Win PETA’s Original Cookbook

Published by PETA.

It has been a week of milestones at PETA. Sunday we told you about the 30th anniversary of the Silver Spring monkeys case, PETA’s first investigation, which thrust animal rights into mainstream consciousness. Today, PETA’s first cookbook, The Compassionate Cook: Or, “Please Don’t Eat the Animals!” is being re-released to celebrate its 18th anniversary.

Authored by PETA President Ingrid Newkirk, the book has received rave reviews over the years for its 225 easy recipes made from simple, everyday ingredients for people who want to save animals’ lives every time they sit down to eat.
