Buy Our Books

Plant Candi were instrumental in opening Nordvegan – Norway’s premier vegan dining experience. After much demand from customers for them to produce a cook book, they naturally turned to us. So we created recipes showcasing the best Nordvegan has to offer, plus a whole host of additional plant-based recipes that everyone will enjoy. With recipes anyone can handle and for every occasion, this cook book is sure to delight vegans and non-vegans alike. Nordvegan will also fund the planting of a tree for every book that’s sold, so there’s more reason than every to grab a copy.

Having worked with the guys from Plant Candi on a number of projects, I always look forward to creative energy they bring, and can rest assured they always deliver a fantastic product.

Opening Nordvegan was a big undertaking for us, but Reuben did an amazing job getting the kitchen up and running, pulling together and training a great team. and along with Peter desiging some fantastic menus and creating the recipes in our top selling cook book.

I highly recommend PlantCandi for their professionalism and excellence.

Mark Galvin

Reuben and Plant Candi have been a fundamental and crucial part in starting WAKU WAKU, the biggest vegan restaurant of Europe. They put together the kitchen hardware, hired and trained the kitchen team and launched a mind-blowing vegan menu.
Their professional approach to challenges and their limitless effort and passion are not less than impressive. For months there were queues at the entrance with people wanting to experience their excellent food and till this day the restaurant has been full 7 days a week.

‘Reuben Waller and Plant Candi are magicians. They have a gift for making vegan food so delicious you’d eat it even if you weren’t a vegan.’

Matthew FortFood Critic and Writer

As a life long lover of the business and heading up large F&B groups around the world I’ve been lucky enough to have dined with the best of the best.

The love of my life is an organic only vegetarian as well. She is a fabulous chef and spoils me often. We have a plant based restaurant at our Sydney Ovolo location and eat there frequently so I feel I have a good understanding of plant based dining. Having the opportunity to try Reuben’s plant based menu was mind blowing. Incredible flavours, tricks on the mind with textures and nostalgic tastes. Feeling like I’m actually having duck pancakes but not was a wild ride! Every dish was seasoned to perfection, beautiful presentations and genius creativity.

I’ve now been converted that you can enjoy an incredible night of dining without my life long staple go to meats..
