Every Vegan has a story...and that includes these cook book authors -
Omari McQueen’s Best Bites Cookbook
Omari McQueen at the age of twelve is the youngest vegan chef in the UK, YouTuber, youngest restauranter in the world, cooking show host and child entrepreneur. When Omari was seven years old, his mother would suffer from body paralysing migraines. As she was unable to cook and his father was out for work, Omari began helping his elder brother prepare meals for the family. Soon, he turned vegan after reading how a vegan diet could help his mother and began making the same for her.
In January this year, he published a vegan cookbook. The book begins with a small intro by Omari followed by what it means to be a vegan, some tips on becoming one and the ingredients he uses for cooking. The family has Jamaican roots hence some recipes have a taste of the Caribbean. With more than 35 mouthwatering vegan recipes starting with morning breakfast, lunch, snacks and after-meal desserts, the cookbook is a good starting point for kids like Omari who take interest in cooking plant-based recipes.
