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. In 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! 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. Thoroughly illustrated with eye-catching drawings and clearly laid-out graphics, 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 recipes while reflecting the DIY punk rock sensibility of zine culture.

Review quote

"What I enjoy most about Please Don't is its brilliant randomness. Humorous drawings of bears and other wildlife dot the pages. There's a 'Heavy Metal is the Law' crossword puzzle to keep you busy as you wait for your dough to rise. And finally, there's the tattoo gun recipe, which is just priceless." -- "The recipes are great for the new vegetarian who is looking for a wide variety of straightforward tasty recipes.The recipes are easy to follow, fun to read, international in variety, and taste great! ... Buy this!" -- Profane Existence

Our customer reviews

"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. "show more
