Hi, it’s Justin! Welcome to my 7th international cookbook Kickstarter project. Way back in 2012, I launched my first project with Kickstarter The Lotus and the Artichoke – Vegan Recipes from World Adventures, followed by the German edition (Vegane Rezepte eines Weltreisenden) in 2013. The series continued with English and German publications of: The Lotus and the Artichoke – MÉXICO (2014), SRI LANKA (2015), MALAYSIA (2016), INDIA (2017) and ETHIOPIA (2018).

My first book has been a bestseller for almost eight years, but ever since the sequels came out, I’ve wanted to go back and massively upgrade the visuals on the original book: to re-do the cover artwork and re-shoot most of the food photos. After publishing 5 other books and spending additional years in the kitchens of the world, I knew I could improve the recipesadd outstanding dishes that didn’t make it into the first versions, and bring more culinary authenticity and cultural awareness to the entire book.

The newly updated, re-photographed and freshly illustrated edition of The Lotus and the Artichoke – Vegan Recipes from World Adventures is my classic, first journey in the world of vegan cookbooks reimagined and upgraded. It’s my tribute to powerful memories, awesome individuals, and fantastic meals that I’ve made, found, and shared with countless others like you.

I’ve wanted to re-create my first cookbook for years, but the opportunity didn’t really arise until the surprises and challenges that have been this monster of a year, 2020.

As of October 30th, this project has raised $4,000 of their $7,014 goal. This project has 20 day left to raise the $7,014 goal or it will not be funded. For a pledge of $6, you will get one E-book.  For a pledge of $30, you will get one book.  To learn more and to pledge money, go to:
