Horizons cookbookWith 80 recipes, tons of full-color photos, and interesting stories about what inspires the chefs, Rich Landau & Kate Jacoby, cooking from their cookbook is the next best thing to actually eating at Horizons restaurant.

The Chicago Diner Cookbook

The Chicago Diner CookbookEstablished in 1983 by Jo Kaucher and Mickey Hornick, The Chicago Diner is a vegetarian jewel in a traditionally meat-loving city. Most of the recipes in The Chicago Diner Cookbook are vegan, though a few dairy products show up here and there.

The Veganopolis Cookbook

The Veganopolis CookbookVeganopolis Cafeteria was a vegan restaurant in Portland, Oregan until street crime forced its closure. But many of the recipes survive in The Veganopolis Cookbook. I particularly like the range of recipes in this cookbook, from basic to classic to veganized to unusual. There's a little something for everyone.

Vegetarian Restaurants

Though I can't hope to ever have a definitive list of vegetarian restaurants, I travel quite a bit and love trying new restaurants. This list includes vegetarian and vegan restaurants arojund the world, as well as non-veggie restaurants that offer a nice vegetarian selection.
