Glynn Christian’s new REAL VEGETABLE FLAVOURS is a celebration of plant based-eating for vegans, vegetarians and meat eaters.
Collected during decades of travelling, television, journalism and the pleasures of sharing food with friends, the book is packed with essential gosh-factors and foundation recipes for plant foods. Many are inspired by chefs and food writers such as Elizabeth David and Jane Grigson, Marika Hanbury Tenison, Mary Berry, Rick Stein, Prue Leith, Gary Rhodes, Brian Turner and Robert Carrier.
Creative and classic recipes with variations complement concise advice about using and eating each food and how to be a healthy vegan or vegetarian – especially for teenagers, the essential facts most vegan and vegetarian books ignore or don’t know. Glynn also champions the microwave, scientifically proven to give far higher nutritional value than any other method of vegetable cookery.
REAL VEGETABLE FLAVOURS is written in Glynn’s engaging and often iconoclastic style that saw REAL FLAVOURS – the handbook of gourmet and deli ingredients voted World’s Best Food Book; Nigel Slater called it ‘one of the only ten books you need’ and Tom Parker Bowles said it was ‘as important as a sharp knife in the kitchen’. There’s quirky, too. Like Frozen Pea Sandwiches. Just the sort of originality that made Glynn such a star when he pioneered modern TV cooking on BBC Breakfast Time and with TV series filmed in the Eastern Mediterranean, New Zealand, California, Sri Lanka, China, Australia and Thailand. He is also created Glynn Christian’s Entertaining Microwave, the only BBC-TV series on microwave cookery and wrote weekly for the Sunday Telegraph. Authoritative, humorous, often challenging, Glynn Christian’s REAL VEGETABLE FLAVOURS will take its place beside the sharp knives in every kitchen. And help make plant-based foods more delicious, more often, in more kitchens.
