There’s another fun vegan cook book in town and I bet you can guess what’s the focus of NYC Vegan! You’re right – it’s iconic recipes from New York City. The Rueben on the cover makes my mouth water – how about you?
I lived in New York about 30 years ago and lived in what’s a super hip area in Brooklyn now. When I was there it was full of old Italian women, but I was walking distance from Italian, Polish, and Hispanic groceries. I was 2 stops away from the city and all the Indian food I could eat, so it was perfect.
I loved living there and ate my weight in bagels, knishes, pizza, falafel, and ate in kosher dairy restaurants as much as possible. All of those being perfect for a young student on a strict budget.
As soon as I took a bite of Micheal and Ethan’s Manhattan Glam Chowder I was reminded of sitting at a long, crowded table with my tray of soup with a side of toasted bagel.
I met some of the most interesting New Yorkers at that table. Lots of retired people who told me about their long and full lives growing up in New York and a few shared some of their recipes with me too.
It was wonderful to remember all of this while eating this delicious bowl of soup, you should try it!
