Our Photographer’s 5 Favorite Images from the Vegan Cookbook

Today: Food52 photographer James Ransom chooses his favorite shots from the forthcoming Food52 Vegan Cookbook (available for pre-order!). 

Sixty dishes, countless shots, lots of leftover containers, and one seriously awesome book: That’s the Food52 Vegan Cookbook in a nutshell. (Or, more accurately cashew…shell?)

More: A look at the Food52 book covers that could’ve been.

And while the book’s available for pre-order now and out in just a few weeks, we’re all just too dang excited to keep anything a secret for much longer. So, without further ado, here are my 5 favorite shots (and, boy, was it hard to choose):
