This Ain't No Picnic is the first cookbook featuring creative and delicious recipes that match the quality and presentation of a five star restaurant with the self-parody and humor of punk rock culture and history. While exploring and improving the favorite foods of historic punk rockers through exclusive interviews, Picnic treats you to the delectibles they could—and perhaps should—have been eating. How to make s'mores with a zippo, cook without a stove or oven, and 80 new recipes of Joshua Ploeg's magical food and flavor combinations like you've never dreamed of.
Joshua takes a look at punk tropes and cliches and isn't afraid to poke fun at his brethren—from crusties to Blondie to the early L.A. scene to The Ramones and so much more. There's about one hundred full color photos of the action taken by Dalton Blanco and Vice Cooler to boot!
Risks and challenges
This will be our longest full color book to date at 192 pages. The vast majority of full color books are printed in China and shipped on boats, to the detriment of American jobs. But we will be printing these at a worker-owned print shop in Illinois, because it's what our conscience allows.
Combined, all of this costs about $3,000 more than our typical release.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
