Relationships today face a new cultural challenge–dietary lifestyles. As more vegans find themselves in relationships with omnivores—whether it’s a spouse, partner, roommate, or other family member—they discover there's new territory to navigate in order to coexist happily. Kitchen Divided by Ellen Jaffe Jones addresses the heated issues that can arise and offers solutions to help restore household harmony.
Using first-hand experience and incorporating suggestions gleaned from her network of cooking students, social media groups, and other vegans, Ellen diplomatically maps out workable approaches along with guidelines on how to implement them. Readers come away feeling more compatible with their kitchen mates and having a new sense of being able to thrive in a challenging kitchen environment.
Cooking and coping can be fun, and the emphasis in Kitchen Divided is on enticing rather than preaching. Tantalizing aromas lure many to sample new dishes and a satisfied stomach needs no further convincing that vegan fare can be fulfilling and flavorful. A variety of menu plans featuring innovative dishes that use meat and dairy alternatives, hearty meals where meat won’t be missed, flexible dishes that lend themselves to animal products being added, and versatile sides that vegans can adapt as main courses offer a myriad of accommodating choices. Whether or not everyone ends up on the same page of the menu, it will be easier to juggle the demands of cooking for diverse needs.
Book Publishing Company specializes in titles on healthy living and plant-based cooking and nutrition. They released Jones’ first book, Eat Vegan on $4 A Day in 2011. A former investigative and consumer reporter, Ellen tackled the myth that wholesome food was not affordable and outlined savvy tips and cost-effective recipes for eating nutritiously. While speaking at numerous veg fests and health fairs, she noticed a common thread among her audience that she could personally identify with: many people lived in households where their partners ate meat. Ellen was inspired to delve deeper and write a cookbook that also offered support and advice for vegans dealing with dietary differences in the home.
Kitchen Divided is sure to bring about peaceful coexistence and many tasty reconciliations.
