From pierogi to paprikash, chitterlings to chimichurri, the Rust Belt is home to myriad culinary traditions passed down from one generation to the next. Now, these family recipes and more are freshly accessible to vegan eaters.

A community cookbook created by professional and home chefs, Rust Belt Vegan Kitchen represents the diversity of the region, and includes vegan versions of old world standards as well as recipes for Cleveland-style Polish Boys, Chicago Deep Dish Pizza, Detroit-style Coney Dogs, Cincinnati Chili,
and so much more. 

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

Infusing classic recipes with creativity for a contemporary audience, Rust Belt Vegan Kitchen is unpretentious, accessible, and fun.
