MEAT-FREE ANY DAY is the new book from food writer Sarah Beattie. As some of you may know, Sarah is my wife, so yes, this is a plug - but it truly is a fine book, so allow me to tell you a bit about it...
It contains over 150 recipes, and dozens of colour photographs, all genuinely of the food itself. No glue or plastic, no food-stylist tricks. It's an authentic cookbook for every day, for everyone.
Instead of the usual Starters / Main Courses/ Desserts, the book is, brilliantly, divided into ideal recipes for Sunny Days, for Busy Days, for Sundays, for Hanging on 'til Paydays, for High Days & Holidays, etc., etc.
MEAT-FREE ANY DAY is based on Sarah’s monthly feature in Vegetarian Living magazine, but there’s nothing Worthy or Hair-shirt or Preachy about it. This is modern, imaginative, richly satisfying food, not only for people who never eat meat but for those of us who just like to reduce our meat consumption now & then yet still want quality cuisine when we do.
I've eaten this food - I know how good it is.
MEAT-FREE ANY DAY is published in large-format paperback in the UK on Friday October 24th, at £14.99. You can advance-order it here now: http://tinyurl.com/mpvnmm9 or through your local bookshop. (The ISBN is 978-1908256508.)
