Praise

“Well, she’s done it again. Intelligent, well thought-out recipes that are beautifully written and put together. For all you dudes trying to get more of the green stuff in your life, this is the one.”
– JAMIE OLIVER, author of Everyday Superfood and Jamie’s Food Revolution

“A Modern Way to Cook is so full of fresh ideas that I stopped turning down the corners of the recipes I wanted to make when I realized it was pretty much the whole book. From the simple to the more complex recipes, this is a good book for all days of the week.”
– DEBORAH MADISON, author of Vegetable Literacy and The New Vegetarian Cooking for Everyone

“A Modern Way to Cook cements Anna’s status as one of the most important cookbook authors focusing on vegetable-centered food. These recipes are bright, bold, and bursting with flavor, and they will surely move vegetarian cookery further from the margins and closer to the center of our culinary consciousness.”
– BRYANT TERRY, James Beard Foundation Leadership Award recipient and author of Afro-Vegan 

“A group of fashionable young women in Britain are making a career of promoting healthy eating, including Jasmine and Melissa Hemsley, Amelia Freer, Anna Jones and Natasha Corrett. The Guardian has called them ‘the queens of greens’; The Telegraph named them ‘the superfoodies.’ One could also think of them as the Daughters of Nigella, the logical successors to Nigella Lawson.”
– THE NEW YORK TIMES 

“Jones cheers cooks on to practice the art of ‘quick, calm cooking’ that balances ‘wellness and deliciousness’ on every plate.” 
– PUBLISHERS WEEKLY

“Anna Jones taps the sweet spot between healthfulness and downright decadence with inventive vegetarian dishes such as beet-and-radicchio gratin. Her fuss-free style helps busy cooks get dinner on the table in as little as 10 minutes, 40 max.”
– MODERN FARMER

“Rather than separate recipes by course, Jones breaks the chapters into prep time. That way, you know right where to go for need-dinner-now crispy cauliflower rice and where to flip for a more leisurely project like butternut-cannellini gratin. While the dishes are all vegetarian, it’s comforting to know that “modern” cooking can still include desserts like cookie dough bars and panna cotta.”
– TASTING TABLE
 
“Whether you’ve been vegetarian for years or are new to the lifestyle, this stylish cookbook is the perfect modern guide to meat-free dining. With a sumptuous collection of over 150 recipes, you’ll be cooking veggie-packed meals on weeknights in no time. Author Anna Jones was one of the originals in Jamie Oliver’s apprentice kitchen, Fifteen (also dubbed the new Nigella Lawson by The Sunday Times), and eventually became his food stylist. Since going vegetarian at 25, she’s developed a tasty repertoire and, thankfully, compiled them all in this handy cookbook. Jones makes eating healthy easy.”
– MyDomaine.com

“Anna Jones’ previous cookbook, A Modern Way to Eat, is hands-down one of the biggest favorites of Powell’s buying team.  We’ve been waiting with bated breath to dig in to cooking from her new book. I made the vegan and gluten free Pistachio and Raspberry Brownies. So ridiculously good I had to make a second batch a few days later…. Bottom Line: In like fashion to her first book (A Modern Way to Eat), Jones displays a masterful touch in blending flavors in her vegetarian recipes.”
– TRACEY TRUDEAU, Powell’s Books
