5 Cookbooks Everyone Should Own

Cookbooks Everyone Should Own

I have frequently been asked about my diet and although strictly speaking I am not vegan, I do follow a plant-based diet, which means no meat, no dairy, no eggs, and no other animal derived ingredients.

When cooking we tend to wing it (and by "we" I really mean Jack because he does most of the cooking.) We shop from the local market and mostly stick to what is in season; our diet is full of fresh fruit and vegetables and we always cook from scratch. We tend to take traditional recipes and adapt them into vegan-friendly dishes.

There are a few cookbooks nestled on our shelves that have become indispensable and several blogs we both love to read. If you were to buy only one cookbook, I would recommend LEON: Fast Vegetarian but all of these are worth owning.

#1 LEON: Fast Vegetarian by Henry Dimbleby and Jane Baxter
#2 Veganomicon by Isa Chandra Moskowitz and Terry Hope Romero
#3 Tartine Bread by Chad Robertson and Elizabeth Prueitt
#4 Ottonlenghi by Yotam Ottolenghi and Sami Tamimi
#5 The Kinfolk Table by Nathan Williams
