1924 – Penniless Sci-Fi author H.P. Lovecraft writes his first story that includes the Necronomicon (book of the dead), a book of spells and incantations designed for protecting yourself from malevolent intergalactic space creatures. His stories don’t become famous until after he dies, but many future generations of geeky teens are enthralled by Lovecraft’s paranoid and supernatural musings.
2008 – Isa Chandra Moskowitz and Terry Hope Romero bring forth the Veganomicon, a book of culinary spells and delicious incantations designed for protecting yourself from vegan cooking boredom. Luckily for us, they are still alive and will be joining us this week to talk about their latest vegan bible. If Vegan with a Vengeance was just enough to whet your appetite, and if Vegan Cupcakes Take Over the World filled your belly with cake-y goodness, you won’t want to miss this interview with New York’s vegan queens. Tune in to hear about cooking, community, and Terry’s biblical carob moment.
