Portland Book Review, 7/5/12 "With some hundred and twenty five recipes, John Schlimm brings vegans wonderful grilled dishes in Grilling Vegan Style. The ten-page introduction is a must for the novice griller and even those experienced will benefit. Schlimm uses the grill for everything, even making popcorn, grilling lettuce and watermelon." San Francisco/Sacramento Book Review, 7/5/12 "If there's one cookbook to prove that vegan fare doesn't have to be flavorless or boring, this just might be it...Whether you are a strict vegan or simply trying to incorporate more vegetables into your diet, Grilling Vegan Style overflows with great ideas. Not only are they easy and appetizing, but they use everyday ingredients you can easily find at your local farmer's market or health food store. Within these pages, grill meets vegan...in very a good way." Sand and Succotash blog, 7/1/12 "Provides something for everyone: the recipes are healthful; the tips for grilling hard-to-grill items like tofu, tempeh, and seitan are spot on; and there are no shortage of new ways for old combinations." VeggieGirl.com, 7/2/12 "A must have for anyone with a grill." "I have to admit that I was a little skeptical about a Vegan Grilling book. After all in my world it's all about the meat. I might even be considered a Non-Vegan! But John's book has opened my eyes to the concept and his recipes are outstanding. The Slip-N-Sliders is a great recipe for everyone and I guarantee I'm going to try the Strawberry Skewers with Vanilla, I Scream! real soon!" Terry Hope Romero, Author of Viva Vegan! and Co-Author of Veganomicon "Veggie backyard BBQ warriors and grill pan guerillas; John Schlimm, your knight in tofu armor has arrived, also bearing Spiked Ruby Daiquiris and other sipping delights." Marisa Miller Wolfson, Writer & Director of Vegucated "I dare you to flip through this book and not already start to daydream about which mouth-watering recipe you'd use to wow your friends at the next backyard BBQ. I can't decide who would be more fun to grill for: hipster gourmands on a rooftop in Brooklyn or my veganophobic friends in my dad's backyard in Indiana. The recipes in this book are equal opportunity wowers!" Examiner.com, 7/29/14 "Burgers, sauces, and sides that will rock the socks off omni and vegan guests." "When I was a kid, the best thing in the world was grilling time. Grilling Vegan Style brings the nostalgia back and highlights that for me as a new dad, there is a way to share the ritual of 'food and fire' with my son." Inder Bedi, Founder and Creative Director of MATT & NAT "We often cite several inspirations for what we do at MATT & NAT, however few of them get us salivating as does great vegan food! John's pioneering take on the traditional BBQ in Grilling Vegan Style (including desserts!) has gotten us VERY excited. Another cultural phenomenon has been brought into the 21st century, thank you John for providing vegans a path to partake in a favorite summertime tradition!" Chef Paul Kirk, CWC, Ph.B., B.S.A.S., Kansas City Baron of BBQ, and Author of Championship Barbecue and America's Best BBQ "With Grilling Vegan Style, John has shown you ways to bring out flavors and taste you never thought possible. John's recipe for Party on South Peach Salsa especially is to die for and will go with almost anything." Ray Lampe AKA Dr. BBQ, Author of Ribs, Chops, Steaks, and Wings and Dr. BBQ's Big-Time Barbecue Cookbook VegNews, May/June 2012 "Our love for John Schlimm knows no bounds. A relative newcomer to the vegan cookbook-writing scene, he had us at hello with 2011's The Tipsy Vegan. Schlimm's signature style is just that: stylish...The man knows his way around a theme, not to mention a barbecue. Just as he did with booze, Schlimm takes a single-subject book and broadens its scope beyond what was previously thought possible...But it isn't just the breadth and depth of his smokin' hot repertoire, it's the thoughtfulness, playfulness, and downright fun that Schlimm brings to his work...Schlimm is an author we'd love to stand around the grill with--gabbing, drinking, and saving the world all at once." Library Journal, 5/11/12 "With the heavy emphasis most grilling cookbooks place on meat, vegetarians and vegans may feel resigned to potato salad. Happily, this title delivers a varied, full slate of meal options." EatDrinkBetter.com, 7/28/12 "The recipes in Grilling Vegan Style are inspired and inspiring.

Rory Freedman, Co-Author of the #1 New York Times bestseller Skinny Bitch "John Schlimm adds sizzle and flare to plant-based dishes up and down the picnic table. Who knew you could have so much fun grilling everything from salads and sandwiches to desserts?! Grilling Vegan Style is more than a cookbook; it's a go-to handbook for outdoor living, eating, and celebrating." Gene Baur, President and Co-Founder of Farm Sanctuary "Grilling Vegan Style cracks the code to making summer last all year round by combining equal parts compassion, fire, and nature's freshest ingredients. This is a feast the whole family can enjoy, and feel good about!" Neal Barnard, MD, President of the Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine "Grilling Vegan Style brings you the best of all possible worlds--delicious, fun foods prepared in the most healthful way.
