Aquafaba literally means bean water - the water that is drained off neutral-coloured beans like chickpeas, white beans and cannellini beans. The discovery of aquafaba has blown open the world of vegan baking. Things that were previously not possible, now are. Eggs are the hardest challenge when it comes to baking because the chemical properties of eggs made them integral for binding and leavening but now there is a perfect substitution and that is aquafaba. This collection of recipes is not only for vegans but also for anyone who has an allergy to dairy and eggs. It is proof that you can go egg-free and still enjoy delicious recipes. You will never miss eggs again. The general rule of thumb is 345 ml of aquafaba equals one egg. It is the protein in aquafaba when mixed with some sugar and a pinch of cream of tartar that perfectly simulates egg whites. Neutral in taste, you do not have to worry about your dishes tasting beany. All your breakfast and brunch favourites are here from omelettes, French Toast and pancakes to scones and crepes. You will enjoy satisfying and sumptuous Vegan Shepherds Pie, Vegan Mac & Cheese and Manicotti for lunch or dinner. And you can once again enjoy Alfredo Sauce over your pasta. And the meringue desserts are not to be missed - from Fruit Pavlova and Sweet Potato Pie to Lemon Meringue Pie. Chocolate Chip Cookies, S'mores Bars, Snickerdoodles and Chocolate Ice Cream are perfect for those children's birthday parties where allergies are now a prevailing concern. Now you no longer have to live without the culinary wonders that eggs and egg whites produce. All you need to do is open up a can of chickpeas, drain the water and you are ready to go.

Kew's Global Kitchen Cookbook is a visual celebration of the amazing variety of edible plants and how we can use them. The range of edible plants is far broader than we may suppose, with huge variety, from all corners of the world, and continually changing in how they are used and perceived. Some now regarded as familiar were once exotic, such as tea, grapes and chillies, and the source of fortunes for those who `discovered' and transported them, such as the staples of the Dutch East Indies spice trade - nutmeg, cinnamon and black peppercorns. A narrative main introduction gives context to the plants that provide the ingredients for the book's 101 recipes featuring plants from around the world, including parsnip tart, truffle crepes, Cincinnati chilli, orange vacherin, Kashmiri curry, plantation smoothie, sweetcorn and crab fritters and pineapple cheesecake with chilli. A further section features the herbs of Europe and the Mediterranean and spices from the East, with details on how they grow, tips for growing windowsill box herbs, and how to use and combine different flavours to the best effect. Each plant has its own story of travel and adventure, and historical, botanical and economic themes are brought to life through the text and beautiful botanical illustrations from Kew's archives. Relishing edible plants today needs to go hand in hand with acknowledging how lucky we are to have access to so much diversity, and how we need to preserve that for the future. The book is published in conjunction with the Kew festival IncrEdibles, from 25 May - 3 November 2013.
