A born food-lover, raised in California on ‘the best Mexican food in the country’ and her father’s ‘traditional Southern soul food,’ Alicia C. Simpson couldn’t imagine giving up her favourite dishes to become vegan. Animal-free food might be healthier, but could it match the tastes of home – like fried chicken, macaroni and cheese, or a bowl of chili? Three years after Alicia took the vegan plunge, Quick and Easy Vegan Comfort Food answers that question with a resounding ‘yes!’
