About John Schlimm
Named one of the “Vegan Men We Love” by VegNews magazine, John Schlimm is an activist, educator, artist, and the international award-winning author of such books as The Cheesy Vegan, Stand Up!: 75 Young Activists Who Rock the World, And How You Can, Too!, Grilling Vegan Style, The Tipsy Vegan, and The Ultimate Beer Lover’s Bar Snacks & Beer Cocktails (coming Summer 2014). A member of one of the oldest brewing families in the U.S. and the son of a former butcher and meat-processing business owner, John came out on The Ellen DeGeneres Show as a pro-meatless, pro-vegetable loving kind of foodie, expressing the sentiment that “no living being, human or animal, should ever go through this life unloved” to his millions of neighbors across the globe.
John’s cookbooks and appearances have been critically acclaimed and heralded by the vegan and mainstream media and readers alike, including The New York Times, NPR’s The Splendid Table, Martha Stewart’s Everyday Food, U.S. News & World Report, QVC, his appearance on Ellen, and two cross country book tours with Caesars Entertainment, as well as his groundbreaking Commencement Address to the Class of 2012. John has a Master's in Education from Harvard University, and has authored 14 books; the most recent three cookbooks, written since his transition to vegan, carry this dedication: To All the Animals ~ So you know that you have not passed this way unloved.
