So Raw It’s Downright Filthy by Joshua Ploeg

(Microcosm) I dug Ploeg’s last cookbook, but I’m not 100% on this one – putting a toilet and the word filthy on your cookbook cover doesn’t bother me, but I’m slightly put off by the passive introduction to this raw food cookbook (“I’m not on a raw diet, nor do I recommend it. Actually I think it’s a terrible idea”).  The recipes are written in simple, conversational language, and seem fun and look OK, though they use a fair amount of unusual, not cheap ingredients so it’s not like this is a playful cookbook for wee kids too young to use fire. I guess what this is is a cookbook for squatters with the gas cut off, who can shoplift from a fancy grocery store.
