Prue Leith and niece Peta (a longtime vegetarian) have written a user-friendly book filled with recipes for “simple, rustic and flavorsome" dishes. Cooks new to meat-free eating, who need advice on how to plan a meal without a meaty centerpiece, or how to use vegan ingredients, will find its approach particularly useful. Peta trained as a patisserie chef, and the cakes and puddings are a highlight, yet pleasingly ‘uncheffy’ to make.
