Here are 300 easy, fast and inexpensive recipes that use ready-made vegan preparations, such as tofu sausages, smoked tofu, seitan, tempeh, soy steaks, vegan cheeses, and dairy-free yogurt as well as regular storecupboard staples like tins of chick peas or beans, lentils, pasta, rice, quinoa, couscous, gnocchi, miso and frozen vegetables. The authors of the highly acclaimed and widely reviewed Aquafaba, are back, and this time, it is the time-poor urban dweller who will benefit from their culinary creativity. This book is designed for ‘urban vegans’. Why? Because there are noticeable differences in access to food according to where we live. In big cities like London, Paris or New York, you can find every possible vegan ingredient, and endless products imported from exotic countries. On the other hand, since there is rarely local production, it can often be very hard to find top-quality super-fresh fruits and vegetables. You may be surprised to find that almost all the vegetables and herbs used in this book are frozen. The first obvious advantage to using frozen is it’s time saving! No cleaning, no peeling, no cutting – and available in small quantities, without waste. The second advantage is having on hand the basics for an instant meal. So the aim of this book is to provide recipes for real cooking every day using mainly products that are easily found in local neighbourhood shops and supermarkets. The idea is to use what you have on hand, stored in your kitchen cupboards or at the bottom of the fridge. You are always ready to go!

For centuries the storecupboard was the most important feature in every European castle, house or hovel. Its contents were jealously guarded and fiercely protected because they represented survival. In Preserving, Potting and Pickling Elisabeth Luard chooses the best of these larder-store treasures to give recipes for pickles to jams, bottled sauces to potted and dried meats, and directions for drying and storing vegetables, pulses, herbs and funghi. She goes on to present whole meals built around convenience foods such as Portable Soup (the original soup-cube) and the two ketchups - mushroom and tomato - which have provided the secret ingredient for so many of our ancestors delicious dishes. There are recipes for storable treats like French pain d'epices (better a month or two in the cupboard) and sweets such as the lovely honey-and-almond turron of Moorish Spain and the marzipan specialities of southern France. Finally the book offers a section on natural home remedies from soothing syrups to herbal teas. Very much a companion volume to her highly acclaimed European Peasant Cookery this treasure trove is illustrated throughout with the author's own delightful drawings and paintings. Proving once and for all that fast food need not be junk food, Elisabeth Luard will once again enchant her world-wide audience with her enthusiastic celebration of good food and good husbandry. This is a timely and practical tribute to the wisdom of the past.

Everything that Chef Blaine Wetzel makes is sourced within a few miles of his kitchen, often hours after it has been harvested from the ocean, the forest, or his own small farm. Lummi will inspire professional and home chefs to pay close attention to the seasons and to appreciate and bring out the best in what is fresh and local. The recipes Wetzel showcases here are a catalogue of dishes he created at the lauded Willows Inn restaurant on tiny Lummi Island in Washington State, ranked the number one restaurant in the United States in 2017, 2018, and 2019 by OAD (Opinionated About Dining). They are divided into courses that mirror the perfect bites and small plates that Wetzel serves at a typical Willows Inn dinner: green figs and leaf cream; sea urchin marinated in tomato seeds; wild beach peas and lovage stems; a stew of chanterelle mushrooms; and a dessert of beach roses. Stunningly photographed, every dish captures a moment in time and in nature. Each recipe highlights the unique qualities of the main component, whether it's wild plum, young rhubarb, blue clams, sockeye salmon, venison, black walnuts, or a perfectly ripe melon. Each plate is breathtakingly elegant, yet the dishes themselves are unfussy and rustic. As suitable for the coffee table as it is for the sophisticated kitchen, this book is a symphony of aesthetic perfection, capturing a way of living and eating that is in harmony with the land.
