Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble

Mary McCartney is most renowned as a photographer, but almost equally well known as the oldest offspring of Sir Paul McCartney. It was to her mother, however, that we owe the concept of Mary McCartney's inviting, uncomplicated new cookbook. Mary grew up in the household of famed photographer and animal activist Linda Eastman McCartney, a multitalented woman whose home recipes became the basis of several cookbooks. It was the example of her mother's home kitchen creations that inspired Mary to gather together a collection of her own favorite meatless concoctions. Illustrated with her own irresistible photographs, this attractive hardcover features vegetarian main courses and desserts that could tempt any carnivore.

From The Critics

“A simple book of gorgeous, tasty treats.”—Jamie Oliver

 “Professional photographer McCartney, daughter of Paul and Linda, offers readers an intimate portrait of the uncomplicated meals she serves her family and friends. Her bright photographs of landscapes, family members, ingredients, and finished dishes accompany comforting vegetarian recipes for Breakfast Pancakes, Lightning Lentil Soup, Shepherd's Pie, Creamy Chocolate Mousse, and more. These recipes aren't meant to impress or instruct; they are honest, home-cooked favorites for everyday occasions. VERDICT: This celebrity cookbook, which features attractively packaged easy recipes, would be a thoughtful gift for novice cooks.” --Library Journal

    I felt like I did something indulgent for myself by just spending a few minutes flipping through the pages and enjoying the photography. Once I started actually paying attention to the recipes, I wasn't disappointed. There are a few recipes that are a little obvious (quesadillas), but some that are very unique and have quickly become household favorites for us. It's a beautiful book.

    This vegetarian cookbook is very good. I, especially like the pictures. I am looking forward to trying some of the recipes. I got a chance to meet Mary McCartney at the Union Square NYC book signing. She's very down to earth and pleasant.
