Born in London in 1969, Mary McCartney grew up with a love of photography and vegetarian cooking, working with her mother on a range of vegetarian cookbooks and consulting on the brand for Linda McCartney Foods. In 2009, Mary co-founded Meat Free Mondays, a drive for awareness on meat consumption and its impact on the climate.
In 2012, Mary combined her photographic expertise with her lifelong love of vegetarian cooking to create her internationally acclaimed book FOOD: Vegetarian Home Cooking. Inspired by Mary’s relaxed cooking style and her passion for fresh, flavourful and family-friendly recipes, FOOD captures the warmth and simplicity of vegetarian cooking and has lead to Mary’s recipes being featured in Vogue, the Wall Street Journal, the Financial Times and Red Magazine as well as appearances on Good Morning America, The View and The One Show.
Mary is currently working on her second cookbook At My Table; a personal journey travelling through her own food memories to capture vegetarian recipes that vividly bring back specific celebrations, social gatherings and eating with friends.
