For more than a decade, Seattle's award-winning Cafe Flora has been serving up ingenious vegetarian and vegan dishes which have become so popular that even meat lovers long for the taste of their Portobello Wellington or Oaxaca Tacos. Now, from brunch dishes to appetizers and main courses to sides, salads, and condiments, here are 250 of its original recipes-with detailed instructions, clearly presented, to save time cooking and cleaning up. Along with serving and presentation suggestions, substitutions where appropriate, and a host of other culinary tips and advice, Cafe Flora Cookbook
embodies the true genius of this inventive restaurant.
