Hooray! Here’s the new book I was just embarking on writing – but Piers Warren and his daughter Ella Bee Glendining got there first. And I’m delighted – plus there’s probably always room for more.

This one’s had entirely positive reviews. Here’s some blurb for you:

The Vegan Cook & Gardener: Growing, Storing and Cooking Delicious Healthy Food all Year Round

Piers Warren and Ella Bee Glendining

Do you want to eat more healthily? Lower your carbon footprint? Banish animal exploitation and suffering? Then this book is for you!

Vegan father and daughter team Piers Warren and Ella Bee Glendining show
you what fruit and vegetables you can grow at home, how to turn them into satisfying and delicious recipes and how to store any excess to keep you going all year round. The combination of growing your own organic food and a vegan lifestyle makes the perfect path for those wishing to live more lightly on the earth.

Join the fight against food miles, agrochemicals and climate change, and discover the pleasure and huge sense of satisfaction that comes from cooking something you have produced yourself. Learn about vegan gardening, self-sufficiency, year round growing techniques and seasonal recipes, plus lots of vegan resources!

The title of this lovely book really says it all: but what it cannot convey is the sheer joy of learning so much about the beautiful vegan cuisine available to us, and how easy it is to make sensational dishes which will delight everyone eager to eat well and healthily. At once scholarly and entertaining, it is gloriously illustrated and the recipes are easy-peasy to follow. It’s for everyone who wants the world to be a better place for animals, for plants and for us. Delicious in every way.

If you have a small plot, this is for you, if you have a balcony, this is for you, if you have a window box, this is for you, and if all you have is hope, this is for you. This book works at all levels, and it has compassion and love on every page. Piers and Ella have created a very special book that is informative, and demystifies the art of being vegan and growing vegan. Their knowledge is vast, and the journey they take the reader on, from the soil to the plate, and to the kitchen, through the year, is original and insightful. That said, there is something else I get from these pages, and that is an overwhelming feeling that they both really care. After reading this brilliant book something strange came over me, I just wanted to eat it. It’s that good.
