Mission Vegan: Wildly Delicious Food for Everyone (Signed copy)

Danny Bowien, JJ Goode


Harper Collins, 2022. Hardcover, 272pp., 7.50 x 9.20 inches


From the author of The Mission Chinese Food Cookbook, a fresh take on vegan cooking that emphasizes freewheeling exploration and big flavor.

As cofounder and chef of the famous Mission Chinese Food restaurants in San Francisco and New York, Danny Bowien has a reputation for inventive dishes. In this book, pasta pomodoro shares a chapter with chewy Korean buckwheat noodles topped with neon-pink dragonfruit ice; fried rice is inspired by veggie sushi hand rolls and Thai takeout; and kimchi is made kaleidoscopically with habanero, pineapple, and seasoning packets from instant ramen.

While the dishes have appeared, or could appear, on Mission’s menu, the recipes are geared for the home cook, delivering restaurant-quality impact without restaurant-level effort. Mission Vegan represents a journey-in-progress, a chef’s mission to find inspiration, joy, and flavor in food, no matter where life takes you.
