Anna Shepherd

Chef DemosCooking Demo stage

Anna Shepherd is a chef, recipe developer and cookery teacher.  She has written books on everything from thrilling salads; the versatility of sea salt; show-stopping pies; vegan mid-week dinners; Christmas feasting, sumptuous afternoon tea and cooking with veg boxes.  Love Vegetables is the first cookbook she’s written under her own name, celebrating how she cooks at home. In it, she makes vegetables taste both indulgent and exciting.  Her recipes always taste more than the sum of their parts, but, thanks to being a self-taught cook, and her cookery teaching, are always easy to follow and achievable.

Anna will demonstrate a couple of Summery recipes from her new book Love Vegetables using some the best of what’s in season. She willl show how to make veg prep easy, and include tips about how to weave more vegetables into every meal. She will show how dynamic and delicious roots and leaves are, rather than side dishes that we feel we should be eating.
