A Modern Way to Eat


Anna Jones is a London-based cook, stylist and writer extraordinaire. In this, her first book she details 200 satisfying, everyday vegetarian recipes (that will make you feel amazing).

Anna simply and diligently lays out how she builds her recipes – including an 8-step process to building any dish, starting with just one vegetable then adding a ‘supporting role’ vegetable, flavour, herbs, crunch and seasoning to finish.

Recipes cover recipes for morning noon and night and all the treats in between.


-       California miso, avocado and butter bean salad [see Yes, Joy’s adaptation to this recipe]

-       Mushroom and parsnip rosti pie

-       Mint, pistachio and courgette polpette

-       Carrot and black pepper soda bread

-       Blood orange and agave margaritas


Jones is an inspiration for anyone with the niggling feeling their career isn’t for them, for anyone (like me) who's ever wanted to throw it all in and follow a passion for food instead. After quitting her day job she started out cooking for Jamie Oliver at his London restaurant Fifteen then branched into food styling and writing and has now been dubbed the UKs ‘New Nigella’.
