International Vegan Cookbook Seeks Funds Online

Cookbook and travel log The Lotus and the Artichoke is a testament to the fact that cruelty-free eating is an international affair.

In December 2012, with the help of hundreds of backpackers, globetrotter and food-enthusiast Justin P. Moore released The Lotus and the Artichoke, a 216-page collection of stories, images, and vegan recipes from around the world. Moore is back on Kickstarter, trying to collect $8,500 by February 27 so he can publish the book in German (he has lived in Berlin since 2001), and re-publish the original English version. Each pledge receives a prize depending on the amount given: $5 donators will get The Lotus and the Artichoke eBook, while $95 pledges receive an invitation to a five-course Berlin vegan dinner party hosted by the author.
