tasted like Old El Paso taco mix - which is not a bad thing - Kudos to Old El Paso. There was some pleasure in knowing I made it from scratch with fresh, whole ingredients. The pepita creme was okay - the grey colour was a bit off putting - next time I am going cashew chipotle creme!

  • Smashed cucumber, sesame ponzu, furikake

    • mjes on September 09, 2021

      There are several types of recipes using smashed cucumber - this is a very quick pickle approach. Sesame ponzu pickles the smashed cucumber; furikake garnishes it. A solid recipe worth repeating but not my top smashed pickle recipe.

  • Hearts of palm ceviche, leche de tigre, red pepper oil

    • Acarroll on November 14, 2021

      Easier to make than it looks, and very flavorful. If I made this again I would half the recipe - it made a huge amount. I left out the seagrass and used a chiffonade of Thai basil instead of micro Thai basil.

Publishers Text

In Plantlab, world-renowned vegan chef Matthew Kenney serves up a truly unique and visually stunning cookbook emphasizing the art of plant-based cuisine.

From Matthew Kenney, long considered a pioneer in raw and vegan cuisine, comes the first definitive vegan cookbook for serious foodies and chefs. Kenney’s life work has been his commitment to plant-based innovation as well as culinary nutrition, and in Plantlab he employs inventive techniques and creative thinking in dishes that are visual masterpieces as well as delectable meals. Inspired by his experimental kitchen and laboratory located in Belfast, Maine, Plantlab will help redefine plant-based cuisine for home cooks and amp up their skills to create beautifully prepared, delicious vegan foods in their own kitchens. From root purees and soups to kale polenta and pizza, the 100+ recipes employ a modern, creative approach that builds on skills as you progress through the book. As the recipes get more advanced, so to do the techniques, and by the end, you will be fermenting and using a smoke gun like a pro.

Throughout, Kenney explores elements of the lifestyle that go along with plant-based wellness, expanding on the science behind foods and explaining cutting-edge food technology and innovative techniques, such as using and making nut-based cheeses and artisanal chocolate.

Elegantly designed and gorgeously photographed, Plantlab celebrates innovative vegan cuisine at the highest level. It is a feast for the senses.
