New Cookbook Honors Late Linda McCartney’s Plant-Based Recipes

Amanda M. Rye

Paul McCartney is spreading the word about vegan living with a new cookbook, PEOPLE reported. Honoring his late wife, Linda, Paul McCartney and his daughters, Mary and Stella, are releasing Linda McCartney’s Family Kitchen: Over 90 Plant-Based Recipes to Save the Planet and Nourish the Soul, featuring Linda’s best-loved recipes for a new generation.

A press release announcing the June 29 release said, the cookbook will “bring Linda’s kitchen up to date, reinventing her best-loved recipes for the plant-based cook, alongside their favorite family stories and the dishes that they now eat at home.” Linda passed away in 1998 and was a vegetarian.

“An original food pioneer, Linda believed in great-tasting, wholesome, meat-free food, and embraced kindness and compassion in everything she did,” the press release shared. The personal book will also include personal stories and family photos of the McCartneys.

“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,” Paul McCartney said in a release. “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,” he added. “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.”

Recipes include pancakes, sausage rolls, shepherd’s pie, and chili non-carne. Other recipes from Paul, Mary, and Stella’s kitchens include Panzanella salad, crunchy pecan cookies, and pad Thai.
