What's for Dinner?: Plant-Rich Feasts for Any Occasion (Paperback)

Pre-order for despatch on publication.


Plant-based recipes for special occasions

Most of us are steeped in a meat-and-potatoes approach to eating, especially when it comes to dinner. So putting plants at the center of the dinner plate, whether for a simple weeknight meal or a celebratory special occasion, is the greatest challenge faced by people who want to switch to plant-based eating, or just eat more plants. What's for Dinner is the only cookbook series that focuses entirely on dinner. Neither glossy nor helmed by a celebrity chef, each volume in the series is a handbook to plant-based cooking. The goal is to make it easy to give plants the starring role on a plate.

More practical than aspirational, the recipes are illustrated with drawings rather than photos. Home cooks are invited to tinker and play with recipes-all vegan or vegetarian-to fit their own preferences and the ingredients they may have on hand. Each recipe includes suggestions on how to change up flavors and how to swap in different ingredients, based on considerations like seasonality, flavor preferences, or dietary restrictions. Readers also get guidance on how to bring out the best in vegetables, and what to serve alongside each plant-based entree. The books are destined to become well-loved, dog-eared companions, with room for cooks to take notes and make each recipe truly their own.

The 5-volume series adheres to climate-friendly standards; each recipe has a light carbon footprint and comes with suggestions on how to minimize waste by using "byproducts" or parts that are often overlooked, giving leftovers a second life, and getting creative with what's on hand.

The series will comprise the following volumes:

What's for Dinner...

...When You're Entertaining

...When You're Cooking for Family

...When You're Cooking for One or Two

...When You're on a Budget

...The Comfort Food Edition

This first volume is written by Susan Miller-Davis who has written about and studied food for several years. She is an experienced home cook with a passion for climate-friendly cooking. She brings her professional focus on food waste reduction and sustainable food systems home with her when she cooks. Susan brings a natural frugality to her recipes, prizing what's on hand and challenging herself to find ways to use all the parts of a plant. She also celebrates the many diverse global food traditions that elevate humble ingredients.
