Our first recipe book, Secret Dishes From Around the World, took 18 months to write, design and illustrate following our ‘Back the Book‘ crowdfunder in August 2018. The campaign secured the funds we needed to commission Manchester-based artist Libby Element to illustrate all of the exciting vegetarian and vegan recipes that feature.

Libby Element is a talented illustrator who works primarily with acrylics; she is fascinated by natural textures and forms, and her attention to detail brings the recipes in the book to life!

This cookbook presents a refreshing diversity of recipes;  it includes vegetarian and vegan recipes from traditionally veggie-friendly cuisines, such as Indian. But it also includes dishes from countries that aren’t commonly included in plant-based recipe books – like Papua New Guinea!

Alongside the detailed illustrations, the cookbook also advises you how to make a variety of stocks for different cuisines and there’s a handy meal planner to help reduce food waste. The ‘Chef’s tips’ section shares invaluable advice that our Community Cookery School team learnt during the recipe development process.

The book also details how our social enterprise has grown since 2014. Our Community Cookery School has taught over 3,000 people how to cook, donated over 10,000 items of food to food banks using the ‘buy one, give one’ model and generated almost 100,000 meals!

During the Covid-19 pandemic, we focused on providing hot meals and food bank donations to the communities who need it the most, as well as starting to establish Bounceback teams across the UK. This means we’re now able to tackle food poverty on a nationwide scale!
