Go up to the "Search" button at the top (the banana) and search on "Bryan Au" and you'll find several threads on the subject.

I have the book, and have tried several recipes. I have the pizza toppings, sauce and cheese, and placed them on sliced radishes. I brought them to a potluck and everyone enjoyed them.
I also have tried the Nacho Cheese Sauce, and have used it in different ways. Sometimes, I mix in some shredded veggies, and other times I spread it on crackers or slices of veggies.
One thing you have to remember, is the names of the recipes, don't always taste like the real SAD dish. One example is the macaroni and cheese recipe. It should be called something like "yam special" or "Yam surprise". It does not taste like mac and cheese, but it does have "some" resemblance to mac and cheese.

I've made some of the recipes, they were not good.
Hope you like them though. I've found out that many raw food recipe books you either love or hate. based on what you are looking for.
I personally like super tasty food, with ease in preparation, and great pictures.
If it's got pretty pictures, I'm a happy woman.

I have a copy of the book and the only thing I've made was the mac and cheese so far (actually made that BEFORE I even got the book).
I think that recipe has the potential to be a nice dish - maybe not mac and cheese, but some other "pasta-type" dish WITHOUT all that darned tumeric! I mean, it wasn't all bad, at first couple of tastes, I actually kinda liked it...but after a while, I grew weary of the "mustardy" taste of the tumeric.
That, I think, is what threw the whole thing off.
But one day, I plan to try some of the recipes and what I WON'T do is have it set in my mind that it's gonna taste like the SAD names given them.

I tend to like some things in just about every book I've gotten ~ and disliked other things. Some things I just don't get around to even trying.
Now, fungus things I've tried and not liked any of them except for Storm's oyster mushrooms with lemon and salt. Other than that ~ ick! I've tried gravies, soups, etc. at it's all been yucky.
Some of Juliano's things I've absolutely loved; others were o.k. the rest (that I've tried) ~ ick!
*shrugs* We all have our tastes.
