In Search of the Lost Taste: The Adventure Vegan Cookbook

Joshua Ploeg's cooking blows my mind so much that a secret door opens in the back of my head and white doves, musical notes, and winged horses fly out. His cooking is transcendent: Dangerous, strange and perfect. It¹s full of colorful tastes that explode in your mouth like Pop Rocks ­flavor combinations you never thought possible. Crazy alchemy. Freaky magic. Joshua's the Traveling Chef; you make an appointment, he shows up at your house with a load of groceries, makes an incredible multi-course vegan meal using your pots and pans, and then he's gone like the Lone Ranger riding into a big Texas sunset. Joshua's been in a bunch of hardcore bands and he brings all the good things punk rock gave us: risk, passion, creativity, and weirdness; then he applies them to his meals. I randomly lucked into one of his dinners last year. I usually eat really fast and mindlessly, but I had to take this one slow and let all the flavors develop and do their respective stuff. Each had itsown distinctive note ­ its own voice that rang out to let it be known that it was something special and unique. It was an experience in the finest sense of the word.

Editorial Reviews

"Some people make simple, filling meals. Others treat cooking like one big science experiment, and there are those who are more successful than others. In Search of the Lost Taste is a vegan cookbook from Joshua Ploeg, a man who takes a fresh and exciting approach to vegan cooking, doing everything from simulated fried food to Miso Marys. With a strange, surreal story alongside the recipes, In Search of the Lost Taste is a cookbook experimental chefs will love."  —Midwest Book Review
