Kyle Books, part of the Octopus Publishing Group, will publish its fourth Wagamama cookbook, Wagamama Your Way: Fresh, Flexible Recipes for Body and Mind, on 2nd September 2021.
Following on from the 2019 title Feed Your Soul, the new book will "bring the Wagamama story up to date, with all‐new healthy recipes that reflect their ethos of flexitarian meals, plant‐based ingredients and Asian flavours, emphasising Wagamama's drive for positive eating and positive living, inclusivity and wellbeing" the publisher said.
It will feature 70 recipes each with alternative ingredients so readers can create plant‐based versions of any meat dishes. Recipes include "vegan katsu curry, vegetarian firecracker, mandarin and sesame salad, prawn tempura ramen, and sticky mushroom and squash stir fry".
Joanna Copestick, publisher, acquired world rights all languages direct from the restaurant chain. She said: "Wagamama is such an inspiring brand to work with, always bringing innovation, positivity and energy to each of their books. We’re particularly excited about Wagamama Your Way as it concentrates on flexible recipes to nourish and inspire both body and mind while offering Asian‐inspired food ideas to provide sustenance and flavour in equal measure. It is testament to the popularity of the brand that we have secured a Waterstones special edition of the book and also two foreign language editions in advance of publication."
Steve Mangleshot, Wagamama’s global executive chef, commented: "We’re passionate about plant‐based eating at Wagamama and our ever‐growing vegan menu was designed to inspire more people to choose plant‐based more often. Just like our menu, we believe this book has a bowl for everyone and just like in our restaurants, you can modify the dishes to meet your dietary needs. wagamama your way is a cookbook filled with flexibility and the fresh Asian flavours that Wagamama is synonymous with."
Kyle Books also published Wagamama Ways with Noodles (2006) and The Wagamama Cookbook (2005).
