Anna Jones is a cook, food writer and stylist. One grey, late-for-the-office day, she decided to quit her day job after reading an article about following your passion. Within weeks, she was signed up on Jamie Oliver's Fifteen apprentice programme. She went on to be part of Jamie's food team - styling, writing and working behind the scenes on books, TV shows and food campaigns. Now freelance, she has worked with some of the country's biggest food brands, including innocent drinks for whom she wrote the recipes for Hungry?: the innocent recipe book for filling your family with good stuff. She has also worked with other well-known chefs, such as Henry and Tom Herbert (The Fabulous Baker Brothers), Stevie Parle and Antonio Carluccio, and cooked for royalty, politicians and LA school children alike. A Modern Way to Eat is her first solo book. She lives, writes and cooks in Hackney, East London.
'Even if you don't do the cooking at home, you may well have had a brush with Anna Jones: if your plate is without meat, she's probably behind it. Because for eight years now Jones and her bestselling vegetarian cookbooks have been gently edging out chicken pie and sausages in favour of courgette polpette and carrot dhal. Jones, 42, is not short of vegetarian converts. She's up there with Yotam Ottolenghi and his sumac for the impact she's had on our culinary habits this century' Sunday Times
'One pot, one pan, one tray, one planet. . . And one Anna Jones. One is a big and bold book, as much a call to arms as it is a collection of recipes to fall for. This is a book where thought meets practical action meets deliciousness: where what we eat is no longer about how to look after and delight ourselves but how to look after and protect our planet. It's a huge achievement.' Yotam Ottolenghi
'Every so often a cookbook comes along that raises the bar for food writing. Think Nigella Lawson's How To Eat or Samin Nosrat's Salt, Fat, Acid, Heat. The latest chef to join the pantheon is Anna Jones, with One: Pot, Pan, Planet' Vogue
'It's true to say that Anna Jones always delivers: reading any recipe of hers is like receiving a promise of dependable deliciousness. With this book, however, she has given something deeper of herself. There's so much humanity and wisdom in it' Nigella Lawson
'Truly imaginative cooking' Rachel Roddy
'Still dedicated to giving us stylish dishes with maximal flavour (think broad bean and green herb shakshuka, and golden rosti with ancho chilli chutney), the book is punctuated with palatable nuggets of information: in chapters entitled 'Planet I' and 'Planet II', Jones explains how we might combat the climate crisis through small behavioural changes around the way we eat' Harper's Bazaar
