Cookin' Up A StormRegular price $25.00
Written by Laura Dakin, chief cook on Sea Shepherd's flagship the Steve Irwin, you'll share Laura's adventures in feeding a hungry crew of 50 morning to night. 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.

Sea Shepherd is an international non-profit organization, and our work is only possible because of generous donations and through the sale of our official merchandise.
Our eStore gives us the opportunity to raise vital funds for our marine conservation campaigns across the Americas. Every purchase you make helps us maintain our fleet of ships, equip our crew, and continue the fight for the ocean. Thank you for helping us protect marine wildlife worldwide!
What are your products made from?
We are committed to sustainability, with most of our products having a GOTS or Fairtrade certifications. For our clothing, we source 100% organic cotton for natural-fiber, plastic-free apparel. This also helps keep plastic out of the ocean as every laundry load of synthetic clothing releases millions of plastic microfibers into the ocean.
For our other items, we source recycled materials and screen all of our suppliers for a responsible supply chain, sustainable product, sustainable operations, and community involvement.
Sea Shepherd has high standards in terms of our Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) and eco-friendly sourcing.
Can you change your shipping costs?
Our goal is to reduce our global footprint, and so we encourage everyone to choose the Sea Shepherd merchandise store closest to you if possible. That’s why our shipping costs outside of the US are higher.
We carefully source our shipping providers to ensure their sustainability and we maintain regular checks to try and reduce costs where possible.
