Dear Friends,

My debut cookbook is finally done! It will officially hit the shelves this fall, October 23rd, and is currently available for pre-order where all books are sold. 

During the past year and half, I have dedicated all of my energy, creativity, and passion into this project and I could not be more proud of the final book! Below you will find more details about the contents.

Big love, 


"Inspired by plants and mushrooms and the complex flavors and rich history of southern style cooking, Timothy’s culinary world is a magical one. Here he shares his secrets for achieving delicious and deeply satisfying vegan meals—I’m thrilled to finally be able to make his famous gumbo in my own kitchen!"

-Amy Chaplin, chef and James Beard award-winning author of 'At Home in the Whole Food Kitchen - Celebrating the Art of Eating Well'

“Tim’s the real deal – he forages, cooks and shoots his own beautiful photos. You’re going to love this book." 

-Jamie Oliver, international celebrity chef, restaurateur, and cookbook author

"I love how Timothy uses fresh, vibrant ingredients to create colorful dishes with a Southern twist. With its beautiful photography, accessible recipes, helpful guides, and lovely stories, Mississippi Vegan will most definitely become a staple in my kitchen."

"Every component of this book is richly layered with vivid storytelling, a genuine loyalty to tradition, an angle of accessibility that doesn’t dumb down when it comes to important regional ingredients, and the passion for a new world of flavor in vegan cuisine.  Timothy opens up his culinary point of view in a stunningly beautiful way that aims straight for the heart. His joyful sincerity is encouraging and real."

-Laura Wright, author of The First Mess Cookbook
