Vegan Hero #2 Isa Chandra Moskowitz

The vegan bible

The vegan bible

There must have been a time before Isa but I can’t picture it. Her cookbooks are the mainstay of the vegan cook. My two favourites are Veganomicon and Vegan with a vengeance. All her books are written with humour and a sense of fun.

She makes vegan cooking exciting and accessible and her recipes are for dishes that anyone would recognise as ‘normal’ food – non-threatening, non-scary, something even a meat eater could get excited about. They are dishes for everyone, not the health conscience, quinoa munching, heath food shopping few. This is the kind of writing and cooking we will need if veganism is ever going to become more widespread.

I especially value her recipes for things like blueberry pancakes. Food that I thought I had given up for ever when going vegan but suddenly so easy to make and so delicious. The website, blog and forum on her Post Punk Kitchen are a constant source of inspiration and help and I think she must have done more than any other to bring veganism to the masses. And for this reason she is a Vegan Hero.
