2008 Veggie Award Winner: "Comeback of the Year"
2009 Libby Award Winner (PETA): Best Cookbook
Sarah Kramer is a vegan superstar; she was named "The World's Coolest Vegan" by Herbivore magazine, and her first three cookbooks have sold a combined total of over 150,000 copies. Vegan à Go-Go! represents a change of pace for Sarah: a cookbook and more for vegan travellers, many of whom are daunted by the idea of going on the road and being able to locate and/or prepare the kind of nutritious animal-free meals they enjoy at home.
The new, full-colour book includes 150 recipes, many of them new, and others that have been adapted from her earlier books. All of the recipes are easy to prepare with a minimum of ingredients but guaranteed to deliver energy, nutrition, and great flavour. The rest of the book contains information and advice pertinent to vegan travelers, from how to deconstruct a restaurant menu to what food items are best suited to carry around in your luggage or handbag. There's even a section on "How to Say 'I Am Vegan'" in numerous languages.
The book is also designed with the traveller in mind: small enough to slip into one's pocket or purse, yet with a reinforced cover to ensure durability under the harshest conditions. Full of Sarah's high-energy wit and verve, Vegan à Go-Go! makes life for vegan travelers a lot less stressful and a lot more fun.

Kramer shows off her glam-punk style throughout the book and takes an informal, heart-felt approach to her writing.... [Her] recipes are approachable and fun.
I got a little more than I expected when I opened Sarah Kramer's pocket-sized travel guide, Vegan a Go-Go. Sure, it has the usual Kramerish type recipes, but it also has a wealth of plain old reading material. I loved the stories of Kramer as a child traveling with theater parents. I also appreciated the tales of Sarah as a young adult just learning about the world and the troubles that ensued. And I found it interesting how both of these experiences shaped her later adventures.
Kramer's book is a fun little book--about the size of a passport--sporting a retro look, snappy, fun writing, and lush-sounding recipes.
No more healthy food that tastes like sawdust; with these dishes, Sarah has managed to make vegan food fun, tasty, and sexy! What more could a hedonist like me ask for?
