“This isn’t your grandma’s collection of recipes. The second cookbook from Hot Knives bloggers Brown and George fearlessly dives into the world of meat-free partying…Daring additions to the tried and true…are sure to shake up any staid kitchen. Innovative substitutions for meat are showcased readers will be won over by the no-holds-barred innovative spirit that permeates these quality recipes from two cool guys who definitely know how to cook.”

Entertainment Realm
“Beautiful cookbook devoted to vegetarian and vegan recipes for cook-outs, potlucks, picnics and “ragers.” The perfect cookbook for the social butterfly, frequent meetup goer or someone with a large family. Two guy with lots of cool ideas. Fun, easy-going tone.” 

Tuscon Citizen, 8/20/13
“This is more than just a collection of recipes. It is nothing less than a celebration of food geared to be shared with family and friends. Brown and George cover all of the bases…Filled with photos of the authors’ friends and family eating food in real time, the emphasis is on fun.”

Portland Book Review, 10/16/13
“An unusual vegetarian/vegan cookbook…written for the young partying type.”

Taste for Life, 12/13/13
“If you know a young (or young-at-heart) adventurous individual with a lust of life and vegetables, this may be the cookbook for them.”

Los Angeles Times, 12/7/13
“[A] super-fun vegetarian cookbook…Will make any meat-free dinner party a blast and any aspiring vegetarian cook happy”

Product Description

Isa Moskowitz’s Vegan With a Vengeance and Sarah Kramer’s How It All Vegan! showed the world that plant-based cookbooks don’t have to be full of sanctimonious text and wilted sprouts recipes. But why should vegans have all the fun? Food-blogging duo Alex Brown and Evan George—better known as Hot Knives—have shown their 60,000 monthly readers that vegetarians are “cheeky [and] over-the-top” too and “don’t much care for established notions of propriety" (LA Weekly). This is the only cookbook you’ll find with chapters called “Bro-tein” and “BBQ Mosh Pit,” or filled with recipes for DIY Wieners and Patties, Sauce-y Explosions, Salsas that Hurt, Deep Sea Mushrooms, and Nachos that Cook Themselves. And don’t forget dessert: try Hand-Cranked Cream Dreams and Booze You Can Eat.

Hot Knives bring you vegetarianism with a new set of rules: “Enjoy your food, but party harder. Eat everything with your hands. Drink booze and fruit, not water. Make all of your junk food yourself. Cook at least half of everything you eat on an open fire. Switch to uppers, if possible.”

5.0 out of 5 stars FUNNY, INSPIRED, RAUNCHY July 3 2013
By Eco Mama's Guide To Living Green - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
I just got this in my hands just now or I would have suggested you pick up a copy for the Fourth. Maybe there's still time to grab a copy locally? LUST FOR LEAF is a fresh, sassy and slightly risque vegetarian cookbook packed with recipes for some inspired eating this summer.

Meals perfect for camping, picnicking, and potlucks but with some serious originality get you in the mood to cook and the spirit of the book captures the essence of bonding over food. I haven't seen a cookbook come my way in a while that made me stop what I was doing and read. Yes, read. The prose is entertaining and it's full of glossy photos. I haven't had a chance to try recipes yet but I will for sure, and most often you know by looking at a recipe whether or not you're going to like it. First on my list (and on the menu for tomorrow) is the Watermelon-Strawberry Aquas Fresca (with cilantro) and I can't wait to try the recipe for squash blossoms. V's let you know instantly whether a recipe is vegan while fabulous recipe titles and cool info-icons with drink and music suggestions add to the fun. Amusing it is, but there's real substance here. It's full of creativity and made me laugh while making me hungry.

The Kindle version is available now, but unless you have a color display, I'd get the hard copy for the abundance of photos on every page. It's not for everyone perhaps, I never been told to stir the sh*t out of something in a cookbook before, but it's raunchiness definitely gives it a unique voice. And I think that just might appeal to some who otherwise might not be interested in a vegetarian cookbook. It would be an awesome host/hostess gift if you're headed out for a Fourth of July party tomorrow (or any summer party for that matter). I'll try to report back after I've tried some recipes, but wanted to green light it for anyone thinking about this--the first impression is great.

1.0 out of 5 stars A Fun Title and Concept but Recipes that Leave Much to Be Desired! Nov. 5 2013
By Geraldine - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
If you're looking for recipes you'll actually make and enjoy again and again, this is not a cookbook to buy.

Lust for Leaf may be a fun book to browse through but as far as the recipes are concerned, IMO, it's just plain bad. As a cookbook author and reviewer myself, I check out and try out, new cookbooks on a regular basis. I am also a long-time vegetarian.

This "cookbook" has had a lot of hype and I can understand the appeal it might have for some people who don't actually cook much. But using the F word among other naughty ones and happy group shots of their friends, does not make up for less than stellar work that went into the actual recipes in this book.

Just the amounts of black pepper that these guys regularly throw into the mix, makes me shudder. I'm not sure if that ref. they made to their bleeding gums was in jest, after looking at the recipes in this book.

Maybe good for a laugh or two but for serious cooks and recipes that are keepers, keep looking.

2.0 out of 5 stars Some misguided recipes Nov. 27 2013
By M Vanessa - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover
Not all the recipes listed as Vegan in this cookbook are actually Vegan. For instance the HK Dogs call for Better Than Bouillon mushroom stock; however, when you check the ingredient label, it clearly indicates that there is milk in the stock. These cookbook authors should be more careful when labeling a recipe as vegan - its very misleading.
