From Lip Smacking Minestrone to Asparagus Tart, Butterbean Stew to Coconut Rice Pudding, Mary gives us ideas for every meal, from breakfasts to barbecues, and offer new twists on old classics like pancakes, and Shepherd's Pie. Mary is perfectly placed to write a contemporary vegetarian cookbook - good Food, cooked well and with ease, for all the family. And as a photographer she has a unique vision - this book looks as irresistible as the Food.
