Want to turn your grandmother's muffin recipe vegan? Need a signature vegetarian entree that will wow a date or win over a pot luck? Lisa Jervis, founder of Bitch magazine and author of Cook Food: A Manualfesto for Easy, Healthy, Local Eating, will work with you to develop a delicious, healthy vegetarian or vegan recipe that you can call your very own.
More than just a rousing food manifesto and a nifty set of tools, Cook Food makes preparing tasty, wholesome meals simple and accessible for those hungry for both change and scrumptious fare. If you’re used to getting your meals from a package—or the delivery guy—or if you think you don’t know how to cook, this is the book for you.
If you want to eat healthier but aren’t sure where to start, or if you’ve been reading about food politics but don’t know how to bring sustainable eating practices into your everyday life, Cook Food will give you the scoop on how, while keeping your taste buds satisfied. With a conversational, do-it-yourself vibe, a practical approach to everyday cooking on a budget, and a whole bunch of animal-free recipes, Cook Food will have you cooking up a storm, tasting the difference, thinking globally and eating locally.
