Product description

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!In the spirit of Soy Not Oi, 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 recipies while reflecting the DIY punk rock sensibility of zine culture.

Customer reviews

By a Book Depository customer 10 Dec 2008 3

"When my book arrived and I opened it, I was so confused by the mess and couldn't quite figure out if it was actually organised/arranged in some way... it's set up like a notebook/zine and there's loads of sketches, handwriting, quotes, music suggestions etc. Every time you flip through it, you'll find something new.
Now onto the actual content of the book... if you love heat/spice, there's some BRILLIANT recipes in here. It's full of hearty winter foods (lots of BEANS, yay!!!) ... all the kind of stuff I'd cook if I were a mum. It's not the boring, light, "rabbit food" you get as "the only vegan option at a restaurant", if you know what I mean.
There's also some excellent sauce recipes and what I would affectionately refer to as "ethnic" food - the most delicious cuisine on the planet... food that isn't "Western". You'll find tons of Mexican, Middle Eastern, African, Asian & European inspired dishes.
The book has a very punk/metal feel to it and anyone even a little "alternative' could most definitely identify with lots of the quotes/music/humour in it. If you can handle working your way through the scribble and mess, the book is well worth your time & money.

Review quote

"148 pages of Vegan recipes and a few odd pages at the back for a homemade teeth whitener and tattoo guns. A unique collection of vegan recipes that are all accompanied by a metal song to play while you are making it because nothing is better than making meat free dishes while hearing a guy growling like a bear. Maybe that is where the title comes from. This, I believe compiles three issues of a vegan cooking zine. It is a unique cookbook full of great recipes and occasional quotes from people as diverse as Samuel Longhorne Clemens and David from Morbid Angel. It makes for a cookbook that you can actually sit down and read. I made a couple of recipes Prairie Fire Reddened Rice, I didn't have the Liturgy - Dawn of Ash lp, so I substituted for a Hellhammer LP I bought in the 80s and it was tasted. The next recipe I searched for by song rather than by recipe. I knew I had an old Slayer lp, so I made the Slaytanic Scrambler. Again, tasty stuff. I am not a vegan, I love chicken wings too much, but I am not the carnivore that must have meat at every meal, so I intend to reference this cookbook from time to time. I would think it would be a must have for a vegan metal fan. --"410 Media"
