When I first became vegetarian my friend Claire gave me Rose Elliot’s The Classic Vegetarian Cookbook.
It has lots of basics and nice ideas and has been my most-used book ever. Since then Rose Elliot has written many more cookbooks, both vegetarian and vegan.
Her website has some delicious recipes on it, as well as lots of helpful tips on being a healthy veggie. Some of her books are also displayed… I have several others by her and love them all.

When looking at her website I found out that she received the MBE from the Queen in 1999 for services to vegetarian cookery. Rose is patron of a number of charities, including the Vegetarian Society in the UK, VIVA! (Vegetarian International Voice for Animals) and The Vegetarian and Vegan Foundation.
