“This is an amazing book. Every recipe I have made has been delish….not that I have made every one but the pasta dishes are delicious and I am making the biscotti today; however, if you have to have one good reason to purchase this book you have got to get it for the “olive oil” pancakes. I have made these little gems four times already…first as directed, once gluten free with Bob’s one to one GF flour, and twice with l/2 all-purpose flour and l/2 spelt flour. Omg this simple recipe (which has no oil in it unless you oil the pan) is absolutely amazing, easy and the best GF and regular pancakes I have made in a long time and believe me….I love pancakes. I have Chloe’s first book which is very good (especially the Holiday loaf) but I love this book even more.” – Kathie Butler, Amazon
“The best and most used cookbook I own. I have been vegetarian for over 25 yrs and became vegan almost a year ago. I am Italian and was afraid I’d miss my cheesy pasta dishes. This cookbook is a. I’ve amazing. I use it so much it has stains on it and the pages are not pristine like my other books. I have made the pastas, the cupcakes, eggplant etc. I have loved every single thing! Chloe makes being vegan a cinch! She has a restaurant and is opening another, Only wish she would get her own cooking show.” – Gogo, Amazon
“Awesome vegan Italian recipes! I grew up in a household that was centered around creamy Italian pasta dishes and worried that I wouldn’t be able to find vegan recipes that compared. I have now been proven wrong! I made Chloe’s pasta with pink sauce, her garlic bread, and her roasted asparagus for a date night in and I was blown away by how delicious the food was. My date (who is not vegan or vegetarian) said he’d never know that it was vegan if I hadn’t told him! Chloe’s recipes are the real deal and I can’t wait to try many more in the very near future. Highly recommend this book!” – LK, Amazon
