About the Book

Solo Cooking for a Sustainable Planet is unique in being designed both for those who cook alone and for those concerned for sustainability of our fragile planet. The recipes are therefore vegetarian and pescatarian, minus meat and poultry. The recipes are also reluctant cooks and are therefore simple. Many recipes include suggested variations, in the conviction that experimenting in the kitchen can be fun. Since the author has lived ten years in Japan and over three in India, many recipes reflect the cuisine of these and other Asian nations. Any recipe designed for one person can of course be multiplied for more servings.
