“I grew up in a vegetarian family, so I grew up cooking and loving cooking,” Mary recently told Billboard of her diet. “My mom — the kitchen was the heart of the home so I grew up loving coming up with recipes, and cooking for friends and family. And then me and my dad and Stella started collating Meat Free Monday about 10-11 years ago, which is the idea that if you go meat free for one day a week, then it will help with your carbon footprint on the planet, so that’s a really good, really easy sort of doable way of making a difference.”
Some of the recipes included in the upcoming book are Linda’s “American-style” pancakes, chili non-carne, sausage rolls and shepherd’s pie, according to People. Additionally, Paul, Mary and Stella include some of their own top dishes, including such as pad Thai, pulled jackfruit burgers and pecan cookies.
