In Vegan with a Vengeance, Isa Chandra Moskowitz, host of the community access vegan cooking show The Post Punk Kitchen, brings the do-it-yourself, community-driven ethos of punk rock into the kitchen. Her cooking philosophy embraces being kind to animals (all recipes are completely animal-product free) and your walletwhile being creative and having fun in the process. She emphasizes staying clear of corporate brand-name foods, and says that cooking should be an innovative, experimental, and completely real experience. This one-of-a-kind cookbook offers 125 recipes for all meals of the day, from stuffed mushrooms to tofu pizza, gingerbread cupcakes to pasta with "alfreda sauce," and is full of tips and tricks on how to keep your diet vegan, inexpensive, and liberated.
Isa Chandra Moskowitz has been cooking up trouble in the New York City punk rock scene since the eighties, when she started hanging out in Manhattan’s Lower East Side. Her public access cooking show, The Post Punk Kitchen, which is filmed in her small Brooklyn apartment, has been a smash hit since it hit the airwaves in 2003. She has been inspiring fans of vegan food and loud music ever since.
