Featured are 80 of the crew's favorite vegan recipes-deliciously eclectic and modified for the family kitchen. Throughout are beautiful recipe photos along with action shots of the crew at work. Interspersed are crew members' stories that illustrate the danger these ocean warriors face stalking whaling vessels on the high seas.
The galleys of Sea Shepherd's fleet maintain a plant-based diet. Learn how a vegan diet can play a significant role in saving the biodiversity of our oceans.Laura joined the Sea Shepherd Conservation Society in 2005 at the age of 21. She began her career in the kitchen as a dishwasher, but after just a month, Laura was thrown into the deep end and promoted to chief cook (affectionately called galley slave) out of necessity. She fell in love with vegan cooking and rose to the challenge of preparing three meals a day for 50 crew members. When she's not sailing the high seas, Laura lives in Australia and is the head chef at a non-for-profit, pay-as-you-feel vegan restaurant in Newtown, New South Wales.
