The first cookbook to feature creative and delicious vegan recipes that match the quality and presentation of a five-star restaurant whilst never straying from self-parody and humour about punk rock culture and history. While exploring and improving the favourite foods of historic punk rockers through exclusive interviews, Picnic treats home chefs to the delectibles they could - and perhaps should - have been eating instead. Also included are 80 new recipes featuring Joshua Ploeg's magical food and flavour combinations that are out of this world!

Dalton Blanco is an LA based photographer with an edgy style that focuses on risque subject matter. Vice Cooler writes and photographs for Rolling Stone, Vice Magazine, and photographs for ANP Quarterly, i-D Magazine, The Wire, San Francisco Bay Guardian, The Kim Gordon Chronicles, Punk Planet, Maximum Rock N Roll, The Ecstatic Peace Poetry Journals, Venus.
