Gentle World’s original publication is the Cookbook for People who Love Animals, a classic of the movement that is much-loved as one of the very first vegan cookbooks in the US. It has sold over 100,000 copies in the nearly 40 years since its publication.
The discounted case price provides an opportunity for our readers to help use these books to complement their existing vegan outreach endeavors, either by using them as gifts, selling them for fundraising purposes, or even donating to people and organizations who could really benefit from them, such as libraries, schools or even cafés and restaurants.
Compiled in 1981, long before most of the world knew what the word ‘vegan’ even meant, let alone the fact that vegan food can be even more delicious than standard fare, The Cookbook for People Who Love Animals is a piece of vegan history.
We are offering cases of 40 books at a price of $120 (plus a $5 credit card fee)
which comes out to just over $3.00 per book (RRP is $11.95).
This includes the cost of US shipping and handling.
“I have had this since it first came out and it is STILL the best vegan cookbook according to my family… My mother ‘loved’ animals always but thought I would die when I became a vegan 43 years ago, as did my doctor. When I got to cook with Gentle World for an event and bought her this cookbook, she became vegan.”
“This is one of the best vegan cookbooks. This is a great cookbook for anyone looking for down-to-earth useful recipes. The recipes are easy and practical.”
“This has to be the most beautiful cookbook I have ever seen! It is full of really cool drawings of cows, sheep, dogs, and flowers. I also really enjoyed the quotes. The cookbook is completely vegan and full of easy to make recipes.”
“I highly recommend this book to other vegans and also to non-vegans who are interested in knowing why we do not eat or use animals or any products derived from them. And for those who would like that infamous question answered, “Then what do you eat?” Reading this book provided a very spiritual experience for me, with the quotes, poems and essays included throughout the book touching my heart and soul deeply.”
“The Cookbook for People Who Love Animals was the very first cookbook I purchased when I became vegetarian in 1989, and it started me on a journey of healthful, compassionate eating and living. Thank you!”
“My copy of the cookbook is worn and tattered and taped together. Before my daughter-in-law married my son, this is the book I lent to her. Now my granddaughter and grandson use it.”
“To inspect the pages of my cookbook, you will find well-worn, recipe-stained, note-taking pages filled with years of my vegetarian cooking education. I have purchased other vegetarian cookbooks since then, but yours is the cookbook that I will never get rid of. So thank you, such a great book and wonderfully yummy recipes!”
“Over the years, I have bought many – yes, hundreds – of copies of The Cookbook for People who Love Animals for distribution to local groups.”
“Love Incredibly Delicious, but still Gentle World’s classic Cookbook for People Who Love Animals is at the top of my favorites list :)”
“I have enjoyed my 1983 edition of The Cookbook… for all these years. It is unique and refreshing; a gift to all who read it.”
