VegNews, September/October 2011 "Isa. Terry. Pie. Those three words are pretty much all you need to know...Vegan Pie in the Sky is a veritable smorgasbord of dished desserts...One of the most highly anticipated vegan-baking tomes since Vegan Cupcakes Take Over the World. Or Vegan Cookies Invade Your Cookie Jar." Kirkus Reviews, 10/15/11 "The icons of hip vegan cuisine tackle the heavyweight champ of American dessert: pie...Bursting with an 'anyone-can-do-this' approach and a defiant 'non-vegans-won't-be-able-to-tell-the-difference' attitude, they provide dozens of recipes for classic fruit pies, cobblers, crisps and cheesecakes. Vegan cooks can look forward to whipping up a pear and cranberry galette that will even have their carnivorous relatives scarfing down a second slice at the next family gathering...More than just a niche guide, this mouthwatering collection of desserts will satisfy even the most reluctant reader." VegNewsletter (VegNews e-newsletter), October 2011 "A drool-worthy cornucopia of pies." Tucson Citizen, 10/24/11 "A book you should grab if you want to stun your family with tasty treats for the holidays...Filled with funny little tidbits for the 'vegan police' and gives advice for the new baker. It is fun to read even if you never try a recipe because you'll learn a lot about some ingredients...Try Vegan Pie in the Sky and your friends and family will be amazed by your talent."

This is a truly delicious book. Most of the recipes call for regular ingredients that can be foud in every health food store, with just few exceptions. The balance between fruit pies, creamy pies, chocolate pies and so on is perfect, and they all taste delicious! The creamy pies rely heavily on cashewnuts so beware if you have a nut allergy. This book for me even topped Vegan Cookies Invade Your Cookie Jar by the same authors, which I would not have believed possible. A must-have for any pie lover!show moreby Caterina Vremec
