Many people believe veganism is a trend, that all vegan food tastes the same, boring, bland way and, above all, that it is uncreative, not filling and lacks flavour.

Shannon Martinez and Mo Wyse from celebrated restaurant Smith & Daughters don’t! In this their first cookbook

Smith & Daughters: A Cookbook (That Happens to be Vegan) they ignore convention in favour of plant-based innovation in the kitchen.

Across 7 chapters, including big plates, small plates, salads, sweets, dressings and drinks, Smith & Daughters offers 80+ delicious vegan recipes with a Spanish twist to recreate at home. From ‘chorizo’ and potato, Spanish ‘meatballs’ in a saffron almond sauce, chipotle cashew ‘cheese’, ‘tuna’ and green pea croquettes to warm Spanish doughnuts or spiced Mexican flan, the recipes give new inventive life to classics that will appeal to meat and vegetarian eaters alike.

Forget your preconceptions of vegan food. In Smith & Daughters: A Cookbook (That Happens to be Vegan) Shannon and Mo are here to challenge them all. Their aim is for people to experience delicious plant-based food the way it should be: big, bold, flavourful, noteworthy and celebration-worthy.

Shannon Martinez

Shannon Martinez has cooked since she can remember, and her innovative, outside-the-square talents have contributed to kitchens across Melbourne for around 20 years. Shannon is an unlikely candidate to be the poster girl for plant-based dining, as she eats meat – but she is and she's unstoppable. Her unique perspective gives this mega talented chef the capability to create perfect tastes and textures, rather than pumping out bland and predictable vegan food. Armed with a strong hospitality network and industry tenure, Shannon has taken on some of Australia's most meat-driven kitchens and veganised them, convincing her peers there's something to this plant-based 'trend'. Working some of the nations largest food events, with some of Australia's greatest chefs, Shannon's next stop is TV and world domination. 

Smith & Daughters on Brunswick Street, Fitzroy, opened in 2014. An instant success (both in a full dining room and media attention), almost immediately the restaurant grew to 40 staff and was doing 400 covers a night. In July 2015, Shannon and Mo opened Smith & Deli, the world's first all-vegan deli, in nearby Moor Street. Their shop offers up a carefully curated selection of all-vegan groceries, freshly made pastries, salads and take-home meals as well as a long list of made-to-order sandwiches – and has queues out the door. Their need to expand is verging on desperate,and the next locations are in the works with big, big dreams for the 'Smith & ...' enterprise to expand.

Mo Wyse

Mo Wyse is a Seattle and New York expat. She studied journalism and has a background in production, but dedicated her passion for creative, plant-based food to creating Smith & Daughters and Smith & Deli, where she is the logistical, front-of-house and marketing brains behind this gun team.

Mo has now woven herself into the hospitality industry fabric, where she has spoken on a variety of panels pertaining to both business as well as plant-based dining. People are waking up to the relevance of veganism and considering both Mo and Shannon to be outspoken advocates for expanding the plant-based foodscape.

    This was specially purchased for our vegan granddaughter, based on a recent recommendation by Matt Preston. As we are not vegans, I casually browsed it, and found plenty of recipes we could use ourselves, and bought them to our granddaughters attention. She is so happy with this particular book, a long fan of the authors, and uses plenty of ingredients she can source easily. Her comment "Grandma this book is tops and you and Grandpa hit the nail on the head"
