With her debut cookbook, A Modern Way to Eat, Anna Jones—who happens to be Jamie Oliver’s protege (he wrote the book’s forward)—is giving foodies in 2014 exactly that. More than 200 ways to leave meat off of our plates (even if only for a day), and do it without ever feeling like we’re missing out.

In the past we’ve been fed two vastly different types of vegetable-led food. It’s either stodgy and loaded with cheese to make up for a lack of imagination, or nutrition-obsessed and not winning any converts in the flavour department. With A Modern Way to Eat, Jones’ is trying to bridge that gap.

She succeeds with beautiful recipes that you’ll come back to again and again; it’s a gold mine of drool-worthy vegetarian fare designed to appeal beyond those who are strictly veg. It’s for people looking for fresh ways to weave meatless meals into their everyday lives.
