Hey, I’m Justin P. Moore! I was born and raised in the United States and the Marshall Islands. I work as an artist, designer, translator, and teacher and have been based in Berlin, Germany since 2001.
I’ll be posting recipes, stories, photography and artwork about my years in kitchens around the world. Some are recipes converted from traditional cuisines, some are experiments, many are trusty standbys which I’ve worked with since going vegetarian in 1990.
My travels have brought me to over 40 countries, through many kitchens, hundreds of meals from street carts, generous families, fancy and not-so-fancy restaurants. I pick up and work with new foods, techniques and flavors wherever I go.
In October 2012, I ran a successful Kickstarter campaign to fund my vegan cookbook project. The first edition of The Lotus and the Artichoke cookbook was printed in December 2012. (Here’s where to order the cookbook in English).
In June 2013, the German edition of The Lotus and the Artichoke was published.
Currently, I’m busy promoting both the English and German editions of my cookbook – including a book tour and cooking demos, helping others with awesome crowdfunding projects (mostly food & art related), planning life and travel adventures for 2013, and of course: cooking up even more great recipes in the kitchen.
