Product description

Review

‘Well, she’s done it again! Intelligent and well thought out recipes … beautifully put together and solid. So for all you dudes trying to get more of the green stuff in your life this is the one! It’s Veg-tastic!’ Jamie Oliver

‘Like bright and sudden sunshine breaking through clouded sky … A Modern Way to Cook follows last year’s A Modern Way to Eat and together they form an indispensible compendium for the contemporary cook … Its simple, wonderful workable food that will undoubtedly make people happy … Anna Jones, you queen of greens, you’ve only gone and done it again’ Guardian, Cook

‘Vegetarian recipes that can be produced in under 40, 20, even 15 minutes. Honey miso aubergines, chickpea pasta with tomato sauce, salted almond butter chocolate bars – you want to cook it all’ Book of the Week, Telegraph

‘A Modern Way to Eat was a runaway bestseller and this equally inspiring offering could change the way you cook, with more than 150 recipes for people who don’t have much time. But there’s no economising on flavour’ S Magazine, Express

‘Brilliant’ Nigel Slater

‘The kind of cook who makes you want to eat vegetarian food even if you aren’t vegetarian … Anna’s skill is that she manages to make veggie food simple and super desirable, so even if you’re a staunch meat-eater, you won’t feel like you’re missing out’ Grazia

‘Keeping food consistently healthy and nourishing during a long working week can be tough. That’s why Anna Jones’s new book A Modern Way to Cook, following the much-loved A Modern Way to Eat (hailed the best vegetarian cookbook of recent years) is all about achieving simple, easily achievable healthy meals’ Redonline

‘Hailed as ‘the new Nigella – Anna Jones is nothing short of a revelation’ Running In Heels

‘Just as fabulous as her first … The bonus is that most of her recipes can be on the table in less than half an hour – which got us dashing to the kitchen’ Jamie Magazine

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.

So far I have enjoyed using this book. Would recommend it to Vegetarians, Vegans ( has a useful index indicating which recipes are suitable) and anyone wanting to introduce more meatless meals into their diet.

Anna is a genius. This is my favourite recipe book by far. She is a proper trained chef and knows how to put a recipe together with the right flavours and quantities which work! (Unlike the newer healthy bloggers on the scene). I am working my way through the book and each recipe seems to be better than the last, each so delicious and relatively easy to make. I love the way the book is organised too into how long each recipe will take to make. Anna really makes vegetarian eating easy and flavoursome, even my non vegetarian family members and friends have been won over by her delicious recipes. This has made me hungry - I'm excited for book 3!!

My daughter is a vegan and I have made 3 of the recipes in this book so far - Buddha Bowls, Mung Bean Dahl and Sweet Potato Chilli. All three have been absolutely delicious and we also enjoyed the side dishes and garnishes suggested as they added that something extra to the overall flavours. I agree with the other reviews in that certainly the liquid ingredients sometimes need adding to and that you need to carefully watch during cooking so to add liquid when needed to prevent sticking and burning. An inexperienced cook may not know to do this. My other suggestion would be to specify what needs doing with each ingredient next to it on the actual list of ingredients on the recipe. The recipes are written such that you do absolutely everything as you are going along whereas I find it more practical to prepare first (chopping, peeling and measuring etc). My daughter and I made the Bhudda Bowls together and the kitchen was a tip. So many ingredients and every work surface covered. I felt as if it made the recipes seem far more complicated than they actually were and more time consuming than they needed to be. I have written all over all 3 recipes tried so far to leave myself notes as to how to make things easier and tidier for the next time I make the dishes. Were it not for this I would have given the book 5 stars. I now read the recipes, make appropriate notes next to the ingredients and decide for myself the best way/order to tackle each dish.

I enthusiastically began cooking from this as soon as it arrived - A Modern Way to Eat being one of my favourite cookbooks ever so my expectations for the sequel were high. I have not been disappointed so far.

It's a beautiful book, wonderfully photographed and laid out and the writing alongside each recipe is very warm and engaging. I agree that the timings beside each recipe are really a rough guide. Cooking is part of my everyday, so timings aren't really an issue for me, but this might be useful for people who are more limited on timeframes.

I loved the additional suggestions for quick meal ideas set out in table format that Anna provided in her last book, and this one is no exception. I would defy anyone to run out of ideas for meals with this book - there are just so many recipes and ideas. Anna's balance of flavour and texture is just exceptional, and her recipes have transformed my everyday vegetarian cooking.

As with the previous book, the savoury recipes are far more successful than the sweet ones. I am a fairly experienced cook, and I've had some trouble with the carrot cake flapjacks - they just fell to pieces when I tried to cut them up (after leaving to cool overnight). The quinoa / squash / feta fritters are delicious, but again, even when the mix is chilled its hard to get them to stay together in the pan. After wrangling a few in the frying pan, I baked them, and it gave me a great outcome (without the time consuming nature of frying in batches). So there's a few recipes I need to try again to get them to work better. I'm blaming my skill level here rather than lack of testing.

Overall I feel that this is *the* book to buy if you want to eat more vegetable centred meals that are colourful, delicious and most of all interesting. It's certainly not a book that will sit on your shelf gathering dust. Thank you Anna!

I got this as I really liked the first book, a modern way to eat. Whilst it is still a nice book a lot of the recipes seem more fancy and less what you would actually want to make for yourself or could even be bothered to make. Also this might sound petty but a few of the recipes don't have pictures and for myself personally it is the picture that really makes me want to make something. Overall it is a nice book, with some good ideas, but it is no where near as good as the first one.
