PA Center for the Book Names “The Cheesy Vegan” as 2019 Route One Reads Selection

UNIVERSITY PARK, Pa. — For the fifth consecutive year, the Pennsylvania Center for the Book will participate in Route One Reads, a road trip-inspired reading list that explores various genres through the network of state Center for the Book affiliates located along U.S. Route 1.

This year, the theme of the reading will be cookbooks and other food-related books. Whether readers are at home or on the road this summer, this list of must-read cookbooks will keep everyone turning pages until Labor Day.

The selected book to represent Pennsylvania is “The Cheesy Vegan” by John Schlimm. Schlimm satisfies vegans’ cheese cravings with do-it-yourself vegan cheese recipes and more than 100 vegan cheese-inspired recipes for breakfast and brunch, soups and suppers, and every course in between. Schlimm, who has family ties to Pennsylvania’s historic Straub Brewery, devotes a bonus chapter to vegan cheese pairings for wine, beer and cocktails.
