Martin Shaw's New Veggie
Previously known more for his superb acting
talent than his kitchen skills, outstanding British actor
Martin Shaw has authored his own delicious vegetarian cookery
guide for animal welfare organisation Viva!.
Colourful, easy to follow and conveniently practical, Martin
Shaw Cooks Veggie is a 28-page guide packed with mouth-watering
recipes for impressive dinners to drinks and snacks. With
inspiring advice and photographs along the way it brings confidence
and creativity to both the experienced chef and the modest
beginner. Information on the extensive range of vegetarian
products now in both supermarkets and health food shops makes
some of the recipes even easier and quicker to rustle up.
Martin, a committed vegetarian since 1971, said: "When
you become vegetarian it actually broadens your horizon rather
than limits it, as it encourages you to try lots of new foods
that you've probably never even heard of before! My wife Vicky
and I are both keen cooks and when friends come round we like
to dazzle them with impressive veggie fare. They don't even
notice there's no meat, and we've yet to receive one complaint!"
The guide starts with breakfasts of pancakes, smoothies and
vegan fry ups before suggesting tempting treats for your elevenses.
Later, savour some great soups before wrapping up some tortillas
with luscious fillings. Then it heads into main meal mode
with winter warmers such as spag bol or coconut curry and
also lighter bites such as leek and almond tart or chick pea
and apricot cous cous. And don't forget the scrumptious puddings
that no-one can resist. But whatever weight your readers put
on their waistline they'll loose instantly off their conscience,
as every recipe is completely animal and cruelty free.
The guide costs a mere £1.50 (including p & p)
and is available from Viva!
