Another Dinner is Possible: Recipes for Food and Thought
Another Dinner is Possible: Recipes for Food and Thought
Another Dinner Is Possible is not your average vegan cookbook—It’s a guide to developing a healthier relationship with the food we eat and the planet we inhabit. And it is an exploration of how food affects us on all levels and how we can improve our practical and political relationship to it.

Another Dinner is Possible: Recipes for Food and ThoughtMore Details
he emphasis is on innovative simplicity: these recipes use easy-to-find and easy-to-prepare ingredients combined in unexpected ways. All the basics of everyday cooking are covered for those just starting out in the kitchen (with detailed instructions and essential tips on everything from sharpening knives to choosing the right variety of potato), but even more seasoned chefs will find a surprising number of must-try recipes for original concoctions and vegan versions of old favorites.

There are also Korean recipes, vegan versions of Scandinavian cold fish and classic Jewish dishes.

Just as valuable are the numerous original essays written by activists, covering topics ranging from vegan parenting and Western nutrition to reducing waste, eating seasonally, growing-your-own, brewing-your-own, and cooking on a large scale.

Mike and Isy are cooks with Brighton’s Anarchist Teapot mobile kitchen, a volunteer collective that cooks for activist and community gatherings and mobilisations across the UK and Europe.

Vegan Freak: Being Vegan in a Non-Vegan World
Going vegan is easy, and even easier if you have the tools at hand to make it work right. In the second edition of this informative and practical guide, two seasoned vegans help you learn to love your inner vegan freak. Loaded with tips, advice, and stories, this book is the key to helping you thrive as a happy, healthy, and sane vegan in a decidedly non-vegan world that doesn’t always get what you’re about.

In this sometimes funny, sometimes irreverent, and sometimes serious guide that’s not afraid to tell it like it is, you will:

* find out how to go vegan in three weeks or less with our “cold tofu method”

*discover and understand the arguments for ethical, abolitionist veganism

* learn how to convince family, friends, and others that you haven’t joined a vegetable cult by going vegan

*get some advice on dealing with people in your life without creating havoc or hurt feelings

* learn to survive restaurants, grocery stores, and meals with omnivores

*find advice on how to respond when people ask you if you “like, live on apples and twigs.”

In a revised and rewritten second edition, Vegan Freak: Being Vegan in a Non-Vegan World is your guide to embracing vegan freakdom. Come on, get your freak on!

Hot Damn & Hell Yeah / The Dirty South by Ryan Splint
Hot Damn & Hell Yeah / The Dirty South by Ryan Splint
A new, completely redesigned and re-written third edition with a new recipe (Crazy Hippie Spring Rolls!) of two great vegan cookbooks combined! An anthology of Vanessa’s “The Dirty South”, meets Ryan Splint’s Australian masterpiece “Hot Damn and Hell Yeah”. HD&HY is a finely illustrated and designed collection of recipes that aren’t afraid of spices but are suited for those into easy to find ingredients that don’t taste like sawdust. The Dirty South is a unique take on southern cooking, vegan style with some tasty delectables, especially for those not afraid of garlic or baking. Sizzling with great cooking ideas and recipes, nutrition isn’t always the first priority for either of these editors but the recipes are damn tasty!
Hot Damn & Hell Yeah / The Dirty South by Ryan SplintMore Details

In DIY you bust your gut and it sometimes feels like you don’t get much in return. But there are exceptions to every rule. Hot Damn and Hell Yeah is an indispensible vegan cookbook, especially if you want to cook Mexican style food. There recipes are clear and simple,and avoid overly esoteric ingredients. Points also go to the amazing – and I mean really amazing – cartoons of skeletons on pretty much every page. It’s a nice change from the normal clip art carrots and cauliflowers that most of my vegan cookbooks seem to have. I should probably also point out that its probably not the healthiest of vegan diets, but then again far healthier than any meat based diet! On the flip side is Vanessa Johnson’s Dirty South cookbook, which I had come across before. If you’re looking to spice up your diet, then you can’t really go wrong with this book.
