‘A delicious and much needed nudge towards a healthier and more sustainable kitchen’ – Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall

We’re delighted to welcome the hugely charismatic and spirited food writer, Melissa Hemsley.  Her new book, Eat Green is for everyone who wants to enjoy good, delicious food, that is simple to make and affordable to cook, but that also helps cut back on food waste in the kitchen. Every one of the flexitarian recipes in Eat Green celebrates vegetables as the star ingredient and, where meat and fish are used, easy swaps are included so vegetarians can enjoy every recipe.

And, if you’re an omnivore like Melissa, you will find more ideas to stretch smaller but better-quality meat and fish portions further. Local, seasonal produce has been prioritised – with extra emphasis on using up all those odds and ends which usually get thrown away. To keep things as useful as possible, the recipes in Eat Green are based on the most popular fruit and veg that fill our fridges and our bins – the ones that are most bought, and most thrown away in UK.

Melissa Hemsley is one-half of the bestselling Hemsley Sisters, the authors of The Art of Eating Well and Good + Simple. Her first solo bestseller was Eat Happy, she is a Vogue columnist and runs the Sustainability Sessions that focus on people and the planet.
