So Raw its Downright Filthy a Raw Vegan Cookbook
by Joshua Ploeg
48p, purple on pink, 4.25"x7"
Joshua Ploeg is a travelling punker vegan chef who makes incredible food. His cookbook "Something Delicious This Way Comes" has some of my all-time favorite recipes ever. "So Raw" continues his tradition of irreverant food excellence and complicated delicious flavors by taking a curmudgeonly approach to raw foodism. Betwixt grumpings about the trendy problematics of a raw diet, Ploeg drops recipes for 41 or so raw vegan treets, like Hush Puppies, Pho, and -uh- "Shitakesbury Steak". Nicely accompanied by photos of extreme punk house filth. -EF
