Barefoot in the Kitchen #1

by Ashley Rowe

Maybe I'm just a weirdo, but I really like reading cookbooks and cookzines and this first issue of Ashley Rowe's half-size cookzine is so freakin' cute. Packed with a really nice balance of essays about food and recipes for cooking stuff up, this is a good place to start for folks just learning to cook vegan. Learn how to make a basic white sauce, your own seitan, a basic vegs mac'n'cheese, cornbread and cookies. But, you know, folks who have been vegan for awhile will most definitely benefit from nice variations for standard recipes like the "Cinnamon Buns of Doom." Is it just me or does everything in this zine sound delicious?! Also, Ashley includes a handy restaurant guide for pretty much the whole state of California.
