I absolutely LOVE this book and I need a thousand copies to give to everyone I know! Being interested in eating and cooking sustainably and ethically, I pre-ordered it; not least because the cover was so luscious, unlike so many books on sustainable living, which can look a little lack lustre and spartan. When it arrived I was literally blown away. For a start, the titles Vanessa has given her recipes are amazing, with names like 'No Child Slavery Flourless Chocolate and Orange Brownies', 'Pork with Provenance Chinese-Style Dumplings' & my favourite, 'Rubber Gloves Nettle Soup'. Each recipe is accompanied by an account for why it has ethical integrity, in some cases an explanation of the implications for choosing the non-ethical variety and also a wonderful insight into Vanessa's culinary journey as a food-writer, trained chef, wife, mother, ethical eating enthusiast & pioneer. I haven't had a chance to try the recipes yet, but I have Vanessa's other book Prepped and the recipes I have tried from there have been excellently sumptuous and trustworthy. What strikes me about Food for Thought, is that it's so superbly written and winsome and has such exquisite photography, that it is the kind of book that would appeal to all kinds of people, including those who are seriously lacking in food provenance de riguer or just plain clueless. A great and classy way to gently make friends and family aware of the issues at hand. As Vanessa says "Love should be about cherishing what matters" and Food for Thought shows you how to do that.
This second book by Vanessa Kimbell is already turning out to be one of my favourites...although I've only owned it for a few days! She has definitely managed to achieve her stated aim, I believe...to make the reader really think about the origins of the food on their plate. The style is informal...never 'preachy'...but Vanessa does help you to make informed choices when deciding what to eat. Based on her extensive knowledge - gained from her travel experiences and encounters with food producers in many different parts of the world - she knows her stuff. If you want to cook and eat delicious food (there are chapters on cooking for children, unexpected guests and long, leisurely weekends) the tools are all here! I made the 'Don't Destroy the Rainforests Digestives' yesterday - and they were declared better that you-know-who's! It's also a very attractive book...gorgeous photos throughout, beautiful paper and fonts...I think it would make a fabulous present for someone who loves to cook and wants to make ethical and sustainable choices that will (eventually) make the world a better place...as Vanessa says...'one bite at a time'. Recommended!
Only had this book for a week and already it is changing the way I think about and buy our food. For a long time I have wanted to try and be ethical and sustainable in my shopping but always thought I wasn't achieving much. Life is busy, I work full time and juggle a family and what this book does is break down the issues into small, easily digestible topics. The writing is wonderfully honest, well researched and not at all preachy. The photography is gorgeous and the book is well designed BUT even more importantly the recipes are delicious!!! The Plan Ahead Chicken has already become a firm family favourite and is so easy to make. This is a great present for anyone who loves to cooks, and wants to know more about their food and its providence. Highly recommend.
This beautifully written, photographed and presented book has transported me on a thought provoking journey that has helped me understand the impact that our food choices has. Whilst reading the books introduction and the introduction of each recipe I became aware that Vanessa Kimbell had started to leave, what i hope is a lasting impact on my psyche and how and what I cook on a day to day basis does actually affect others. Thank you Vanessa for highlighting that we all can have a positive impact on the world through the food we buy and for sharing with us some of your moving and thought provoking research and experiences - and for including yummy easy to follow sustainable recipes!
How refreshing to find a cook book that is not only beautiful to look at and read but also inspirational. Not only in the sense that it makes you want to drop everything and cook every recipe right now but that Vanessa shines a light on ethical and sustainable ingredients. She is clearly passionate and hugely knowledgeable about what she does and where food comes from and clearly illustrates the impact we as consumers can have.
Vanessa's recipes are wonderfully written and easy to follow and I can't wait to get in the kitchen, especially as she has shared her wealth of know how and experience with her beloved sourdough bread. Congratulations, what a triumph!
This is Vanessa's 2nd book and it is definitely a testament to her maturing style. The last book "prepped" was a great debut into food writing but Food for thought is more than just an easy on the eye recipe book. The recipes are ones you actually want to cook without super long lists of ingredients but more than that - by making the smallest choices in your food buying/ preparing then it shows how you can actually make a big difference to the people behind the ingredients/ your own health/ the environment/ your pocket! Totally non preachy and really a joy to read, not to mention gorgeous pictures to look at.
If you love cooking, eating good food, and are concerned about ethically sourced, sustainable ingredients, with this book, you have all the advice and inspiration you will need.
It’s a well produced, well written and informative and inspires cooking in a different way. It is bound to be invaluable to all who care about what they are eating and where it comes from, how it is produced, not to mention.....the impact on the farmers!
The mouth-watering recipes are accompanied by help and advice on how to prepare them with good quality healthy ingredients while helping to help protect the planet!
This book combines practical information with beautiful photography to inspire a more sustainable lifestyle. Written with an obvious enthusiasm and optimism for how small changes at home can make a big difference further afield, Vanessa provides ideas for everyday solutions to global problems like habitat destruction to make way for agricultural land, child labour and food waste. There’s an introduction to each of the recipes to set them in context – carbon footprints, excessive meat consumption and fair trade are all covered. The recipes are clearly written and the accompanying photos will have you wanting to get into the kitchen and start cooking.
The most beautiful, ethical and sustainable cookery book that I have ever owned. I have tried to shop ethically and sustainably for many years but it is easy to slip back into old ways sometimes, so for anyone wanting to start shopping sustainably this book is perfect, and for those of us who think we already are, there are just so many more suggestions and clever ideas here, so many more ways to buy better, so many more fair trade and sustainable options. What a clever and inspiring book, and such beautiful photographs...and not a glossy page to be found!
