Think! Eat! Act! A Sea Shepherd Chef's Vegan Recipes
Please join us on Saturday, August 9th as we celebrate the publishing of Think! Eat! Act! A Sea Shepherd Chef's Vegan Recipes by Raffaella Tolicetti. Raffa is a veteran Sea Shepherd Conservation Society crewmember. She has served as chief cook on board the MV Steve Irwin, MY Bob Barker and more recently on the mighty MV Sam Simon.
Think! Eat! Act! is much more than a cookbook. It is also the story of Raffa’s journey from home cook to activist and a guide with facts and resources that she hopes will inspire people to adopt and maintain a vegan diet. In her words:
"There are many ways of refusing oppression and cooking is one, because choosing your food is definitely a 'political' act. Choosing not to eat animals, not to be part of a system that exploits them, growing your own food, or eating organic and local food are many small decisions that make a lot of difference for those who are killed as a consequence for our behavior."
We will sample some of Raffa's delicious recipes and she will share with us what inspired her to write Think! Eat! Act! We will also be sharing photos from Sea Shepherd's Antarctic Whale Defense Campaigns. Books will be available for purchase. This event is a fundraiser for political prisoners Eric McDavid and Marius Mason. All proceeds will be donated to their support funds.
