Jack Monroe has signed a deal for her next cookbook, Vegan on a Bootstrap, with Bluebird publisher Carole Tonkinson, who acquired world rights through Rosemary Scoular of United Agents.
Publishing in December 2019, the title will comprise “budget-friendly” recipes which Monroe hopes will to persuade readers that, “contrary to popular belief, vegan cooking is not expensive or exclusive”. Bluebird had already signed Monroe’s Cooking on a Bookstrap, to be released in August 2018; her previous titles have been published by Michael Joseph.
Monroe said: “Veganism has a reputation for being complicated, militant and expensive, but having given up meat and dairy two years ago, I’ve found a healthy plant-based diet can be affordable and delicious in the smallest of kitchens, or on the most meagre of budgets.’’
Tonkinson added: “Jack is a wonderfully inventive cook and a delightful writer. With the upsurge of interest in veganism, it’s great to see someone with Jack’s solid cookery experience creating a book of affordable, achievable recipes for every day.”
