Mississippi Vegan: Recipes and Stories from a Southern Boy’s Heart
We had the pleasure to meet The Mississippi Vegan this fall at Seed Food and Wine Festival. With a major endorsement from celeb chef Jamie Oliver, Mississippi Vegan celebrates the gorgeous and delicious possibilities of plant-based Southern cuisine. Inspired by the landscape and flavors of his childhood on the Mississippi Gulf Coast, Timothy Pakron found his heart, soul, and calling in cooking the Cajun, Creole, and southern classics of his youth. In his debut cookbook, he shares 125 plant-based recipes, all of which substitute ingredients without sacrificing depth of flavor and reveal the secret tradition of veganism in southern cooking. Mississippi Vegan is an ode to the transporting and ethereal beauty of the food and places you love. Order your copy now.
