deadly  May 30, 2006
i lived through the time spoken about in this book and it shares many good memories with the reader. The recipes are straightforward vegan fare but good enough to eat. I found it the sort of book you could pick up and open on any page and read about how bands like Green Day and NOFX played in Dublin with no contracts and to crowds of 50 people. You can then try the recipe associated with that gig and feel part of this wonderful punk rock community
The collaborative effort of more than 120 people who donated their vegan recipes  Jul 4, 2005
Please Feed Me: A Punk Vegan Cookbook is a unique and welcome addition to any avant garde music enthusiasts cookbook collection because every recipe is accompanied by an anecdote by a band that performed at the Hope Collective -- a popular punk event in Dublin, Ireland, which Niall McGuirk helped to maintain for over a decade and which became a kind of template and inspiration for punk music events across Ireland and the United Kingdom. The collaborative effort of more than 120 people who donated their vegan recipes and thoughts on the importance of the punk rock community and culture, Please Feed Me uniquely illustrates the connections between community, art, activism, health, and the vegan diet.
Strange little cookbook  Apr 28, 2005
This presents first as a memoir rather than a cookbook. Must have been a magical era in punk music-- I'm dead envious reading about the musical experience. The food is somewhat remote, no pictures except of the bands. The recipes come from the bands as well, and can be chaotic. Which is fine-- it is, after all, a punk cookbook. Not well organized from the cookbook point of view-- contents are presented according to concert playlists, and not well indexed. I haven't made any of the food, but it's an interesting read, if repetitive. The intro is pieced together from the recipe copy-- you'll recognize entire sections as you skim along. I was hoping for something more like Cooking with the Dead, by Grateful Dead writer Elizabeth Zipern, which is more approachable from the food angle. I'm going to try a few recipes to see if this one is worth keeping long term. It'll be tough to judge, though, as all the recipes are by different cooks. So, overall interesting, but definately not an overview of fundamental vegan cooking. This one is more of a curiosity, a vivid portrayal of a period in punk music, complete history of the Hope Collective, with probably a few recipe gems. If you were fortunate enough to be in Ireland with these guys, it'll be a treasured keepsake.

Buy this book from I'm not affiliated with them, but they're great!
Please feed me  Jan 13, 2005
Alright, I got this last night and read through most of it. About half of the text is devoted to telling the story of a volunteer-run club and all of the punk bands and experiences that the people who worked there have. The other half of the text is devoted to vegan recipes that they collected from the bands.

I'd say the best part about the recipes is that they all seem really cheap - lots of lentils, rice, potatoes, and other cheapo-staples.
The recipes are fun, but you could definetly get by without this if you have much experience. There are ALOT of curries and like 3 guacamole recipes. There are several things like burritos that are just obvious - crumbles, veggies, salsa, and guac. Then there are some really cool ones. There was a squatter that had a recipe that involved finding a hubcap, sterilizing it with booze, mixing in all the crusts, skins, (and no, not crusties or skinheads, but it's funny that I wrote that without thinking) or any kind of food that you can and put it in with either water or more booze, then cook it over a campfire. There was also a "bread sandwhich" recipe, which was a slice of bread in between 2 slices of bread.

I'd say for me, it was worth the $10 because I enjoyed reading it and probably will make the stuff that seems really cheap, and alot of the curries too. There was a sheapard's pie that I'm itching to make in it too. Plus I had fun reading about all the punks and how the collective operated. I'm not sure if the average person would be into it though.
