Ellen Jaffe Jones, author of “Kitchen Divided”

Ellen Jaffe Jones—the running coach, cooking instructor and author of the enormously popular book, “Eat Vegan On $4 A Day”—discusses her new book, “Kitchen Divided: Vegan Dishes For Semi-Vegan Households.” kitchen-dividedShe begins the conversation by reviewing a bit about “Eat Vegan On $4 A Day” (which we’d discussed  3572645  in her previous appearance on the show: Nov. 23, 2011), including why she thinks the book took off the way it did. Jones also addresses the reaction to “Kitchen Divided,” so far (it was published in June or 2013), and her impetus for writing it. She explains about her own kitchen divided, noting her husband is not vegan, and her grown daughters aren’t either (though one is a vegetarian). Because this interview took place on the eve of Thanksgiving, Jones discusses some scenarios—and recipes—from “Kitchen Divided” she thinks would be particularly apt for a day that, for many, revolves around eating. She also touches on the mixed response that can greet something like this week’s announcement that Al Gore has gone vegan, a quick glimpse of what her next book will be about, and more.     (http://vegcoach.com,  www.facebook.com/KitchenDivided)
