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.

Together the book provides easy-to-make and delectable recipes while reflecting the DIY punk rock sensibility of zine culture.
