A vegan cookbook in the vein of Soy Not Oi with hundreds of recipes and a wide variety of interesting dishes in here, too many to even try and pick out a few favorites to mention. Also, like Soy Not Oi there are articles about being vegan, numerous illustrations, and music to listen to while preparing food. Even a crossword about your favorite metal trivia to do while baking lasagna. It's exciting that after all of these years there is someone who has expanded on the groundbreaking idea of a political cookzine for the ungourmet, limited budget average punk.
