Paul McCartney is paying tribute to his late wife Linda and her passion for meatless meals.
The Beatles star and his daughters Stella and Mary are teaming up for a new cookbook, titled Linda McCartney’s Family Kitchen: Over 90 Plant-Based Recipes to Save the Planet and Nourish the Soul, which will be filled with Linda’s most loved recipes reimagined.
Linda, who died in 1998, was the one who introduced the family to a plant based lifestyle, something that Paul continues to advocate for today with his support for PETA and his Meat Free Monday campaign. The singer’s Meat Free Monday Cookbook is available for purchase here.
“I grew up in a vegetarian family, so I grew up cooking and loving cooking,” Mary recently told Billboard of her diet. “My mom — the kitchen was the heart of the home so I grew up loving coming up with recipes, and cooking for friends and family. And then me and my dad and Stella started collating Meat Free Monday about 10-11 years ago, which is the idea that if you go meat free for one day a week, then it will help with your carbon footprint on the planet, so that’s a really good, really easy sort of doable way of making a difference.”
Some of the recipes included in the upcoming book are Linda’s “American-style” pancakes, chili non-carne, sausage rolls and shepherd’s pie, according to People. Additionally, Paul, Mary and Stella include some of their own top dishes, including such as pad Thai, pulled jackfruit burgers and pecan cookies.
Linda McCartney’s Family Kitchen: Over 90 Plant-Based Recipes to Save the Planet and Nourish the Soul is out on June 29.
