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 have cooked nearly 20 recipes from this wonderful book now, and each one has turned out as delicious and lovely as I anticipated. I get really excited about cooking from this book, and in a short space of time it has won the coveted No.1 spot in my collection of over 50 recipe books. Favourites so far are the Dhal with Sweet Potatoes, Overnight Bircher with Peaches, Gado Gado (amazing satay sauce, worth the effort), Dosa spiced potato cakes, and Double Greens polpette (which also make great falafel). I cook from it several times a week without fail.

EDIT: I've only had one slight fail, and that was the Lady Grey Fig Rolls. They tasted amazing, but I couldn't get the oat pastry to work, it was too sticky even after hours in the fridge. Anyone else had problems with this one? However, it doesn't change my overall scoring of the book.

If you love cooking, and eating delicious and unpretentious foods then I think you will really love this book. I cannot wait for Anna's next one!

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.

My favourite cookbook, everything I have made has been great. Even managed to get the boyfriend, who thinks all meals should include meat to eat and enjoy a lot of these, particularly the cashew stir-fry.

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.

All recipes tried from this book so far have been delicious, and all new to me. Pleasant informal style; doesn't patronise or preach at the reader. Very impressed.

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.

LOVE this book. I've already made the granola, black bean tacos and tortilla chips. There's so much I want to try, and most of Anna Jones' recipes feature ingredients regularly on my shopping list/in my storecupboard, so these are the kind of foods I love. And I'm not vegetarian.

I've listed the recipes tried from this book below and they speak for themselves. Because of the carrot cakes, I dropped a star off my rating, they were the only thing that really failed. But I enjoyed trying recipes out of the book. I'm vegan so made recipes that were already vegan or converted them to vegan. Anna Jones gave instructions on how to make things vegan and these were useful. And I discovered some fab recipes, a couple of which are keepers.

Charred salsa pg 64 - had fantastic flavour, my favourite ever salsa. 5 stars
Hungry burger pg 186 - nice flavour but not keen on the lemon zest in it. 4 stars
Potato, onion and tomato bake pg 210 - really easy to make and delicious comfort food, in fact i'm making a version of it tonight. 5 stars
Artichoke paella pg 218 - nice flavour but not mind-blowing. 4 stars
Carrot cakes pg 292 - heavy and didn't have a great flavour. 2 stars
Lady grey fig rolls pg 303 - loved the pastry and great flavour. 5 stars
Pistachio and elderflower cake pg 304 - delicious, tangy and unusual. 5 stars
Carrot and black pepper soda bread pg 312 - tasty bread. 4 stars
