Tuesday February 9th

From Goldsworth Park to a place at the UK’s top table, Aimee Ryan is making a big name for herself after publishing her first book, Great British Vegan, following years of success as the developer, author and photographer behind the award-winning blog Wallflower Kitchen.

Hailed by the Telegraph as “exceptionally successful”, Aimee serves up over 80 delicious home food classics with a plant-based twist, reimagining firm favourites including Bangers & Mash, Welsh Rarebit and Eton Mess.

Aimee has kindly shared a delicious starter, main and dessert with #WeAreWoking, which will liven up any dreary February day and will leave you hungry for more!

“Let me assure you that these recipes are not difficult, time-consuming or filled with expensive, hard-to-find ingredients. They’re designed for everyday cooking and everyday people, like myself, a home cook,” Aimee said.

So let’s give them a go!
