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.

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!
