Shannon Martinez and Mo Wyse are here to challenge them all, one inventive dish at a time. Determined to do things differently, they built a restaurant in Melbourne called Smith & Daughters. The instant crowds told the story; these were the bold flavors people had been waiting for. From Shannon's take on meatballs and garlic prawns, to Chilean shepherd's pie and a tantalizing line-up of desserts and drinks, these are recipes for anyone who appreciates creative, good food – vegan or otherwise. The chef of the duo, Shannon, comes from the perspective of a carnivore and combines science, innovation and whimsical methods to create dishes and flavors that aren't the norm for vego/vegan food.

    Yum, yum, yum Lovely to have the stories of Mo & Shannon included with the delicious recipes and photos of tummy rumbling food. I must get my own copy now and make a special trip to Melbourne just to go to their restaurant.

    For anyone questioning the chicken and/or beef broth in recipes, read then notes on page 21 “Our favorite substitutes”. It says, “most supermarkets carry vegan chicken/beef broth.”

    I have quite literally read this from cover to cover and have cooked nearly every recipe in it, with an aim to get to them all! Favourites so far include sopa seca, their vegan garlic aioli (and literally every other sauce), the Chilean shepherd's pie, their pickles, the 'meat' balls, the corn and jalepeno pancakes, the salads... as I say, everything. They make beautiful, flavourful dishes super accessible to a home cook (that happens to be trying to be vegan).

    I have not made any recipes from this book and when I looked at it on the library shelf I kinda thought it was not my style but everything looked so pretty I had to get it out and look at it anyway. They are clear at the beginning of the book that these are not necessarily healthy vegan options, which is fine. But I do not need to fry anything personally. And most of the foods are not for me in their flavouring or ingredients. Though I will be keeping the Pastel De Choclo recipe to try out later I have not made any recipes from this book and when I looked at it on the library shelf I kinda thought it was not my style but everything looked so pretty I had to get it out and look at it anyway.

    Having been a fan of S&D for a few years, I decided it was time to buy their cookbook and enjoy their delicious meals at home. I really enjoyed reading the personal stories of the authors/owners and admiring the beautiful design and photography contained within the book. Recipe-wise, there’s a good mix of starters, mains, desserts, sauces and drinks — a little something for everyone. I’ll provide an updated review once I’ve tried some of the dozen or so recipes I’ve flagged to try ASAP!

    Written by a non-vegan, vegan chef and a vegan manager, these recipes are perfect for anyone looking to eat a more plant-based diet. The recipes are friendly for cooking at home and the photos are complimentary to the recipes. I love the grunge feel of the book, from the black edges and marker ribbon to the dark photos and tattooed bodies. Keeps it real.

    Love this book with on caveat. Few of the receipes are quick and easy to make. I've made five dishes. Four were really good. The fifth was just good. It's also a beautiful book with lovely pictures. Highly recommend this book! Love this book with on caveat. Few of the receipes are quick and easy to make. I've made five dishes.

    This is NOT a vegan cookbook! I excitedly bought this book only to discover that many receipes called for CHICKEN stock and some with FISH sauce. Also, for the size of book, I expected more recipes. Overall - not impressed and wouldn't recommend. This is NOT a vegan cookbook!

    Stunning vegan cookbook with mouthwatering latin american/spanish inspired recipes. Lots of beautiful pictures and great styling. The kind of book that makes you want to cook more, try new things and have fun cooking up lots of veg.

    I borrowed this from the library because it was given a 5 star review in GR magazine but I think it would appeal to the people who frequent the restaurant. The photography and presentation is what appealed to me - will not be trying any of the recipes.

    I made two of the recipes already and really liked them. Photo presentation was sooo ugly though (sorry, just my opinion!); single use plastic and tacky 80's plates, bowls, so would def not recommend this book for people who get cookbooks just because they're full of pretty pictures I made two of the recipes already and really liked them.

    This book is a treat. The layout is cool. The pictures of food are cool. There's a good balance of recipes that would be easy to make and recipes that would be a little more difficult.

    The sequel was way better. This one is too chef-y for me.

    I feel like I am missing something. How is it vegan when at least four recipes call for chicken or beef broth?

    Most of the food was too complicated and took too long. I did find 2 recipes I wanted to make. The photos were gorgeous.

    Recipe I tried at random was mega mega rich. Will change rating if recipes are better in future tries.
