This very unique vegan cookbook was written by a vegan punk rocker who spent years “…surviving on potato chips….” The author not only includes recipes in his book, but also chronicles his punk lifestyle…gigs, influences, touring, etc…pretty interesting stuff! I bought this book at Hot Topic more than 5 years ago. It must be out of print now, because I saw that it is selling for over $70 on amazon.com and it’s not even a hard cover book! The used version is also available for MUCH LESS!
My thoughts on the book…? Some of the recipes are a little too simple and might be a little boring for some. However, some of the recipes are actually very good and tasty, and really speak to the home cook. There’s a recipe I like entitled Mixed Veg noodles that lists one of the ingredients as 2 handfuls of mushrooms (shiitakes, or whatever you can afford). This is a good cookbook for “everyday” food and also for starving students or those watching their budgets. Overall, I think it’s a great book to have on your cookbook shelf.
