Anna Jones is a brilliant young food stylist and recipe developer who trained with Jamie Oliver. Her first cookbook is an exciting collection of contemporary vegetarian recipes that are healthy, nourishing and delicious. Based on how Anna likes to eat day to day, it covers everything from a blueberry and amaranth porridge to start the day, to a quick autumn root panzanella or avocado, butterbean and miso salad, to a tomato and coconut cassoulet, a pistachio and squash galette, or mint, ricotta and courgette polpette for dinner.
The book will also include illustrated recipe spreads, for even more ideas: a guide to quick, tasty pestos, the best ever sandwiches, or food for when you’re under the weather.
