I got my first vegan cookzine back in 1956, when I was just about to become a sweet dew-haired Bat Mitzvah. I have a bunch of 'em now, and I have a lot of super-not vegan vintage promotional recipe books too. I think the latter're sorta the great-great-great-grand pappies of the modern cookzine, but with a heavy promotional/commercial angle and lots of gelatin and dead things.
For kicks and posterity and because I need to exercise the effin' flab from this blog (Vegan Mofo's coming next month!), I'm gonna document 'em here, well some of 'em at least. Consider this a sorta temporary cookzine temple of half review half library catalog for the next little while. Much obliged.

I don't cook from the cookzines much, I'm way more likely to pull one down to admire, or remember or just to browse through for a looksie. GasTank I reach for frequently, so many good ideas and lots of veganized European Grandma Recipes--triple score. Also, Jessica is the genius behind rice crispie double layer cakes, c'mon.
