Passionate vegan musician Moby is getting set to release his first vegan cookbook this Autumn to raise money for rescue animals.
Named after Moby’s famous LA vegan restaurant, Little Pine, The Little Pine Cookbook features 125 vegan recipes inspired by the restaurant’s best-loved dishes.
Moby opened the vegan restaurant Little Pine in 2015 in Silver Lake, California, before selling it in 2020. In keeping with its vegan credentials, Little Pine donates all the profits to help fund animal rights organisations.
The Little Pine Cookbook aims to “wow even the hardest-to-please meat lovers” with its tempting plant-based recipes.
Inside, the pages are bursting with mouth-watering dishes such as Panko-Crusted Piccata and Fried Cauliflower with Kimchi Aioli.
Carb-lovers can indulge with tasty pasta recipes like the Orecchiette with Braised Leeks, Asparagus & English Peas. This freshly flavoured dish promises to be one of your new ‘go-to’ recipes.
Those with a sweet tooth are spoilt for choice with tempting desserts such as Butterscotch Pudding. If you’re a chocolate lover, there’s also a rich and decadent Chocolate Bread Pudding to tickle your tastebuds.

Taking to Instagram to announce the news, Moby wrote: “I’m very happy to announce that on September 7 I’ll be releasing the little pine cookbook!
Moby also revealed that all of the profits from the vegan cookbook will be donated to animal rights organisations.
He explained: “And of course it is my plan to give away any and all profits that I make from the sale of the book.
“Working to create a world wherein animals are allowed to live their own lives, free from human interference, is my life’s work, and I could never look at veganism as a way to personally profit. Thanks!”
Moby & veganism
The electronic artist is well known for his staunch advocacy of animal rights and has been a vegan for over 30 years.
Explaining in an interview with Rolling Stone why he is a vegan, the long-time animal lover said it was simple.
“I loved (and love) animals and I don’t want to be involved in anything that leads to or contributes to their suffering. At first this led me to give up beef and chicken.
“Then I thought, “I don’t want to contribute to animal suffering. But the cows and chickens in commercial dairy and egg farms are pretty miserable, so why am I still eating milk and eggs?” So in 1987 I gave up all animal products and became a vegan.”
These days, Moby quite literally wears his heart on his sleeve with his striking vegan tattoos.
Proving veganism is for life, Moby has a bold new tattoo on his neck stating ‘Vegan For Life’, as well as the words ‘Animal Rights’ on both arms.
Moby’s vegan cookbook will go on sale on September 7th and is available to pre-order now.
Moby is just one of many vegan celebrities who are passionate about animal rights.
