Eat, Drink and Be Vegan is here!

well almost!

you can pre-order eat, drink and be vegan at Amazon now!!

And yes, this is the final cover! What do you think? Hope you like it, I do. Little fresher and more 'vegan' than the brown version we voted on.
I'll be back in about a week. Have the photo shoot for the remaining food photos coming up this weekend. Oodles of planning and prep to do... 13 photos to do in two days with about 20-25 recipes to prep. YIKES! Wish us (me!) luck. I'll need a vacation come Monday!

YAY!!! as soon as I saw this post, I clicked over to Amazon.com and pre-ordered "Eat, Drink, and Be Vegan" (my mom just purchased Isa's cookbook for me as a surprise the other day, so I'm all set with that book as well). And I absolutely love the book cover!! GREAT choice of style and colors. Good luck and have fun!! I can't WAIT for the book!

And thank you sooo much for visiting my new blog - I will try to post mostly throughout the week, so be sure to stop by again when you have time :0)

Dreena - The green cover is most excellent!

I just checked at Amazon, and as of 3:13 p.m. on Monday, there is no extra pre-order discount for ordering both Veganomicon and Eat, Drink and Be Vegan. "Buy both now" will put both in your cart, but it gives no additional discount over buying them separately.

I'm going to order them, of course, but I just thought you should know that Amazon's "better together" pairings don't offer additional discounts unless they explicitly say so.

That's so cool!! I love the green cover!

Julie said...

The cover looks great...I love green!

I will for sure preorder the book!!

Judy said...

Love the cover! Good luck with everything - can't wait to get my hands on a copy!

Dreena, I just love the cover and think that you sure did make a smart choice. I'm SO SUPER excited for the book to come out (can I wait till October?) I just might have to take a trip to Canada and show up at your house if I can't wait, haha! Well you can count on me to pre-order this beauty. I know you poured so much time and energy into it. Good luck with the photo shoot, 20-25 recipes!!!! I do not envy this task, but I know that you'll celebrate it afterwards with some delicious ice cream and ice cream sandwiches.

Wow--it's beautiful!

KleoPatra said...

Love the colour!! Actually, colourS. It's what's inside that counts though, right?! And we already know that what's inside is gonna be stellar all the way, Dreena!

Michelle said...

I think the cover is great! --Maureen--

VeganStampCycleLady said...

LOVE it! and I pre-ordered too! I'm so happy for you! good luck!

Dreena said...

Awwww, you guys are terrific. Your excitement and support means so much... thank you all! :)

Chanale, thank you for that correction - I didn't realize, when I've bought grouped items they have been further discounts, so I didn't check the total. I removed the reference from my post, thanks for the heads up.

Teresa, you can come to Canada, I'd love to meet you! :) And, are you psychic? I am making some dishes in advance (ones that I can). Yesterday I made my 5-star ice cream sandwiches... they will be one of the photos for the book!! Yes, you have a psychic vibe tuned to my cooking!


again, thanks everyone... I'm even more excited than ever to get this book to you. It will give you many recipes to rotate through your weekly meals and snacks. Desserts too of course!

The cover looks great. Good work. 20-25 recipes!!! What do you do with all that food wen the pictures are done?

Vegan_Noodle said...

Looks great! I'm going to go reserve my copy at amazon now!

Peace, Love and Veganism said...

Looks fresh and yummy - good cover choice! Can't wait to try your cheesecake!

urban vegan said...

Congratulations, Dreena! I can't wait to get the book. I hope you find time to relax and celebrate.

On another unrelated note, I heard your interview on nutrition on the Vegan Freak podcast (April) and thought you were wonderful.

The Veggie Vixen said...

Dreena, It's beautiful -- fresh, modern and hip (just like you, eh?). :-)
Looking forward to getting my hands on the new cookbook. I was just in the bookstore today buying Vive for a friend and the cashier commented on how good the cookbook is. I agreed and told her that you have a blog and are super nice and will reply to comments regarding recipes and nutrition. Hmmm...maybe you'll need a vacation after that ringing endorsement! :-) I also mentioned that you have a new book coming out in the fall.
I have many cookbooks but Vive is my all-time favourite.
Best wishes.

soulmatesforever said...

I love the cover! It's very attractive. Can't wait for this book to come out!

Vicki's Vegan Vice said...

Best of luck with your photo shoot! LOVE the cover, and I know I'll love what's inside. I'm off to pre-order! Congrats, Dreena! :o)

Dreena said...

Angie, we happen to have some family in town, so I'm suspecting that between family and the photographer/publisher crew, most things will get scarfed down! Maybe just a few things for leftovers...

Thanks vegan noodle!

Peace, love, thank you... the Chi Cake I posted about some weeks ago isn't mine... is that the recipe you mean?

Urban Vegan, I think once most of the work is done this week and into Sat, I can chill out some. Will have a bottle of wine close at hand just to be sure I'm good and relaxed. :) Thanks for you note about the Vegan Freaks interview. Bob and Jenna are terrific, aren't they? And they've created this community network for new and long-time vegans to communicate.

Ha, Veggie Vixen, yes that's how I describe myself most days "fresh, modern and hip". As long as I fake it now and again anyhow! Wow. ((Hugs)) to you. What an amazing thing for you to say, and for me to hear. That's very special, thank you. :)

Soulmatesforever, I'm glad you and so many others like the cover. It's what makes most people pick up a book to scan through, after all. Thanks.

Hiya Vicki, I hope many, many of the recipes make for happy mouths with your family. :) Thanks for your support.


You guys are awesome, you know that?!! :)

VeganLisa said...

Congratulations Dreena,
The cover is fabulous. I can't wait to check out all of the new recipes.

steph said...

Looking forward to "Eat, Drink and Be Vegan." I just was curious to know if the nutritional info will be listed with the recipes?

Thanks!

Andrew Keese said...

I can't wait to see this new cookbook. I'm having so much fun with your last one.

julie hasson said...

Congratulations Dreena! The cover is beautiful, and I really look forward to cooking from the new book.

Good luck on your photo shoot!

Julie

bazu said...

Ack- how exciting! Good luck at the photo shoot- and I hope the book gets here, already!

aimee said...

Hi Dreena..I've been gone for a while, but so glad to come back and see "the book" is ready for pre-order! Can't wait to get it! Is it, in fact, going to be out in October (Amazon didn't have a release date listed)? I'm really looking forward to it! Congrats and good luck with the photos!
Aimee

Dreena said...

Hi Steph, no the nutritional info isn't included as it was with TEV. I've heard from a lot of folks that really like the nutritional analysis in TEV, so I'm sorry it won't be in ED&BV, but I just didn't have the time with Vive or with this book to do it. It took a loooong time with TEV, and that was before I had kids - ha! :)

Andrew, that's nice to hear, thanks!

Hey Julie, thanks. I need some luck... and a second fridge to hold all this food!!! :)

Ha, Bazu, I'm guessing you're imagining 25 recipes to prep with that "ack"! To prep and shop for... it's been a busy week, but I'm still having fun. I must really love what I do, huh?!

Aimee! Hi, nice to 'hear' from you again. Yes, it should be out in October, though that might be early November in some areas. I will certainly give more details on the date in the next couple of months. Thanks!!

Liliy said...

Wow, the cover looks great! I'm so happy your book is finally out! Which publisher did you use?

Michelle.D said...

I'm so excited for you Dreena! You are almost there! I can't wait to get my hands on this cookbook. I love the cover.

Dreena said...

Hi Liliy, thanks, and well it's almost out... just available for preorder now, and will be in stores Oct/Nov timeframe. (Oh, and I've been with the same publisher, Arsenal, for all my books).

Thanks Michelle, as I type I'm soon off to get prepared for the food photos today. Yesterday's photos came out so well. I'm excited too!

VeggieGirl said...

hey dreena!! just wanted to stop by and wish you a happy Canada Day!! :0)

3veggies said...

Hey, hope you are getting some rest!!! I noticed that at booksamillion.com they are also letting you pre-order the new book but they show the other cover with you on it. You are releasing just the one cover, aren't you?

Dreena said...

Veggiegirl, that's thoughtful thank you. This year Canada Day festivities happened without me unfortunately. I was in the kitchen all day for the photo shoot! Will give a 'behind the scenes' peek soon...!

3veggies, I'm kickin' back a little more now that all the work is done... yay!! Yes, yes, just the green cover is going to print. It's just that when some of the information was first released to the sales groups, it was with that white cover with the photos. Now, the green cover image is being sent to replace the one picturing me, but it takes some time for that to happen.

Candi said...

I love the cover and cannot wait to have that book in my hands!! Great job, once again, Dreena!!

Candi said...

PS> I just pre-ordered mine! :) Woo!!!

Dreena said...

Thanks Candi!! :)

Lori said...

Looks great!!! And I preordered the book today!

Dreena said...

Thank you Lori. :)

Good-Dees said...

Can't wait to see the goodies inside the beautiful cover!!! Love your other books!
