"It's like the proverbial breath of fresh air. It has really helped us. Provided much needed inspiration and encouragement. Every recipe has turned out well. The book is a delight to use - so cheerful, positive and affirming! So much info, excellent indexes, lovely boxes at the foot of each recipe suggesting what goes with.....
Thank you for this wonderful book Jane."
“It’s a beautiful book, full of colour photographs and a wealth of kitchen expertise, help for beginners and great dishes for the more experienced.”

“The Viva! Cookbook contains so much information that it has to be a go-to source for anyone who wants to cook delicious animal-free food, whether they are vegan or not.”
Jasmine Harman, TV presenter (A Place in the Sun – Home or Away
"It’s great that you can source the ingredients so locally (this has been commented on a lot). The recipes seem simple and user friendly and there is so much choice in vegan food, more so than people realised. It’s interesting, looks really nice and the pictures are good, as is the presentation – and it’s good to find a nice UK vegan cookbook."
Tim @ Scoopaway, Gloucester Road, Bristol
"I gave my copy to my daughter because the recipes were great for her daughter who is allergic to all animal milk. When I told Carrie that I was going to see Marie and Rose at the slash and burn weekend it reminded her to ask me to pass on the message that she has found it incredibly useful and refers to it almost every week. Given that her husband and son are dedicated carnivores - veg are just for garnish! - and 'hate Tofu' that was quite a surprise but a very welcome one."
"This beautiful and inspiring book continues to sell really well, reflecting the general interest in cruelty-free living. When we are out of stock, there is a waiting list!"
Pam Buckle, Wild Oats in Bristol
