I’ve just had self-published Vegan Ninja – a cookbook of confronting ecological proportions and personal meaning, through Echo Press, Griffith, ACT. The first half is the reasoning behind being vegan and the second has almost 90 recipes. A percentage of every copy sold will go directly to a friend of mine Yudav Gurung, of the Himalayan Light Foundation, in Kathmandu. He has been doing earthquake relief work since the day after a devastating earthquake killed more than 8000 Nepalese in April this year. My wife, Julie, daughter, Eve, and I met Yudav four years ago when he, and his organisation, helped us install a solar lighting system in a remote Nepalese medical centre. We live in the Hunter Valley (one of Australia’s biggest black coal districts) and I’m a long-time member of the Queensland Vegan Society. Thank you.
