People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals’ President Ingrid Newkirk is re-releasing her vegan cookbook The Compassionate Cook, Or “Please Don’t Eat The Animals!” First published in 1993, the book features more than 200 cruelty-free recipes and has sold more than 50,000 copies. The new edition has been prompted by the recent increase in public figures, like President Bill Clinton, discussing the benefits of a plant-based diet. In a press release, The Price Is Right’s Bob Barker says, “I became a vegetarian because of my concern for animals, but I soon learned to appreciate the many health benefits to be derived from recipes such as you will find in The Compassionate Cook.”
