To mark the launch of their new “Books for Cooks” section (it’s totally passé to call them cookbooks nowadays), Victoria, BC based web-bookstore AbeBooks has posted an interview with hometown girl Sarah Kramer, author of How It All Vegan, In the Garden of Vegan and La Dolce Vegan. In the interview, she mentions that her fave New York restaurants are HanGawi and Red Bamboo.
AbeBooks is best known as a place to buy used books, and maybe they’re trying to change that image a bit. But not entirely: check out this great page of the most expensive cookbooks they’ve ever sold, starting with a 1746 edition of La Cuisiniere Bourgeoise sold for $1751.43 (even in Canadian dollars, that’s a lot!). I say your money is better spent on a one of Sarah’s books, or a second-hand copy of the amazing and amazingly still out-of-print Simply Heavenly! The Monastery Vegetarian Cookbook.
