Anthea Amore has been a vegan and a passionate vegan and gluten-free cook for the past 26 years.
Creating dishes and the likes for others over the years has resulted in the culmination of her new cook book – Passion. Organic vegan recipes to live for.
Anthea, along with her husband Caspar Brace, has self-published the book, which is a collection of the most popular blog posts and a few new recipes. It has a chapter on the ‘Ethics of our food choices’ including ‘Going organic’, ‘Veganism & the environment’, ‘Fresh & local’, ‘What is Fairtrade?’ And ‘Why GMO free?’.
The book includes a comprehensive pantry list, glossary with nutritional tips and a resource section at the back of the book, with websites to visit, DVDs to watch and books to read.
Dishes such as beetroot & lime gazpacho shots, Sang Choy Bow with crispy tempeh, millet patties with sweet beetroot & caraway relish, chocolate salted hazelnut fudge and mini raw lemon & blueberry cheesecake.
The book will be launched on 3 October at the Santos balcony in Mullumbimby at 6.30pm by Santos Mullumbimby store manager and one of the founding members of the Santos Ethics Committee, Erik Adams. Sunset canapés will be served while listening to the eclectic tunes of Dinkum Bohos, followed by DJ Sheik Yerbooty.
