If there is something I have a real obsession it is with cookbooks. I love food and books so when the two come together it makes me just a little excited about life. This is one everyone should own.

As some of you will know I’ve been seeing nutritionist for the past 12 months however I’m about to stop so I’m able to get back into doing my own meal plans – something I’ve always been a huge fan of. Community by Hetty McKinnon was actually a lovely wedding gift because people know just how much we love food and cooking. It’s not one we had or one that we’d even heard of so we were pretty keen to try out some of the recipes.


All I can say is that we have been blown away by the recipes because it’s exactly how we like to cook – simple with a focus on spices, sauces and textures to jazz things up. It’s not a vegan cookbook but it is fully vegetarian that is easily adaptable either way  (if you’re vegan or want to add meat). If you’re put off by the ‘salad recipes’ on the front cover don’t be – it’s overflowing with noodle, grain and legume recipes.


What I will say is that for us it just adds a bit of jazz to our current meals however if you’re lacking confidence when it comes to cooking without meat this is seriously the book for you. There hasn’t been a recipe we’ve tried that contains things that are hard to get hold of or complicated methods – it’s all effortless. If you’re a fan of cooking in bulk for meal prepping as well it’s a great one because each recipe is written to feed 4-6 as it’s written in the pre-tenths of entertaining and sharing but for us it just means we cook something and eat it everyday for lunch!
