Paul McCartney was on hand earlier this week to help launch his daughter Mary's new book, Food. Mary is a photographer who follows a vegetarian diet and is dedicated to animal rights. Her first cookbook calls upon stories from her childhood and teaches readers how to reduce their meat intake. Mary even took the photographs in the book herself.
"Fresh, inspirational and irresistible, Mary's first cookbook will enthuse readers to bring more meat-free cooking into their repertoires," Food's publisher said. "From Fruit and Nut Granola to Asparagus Tart, Mexican Bean Tortilla to Coconut Rice Pudding, Mary gives us ideas for every meal, from breakfast to Sunday roasts, and offers new twists on old classics like pancakes, and Shepherd's Pie."
