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.


I would buy this book a million times over!


Fantastic recipe book! I already own it and just bought 2 to give as gifts. Great condition and quick postage. Better price than buying it in the shops

This is my cooking bible!


I'm completely obsessed with this cookbook. Almost our entire Xmas lunch came out of it. This is not a cookbook for the novice or those who don't like lots of ingredients. This is for lovers of cooking and experimenting in the kitchen. So far EVERY dish had turned out incredibly. The albodingas are just unbelievable. Brazilian black bean soup is a weekly dish on rotation, the leek and kale bake...OMG! I've searched everywhere for a satisfying tofu scramble and THIS one, it's just the bomb. Try the aioli - it's truly life changing and then adding chipotles in adobo...drooooool! The sopa seca is a household hit. I've barely touched the desserts yet - we're all just hooked on the savoury dishes. My 2018 cooking goal is to make every dish from this book. There ARE a lot of uncommon ingredients but I would recommend investing - go online to find the harder to source ones - because the results are soooo worth it if you're a foodie. And DO follow the recipes. I'm a long time accomplished cook who grew up in a restaurant and for years I've not found many recipes worth following exactly. THESE are. And the book itself is just so lush and pretty. Go on - buy it and then go make some kitchen magic!

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!
