Smith & Daughters: A Cookbook (That Happens to be Vegan) ignores convention in favor of plant-based creativity in the kitchen. Shannon Martinez and Mo Wyse set out to build a restaurant that’s fun and full of life with a rock and roll vibe, and where good food is served – that happens to be vegan. No shouting about saving the animals. Shannon comes from the perspective of a carnivore and combines science, innovation and whimsical methods to create dishes and flavors that aren’t the norm for vego/vegan food. She instead tries to replicate the tastes and textures of meat that is the opposite of bland, predictable vegan food.

Across 7 chapters, including big plates, small plates, salads, sweets, dressings and drinks, Smith & Daughters offers 80+ delicious vegan recipes with a Spanish twist to recreate at home. From 'chorizo' and potato, Spanish 'meatballs' in a saffron almond sauce, chipotle cashew 'cheese', 'tuna' and green pea croquettes to doughnuts, avocado and corn icecream, the recipes give new inventive life to classics that will appeal to meat and vegetarian eaters alike.

About the Authors

Mo Wyse is a Seattle and NY expat. She studied journalism, has a background in production but dedicated her passion for creative, plant-based food to creating Smith & Daughters, where she is the logistical, front-of-house and marketing brains behind this gun team.

Shannon Martinez has cooked since she can remember and due to the influence of her Spanish paternal family and her outside the square, innovative talents she’s contributed to kitchens across Melbourne over the past nearly 20 years. Shannon eats meat, but has perfected her vegetarian – and latterly – vegan repertoire saying this is what makes her food so good; she tries to replicate the tastes and textures of meat, rather than putting out bland, predictable, vegan food.

Smith & Daughters on Brunswick Street, Fitzroy began in 2014. Food lovers went nuts. Almost immediately, they had grown to 40 staff and were doing 400 covers a night. In July 2015, they opened Smith & Deli, in nearby Moor Street an all vegan convenience store and deli. The idea here is a carefully curated selection of all vegan groceries, and freshly made pastries, salads and take-home vegan meals. There are also 32 made-to-order sandwiches, “cheese” and “meat” by the kilo - and, often, queues out the door.

      Thank you girls for a beautifully written cook book. I discovered your book on a instagram friends site and to be honest fell in love with the photographs, then I brought one for my vegan daughters birthday and she was so blown away, telling me that she has been wanting to buy for ages :) can't wait to try and cook all the yummy meals

          Having been to the restaurant, I could not wait to get my hands on this cookbook. The recipes I have made, so far, have been very good-tasting and look identical to the photos in this cookbook!

                          recipes take a little while, lots of ingredients, but after you've stocked up it's a great sunday for meal prep for the week and so worth it amazing food and flavours.
