A delicious collection of sustainable recipes from acclaimed chef Mark Jensen, complete with research into various food industries and practices, and tips on making better choices for your health and the environment when buying and preparing food.

Red Lantern chef Mark Jensen believes that you don't have to start your own chicken farm or move to the country to make sustainable food choices - it can happen in your very own supermarket, kitchen or backyard. From buying seasonally and growing your own vegetables, to using all parts of the animal and selecting free range options, he shows us how to avoid waste, make fewer demands on the food chain and nurture ourselves the way that nature intended. With over 100 easy-to-follow recipes, this is a must-have cookbook for busy people who value great tasting food and want to make informed and ethical choices about what they eat.
