Taraleigh Weathers and Pete Mason will be at the Phish benefit in Essex on 9/14 with copies of PhanFood. For only $20, pick up the first cookbook by Phish fans, for Phish fans. More than 1/3 of the cover price will benefit the Chittenden foodbank, and in this time of need as families and businesses clean up after Hurricane Irene, the food is needed more than ever. Look for the Orange Syracuse flag on lot at the show and help feed Vermont!
This past weekend we had a kickoff party for PhanFood at Nectar’s in Vermont. We have a limited amount of copies of PhanFood available for $20 with FREE shipping.
All orders placed by 12/20 will be shipped and should arrive in time for Christmas. We will have a few copies left (hopefully) for Worcester. After that, copies will be available only at SUNY Press, which is currently offering Free Shipping in December!
(note – purchase if PhanFood does not count towards the ‘Win Things‘ Contest)

Like the band they follow from city to city, Phish fans have their own history of creativity, which in turn follows them wherever they go—even into the kitchen. Edited by Taraleigh Weathers and Pete Mason, PhanFood brings together many of the recipes that Phish fans have made and shared over the years. Included are appetizers, salads, soups, sandwiches, entrées, desserts, drinks (with and without alcohol), and a variety of other concoctions that Phish fans enjoy while they are in the lots, at the site, or just sitting at home waiting for the next tour to be announced. PhanFood is also a wholly nonprofit endeavor, with all net profits being donated to regional food banks and charities in the cities where Phish plays.
Praise for the book:
“A phantastic collection of goodies—baked, fried, and otherwise—ranging from the simple (yeasted popcorn) to the complex (including a few that will test your culinary mettle); organized with delightful connections to Phish songs, shows, and history; and benefiting the hungry, on many levels—a full-course of phun!” — Ellis Godard, Executive Director of the Mockingbird Foundation
