Two Dollar Radio Guide to Vegan Cooking by Eric Obenauf, Jean-Claude van Randy, Speed Dog

"The Two Dollar Radio Guide to Vegan Cooking is a perfectly hilarious way to learn some badass recipes. In the first of a new *very well-priced* guidebook series from the publisher, celebrity chefs Jean Claude Van Randy and Speed Dog venture out to solve mysteries and "slay the hunger demons."
—Gary Lovely (Marketing Manager; The Book Loft), BuzzFeed News

This Guide to Vegan Cooking is a distinctively imaginative spin on a cookbook that could only come from the minds at Two Dollar Radio, combining equal-parts vegan cheffing prowess, humorous stories of adventure and mystery, and punk rock. 

Imagine Parts Unknown with Anthony Bourdain. But focused on hyping vegan food. Crossed with Scooby Doo. A vegan diet is on the rise and Two Dollar Radio Headquarters in Columbus, Ohio, has become a vegan comfort food mecca thanks to celebrity chefs Jean-Claude van Randy and Speed Dog (with constructive criticism from Eric Obenauf). Join them in this guide as they craft delectable recipes, solve mysteries, and slay Vegan Hunger Demons.

Synopsis

If you've searched online for a recipe, you've likely encountered a digressive treatise on family history or mundane childhood reflection, none of which actually has anything to do with how to make enchilada sauce. After extensive scrolling, you've really only uncovered that self-taught chef/blogger Linda needs to talk to a professional counselor about her relationship with her mother.

In this Two Dollar Radio Guide to Vegan Cooking, executive vegan chefs Jean-Claude van Randy and Speed Dog (with constructive criticism from Eric Obenauf) unearth a fount of vegan cheffing knowledge. In addition to exquisite recipes and vegan life hacks, they, too, view food as a story: nary a meal is prepared without recalling when Speed Dog summited Old Goat Mountain in Banff, armed with nothing more than a sack full of cherry Ring Pops and a wily pack burro.

This Guide to Vegan Cooking is for you if:
* You’re looking for satisfying comfort food;
* You’re interested in a vegan diet but are having trouble giving up cheese;
* You’re (vegan) fishing for accessible recipes that don’t require
hard-to-find ingredients you can’t pronounce;
* You crave ADVENTURE.

We are all explorers, vegan food explorers — join us on this culinary journey as we slay Vegan Hunger Demons.

Reviews

"The Two Dollar Radio Guide to Vegan Cooking is a perfectly hilarious way to learn some badass recipes. In the first of a new *very well-priced* guidebook series from the publisher, celebrity chefs Jean Claude Van Randy and Speed Dog venture out to solve mysteries and "slay the hunger demons."
—Gary Lovely (Marketing Manager; The Book Loft), BuzzFeed News

"Probably the most fun we've ever had reading a cookbook! If you're looking for a) a romp of a read and b) accessible and delicious vegan ideas to add to your arsenal, look no further."
Anna Weber, White Whale Bookstore, Pittsburgh, PA (@whitewhalebks, Instagram)

"Like everything [Two Dollar Radio] does, this one is strange and delightful and more of a story featuring recipes than a standard cookbook."
—Sadie Dupuis (@sad13 Instagram), author of Mouthguard, and frontperson of Speedy Ortiz

"This book is an utter delight; it's super-weird and funny and full of mouth-watering recipes. In short, it's the best kind of emblem you could brandish to try to replicate the joy-full, delicious experience of being at $2 Radio HQ in person."
—Janet Geddis, Avid Bookshop (Athens, GA)

"Loaded with colorful photographs, stories behind our favorite TDRHQ eats, and easy recipes... We love this cookbook and hope you do too!"
—Columbus Veg Community, Instagram: @columbusvegcommunity

"Can’t find a store-bought dairy-free cheese you like? Make your own. Made with simple ingredients you can find anywhere, this dairy-free queso comes together with just a quick blitz in the blender. Drizzle it over tacos, douse it over nachos, swap it with traditional pizza sauce, or toss it with penne for a buffalo-style mac and cheese. Your imagination is your only limitation—this sauce is fantastic on everything!"

"Three years after opening a bookstore and café with a bar in Columbus, Ohio, indie publisher Two Dollar Radio is combining its expertise in publishing with the culinary expertise of its two chefs on staff to produce the kind of cookbook that only the unconventional and multifaceted company would create."

Author

Jean-Claude van Randy vegan chef and author of Two Dollar Radio Guide to Vegan Cooking
One is not simply born a Jean-Claude; one must become a Jean-Claude. The title is earned. No, Jean-Claude van Randy was born with an unassuming name (Randall) in an unassuming city (Sheboygan, Wisconsin 53081). He had a bike with a kickstand and liked to race his friends from the cul-de-sac to the fancy, “uppity” stoplight of Lincoln Boulevard. He infrequently won. Randy has two embossed certificates that you can't touch above his mahogany desk in his executive chef's office at Two Dollar Radio Headquarters in Columbus, Ohio, and prefers you refer to his hair decisions as a Kentucky waterfall, not a mullet — Jean-Claude van Damme never had to answer these questions.


Speed Dog vegan chef and author of Two Dollar Radio Guide to Vegan Cooking
Speed Dog
's the drummer in the band. He likes cherry Ring Pops, adventuring, and vegan cheffing. After his Aunt Louise asked him to write a column in her newspaper, the Lake Erie Weekly Herald, dishing on all things Cleveland, Geneva-on-the-Lake, and Upper Ashtabula, he became a syndicated food columnist.


Eric Obenauf vegan chef and author of Two Dollar Radio Guide to Vegan Cooking
