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.
