I love this book’s title! This is the perfect way to think about critical thinking, veganism, and activism. Not just one, but all three – perhaps in chronological order? Oh yeah.
Think! Eat! Act!: A Sea Shepherd Chef’s Vegan Recipes, published Microcosm Publishing (one of the best publishers evah) is a brand new cookbook by Raffaella Tolicetti, a galley cook for Sea Shepherd. Beyond just a collection of recipes, this book is full of stories and activist profiles from someone who has cooked vegan food for animal activists as a way of living her values. 80 recipes with full color photos 190+ pages! Raffaella will be in our little city on Tuesday July 29. Come meet her and see what this unique paper-bound thing has to offer.
Not vegan? That’s OK! Not an activist? That’s OK! Not a good cook? Even better! You don’t have to be vegan to advocate for animals. You don’t have to be an activist to try veganism. You don’t have to know what you are doing to come to the book reading and meet Raffaella.
And if that weird little monologue wasn’t enough to entice you, let me quote my friend Greg:
“Veganism is about staying committed to an idea. But how do we maintain that diet and way of life in the midst of a culture that doesn’t often agree with us? This book offers incredible examples of people who have maintained their commitment to veganism even in light of seemingly impossible conditions. If you want incredible recipes, inspirational stories, and new ideas on the vegan way of life, this book is essential.” – Greg Bennick, Professional Speaker, Humanitarian, Producer, Writer
So come on down to one of the best book stores ever and meet this amazing woman, learn more about her book, maybe even by the book, and hang out with vegans, cooks, Sea Shepherd fans, and whoever else is smart enough to spend their Tuesday night doing something like this. See you there!
