Fighting for animal liberation and an end to speciesism

Dino Sarma Live ARZone Guest Chat 

ARZone is pleased to announce this week’s Live Chat Guest.


Dino Sarma is a vegan advocate and educator, who is the author of Alternative Vegan: International Vegan Fare Straight From the Produce Aisle, which is a vegan cookbook based solely on produce. Dino focuses on cooking simply, inexpensively and with an East Indian influence. You don't have to buy expensive, fancy, hard-to-find ingredients to be vegan; the most interesting and tasty vegan food is just produce!


Dino was born in New Delhi, India, and immigrated to the USA with his family in 1986. From childhood, cooking has been a passion for him. He draws his influences from his mother and the many hours of food shows on television that he watched.


Dino produces popular podcasts, through his Alternative Vegan website []  in which he takes his listeners through he world of the vegan kitchen, cooking without the use of what he deems “omnivore substitutes” (tofu, tempeh, seitan, soy milk and any and all fake meats.) 


He also maintains his blog at, which is a cooking blog, but also a space that he uses to write about what's going on in his life.


Dino currently lives in Manhattan with his husband. He has worked at the Sacred Chow, in Greenwich Village, where he has done everything from cooking to helping to manage.


Dino welcomes the opportunity to engage ARZone members this weekend on a range of topics, including his popular cookbook, podcasts and blog, as well as his vegan advocacy and education and his philosophies in general.
