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.
Want to own a piece of history? We’re giving away a copy to one lucky reader. Just leave a comment telling us why you want The Compassionate Cook, and a winner will be chosen at random. If you don’t win, you can still grab the book at PETA’s online store.
Good luck, and happy (cruelty-free) eating!
