a modern way to eat
How we want to eat is changing. More and more people want to cook meat a couple of nights a week, or are looking for interesting ideas for dishes for their vegetarian friends (whilst pushing their own vegetarian repertoire beyond a red onion and goat’s cheese tart or a mushroom risotto). At the same time we want to eat food that is a little lighter, a little healthier, a little easier on our pockets, but that won’t have us chopping mountains of veg or slaving over the stove for hours.
Anna Jones is a brilliant young cook without and food writer, who worked with Jamie Oliver for many years. Her first cookbook is a totally modern take on vegetarian eating — recipes that are healthy, nourishing, truly tasty and satisfying, and simple to make. Based on how Anna likes to eat day to day, A Modern Way to Eat covers everything from a blueberry and amaranth porridge to start the day to a quick autumn root panzanella or avocado, butterbean and miso salad for lunch; a tomato and coconut cassoulet, pistachio and squash galette, or mint, ricotta and courgette polpette for dinner.
Packed with recipes that explore the full breadth of vegetarian ingredients — different grains, nuts, seeds and seasonal vegetables — and alternative approaches to cooking that avoid too much dairy or heavy carbs and gluten, this is a cookbook for how we want to eat now.
After completing Jamie Oliver’s Fifteen apprentice programme Anna went on to be part of his food team — styling, writing and working behind the scenes on books, TV shows and food campaigns. 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 in London.
