"The recipes in Britton's book and on her blog are all plant-based and vegetable-laden, but that doesn't mean rabbin food: Britton is sharing recipes with substance; this is food to dig into, it just also happens to be healthy."

I'm thoroughly enjoying Sarah's book, which is full of original and delicious offerings. We're entering a brave new world, where foraged, seasonal, raw, vegetarian, vegan and allergen-free cooking-styles are colliding head first. I've the most obscure Scandinavian restaurant books sitting along-side my raw books, and for the first time it's beginning to feel as though these worlds are overlapping in mainstream vegetarian books... Yes, there have been a spate of releases in this genre of late, but this is probably my favourite of 2015. These are dishes that are balanced, well-considered, and beautiful - they feel a little more grown-up than some of the other offerings.

One note of caution, this isn't a book for someone who's looking for the odd vegetarian recipe - not everyone keeps organic cacao nibs and chia seeds in their pantry {the cost can add up quickly unless you're using them regularly}, and so it isn't necessary going to suit those looking to supplement their usual diet with an occasional foray into this world.

I like Sarah's book, i think she offers the novelty and new, non-difficult twists in recipes. Since i frequently try new recipes from different authors, i already kind of know the combinations and tastes what to expect. However, Sarah's recipes are more interesting and i'm positively surprised when i make them.
Unfortunately, there are also many negative points.
-The division into seasons is good, but sooo impractical. It requires long searches and missing recipes. The index does not help and to look into the book is every time a struggle.
- following recipes is not easy. Already for some times i am sort of in the same line with Sarah as of soaking nuts and beans, making nut milks etc., so many things are natural for me. And nevertheless, i need to re-read and to re-think every recipe before i make it, it would be nearly impossible to follow line by line.
-the biggest drawback, as i see it, are the ingredients. Some of them are totally unheard and requires careful googling, searching and buying "don't know where" like psyllium seed husk or kombu weed, some others are simply so rare in markets that it is almost impossible to find them in the shops (like scapes). Even though i live in the same country with Sarah, i can barely find all the ingredients for any of the recipe, so I re-think and substitute, substitute, substitute. It is not entirely bad that Sarah invites to try products that can be bought only in 1-2 shops, but i would appreciate much more if she also wrote the possible alternative of what is easier to find.

I was looking forward to this book as I like the my new roots blog, but I am a little disappointed with it. I'm not keen on books split into seasons, especially as we don't get much of summer in the UK! There are also errors in the book, e.g. The recipe for homemade nut milk doesn't stipulate that the soaked nuts need to be blended with water, so people making the milk as directed would just end up with a nut cream/mush concoction. I'll probably stick more with the blog recipes, I should have learnt my lesson after buying the Ella Woodward book, which also disappointed (but I still like and refer to the deliciously Ella blog).

Best book out there for you if you are new or old to this way of life and eating. Sarah knows her stuff inside out, is so down-to-earth (having met her at an amazing super club in June!) and everything she does, is with such integrity and meaning. She is a huge inspiration. Buy the book you won't regret it.

Very good. She's worked hard. So much variety and great that there're gluten free and vegan options too. A book for all! Only thing is, I don't like the way everything is presented (by seasons). It's difficult to plan your meals I think because we do have very temperamental weather here in England. But still excellent!

such an amazing book, it won't disappoint neither those who already know Sarah's work, nor those who have yet to discover her. The recipes are delicius, easy to follow, divided by (five) seasons and a good selection spanning from more 'basic'/everyday fare, t o something a little bit more fancy. Packed with nutritional info and basic techniques. Last but not least, photography to make your mouth water. Can only reccommend!

I've just finished reading this and it's a really fascinating collection of recipes. I've earmarked so many to try, it's a bit pointless as I want to try nearly all of them! They sound absolutely delicious as well as super-healthy.
