Compassionate Cuisine: the cookbook
available for pre-order
After seven years of designing recipes and teaching vegan cuisine at the Sanctuary, Chefs Linda Soper-Kolton and Sara Boan are delighted to tell the story of Compassionate Cuisine through an array of vegan recipes that will inspire and delight.
These recipes have been savored and devoured by thousands of visitors to the Sanctuary, and can now be enjoyed in kitchens all over the world. Interwoven with the recipes are stories about some of the Sanctuary's beloved animals, written by Founder and Director Kathy Stevens (who is also the author of two other Sanctuary volumes, Where The Blind Horse Sings and Animal Camp).
The cookbook contains 125 savory and sweet recipes, including Sanctuary favorites:
Blueberry Praline French Toast Casserole, Buffalo Cauliflower with Bleu Cheese Dressing, Moroccan Vegetable and Chickpea Tagine, Chipotle Sweet Potato Stew with Lime Cashew Crema, Coconut Cream Pie, Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Truffles, and many more!

Whether you're just curious, learning to cook, or an experienced pro in the kitchen, we have something to make mealtime and little easier and a lot tastier.
Take a Class With the Chefs
Offered on-site in The Homestead kitchen, our classes are intimate, with seating for ten. The style is relaxed and interactive, and generally demonstration-style. Classes are taught by either Chef Linda Soper-Kolton or Chef Sara Boan, both graduates of the chef’s training program at Natural Gourmet Institute in Manhattan. Learn more about the classes and see the schedule of upcoming topics.
While we wish everyone could come to a cooking class at the Sanctuary, we realize that’s not possible. So we post class recipes along with lots of additional recipes for you to try at home. Visit our recipe gallery or use our search tool on the right to find exactly what you're looking for.

We want you to be “in the know” about all these things, so we frequently share things that we think will help you in your journey.
