Riot Cupcake


The secret to the feminist revolution is in a vegan cupcake.

Brooklyn born, Isa Moskowitz, is the founder and co-host of the Post Punk Kitchen, a public access cooking show that features recipes like sushi, coconut cream pie, and matzoh ball soup, all sans meat, dairy, eggs, honey, and other animal products.”

Despite its niche focus, PPK became a hit, and Moskowitz has enjoyed the attention of animal-welfare magazines like Satya, as well as slightly more, ahem, mainstream publications (e.g. The Washington Post and The New York Times). Building on PPK’s success, Moskowitz and her co-host Terry Hope Romero launched a website with a recipe archive and an almost unbelievably active forum that connects ostracized pink-haired teenagers and vegan feminists from around the globe. The website claims: “All we believe in is punk rock and tofu.” Cute, but I have to wonder what Ms. Moskowitz thinks of all the food miles her heavily-processed tofu products have traveled….

    Isa Chandra Moskowitz is awesome. Those vegan cupcakes are stupendous and really are taking over the world. I think I appreciate cupcakes more as a vegan (thanks to her recipes) than I ever did beforehand. :)

    The miles food travel has significantly less impact on the environment than how the food is produced. Production accounts for most of the environmental toll. Not to say one shouldn’t consider the distance their food travels, but since production is the big hitter you get more environmental bang for your buck, by choosing products that require less resources in production…like choosing tofu over flesh. Plus with Isa’s help you’re taste buds will never know what hit them! She is a cooking goddess!
