Living the Farm Sanctuary Life is told by the founder of Farm Sanctuary, a retirement sanctuary for rescued animals from factory farms. Either would be equally suited as either an entré for a newbie vegan’s growing arsenal of cookbooks, or an addition to a seasoned veteran vegan’s collection.

Cookin’ Up A Storm proves that one does not have to give up their favorite dishes to go vegan.Simple ingredients combined in a masterful way will make any skeptic convert.

Farm san book

Living the Farm Sanctuary Life is an educational cookbook in two parts. The first part is written by the founder of the eponymous Farm Sanctuary, Gene Baur, and outlines the organization’s philosophy, story, and mission. The reader is taken on the author’s personal journey from being an actor in McDonald’s and KFC commercials to being hailed as “the conscience of the food movement.” Gene Stone follows up with a robust collection of accessible vegan recipes the second half as author of such educational cookbooks as the New York Times bestseller Forks Over Knives, The Engine 2 Diet and My Beef with Meat. Both parts come together in this beautifully published book, sprinkled with full color photo spreads of farm animals and thoughtful quotes by global leaders.

Perusing the glossy pages feels like joining a warm, safe community filled with sunshine and smart people. Each recipe is contributed and forwarded by vegan demi gods: restaurant owners, authors, advocates, activists, and spokespeople. This is a great gift for someone who is new to veganism or perhaps even hostile to the idea. What can be more disarming than a dozen vignette stories of rescued farm animals and their friendships?

For both of these books, recipes range from fancy-schmancy to everyday fare, with something for everyone on each page, making it easy to take action. As Farm Sanctuary’s values say, “We engage people where they are on their journey to a cruelty-free lifestyle.”
