The folks behind London street-foodies Wholefood Heaven have released a new cookbook sharing their fresh and healthy dishes. The Fresh Vegan Kitchen by David and Charlotte Bailey offers over 100 vegan and raw recipes from Asia and India plus 'innovative twists' on the likes of Spanish tapas and Middles Eastern mezze.
The Baileys' Citroen H van can be found at Whitecross Street Market and Ally Pally in London as well as festivals, but The Fresh Vegan Kitchen has more glamorous beginnings.
"After a gruelling festive season and twelve straight weeks of camping, we thought we'd try and live the dream and treat ourselves to a couple of months in Bali to write our first recipe book and to hopefully imbue it with some of the colour, sunshine and vitality of that magical island," they explain.
"We were a bit worried we might not be able to get hold of ingredients or that the kitchen in the house we'd rented wouldn't be at all suitable; but the taxi from the airport dropped us off outside a raw/vegan restaurant and grocer and we were soon installed in a paradise kitchen overlooking the rice paddies and quite certain we'd made a good decision."
The Fresh Vegan Kitchen (Pavilion Books, £16.99) contains superfoods and fresh ingredients that are naturally low in saturated fat, salt and sugar, reminiscent of Wholefood Heaven's British Street Food Award-winning Buddha Bowl.
