Bake and Destroy
Vegan Recipes That'll Punch Your Taste Buds in the Mouth

Natalie Slater has been described as "Martha Stewart meets Iron Maiden," taking vegan cooking to places it has never been before. Influenced by slasher films, pro-wrestling, punk rock and heavy metal, her quirky-yet-delicious comfort foods are a refreshing take on vegan eating with award-winning flavors. Along the way, her off-color humor, irreverent rants and density of pop-culture references will make you laugh out loud.

Inside this high-energy cookbook you'll find recipes for Bike Messenger Brownies—inspired by the espresso-infused chai latte these speed demons use to fuel up; and Crouching Cornbread, Hidden Broccoli—Natalie's sneaky way of getting her son to eat vegetables. Other creations include the Grilled Mac ‘n' Cheez Sandwich, Taco Lasagna, Chick-O Cheesecake, and her Shepherd's Pie Pizza, about which she writes, "Some people were born to rock n' roll. Others were born to ride. I was born to put mashed potatoes on pizza."

Bake and Destroy was named one of the most anticipated cookbooks of the year by VegNews.

    This book is full of incredibly unique and new recipes that kind of blow my mind- Thanksgiving Green Bean Casserole Pizza, Nachos Cupcakes, Whoopie pies that look like hamburgers, Falafel waffles... I pretty much want to try every recipe. Many of the recipes have a Chicago style twist ...

    I reviewed this book after reading it, but before preparing any recipes. I have come back to edit to report success with two I tried: frozen lemonade pie and Dorneatos kale chips. My impression that the recipes were careful and adequately tested, with clear instructions has so far been...

    Such a fantastic and EASY cookbook. I can also add meat to recipes if I feel like it. The ingredients are not difficult to find or too expensive. The page layout, cute/badass cartoons, and overall tone of the book just rules. ...

    Not a vegan by any stretch, but I enjoy the recipes in this book. Love Natalie's tone and the easy to follow recipes. You can see just how much research went into each recipe by her trying to use items that can be easily found and not having a million ingredients for each food item.I b...
