Inspired by ethically sourced, sustainable ingredients available from your local suppliers, Vanessa shows how what you cook can make a real difference to those who produce it and to the environment.
Recipes are simple, unfussy and easy to cook at home - making everyday classics ethical and sustainable - with chapters focusing on Basics, Getting Ahead in the Kitchen, Simple Suppers, Feeding Children, Leisurely Weekend Food and Special Occasions (our wonderful Essex quinoa even gets a mention). Let Vanessa inspire you to adapt the way you cook and change the world one delicious bite at a time, here's what she has to say about her motivation for writing the book;
"Simply put I believe that our health and the health of the earth is ultimately intertwined, and eating is not just about fashion, or trends or the latest fad diet, it is about nourishing ourselves and the planet, and yet eating is also a political act. This book shows us how we can easily use the opportunity of eating our everyday food as a means to change the world literally one bite at a time, by sourcing our food with thought, and standing up for the farmers, the food producers, and the people who are producing our food in the right way."
Vanessa Kimbell is a fourth generation baker and chef, she founded and teaches at The Sourdough School in Northamptonshire and is a regular contributor to the Food Programme on BBC Radio 4
|The flamingo has landed! We're excited to offer pink Flamingo peas from the very first UK harvest.|
These amazing pink Flamingo Peas are a new variety, named by you and first grown at scale in the UK in 2021.
These split peas have the intensely orange-pink cotyledon, that shows as a subtle through the translucent white skin of the whole Flamingo peas.
Split pink peas make superb hummus and can be substituted in recipes for other split peas or chana dal. We look forward to hearing how you've cooked them!View full product details
Britain's original bean, the fava bean is delicious, nutritious and good for the soil. Our Organic Whole Fava Beans are perfect for spicy Egyptian ful medames, truly British baked beans, stews, curries, salads and more.
Our current crop of whole fava beans are the unusually small, round and wonderfully tender Maris Bead variety, bred over 50 years ago at the Plant Breeding Institute on Maris Lane near Cambridge. Whether they're cooked from dry or used canned, we think these are our best ever whole fava.
|These wonderfully wrinkly peas have a distinctively sweet and grassy flavour. Their especially high levels of resistant starch provide excellent nourishment for our gut flora.|
Wrinkled peas are mostly grown for freezing but if not harvested in time they go to waste. Not these ones!
Whole wrinkled peas are superb in stews and curries, with a distinctively sweet, grassy flavour.
We're still experimenting with ways of cooking these peas ourselves but they can be substituted in recipes for other whole peas, especially whole yellow or blue peas. We look forward to hearing how you've cooked them!
Grown at Great Glemham Farms in Suffolk's Alde Valley.View full product details
