Second book in less than a year from Camilla Stephens, founder of veggie pie producer Higgidy
Mitchell Beazley (part of the Octopus Publishing Group) has acquired a new cookbook from Higgidy founder Camilla Stephens called Higgidy – The Veggie Cookbook.
Denise Bates, group publishing director at Octopus Publishing Group, acquired World Rights, All
Languages from Jane Turnbull.
Higgidy – The Veggie Cookbook will be published in August as a £20 hardback. According to the acquisition statement: 'it will be filled with more than 100 easy and delicious recipes for feel-good family food.
'This is the second Higgidy cookbook and the focus is on food for every day - whether that's a
comforting pie to plonk on the kitchen table after work and school or a lunchbox-friendly frittata.
Alongside Higgidy classics such as Garden Pea and Potato Quiche and Sweet Potato Crusted Cottage Pie, there are ingenious ideas such as a 10-minute Fridge to Frittata.
'With her bold flavour combinations and clever use of everyday ingredients, Camilla shows how to
create exciting vegetarian dishes that will satisfy even the most dedicated of meat eaters.'
Stephens began making pies in 2003, having trained as a cook at Leiths School of Food and Wine. She worked for a time as head of food development for Starbucks UK before leaving to start her own business – Higgidy – with her husband, James. Since then, Higgidy has become one of the UK's fastest-growing food companies, and its products are now stocked in several major supermarkets.
Bates said: "Camilla has created a collection of fantastically easy-going dishes for this book that will quickly become your go-to recipes, whether you’re a full-time vegetarian or are simply looking to liven up your family mealtimes."
Stephens said: "Whether you’re a committed vegetarian or dallying with the idea of meat-free Mondays, my hope is that this book will reinvigorate your repertoire of family favourites and help to show you how to cook with veggies in a new and exciting way."
Her first book, Higgidy: The Cookbook: 100 recipes for pies and more, was published by Mitchell Beazley last October.
