After graduating from college, Brian Patton was back to living at his parents' home in Pennsylvania, a public relations graduate with an expensive education but no job. He watched a cooking show and thought, I can do that, enjoying the simplicity of a recipe that sounded and looked delicious but was so easy he didn't have to write it down to make it himself. After moving to Los Angeles, he experimented with veganism. He discovered he lost weight and felt great, with more energy and vitality, and he's been a vegan ever since. But, he's still the "regular dude" who wants to eat sandwiches, sliders, onion rings, pizza, and drink beer and cocktails while he watches the game. He became The Sexy Vegan by posting a video cooking demonstration on YouTube. This new cookbook covers the basics of cooking, from slicing vegetables to finding the right type of tofu to recreating favourites without meat or dairy. With more than 100 recipes, Brian covers everything from cocktails (according to the Sexy Vegan, the most important meal of the day) to amazing breakfast sandwiches to desserts such as Sailor Peanut Rum Ice Cream. The Sexy Vegan's signature style is efficient, lively, and funny. He doesn't take himself seriously, but he takes his food seriously, and he delivers great options for enjoying food while staying healthy and protecting the planet.
