My debut cookbook Vegan Comfort Cooking: 75 Plant-Based Recipes to Satisfy Cravings and Warm Your Soul is available to buy in all good book stores across the U.S.A and Canada now and will be rolling out worldwide over the next few weeks!
Where can I buy it?
Pick it up from your favourite book store or order via any of the links on this page, and everywhere else books are sold. (Please note that some of the links here are affiliate links).
What is Vegan Comfort Cooking all about?
A little about the book? Well, it’s full of what I do best. COMFORT FOOD (vegan obvi). Which, in my opinion, is the best type of food and what I always want to eat. We’re talking amazingly tasty, stick to your ribs comfort cooking that will leave you and your family feeling totally satisfied. You will find breakfast recipes, dinner recipes, snacks and of course, plenty of desserts.
And there is a color photo for every single recipe.
I don’t know about you, but when I buy cookbooks I want pictures. I want to see what the recipes should look like before I make them. I think that’s really important. Plus, the photography is an important part of the creative process for me.
Every recipe in the book has been extensively tested by me and my team of amazing recipe testers so that I know, with confidence, that they will work well in everyone’s kitchen and not just my own.
Here are a couple of my favourite recipes from the book to give you an idea of what you are getting into if you buy it:
JAM-TASTIC VICTORIA SPONGE CAKE
It’s an English classic and it’s messy, sticky and really delicious!
SOUL WARMING STEW AND DUMPLINGS
Who loves dumplings? Because the dumplings floating on this stew are the lightest, fluffiest most delicious dumplings ever. Way better than ones made with suet like in our pre-vegan days. The stew is pretty awesome too. I cannot wait for you to be able to try it!
SHOW STOPPING BAKED SPINACH AND ARTICHOKE DIP
This is a life-changer of a dip! I have made it so many times since I created it and we always have a hard time not eating the entire thing in one sitting. I actually shared this Vegan Spinach Artichoke Dip recipe here on my blog so you can take a sneak peak before you purchase my book!
