About the Author

Passionate about vegan food without being preachy, Lee Watson brings a singular sensibility to the vegan cookbook shelf. He has worked in restaurants for more than 20 years, has cooked on TV as one half of the presenting team on Fox s "Meat v Veg "and helped open a restaurant on the beach in Murcia, Spain. Besides growing his own organic fruit and vegetables, Lee writes poetry and plays guitar, practices yoga, hikes and runs in the mountains, swims in the sea, surfs and enjoys nature. He lives the good life with his partner, Jane, in western Wales, where he works as a vegan chef at an idyllic retreat center in Snowdonia National Park."


"You don't have to be a vegan to drool over the healthy (but hearty) recipes in Lee Watson's new cookbook."

"Even as a carnivore, I find contemporary vegan recipes - or plant-based cooking, as it tends to be called nowadays - among the most creative and interesting . . . but I find Lee Watson's Peace & Parsnips especially inspiring, full of original ideas and bold flavours."
--Nigella Lawson

"[Watson] writes with humor and energy about his world travels and the recipes they have inspired. The idea for a combination of warm figs and raw greens was born on a trip to Sancerre, France, but his stroke of brilliance is the decidedly nontraditional addition of what he calls lemon tofu feta."
--Joe Yonan, The Washington Post

"Delicious, delectable, appetizing, flavorful, mouthwatering, scrumptious and tasty are all words for Watson's first book, chock-full of interesting information, recipes, and ideas for both novice and experienced cooks. . . . Every dish is wonderfully and colorfully displayed by photographs, assuring that they tantalize the eye and the taste buds."--Booklist

"[Watson] sets out to prove that tasty vegan food isn't an oxymoron."--Publishers Weekly

"Trust us, everyone--no matter the dietary preferences--will be satisfied by these wholesome and delicious dishes."

"With a fresh perspective on vegan cooking, this unusual tome can increase the breadth of most collections."--Library Journal

"Filled with 200 vibrant, appealing plant-based recipes."--VegNews magazine

"As a long-time collector of vegan cookbooks, I'm always looking for the next great vegan chef: one who thinks outside the box and uses ingredients in new and interesting ways. Chef Lee Watson is the next great vegan chef for me, and Peace & Parsnips is a sensational addition to my collection."
--Del Sroufe, author of the New York Times-bestselling Forks Over Knives--The Cookbook

"With vibrant imagery and abundant creativity, Lee takes us on a rich adventure that proves that clean, vegan eating is anything but boring. Peace & Parsnips is a true celebration of plant-based possibilities, and the 'life' these foods bring to our lives."
--Heather Crosby, author of YumUniverse: Infinite Possibilities for a Gluten-Free, Plant-Powerful Lifestyle and founder of
