East by West by Jasmine Hemsley
Hemsley’s Ayurveda-inspired cookbook is even for those who don’t know their dosha from their chakra. Ultimately it’s about fresh, exciting food made with Ayurvedic principles at heart. She takes savoury recipes (like dosas) and puts a sweet breakfast-friendly spin on them. Also, she shows you how to make a mean waffle with ghee, turmeric, jaggery and hazelnut even if you didn’t think it was possible.

The British food writer and entrepreneur shares recipes that are all plant-based, dairy-free, and gluten-free. Little wonder then that she’s racked up over 1.3 million followers on Instagram.
Nina Capri by Nina Parker
The London-based chef turns her attention to Capri and the Amalfi Coast, and displays her flair for cooking fresh Italian ingredients with a rustic touch.

She packs in plenty of gluten-free and dairy-free options. Most of all we’re sold on her light approach to cooking.
