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
