Book Description

March 19 2012
In 2009, Paul, Stella and Mary McCartney launched the Meat Free Monday campaign as a simple and straightforward idea to show everyone the value of eating less meat – and to make it easier for us to do so. Cutting down the amount of meat in our diet has a huge range of environmental and personal benefits, including significantly reducing the greenhouse gas emissions associated with livestock production, boosting our health by increasing the amount of fruit and vegetables in our diet, and helping us save money by offering substitutes for expensive meat and fish. Often, though, our vegetarian repertoire is limited, with the result that our enthusiasm to continue with a meat-free day wanes when we are confronted with yet again eating the same dish. With menus for each of the 52 weeks of the year – two main recipes, plus four other ideas for each meal of the day – The Meat Free Monday Cookbook addresses this problem and is aimed at everyone who cares about the environment, is happy to eat vegetarian one day a week, but needs inspiration and guidance to do so. Packed with vibrant spring soups, inventive summer salads, appetizing fall casseroles and comforting winter stews, the recipes include such enticing dishes as Grilled Figs with Ricotta, Spiced Pumpkin Pancakes, Sicilian Cauliflower Pasta, Mexican Cornbread, Pilau Rice with Cashews, French Bean, Roquefort and Walnut Salad, Watermelon Granita, Hot Mozzarella Sandwich, Roasted Halloumi Wrap and Onion and Walnut Muffins, and cover everything from alternatives to the ubiquitous ham sandwich in your packed lunch and the traditional cooked breakfast to satisfying snacks for when hunger strikes. With contributions from Paul, Stella and Mary McCartney, as well as celebrity and chef supporters of the campaign such as Skye Gyngell, Giorgio Locatelli, Yotam Ottellenghi, Tom Aikens, Kevin Spacey, Pink, Twiggy, Woody Harrelson, Vivienne Westwood and Pamela Anderson, The Meat Free Monday Cookbook is guaranteed to tempt even the most confirmed carnivore. The Meat Free Monday campaign was launched by Paul, Stella and Mary McCartney in 2009 and its message is One Day a Week Can Make a World of Difference. The campaign aims to encourage everyone to do their bit to help protect our planet by demonstrating that by giving up meat for one day each week you can save money, reduce your environmental impact and live a healthier life.

Product Description

Review

"McCartney is returning to her roots and following in her mother's footsteps with "The Meat Free Monday Cookbook." The idea is to show people how easy it would be to not eat meat one day a week by offering seasonal recipes, from a spring ragout of artichoke hearts, broad beans, peas and turnips to a leek and ricotta tart. More an environmental conversation than a vegetarian one, the book draws its inspiration from the Meat Free Monday campaign that McCartney, her father and sister Mary launched in London in 2009 in an attempt to bring light to the detrimental effects of the agricultural industry." -- The Wall Street Journal

"The Meat Free Monday Cookbook is a beauty of a book, packed with 52 weeks of healthful, seasonal meals sure to inspire individuals of all culinary persuasions. We applaud the McCartney family's unwavering efforts to promote a healthier, more sustainable diet. This latest endeavor is a truly delicious way to continue the spread of the global Meatless Monday movement!"  -- Sid Lerner, Meatless Monday Founder and Chairman

3.0 out of 5 stars Visually Stunning / Why Monday? Aug. 8 2012
By Cee Ess TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
So here's the deal: If I'm going to plunk down my hard earned scheckles for a cookbook, when there are thousands of quality free recipies on the internet, the book has to offer something more. I decided to buy this one mainly for the planning aspect of one full day's menu per week. Okay, yes, the "McCartney" name had a small bit of pull, but really it was because it gives weekly choices by season. I looked at the preview through Amazon and decided that it lived up to that and was worth spending the money.

More than just a book, this is a campaign, a concept - enticing people to go meat free once a week. They've chosen Monday, maybe because of the "m" alliteration (Paul was always good with that sort of thing - maybe it was his idea). But I agree with the other book review on amazon.ca, previous to mine, that Monday isn't necessarily the best day, or the only day in the week for that matter, to go meat free. Growing up, Friday was always the meat-free day.

The book has snacks and packed lunch options, not just breakfast and dinner. There are no inclusions of fish or seafood. Eggs, however, play a predominent role as do cream, milk, sugar and chocolate. It's a contradiction that reviewers on the amazon.com site have pointed out as well.

I plan to go through all of the weeks and create my own personal list of the recipies that I would realistically make once a week or more. Most of the recipes are interesting concoctions,not too crazy or bizarre and sometime a little boring. Here are some examples.

1. The cauliflower mac and cheese boils the cauliflower. Roasting it would produce a tastier result; add some grapes tomatoes while roasting the cauliflower and you have a winner.
2. The brownies near the end of the book are nothing exciting.

I like that the program describes food for all 3 meals of the day, not just dinner. I started out with this book interested in following the succession of week by week meals and intended to start out on the first Monday right before the Vernal Equinox. However, it really seems more practical for a Meat Free Sunday project. The recipes aren't geared for a busy monday. If you prepped your food Sunday, you could do a lot of them easier, but why not eat it Sunday? Asparagus with a poached egg and lemon is a lovely idea, but not when you're trying to pack lunches for 2 kids and get everyone eating breakfast. I wish they'd eat eggs but... even more, I wish I had time to make a soft boiled egg and steam some asparagus. And then, actually get to eat it before dashing out of the house. Like I said, maybe on a Sunday. On a monday evening, I'm not going to find the time to make individual vegetable tarts on phyllo while strong-arming homework and music practice. Only 3 sheets of phyllo from a packet seems like a waste, but why not change it to a strudel, using more of that phyllo and not fiddling around with fussy individual servings?
Great recipes, though. Lots of the produce selections are not really in season, however. Rhubarb comes to life in May, and you can't pick it til June, in North American conditions. Artichokes come from some far off southern clime, as far as I know. Sure you CAN grow them in Nova Scotia, but they're not typical.
It's fun to write in the date you cooked that day's food in your book and keep your review of the food you made, then see how many weeks you kept up with the project.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Fantastic Vegetarian Starter Cookbook - And Great for Experienced Vegetarians Too! March 17 2012
By Chip Duckett - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover
This cookbook truly is perfect for those who would like to cut down on meat, but feel intimidated about preparing a variety of vegetarian meals that will satisfy. But it's a great resource for experienced vegetarians as well.

This is one of the most sensible (and appetizing) vegetarian cookbooks I have ever read. It provides one full day's menu (Breakfast, Lunch, Snack, Dinner, Dessert) for each week in a year. It even provides TWO lunch menus per day each week, one for those who pack and take a lunch to work/school and one for those who cook lunch at home.

Most of the recipes are pretty easy to prepare, and few use ingredients that are not fairly easily found. Prep and cooking instructions are clear and easy to follow. Breakfasts, lunches, and snacks tend to be relatively quick-prep and low on the number of ingredients -- dinner offers more complex recipes and more ingredients (perfect, as this is the way most people actually cook). This cookbook was clearly written as a "gateway to vegetarianism" cookbook (and includes some VERY basic recipes like hummus and hash browns), but longtime vegetarians will find many suggestions that they might not have considered, and experienced cooks will still find many ideas for new dishes.

The book is arranged seasonally, with weekly recipes using seasonal produce for each week in Spring/Summer/Fall/ Winter. A wide variety of vegetarian proteins are included in the recipes.

Things to note: there are not photos of most dishes -- that would not be possible with the number of recipes included. And this cookbook is vegetarian, NOT vegan -- eggs, cheese, and butter are everywhere.

This cookbook was a birthday gift from a friend, and I literally read it from cover to cover right away. I'm making the Cauliflower Korma for dinner tomorrow night! (Ten easy ingredients and under half an hour prep/cook).

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Book! April 11 2012
By AnitaT - Published on Amazon.com

I just recently came off of a fruit and vegetable fast and decided afterwards that it would be better for me to modify my diet, by eating healthier and making better choices. The Meat Free Monday Cookbook, is a great book for anyone who desires to cook as well as impress yourself and the person you're cooking for. On page 82, there is a Summer Coleslaw that is really great!

5.0 out of 5 stars This is a great vegetarian cookbook Dec 23 2012
By Sclarklaw - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
I've read many vegetarian cookbooks. They all seem to have the same recipes. But this cookbook is by far the best. The recipes are not diet recipes they are just very original, great tasting recipes. If I had the time I could easily cook something out of this cookbook and be happy. The cookbook is also divided by season and the recipes include vegetables and fruit that are in season and good prices at the grocery store.
Sample recipe titles: Tangy Cauliflower Relish and Cheese Sandwich (yes please!), Cheese and Asparagus Croquettes (if you insist!), Zucchini Cupcakes (great recipe), Bayd Mahsmi (fancy deviled egg for a snack), Feta and Couscous Salad with Pomegranate (see what I mean by original?), Fig and Goat Cheese Salad, Fennel Sautéed with Peppers (dear Fennel, where have you been all my life?), Fruity Quinoa, (brilliant!).
Obviously not a vegan cookbook, but the first original, well written cookbook I've seen in awhile. Oh and the pictured are fantastic.

I was interested in attempting to become more vegetarian so I purchased this cookbook. The reviews were good. I am very happy with the decision to give it a try. The recipes are easy to follow and you don't have to purchase a bunch of strange items.
Even my meat eating husband enjoys the recipes.
Highly recommend this book if you are vegetarian or interested in adding a Meat Free Day to your menu.

5.0 out of 5 stars Not just for Mondays! April 29 2013
By Candace Gebhart - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
This is a terrific vegetarian cookbook that isn't just for Mondays! It is divided by seasons so you can eat what is fresh and local and each Monday's menu has recipes for breakfast, lunch, snax, dinner & dessert. All the recipes are fabulous, ingredients easily procured at your local Farmer's Market or supermarket, and go together quickly -- so far there hasn't been anything that takes hours to make.

I originally purchased this cookbook as a gift for a friend who doesn't think a meal is complete without meat. When the book came out a couple of the recipes had been featured in magazine articles and I thoroughly enjoyed them. We cooked from the cookbook when I spent a week at her house and was so impressed I ordered one for myself and now I'm cooking my way through it. This is the best vegetarian cookbook I've purchased in years.
