“I’ve never loved waiting in line so much. You always know at the end of it there’s gonna be seitan, doughnuts, and laughs. And now we don’t even have to wait—we can make those killer sandwiches in our own homes!”  – Isa Chandra Moskowitz, author of Isa Does It

“Adam’s unique, crazy, and genius take on vegan food makes both omnivores and herbivores stand up and cheer!” – Chloe Coscarelli, author of Chloe’s Vegan Italian Kitchen

“As a classically trained chef and omnivore, I’ve always known that vegan food is healthy—but the enduring question for me was whether it can be delicious. If Adam Sobel is the chef, the answer is yes. In Street Vegan, he explodes the stereotype that vegan food is one-dimensional. Recipes are cosmopolitan, thoughtful, and helpful to anyone stuck in the same-ten-dishes rut.” – Sara Moulton, host of the public television show Sara’s Weeknight Meals
