"Food" is full of uncomplicated, tasty meals to tempt both vegetarians and meat-eaters alike. Inspired by growing up as a vegetarian and working on her mother's recipes, and using stories and photographs (past and present) to tell her life through food, Mary has created recipes for friends and family that are imaginative and creative. Fresh, inspirational and irresistible, Mary's first cookbook will enthuse readers to bring more meat-free cooking into their repertoires. From Fruit and Nut Granola to Asparagus Tart, Mexican Bean Tortilla to Coconut Rice Pudding, Mary gives us ideas for every meal, from breakfasts to Sunday roasts, and offers new twists on old classics like pancakes, and Shepherd's Pie. As a working mother, Mary is perfectly placed to write a contemporary vegetarian cookbook - good food, cooked well and with ease, for all the family. And as a photographer she has a unique vision - her pictures are a glorious accompaniment to her mouth-watering food.
