The Rust Belt Vegan Kitchen is a community cookbook created by  professional and home chefs living and working in the Rust Belt. Recipes represent the diversity of the region, and include vegan versions of Polish pierogis, Detroit coney dogs, Hungarian paprikash, Slovak kolaches, Mexican conchas, West African peanut stew, German sauerkraut balls, Cincinnati chili, Slovenian fish fry, chitterings, and many more. 

The cooks and chefs offer stories about their recipes, including family history, culinary traditions, and personal narratives explaining how they were created.The book also contains resources on how to stock a vegan pantry, guides to useful equipment, and basic how-to’s for “veganizing” staples. 

Infusing old world recipes with a new level of creativity for a changing audience, the Rust Belt Vegan Kitchen is unpretentious, accessible, and fun.
