Top 10 Vegan CookBooks: It’s incredible that a vegan cookbook has made it into the amazon.com best sellers list, something no one would have thought possible a few years ago, in fact a few weeks ago.
No doubt it’s a lot, nay, all to do with Forbes no. 1 celebrity Oprah Winfrey, as it was Oprah that featured Kathy Freston’s book, the Veganist on her show, and on the Oprah website, and got 378 of her staff to follow the book’s advice for a week.
The American Vegan Cookbooks dominate sales of vegan recipe books, (especially ones about cupcakes) even on amazon.co.uk you won’t see a British vegan cookbook tackling vegan diets until number 6 on the ‘Vegan cookbooks’ listings.
Its a good book too even if I do say so myself, so many of the books don’t have pictures and us cooks like pictures. The Complete Book of Vegan Cooking is full of them, but is currently down to rank number 41 in the Vegetarian and vegan section, despite selling out and having to be reprinted within 6 months of it’s publication.
