In December of 2013, Justin P. Moore, Berlin artist and author of the award-winning cookbook The Lotus and the Artichoke – Vegan Recipes from World Adventures traded the German winter for 3 months of sun, surf, yoga and cooking in a small coastal village on the west coast of Mexico.
His objective: Explore new culinary frontiers, immerse in another culture, swap stories and cooking secrets with locals, and document everything in a new book with his trademark style of plant-based international fusion recipes, witty and personal travel tales, expressive art and photography.
Cross the border and explore a new world of culinary traditions and exotic flavors. Discover spice-infused classics like tacos, tostadas, and tamales. Journey to a land of spectacular soups and salsas. Run wild with raw creations and super-charged salads, seductive sweets and power-packed juices and smoothies.
