I'm looking for a book, or some books on cooking vegan on a very high level. There are several nonvegan michelin star level books, and many "quick and lazy" books, but I'm having a hard time to find one that covers vegan dishes on star niveau.

Can someone recommend a book like this?

If there are books that contain a lot of vegetarian receipts that can be "veganized" without destroying the whole meal, that would be fine aswell :)

  • Instead of searching for ‘vegan’ cookbooks, you might try searching for ‘Shōjin ryōri’ (Buddhist temple cuisine). There are a fair number of vegan Indian cookbooks, too, as there are castes that traditionally didn’t eat animal products.

    You might clarify what you mean by ‘high level’. Are you looking for technical stuff like the optimal pH for aquafaba? Or for complex vegan recipes which assume and require a high degree of competence?

  • Good point! I thought more of high degree of competence stuff

    Another way to search would be to see if any highly-rated vegan restaurants have published a cookbook; restaurant cookbooks tend to be aimed at a fairly competent, 'foodie' audience.

I'd recommend Crossroads, by vegan chef Tal Ronnen. While not quite The French Laundry Cookbook, Crossroads is nevertheless on the very gourmet side of vegan. And I can attest that the recipes are pretty good.
