Veganizing Anthony Bourdain

Hezbollah Tofu is a blog trying to organize vegans to “veganize” Anthony Bourdain’s recipes. They’ll publish them as a zine once they have collected enough. Bourdain is quoted from Kitchen Confidential:

Vegetarians, and their Hezbollah-like splinter faction, the vegans, are a persistent irritant to any chef worth a damn. To me, life without veal stock, pork fat, sausage, organ meat, demi-glace, or even stinky cheese is a life not worth living. Vegetarians are the enemy of everything good and decent in the human spirit, and an affront to all I stand for, the pure enjoyment of food.

What offensive, contrarian drivel. I’ve enjoyed reading Kitchen Confidential in the past for its ‘revelatory’ nature (then again, not sure why I didn’t know those things were going on in kitchens anyway). The Hezbollahs write:

We’re going to enjoy vastly improved, veganized versions of your masturbatory, blood-oozing recipes. And then we’re going to compile them, sell them in zine form, and donate the proceeds to vegan outreach organizations and farm sanctuaries–in your name. Anthony, I have to say, I’m really looking forward to the great work we’re going to do together for veganism.

The web. Such an awesome place. I’ll buy copies of the zine and give them to all my friends.
