Mary’s credentials on the culinary front are impeccable: as well as starting up the MFM campaign with her father Paul and sister Stella in 2009, she worked with her mother Linda on her popular range of meat-free cookbooks, and has been a consultant for Linda McCartney Foods for more than a decade.
“Mary’s book combines smart, achievable recipes with her own gorgeous food photography,” says TV chef Rachel Allen. “I think it’s absolutely divine.”
Examples include Lip-Smacking Minestrone, Mexican Bean Tortilla, Asparagus Tart, Fruit and Nut Granola, Butterbean Stew and Coconut Rice Pudding – dishes that will tempt meat-free eaters and meat-reducers alike.
