POOR Morrissey. He’s just so… so… hungry. And meat is murder, so that narrows his options by a lot. Until now, at least! With the arrival of the Defensive Eating with Morrissey cookbook, our dear Moz no longer needs to suffer such terrible hunger, such ruthless indecision, or the emotional impact of a major blood sugar crash at the worst possible moment.
These 100+ vegan recipes make enough unbelievably delicious, poetic food for him to eat his fill and have plenty left over for later. Sweetness, he’s even saved enough for you.
This book accomanies Comfort Eating With Nick Cave: Vegan Recipes To Get Deep Inside of You, another Cookbook by the same writers (you can read about it HERE).
Each promises a unique, holistic, and wholesome take on vegan eating from the vantage point of a deep fan of either artist. Should you prefer to eat meat, however, just remember that you can do so in front of these books, but they will be very, very disappointed in you.
If you’ve listened to the Morrissey manifesto at all throughout the years, you know by now that meat is murder.
These smartly curated recipes, featuring titles like ‘Boy With The Corn In His Side’ (a corn on the cob recipe – Eat and listen to “The Boy With the Thorn In His Side”) and ‘Peas Let Me Get What I Want’ (Peas like “Please, Please, Please Let Me Get What I Want”), each accompanied by an incredibly unique illustration, like Morrissey drowning in a sea of baked beans.
Defensive Eating with Morrissey: Vegan Recipes from the One You Left Behind is witty, entertaining and informative, all while keeping you eating right. If you’re vegan, then buy this for the recipes, if not, then buy it as a new start.
it’s been a long time since Moz has been this entertaining
