The Orion Publishing Group has acquired World rights to Linda McCartney’s Family Kitchen: Over 90 plant-based recipes to save the planet and nourish the soul, by Linda, Paul, Mary and Stella McCartney. The book will be published on 24 June 2021.
Over thirty years ago, Linda McCartney first blazed the trail for meat-free cooking, and she shared the pleasure of eating compassionately around her family table. Now Paul, Mary and Stella bring Linda’s kitchen up to date, re-inventing her best-loved recipes for the plant-based cook, alongside their favourite family stories and the dishes that they now eat at home.
The original food pioneer, Linda believed in great tasting, wholesome, meat-free food, and embraced kindness and compassion in everything she did. Her legacy lives on in Linda McCartney’s Family Kitchen, a collection of 100 simple, fresh and inventive plant-based recipes that fit perfectly with how we want to eat now.
In Linda McCartney’s Family Kitchen, Paul, Mary and Stella have re-imagined Linda’s classic recipes, bringing them up to date for the modern, plant-based cook. Because how we eat is changing, with more and more people choosing a meat- and dairy-free diet, even if only for one or two days a week. And this change is kind to the planet too: a plant-based diet can reduce an individual's carbon footprint from food by up to 73 per cent.
Alongside family favourites such as American-Style Pancakes, Chilli Non Carne, Sausage Rolls and Shepherd’s Pie, Paul, Mary and Stella share the dishes they cook most at home: Pad Thai, Pulled Jackfruit Burgers, Panzanella Salad and Crunchy Pecan Cookies to name just a few of the simple, nourishing and sustainable recipes included in this stylish book.
Complete with personal stories and intimate family photos spanning three decades, Linda McCartney’s Family Kitchen is not only good for you, but for the planet too.
"Years ago, before anyone had woken up to the idea of environmental and health and animal welfare issues, Linda was blazing the trail with vegetarianism, telling people about it and promoting it. At home, she would cook for the family and these recipes have been now brought up to date for a modern audience, so they’re all now plant-based and fabulous. In the book there are family photographs and stories from those days, and of course lots of great, beautiful tasting healthy recipes. So I hope this book inspires conversations about sustainability and about modern living amongst people besides also just giving them some great recipes to eat.’'- Paul McCartney
"It is such an honour to be working with the McCartney family on this important cookbook. As well as fantastic cook, Linda was a true pioneer who campaigned relentlessly for animal welfare and a sustainable future. Thirty years on, it is a privilege to help share this important message once more, and to bring her delicious recipes up to date for a plant-based audience." - Anna Valentine, Executive Publisher, Trapeze, Seven Dials, Orion Spring
An original food pioneer, Linda McCartney believed in great tasting, honest, meat-free food and the shared pleasure that eating well could bring. As well as an activist, she was an iconic photographer: the first female photographer to have work featured on the cover of Rolling Stone magazine, and exhibited in the Victoria & Albert Museum and the National Portrait Gallery in the UK and the US. In Linda McCartney’s Family Kitchen, Paul McCartney and his daughters – photographer, filmmaker and food writer Mary, and fashion designer Stella – are dedicated to sharing Linda’s trailblazing passion for wholesome cooking that is kind to the planet.
