Beyond Baked Beans Green2004
A vegetarian companion edition to the bestselling student cookery book, Beyond Baked Beans. Fiona Beckett sets out in typically groundbreaking fashion to revolutionise the way in which students cook and eat vegetarian food. This is a book that treats the post-Jamie generation to a feast of wonderful and affordable vegetarian recipes coupled with sensible advice on menu building, entertaining and nutrition. A book as much for the occasional meat-abstaining student as for the dedicated veggie household. The book comprises sections called ‘Solo’ (for beginners, or those living on their own or with limited resources); ‘Sharing’ (for those cooking for fellow students – or seeking to seduce fellow students!); and ‘Show-Off’ (for the more ambitious, eager to display their new-found cooking skills). There’s also a section called ‘Baking Therapy’ (for the nostalgic, full of lots of recipes to remind you fo home).
Fiona Beckett is an award-winning food and drink journalist who has written for The Guardian, The Times and Sainsbury’s Magazine among many others, and is a contributing editor to Decanter Magazines. In 2002 she was voted Food Writer of the Year by the Guild of Food Writers. She is the author of a number of books, including the bestselling Beyond Baked Beans, and the comfort food classic, Sausage & Mash.
This book is full of delicious meals that are filling, nourishing and cheap… Beckett has her tone just right, educational but unpatronising.
