Join us for a fun delicious event when Tim Pakron shares stories from, gives tastes, and signs MISSISSIPPI VEGAN: Recipes and Stories from a Southern Boy's Heart -- all about Gulf Coast Southern cuisine, with lots of Cajun, Creole, and New Orleanian inspired dishes.

Tim’s the real deal—he forages, cooks, and shoots his own beautiful photos. You’re going to love this book.”
—Jamie Oliver

Celebrate the gorgeous and delicious possibilities of plant-based Southern cuisine.

Inspired by the landscape and flavors of his childhood on the Mississippi Gulf Coast, Timothy Pakron found his heart, soul, and calling in cooking the Cajun, Creole, and southern classics of his youth. In his debut cookbook, he shares 125 plant-based recipes, all of which substitute ingredients without sacrificing depth of flavor and reveal the secret tradition of veganism in southern cooking.

Finding ways to re-create his experiences growing up in the South–making mud pies and admiring the deep pink azaleas–on the plate, Pakron looks to history and nature as his guides to creating the richest food possible. Filled with as many evocative photographs and stories as easy-to-follow recipes, Mississippi Vegan is an ode to the transporting and ethereal beauty of the food and places you love.

Timothy Pakron is a passionate cook, artist, and photographer, and the creator of the blog Mississippi Vegan. Before devoting himself to the culinary arts, he spent time as a fine artist in Charleston, South Carolina, and New York City. He currently lives and works in New Orleans.
