About the Author
ALICE ZASLAVSKY is a cook, writer, vegelante and the friendliest voice in food. She believes that food doesn't just open mouths, it opens minds too. By helping people find a love of and a confidence with vegetables, she shows that anything is possible in the kitchen--and in life. Born in Tbilisi, Georgia, at the crossroads of Europe, Asia and the Middle East, Alice grew up in Melbourne, Australia, a city known for its bustling blend of cultures and cuisines. Her cooking is reflective of these many influences, a melting pot of ideas and a riotous vibrancy of flavors that vibrates with joy and vitality.

In Praise of Veg is Alice's second book and has been a smash hit internationally, published in 11 countries and translated into multiple languages. In Australia, it was shortlisted for the Indie Book Awards, the ABDAs and the ABA's Booksellers' Choice for Adult Nonfiction Book of the Year, and won the coveted title of the Australian Book Industry Awards' Illustrated Book of the Year. It was awarded a gold medal by the Gastronomic Academy of Germany, and nominated for cookbook of the year in the Netherlands by Food & Friends. In the UK, it was shortlisted for the British Book Design and Production Awards, and was highly commended at the Guild of Food Writers Awards.

Alice's first book, Alice's Food A-Z, was selected as a Notable Book at the Children's Book Council of Australia Awards. Previous to her successful cookbooks, Alice competed on MasterChef Australia, and is now the Culinary Correspondent on Australia's ABC News and a broadcaster on ABC Radio.

Alice lives on the Mornington Peninsula in Victoria, Australia, with her husband, Nick, and their daughter, Hazel (otherwise known as The Nut).
