Recapture the love, peace and magic of touring with The Dead.
The Grateful Dead were beloved by millions of fans worldwide. But they also created a sense of community and harmony for those who followed them. The parking lots of Grateful Dead shows became a home away from home for their fans, and delicious vegetarian recipes as well as beautiful crafts were created and shared.

Each dish, like Mississippi Uptown Jumbalaya and Tofu Pot Pie, will remind dead fans everywhere of some of the best times of their lives.
Of course, along with the food are the crafts: beautiful handmade dream catchers, candles and flower wreaths, hair wraps, jewelry and of course, tie-dye! Elizabeth Peace Zipern's easy instructions let you make them too! And along with each recipe and craft, a candid portrait of the Deadhead chef or craftsperson brings back the free and mellow life that so many Grateful Dead fans remember with a warm feelings of love.
