Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

"From the first page of this cookbook, I could tell Abjorn Intonsus and I would get along well: Everything in this cookbook is anti-copyrighted. For, even though our choices in how we eat and consume music clearly differ, I believe our values align in more than one other way. All the same, I was ready to learn. And learn I did. Extensive notes on ingredients and preparation methods adorn the book, which, for a kitchen clod like me, work out very nicely. From soups & sauces, to how not to handle a habanero pepper, to main dishes that I’m going to begin incorporating into my extremely thin selection, nearly every instruction is easy and appealing to “cooks” of any skill level. I’ll be making a lot of peanut butter sauces for myself in the coming days, as well as adding tofu to my dishes more confidently. It’s times like these when I am glad that I have culinarily-inclined housemates and inspiring books like this to help me kick the Ramen diet. I truly am excited to claim this as my first useful cookbook."  —Indie Street

"I can't believe it. I'm holding in my own two li'l hands a bound copy of the three issues of the long since out of print zine Please Don't Feed the Bears written in the 90s . I still have my dog-eared, food-covered copies on my shelf, but I'm a packrat. I can't tell ya what a great joy it is to see this in print again, and in book format! For those of you that didn't get to read them the first time around, get ready for an (animal-free) treat! PDFTB reads like the little spitfire brother of Soy not Oi!, where vegan recipes are listed with punk rock song tracks for what to listen to while cooking. The recipes are great for the new vegetarian who is looking for a wide variety of straightforward tasty recipes. The book combines recipes from all the original zines, divided into courses. The recipes are easy to follow, fun to read, international in variety, and taste great! These zines and Soy not Oi! were the ones I referred to most when learning how to cook vegan food. Buy this. For the sentiment if you used to read the zines. For the quality if you never got the chance to. You want this on your shelf. Excellent. Kudos to Microcosm for putting this out."  —Maygun w/Profane Existence Magazine

"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
