Eating green with British food writer Melissa Hemsley

From Afternoons with Jesse Mulligan, 2:05 pm on 15 January 2020

British food writer and home cook Melissa Hemsley formed Hemsley + Hemsley with her older sister Jasmine in 2010, and since then the pair have authored several cookbooks and opened a cafe in Selfridges of London.

Melissa has just released her second solo cookbook Eat Green: Delicious Flexitarian Recipes for Planet-Friendly Eating, which champions simple food that is nutritious, delicious and easy - as well as sustainable.

The self-taught chef spoke to Karyn about her new book and she shared some tips for reducing waste.

She also shared a few of her recipes, including this delicious Chermoula Cauliflower on Herby Bean Dip and her fabulous Fridge-Raid Frittata, and Tahini Choc-Chip Cookies.
