PLANTBASED cookbook launch 16:00

“One of the most unique cookbooks you will ever read. Personal passion for food, originality in cooking, and good health – all in one!”

T. Colin Campbell,

Emeritus Professor, Cornell University & Co-Author, The China Study

Plant-based cooking that makes the most of your pantry with recipes that celebrate flavour and ingredients that nourish.

Plantbased is a complete guide to a rich vegan diet. Discover how to cook delicious and simple meals, ferment at home, and get the most from your grains, legumes, and vegetables.

“The recipes of Alexander are full of love and power. They feed you, on all different levels. Basic ingredients, easy to make, very tasty. Yummy. My kids recognize this. They love what I cook from his books. All time favorite: apple cake (kids love to make this themselves).”

Elsbeth Tijssen, photographer, Venusian Kitchen, The Netherlands

“Exactly the dishes that you crave for as a vegan: warm, filling, nourishing, like a warm jacket on a stormy day”

Pay-Uun Hiu, food writer, VOLKSKRANT, The Netherlands

“I can recommend Plantbased to everyone who loves to cook wholesome vegan dishes that nourish the body and uplift the soul. I keep coming back to this rich source of inspiration whenever I am looking for a quick and easy weekday meal. The book also offers plenty of inspiration for hassle free festive dishes that I love to serve to friends and family who are not familiar with the wholesome plantbased kitchen. They often ask for the recipes since the eye catching dishes taste so good and feel so vibrant.”

Sandra Rabenou, Cultural Researcher & Design Strategist, The Netherlands

“Cooking with Alexander showed me how easy and gratifying vegan cooking can be. I enjoy making these recipes over and over again.”

Rolf Snoeren, fashion designer, Viktor & Rolf, The Netherlands
