Product Description

Review

‘A simply brilliant book – modern, clever, beautiful and full of delicious recipes. Go Anna!’ Jamie Oliver

‘A Modern Way to Eat is a gorgeous revelation of a book. Vegetarian food that feels exciting and vibrant, by an author who writes and cooks with authenticity and passion. I will be buying it for everyone.’ Sophie Dahl

‘Anna Jones has discovered exactly how, with imagination and good taste, to create exciting and delicious vegetarian recipes that fit the modern requirement of nourishment – not forgetting the economical side either. Well done Anna.’ Antonio Carluccio

‘I can give you my word, these recipes not only work, they are also mind-blowingly delicious. So if you need more from your food, meals that are good for you, and the planet, tasty, beautiful, and unapologetically-meat-free, Anna’s recipes are an affirming win-win-win! Count me in.’ Tom Herbert, Fabulous Baker Brother

‘This is an excellent vegetarian book. Yep I said it. It’s bloody brilliant.’ Gizzi Erskine

‘Anna is a treasure. She's the rare cook able to expertly explore the rich realm of possibilities at the intersection of health/wellness and deliciousness. Her food is inspired and fresh, satisfying and beautiful – vibrant food for a vibrant life.’ Heidi Swanson

‘Simple, seasonal, veg-led fare that is as delicious as it is virtuous … Clear and concise … Pretty as a picture, and mouthwatering to boot … fantastically useful … Even if you’re a die-hard carnivore, read what Jones has to say – her subtle, beautiful, delectable dishes might just bring you round.’ Guardian

‘It is a book of vegetarian recipes, but carnivores, do not be put off. Let’s say it is a book of deliciously invigorating dishes that happen not to contain any flesh.’ Rose Prince, Spectator, Books of the Year

‘My favourite vegetarian cookbook this year’ Bee Wilson, Stella magazine

‘The new Nigella’ William Sitwell, T2, The Times

About the Author

Anna Jones is a cook, food writer and stylist. One grey, late-for-the-office day, she decided to quit her day job after reading an article about following your passion. Within weeks, she was signed up on Jamie Oliver’s Fifteen apprentice programme. She went on to be part of Jamie’s food team – styling, writing and working behind the scenes on books, TV shows and food campaigns. Now freelance, she has worked with some of the country’s biggest food brands, including innocent drinks for whom she wrote the recipes for Hungry?: the innocent recipe book for filling your family with good stuff. She has also worked with other well-known chefs, such as Henry and Tom Herbert (The Fabulous Baker Brothers), Stevie Parle and Antonio Carluccio, and cooked for royalty, politicians and LA school children alike. A Modern Way to Eat is her first solo book. She lives, writes and cooks in Hackney, East London.

I generally dislike cookery books and the celebrity chefs that churn them out like they were going out of fashion (which most do within about a week of publication) but this book was different. Uncomplicated, diverse, modern and non-preachy this book actually contains recipes I want to make. I just recently made the Dhal which was fantastic and tasted very authentic and it proves to unimaginative meat eaters and restaurant owners alike that veggie food can go beyond stuffed peppers, goats cheese tarts and butternut squash risotto. I found the breakfast section wasn't really to my taste (pun sort-of intended) but this is coming from someone who's very content with toast and a cuppa. However for those who find breakfast a chore and constantly need new ideas (like my other half) I'm sure it'd be very useful.
Overall a great cookery book not only for veggies but for meat-eaters like me who believe there's more to life than meat, meat, meat.

This book is a revelation. So simple, so tasty, so wide ranging. And you can feel the mission that Anna Jones is on to spread the word about something that's deeply important to her, something that she has to share with the world from her heart. You can feel it in the pictures, the recipes and the writing. Thank you Anna Jones.

As a lifelong vegetarian I agree with the sentiment and goals of this book. The recipes and flavours are unique and refreshing. I think the comment about some of the ingredients is fair, they are hard to come by. I guess vegetarians have made that commitment to eat differently and as such, unfortunately (for now at least) this requires more effort to seek out these weird things. Judging by the recipes I say it is worth the effort.

What also appeals to me is the style and approach of the book. It doesn't fall into that hippy, eco stuff. It is modern and contemporary, just like the one in ten of us in the UK that don't eat meat, are no longer 'good life' stereotypes.

Brilliant! The recipes work even though some sound unusual. I often find that recipes in other books need quite a bit if tweaking but these seem to work as described. Delicious, especially if you like spicy food. V do-able with ingredients that you'll find from a good supermarket.

Definitely a good buy!

Really good. Lots of variety. Relatively sparing use of cheese, which I welcome because it is over represented in the vegetarian recipes that I already use. I am not a vegan myself but many of the recipes are vegan or can be adapted for vegans. Some unusual ingredients but I disagree with those who say that they are hard to get. Not least because most of them are available on Amazon. And the writer is very pragmatic - often alternatives are suggested. Indeed the book encourages experimentation with different ingredients and combinations.

So far only thing I couldn't get from anywhere on the web at reasonable cost is Strozzapreti (pasta) but Casarecce are very similar (just a slightly different length) and available in Waitrose.

I think Anna Jones is going to be one of the next generation of influential food writers and chefs.

Since I bought this, entirely on spec, a few weeks back I have tried many of the recipes on my critical family. The result . . . a resounding success. The recipes are easy to follow and do not rely entirely on exotic and unobtainable ingredients and I have managed to find most things despite being in the sticks. Flavours are subtle but very, very good. I find the whole approach refreshingly pragmatic. I look forward to working my way through the entire repertoire.

I am so glad I ordered this recipe book after seeing an article in the Guardian and trying out The Turkish Fried Eggs and the Really Hungry Burger. Both dishes were delicious and a big hit with my husband. I have also tried the Popcorn Tacos to accompany our new favourite summer time drink Blood orange and agave margaritas (ordinary oranges work just as well). The 'Any night of the week pizza' is just brilliant! Who'd have thought of using cauliflower as a base. It is gorgeous and crunchy and satisfying. I had some left over and, encouraged by the author Anna Jones who suggests different ways of using up extra sauces and varying the recipes, I topped it with a poached egg for lunch. Yuummmie! Just of the thought of it makes me want to eat it again, right now! The recipes in this book are so different from anything I have ever tried before. Innovative and so tasty and such a refreshing change to use vegetables, herbs and grains in such an unusual way. I have loved every recipe so far. Well done Anna and thank you so much for producing such a wonderful keep-sake recipe book.

Absolutely love this book. The recipes are simple enough to make with no kitchen drama but are full of flavour and have satisfied even my most carnivorous guests! I've not had any problems finding the ingredients, most are available on Ocado. Will be working my way through this book greedily.
