The Global Vegetarian Kitchen starts from where you are, whether you only have a windowbox with some herbs, or an allotment, yard or other space to grow things. There are recipes for dishes you can make from your own garden, as well as popular foods from all parts of the world.
With an emphasis on simplicity and versatility, you'll find it easy to start local and think seasonal when finding ingredients - it's amazing what you can do when you take inspiration from a recipe and not get hung up about making everything exactly right. So stock up your spice rack and take your tastebuds travelling.

The New Internationalist brings to life the people, the ideas and the action in the fight for global justice.
... delivers a life-enhancing message in the form of promoting caring, responsible vegetarian and vegan cooking. Needless to say, it is cuisine that is fresh, appetizing, and zesty, with international influences... a culinary indulgence whose time is now.
The Global Vegetarian Kitchen by Troth Wells is a collection of fabulous recipes, many of which have been passed down generations, from across the globe. Brandishing the motto, Cook Global, Source Local, Wells had put together a fantastic four-chapter cookery book: Starters, Soups And Snacks, Main Dishes, Salads, Side Dishes And Sauces and Dessert, Drinks And Cakes. With a growing interest in vegetarianism and veganism, this book is a one-stop shop for all your gastronomic needs. The recipes, of which there are more than 100, are juxtaposed with colourful photographs, proving that there is more to eating than meat. The most delightful element of this book, however, is the short and sweet family and historic storiy behind each recipe. No matter your cuisine of preference there will be something from one of the continents to get your taste buds tingling.
This is quite possibly my favourite cookery book to hit the shelves this year.
New Internationalist is a magazine well worth reading as it respects the intelligence of its readers. It is independent, lively and properly provocative, helping to keep its readers abreast of important developments in parts of our globe that risk marginalisation. Read it!.
A little about Global Mamas: Global Mamas is a Fair Trade cooperative in Ghana, West Africa, supporting the sustainable development of women artisans producing fair trade products
New Internationalist Australia is a member of the World Fair Trade Organization, which means we have to stock a percentage of Fair Trade products, and also adhere to Fair Trade practices ourselves. Great for supporting producers rights, and also for our staff.
