We’re about to be spoiled by yet another delicious vegetarian cookbook.

Days after Jamie Oliver announced his plans to create a compilation of all-veg recipes, Mary McCartney, famous daughter of Sir Paul, has also thrown her hat into the ring. The 41-year-old professional photographer is promising a 2012 release for a book that is filled with “uncomplicated, tasty meals” and “beautiful pictures to go along with them”.

The first-time author is hooking up with publishers Chatto & Windus for the book — and hopes to carry on the work of her late mother Linda by inspiring others to go meat free.

“I am excited to be working with Chatto & Windus on a contemporary vegetarian cook book,” she said in a statement. “My mother, Linda, became the focal point for vegetarians and meat reducers in the past and helped inspire many, through her books and actions, to realize that there was a viable and tasty alternative. I am so proud to be able to carry on what she started. Vegetarian cuisine has come a long way and with the addition of my other love, photography, we are going to try and show just how sophisticated and varied the vegetarian palate has become.”

The publishers are just as excited, promising a book at will appeal to people of all diets — and jump visually. “As a photographer she has a unique vision, and a story to tell,” they write. “The book will look as irresistible as the food.”

Yum — my 2012 Xmas list has already started.

    I will most definitely be purchasing Mary’s cookbook, but not Oliver’s, he is still a cruelty chef, working with meat, poor abused animals…! Thank you Mary, looking so forward to this cruelty free cookbook!!! Your mama would be so very proud…
