  GREAT CHEFS COOK VEGAN, by Linda Long
is a special color-photo-illustrated compilation of menus and recipes from twenty-five of the highest-awarded chefs in the country as they interpret vegan cuisine in their high-end restaurants. There are presentations by Thomas Keller, Jean-George Vongerichten, Eric Ripert, Charlie Trotter, and other award-winning chefs, including Eric Blauberg, who has said, “If restaurants do not learn how to serve their vegan and vegetarian customers equally as well as the other customers at the table, they will never get that table-top back again as it is the vegan/vegetarian who determines where the group eats.”

Scheduled for publication September 1 2008, at a retail price of $35, the American Vegan Society is pleased to offer Great Chefs Cook Vegan (hard cover) at $23 for orders placed with us before August 20 2008. Expect books to be shipped in late August.
