Otherwise, this blog is now a legacy site, meaning that I am not updating it any longer. The basic information about LI is still sound. However, product information and weblinks may be out of date.

In addition, my old website, Planet Lactose, has been taken down because of the age of the information. Unfortunately, that means links to the site on this blog will no longer work.

For quick offline reference, you can purchase Planet Lactose: The Best of the Blog as an ebook on or Almost 100,000 words on LI, allergies, milk products, milk-free products, and the genetics of intolerance, along with large helpings of the weirdness that is the Net.

Great Chefs Cook Vegan Cookbook

The name Carper has inspired both derision and doubts about my authenticity - I was a critic and book reviewer for years - but at least it's fairly rare. Try searching for Linda Long and see how many irrelevant hits you get.

I just wanted to be sure that I hadn't already mentioned her new cookbook here. I haven't, though I'm not sure how I missed it. I found it just in time to include in with other cookbooks released in 2008 because of a press release that announced an award it won:

For her cookbook Great Chefs Cook Vegan, a compilation of high-end vegan-cuisine recipes from an elite array of renowned chefs, New York resident Linda Long has won the Best Vegan Cookbook category in PETA's Sixth Annual Proggy Awards. Long will receive a framed certificate and will be featured on PETA's award-winning Web site PETA's Proggy Awards ("Proggy" is for "progress") recognize animal-friendly achievements in commerce and culture. Long shares the honors with Kim Barnouin and Rory Freedman, authors of the best-selling vegan cookbook Skinny Bitch in the Kitch.

Long has put together the finest creations by the finest chefs, including Charlie Trotter, Daniel Boulud, Jean-Georges Vongerichten, and Suzanne Goin. Great Chefs Cook Vegan is filled with recipes for three- to four-course meals from culinary A-listers who have omitted the animal products that they usually work with in order to create 100 percent vegan menus. The book's high-end cuisine - including zucchini boxes provençal, grilled king oyster mushrooms, and avocado carpaccio with charred jalapeño oil and caramelized silken tofu brûlée - will have vegetarians and nonvegetarians alike asking for seconds.

You can find it on the Vegan Cookbooks page in my Milk-Free Bookstore.
