In the vein of the classic Soy Not Oi cookbook, Please Don’t Feed The Bears compiles three issues of the previously self-published vegan cook zine with a range of tasty and simple animal-free dishes. The collection finally makes available these long-obscure fanzines originally published in the mid 1990s. Here you’ll find incredible recipes for stews, soups, sauces, noodle & bean dishes, baked entrees, deserts and more! There is also a fair smattering of new material bringing this to a whopping 160 pages of deliciousness! These recipes are written to be simple, straightforward, and perfect for the newest convert to the vegan revolution! But far from bring just a vegan cookbook, Please Don’t Feed The Bears reads as a look into vegan lifestyle and underground culture. The book is thoroughly illustrated with eye-catching drawings and clearly laid-out graphics. In addition, the book also includes assorted rantings about music and the politics of leading a vegan lifestyle. Together the book provides easy-to-make and delectable recipes while reflecting the DIY punk rock sensibility of zine culture.
also on the high recommendations list is this cookbook. I knew it in its original zine format; someone (@rambleready?) gave me a copy when I’d only been veg for a year or three. I used it so often that it got dog-eared and water-damaged and chewed up by mice, but I bet it’s still tucked between books somewhere in my cookbook shelf. Please Don’t Feed the Bears is veg cooking minus the “oh no, what if I can’t find a kaffir lime” factor that can be frustrating when you’re first saying to yourself: “wow, if I ate at home I could feed three of my friends for what I’ll spend on myself at a restaurant.” not that restaurants aren’t also fun when you have the scratch to spare! but for me, learning to cook and bake — for myself, for my family, for my friends — has been one of the most joyous journeys of my adult life, and Please Don’t Feed the Bears has been a companion along the path for many years.
tl;dr get this cookbook! it’s full of anybody-can-do-this recipes that won’t break the bank and it’s a lot of fun besides!
