Recent U.S. Reviews of our Peace & Parsnips – Vegan Cookbook for Everyone:
“You don’t have to be a vegan to drool over the healthy (but hearty) recipes in Lee Watson’s new cookbook.”—Health.com
“Even as a carnivore, I find contemporary vegan recipes – or plant-based cooking, as it tends to be called nowadays – among the most creative and interesting . . . but I find Lee Watson’s Peace & Parsnips especially inspiring, full of original ideas and bold flavours.”
“As a long-time collector of vegan cookbooks, I’m always looking for the next great vegan chef: one who thinks outside the box and uses ingredients in new and interesting ways. Chef Lee Watson is the next great vegan chef for me, and Peace & Parsnips is a sensational addition to my collection.”
—Del Sroufe, author of the New York Times-bestselling Forks Over Knives—The Cookbook
“[Watson] writes with humor and energy about his world travels and the recipes they have inspired. The idea for a combination of warm figs and raw greens was born on a trip to Sancerre, France, but his stroke of brilliance is the decidedly nontraditional addition of what he calls lemon tofu feta.”
—Joe Yonan, The Washington Post
“Delicious, delectable, appetizing, flavorful, mouthwatering, scrumptious and tasty are all words for Watson’s first book, chock-full of interesting information, recipes, and ideas for both novice and experienced cooks. . . . Every dish is wonderfully and colorfully displayed by photographs, assuring that they tantalize the eye and the taste buds.”—Booklist
“[Watson] sets out to prove that tasty vegan food isn’t an oxymoron.”—Publishers Weekly
“Trust us, everyone—no matter the dietary preferences—will be satisfied by these wholesome and delicious dishes.”—TheNest.com
“With vibrant imagery and abundant creativity, Lee takes us on a rich adventure that proves that clean, vegan eating is anything but boring. Peace & Parsnips is a true celebration of plant-based possibilities, and the ‘life’ these foods bring to our lives.”
—Heather Crosby, author of YumUniverse: Infinite Possibilities for a Gluten-Free, Plant-Powerful Lifestyle and founder of YumUniverse.com
“Bravo to Chef Lee Watson who has us covered in this mouthwatering cookbook! Everything you need to satisfy your cravings is right here starting with breakfast and smoothies, to dips, soups, curries, burgers, and desserts. An excellent vegan pantry section is included to help guide beginners who are just starting to cook vegan.”
—Chloe Coscarelli, author of Chloe’s Kitchen, Chloe’s Vegan Desserts, and Chloe’s Vegan Italian Kitchen
“Peace and Parsnips is a completely gorgeous cookbook, inside and out…..filled with inventive ethnically styled food for vegans, and for omnivores who will be so busy gobbling their delicious vegan food that they won’t even notice the lack of meat.” – Powells.com
Recent Beach House Kitchen Cooking Holiday and Retreat reviews:
“This retreat absolutely lived up to its name in so many ways. The food was simply mouth-watering and wonderfully nourishing. It was definitely the best vegan food (actually any food) that I’d ever eaten; beautifully presented and made with so much love by Lee and the team. Lee Is passionate about plant-based food and was incredibly generous in sharing his wisdom and knowledge with us. The morning smoothies made by Jane were an absolute highlight too!
Will and Malene are an incredible team when it comes to teaching Yoga. They both totally embody their practice and their love and passion for yoga shines through in their teaching. They are so full of wisdom and knowledge and again, were so generous in their sharing of it. Will and Malene are very wise old heads on young bodies.
We had a wonderful variety of classes out on the terraces overlooking the sea. The sound of their rich voices, beautiful movement sequences and meditative practices combined with the warming sun and the sound of the ocean was indeed blissful.
The yoga was suitable for all levels – carefully crafted so that everyone got what they needed from a class. We were always encouraged to listen to our own bodies.
I can’t recommend this retreat highly enough. I came home so brim-full of love and nourishment that I was raring to go again with a renewed vigour and passion for life. Rarely does a week seem enough on a holiday but this one felt like I’d had a full 3-month recharge! Thank you all! ❤ xx Sandy – 2018″
“I am actually struggling to write a review because I actually don’t have the words to describe how beneficial this week was to me without lapsing into cliches or sentimentality.
The most awesome hosts you can ever imagine. Beautiful villa, beautiful place, beautiful food, beautiful yoga and meditation classes.
I think it stands as testament that I, and my fellow guests who were all wonderful, are already trying to reserve spaces on next years retreat which hasn’t even been launched or even decided on yet.
If you get the chance. Go. Kate – 2018″

“Very vegan…..This vibrant book is great if you’d like to have a go at vegan cooking. The recipes are tempting and aren’t in the slightest bit daunting, and author Lee Watson is charming and funny – ‘not preachy’ – in his approach in spreading the word of veganism.”
