This Ain't No Picnic: Your Vegan Punk Rock Cookbook

This Ain't No Picnic: Your Vegan Punk Rock Cookbook

by Dalton Blanco, Vice Cooler and Joshua Ploeg

This Ain't No Picnic is the first cookbook featuring creative and delicious recipes that match the quality and presentation of a gourmet restaurant with the self-parody and humor of punk rock culture and history. A comedic art book full of social commentary, it explores and improves the favorite foods of historic punk rockers. Through exclusive interviews, Picnic treats you to the delectibles they could—and perhaps should—have been eating. How to make s'mores with a zippo, cook without a stove or oven, and 80 new recipes of Joshua Ploeg's magical food and flavor combinations like you've never dreamed of.

"this awesome looking recipe compendium is presented in a humorous, self-effacing style that pokes fun at all things punk while simultaneously teaching you how to cook vegan-style."

"The recipes range from restaurant worthy (lentil loaf, burrito with cucumber salsa) to quick and dirty (zippo smores, credit card sandwich), but it's clear Joshua knows what he's doing in the kitchen."

"When Joey Ramone sang about eating chicken vindaloo on Second Avenue, he was clearly talking about zinester chef Joshua Ploeg's vegan version. That recipe and more inspired by punk rock classics are included in This Ain't No Picnic. Plus, Joshua includes tips on getting by in the kitchen DIY-style (think microwave blanching or making pizza on your stovetop). There's even a chapter with vegan dishes created to honor punk legends (despite his tough appearance, you know John Lydon of the Sex Pistols loves nothing better than lavender tea cakes, right?)"
