Chatto Acquire Landmark Cookbook By Mary Mccartney

Posted at 8:26AM Monday 27 Sep 2010

Chatto & Windus have acquired world rights to a landmark cookbook by photographer Mary McCartney. All recipes will of course be meat free and Mary will be taking beautiful pictures of the food she cooks. To be published in 2012.

The book will be full of uncomplicated, tasty meals to tempt both vegetarians and meat-eaters alike, enthusing readers to bring more meat-free cooking into their repertoires. Inspired by growing up with, and even working on, her mother's recipes, and using stories and photographs (past and present) to tell her life through food , Mary has created recipes for friends and family that are imaginative, creative and will be universally loved.

Clara Farmer and Poppy Hampson at Chatto said: 'We're extremely excited about working with Mary – a book about vegetarian cooking that appeals to non-veggies as well as the lifetime vegetarians is what we've all been waiting for. As a mother, Mary is the perfect person to write a book about good food, cooked well, and with ease, for all the family. And as a photographer she has a unique vision, and a story to tell – the book will look as irresistible as the food.'

Mary McCartney said: 'I am excited to be working with Chatto & Windus on a contemporary vegetarian cook book. My mother, Linda, became the focal point for vegetarians and meat reducers in the past and helped inspire many, through her books and actions, to realise that there was a viable and tasty alternative. I am so proud to be able to carry on what she started. Vegetarian cuisine has come a long way and with the addition of my other love, photography, we are going to try and show just how sophisticated and varied the vegetarian palate has become.'
