Joni Marie Newman loves to cook, especially for friends and family.
Self-taught and still learning, she spends most of her time in the kitchen…often playing mad scientist, mixing together just the right amount of this and that trying to create the perfect vegan bacon.
She is the founder of JustTheFood.com and the author and coauthor of 10 vegan cookbooks, including Vegans Go Nuts, The Complete Guide to Vegan Food Substitutions, Going Vegan, Fusion Food in the Vegan Kitchen. Her food is her activism. Through her food, she hopes to help people to understand that it is not necessary to murder or torture another living creature in order to have a tasty supper.
