    Just ordered your book…can’t wait! Began my journey to remove dairy, soy, and meat a couple of months ago…I convinced my husband to give up meat and sweets for a couple of weeks and he’s lost 20 pounds…your cookbook will add variety to our palates!

      I lost 80-100 pounds when I went vegan There are a few soy recipes in the book but I gave alternatives instead use seitan or beans. Thanks for ordering. Dairy is easy, soy you have to read the labels…meat is easy too. Good luck in your journey and thanks for reading the blog:)

    Hey Taymer! I was wondering if you wold consider selling a PDF downloadable version of your cookbook? It’s great to have the hard copy in a kitchen, but I like having the e-copy for when I travel, etc. Plus it would be more affordable for some of us! Just a thought! Or I guess a request! Hope you feel better soon! The lentil patties look WONDERFUL and when you suggested them to me when I went to Barbados they were an almost daily staple along with Roti. LOVED them!

    Oh my! I really wanted to get your book before Thanksgiving so I could make the macaroni pie, but the Barnes & Nobles says they won’t get it until December 1. Anyway, I just ordered it through Guess they will have to do without that dish this Thanksgiving. I’m looking forward to trying it though.

    Hi Taymor,

    I happened upon your book last week and made the immediate decision to buy it. My SO is a Bajan vegetarian (living here in the States) missing some of his childhood foods. I made the Tofish with cou cou. We both enjoyed it completely. I loved the cou cou, which I had never even eaten before. The sauce was perfect for it.

    Next I intend to try the Bajan macaroni pie.

    I’m really glad I found the book and the blog and am looking forward to trying more recipes. We would also like to go to Barbados in the near future so I will check back for your travel tips.

    I was at a local bookstore a few weeks ago when I saw your book for the first time. I was thrilled because I thought I’d have to make Jamaican vegan dishes from scratch. I’d succeeded in making my own Jamaican Patties but everything else I didn’t have the motivation for. I saw your versions of the patties and was also inspired. I’ll be making these sometime in the future. Maybe for my birthday? Anyway, thanks for making this book.

    Dear Lorraine

    Thanks for the feedback. May I point you to another publication Delicious Jamaica which is a vegetarian cookbook with all things Jamaica. The Caribbean is not Jamaica as you know and I wanted to go beyond the scope of most cookbooks which neglect to expose readers to other islands who also have vegan food and whose dishes could be vegan. With that said on the fan page there are calaloo fritters recipe which is very Jamaican. There is also Jerk Sausage, Jerk Seasoning, Ackee Scramble and Jerk Pizza or Happy Pizza as I would call it in the book. Dishes like manish water were out of the question.I am working on a recipe for Jamaican Coconut Bake which was suppose to be Caribbean Vegan but I was on a deadline and it basically missed the boat. After hearing persons ideas about Caribbean cuisine only jamaican food and fish. I am sorry the book is not as Jamaican heavy as you were expecting also please note the patties in the bookhave a lowfat crust. I am planning on doing Jamaican patties one day on the blog meaning the full fat ones as the blog is an extension of the book and one day if there is a second edition some recipes that came after the book will be included. I really appreciate you buying the book and please give your feedback when you start to get into it and I am free on fb and twitter if you have problems making a start.
    Warm Regards

    What a wonderful book of recipes! I’ve been a vegetarian for 34 years and 99% vegan with the exception of cheese pizza once or twice a month. I can’t find a vegan cheese that I like…

    Thirty years ago there were a couple cookbooks, but nothing as exciting as yours 30 years later! I checked your book out at the library and went online to purchase.

    Thank you!

      Hey Kym
      Thank you for the comment. I am thrilled you as a long time vegetarian found joy in this book and I will be rolling out more recipes on the site as an extension of the book so look out for that soon.
      Thank you again for your support

    As a Jamaican vegan living in Jamaica with my Bajan vegan wife and children, can I buy the book in Jamaica?

    Keep up the good work. Thanks

      My primary aim to to have Caribbean Vegan in every bookstore in the Caribbean by the end of the year. I have requested a list from the publishers for the store in the Caribbean that are currently carrying this book and I have not received it as yet. I will be trying to get a small shipment down to Jamaica if they keep me waiting as I have some contacts for bookstores and my Jamaican followers have been waiting for this title for a while. Give me about a week to get back to you Sheps.

    Love your book! I got it from amazon. The only thing that saddens me a bit is that no recipe from Haiti or the Dominican Republic are mentioned. I live in the DR and both here and in Haiti there are some good vegan dishes too. But still, it’s a great book. Love that the recipes include so many locally-grown ingredients.

      I wish I could have included recipes from that part of the world but I did not know any or did not know any foodies from that part of the region who could assist me. As I am in St Martin now I have so there are more Haitan and DR dishes but what they sell here is usually very meaty…there is this pickle from haiti I need to go taste but I did not want to write about dishes I did not know about like some ppl and write the wrong thing. If you read the blog more I will be doing more root vegetables I am over rice and pasta and now making new and exciting dishes with ground provisions. What dish do u want me to make from Haiti? Let me know. Thanks Ann

    I absolutely LOVE your recipes….. They got me through my first round of Daniel Fasting and have since been used as a go to guide for my 5 week vegan class the month of April. Now after reverting back to unhealthy eating lifestyle, I’m literally craving veganism. So I’m back on my Caribbean Vegans recipes and I will be purchase two books for myself and culinary-challenged vegan friend. You are truly blessed, thanks for sharing 🙂

    Is your book ‘Spiral Bound’ for easier use in the kitchen? If not, please consider that so the book would be able to lie flat and/or fold.
    Thank you.

    I’m about to buy your book, but have only one question. I’ve read that people lost a lot of weight with a vegan diet and I’m too thin already. Would you recommend your book for someone like me?

    • Taymer permalink*

      yes caribbean vegan is not for weight loss it has the indulgent the medium and the kind on your waistline…it is a mixed bag for everyone…was never penned as a healthy weight loss book but for the sole purpose of having caribbean delights without the meat..go ahead

    I absolutely love your blog and find a lot of your post’s to be exactly what I’m
    looking for. Do you offer guest writers to write content available for you?

    I wouldn’t mind creating a post or elaborating on a few of the subjects you write related to here.
    Again, awesome site!

    Hi Taymer,
    I just came back to Sweden from Barbados and I am so disappointed I did not know about your book before I left Bim! I would have asked you to sign it! Is there anyway to buy the book directly from you to be shipped to Sweden? If not I will just go ahead and buy it on Amazon. Thanks for your work! Blessing and Love! best regards, Lena
