Culinary Activism at its Best

"Hey, Dino! I heard you wrote a book ..."

"Hmm?"

"Yeah. Because I see you come out here with your lunch every day, and whenever I smell it, I think 'There's no meat in there, but I want to eat that anyway.'"

"Oh! (laughter) That's really kind of you. Yes, I wrote a cookbook."

"No way."

"And it's published. You can ask for it at B&N."

"O_O!"

It's gratifying to know that just by eating my lunch every day, I'm turning people on to the fact that vegans eat well. I love it.
