**New: How To Fail At Vegan Cooking

Want to get started down the road to vegan cooking but don’t want to be too good at it? If your kitchen is way too clean and peaceful and you’d like to incorporate some (potentially) delicious disasters, this book is for you.

Newbie vegan T.J. Baer shares cooking fails and not-quite-fails in this entertaining mini-cookbook. Readers can delight in family favorites like Sad Soggy Sushi, Breaded Cauliflower of Awesome, and Benny’s Favorite Cat Food (for our feline and pescatarian friends). Fans of cat pictures will find a few of those as well, along with at least one Cat Cooking Tip which should serve cooks of all species well. Settle in with this book and prepare to make some wonderful and delicious mistakes.
