Vegetarian Traditions reveals recipes for many of the dishes that established the Inn Season Café as a favorite Midwest destination for natural, vegetarian and vegan dining. During the 20 years that Vutetakis was chef/proprietor (until 2002), he introduced metro Detroiters to creative, fresh and healthy dishes inspired by his travels to Greece and India. 


More than 150 vegan entrees, soups, salads and desserts in an easy-to-follow format are accompanied by color photos. The 200-page hardcover retails for $29.99 and is available on, at select bookstores and at the Inn Season Café, located at 500 E. Fourth St. in Royal Oak. Signed copies can be purchased on the author's website,, where he shares recipes, videos and stories.
