It's Finally Here--the Dharma DaDa Erni Bär [Vegetarian] Mail Art Cookbook Series

A couple of months ago, Dharma DaDa sent me an amazing package of foodstuffs with a special "task." The instructions were: "Prepare a meal using the [food enclosed] and do a little documentation for IUOMA to show those guys what real EAT ART is... Good Luck!"
