London Author Honoured for Meeting Growing Demand for Plant-Based Recipes

London – As the number of vegans in the UK is reportedly set to skyrocket by 327% by next year, PETA is recognising the most exciting vegan offerings on the market today with its seventh annual Vegan Food Awards.

Nabbing the award for Best Vegan Cookbook is London chef, author, and YouTube sensation Rachel Ama for her cookbook Rachel Ama’s Vegan Eats, which allows everyone to enjoy tasty plant-based recipes with inventive Afro-Caribbean flavours. With options such as cinnamon French toast with strawberries, chickpea sweet potato falafel, Caribbean fritters, and carrot cake waffles with cashew frosting, who could resist?

“Growing concerns about health, the environment, and animal suffering are driving more and more people to choose vegan options,” says PETA Director of Vegan Corporate Projects Dawn Carr. “With inspiring recipes and eye-catching photos, Rachel Ama’s book shows how easy and delicious it is to eat vegan.”

PETA – whose motto reads, in part, that “animals are not ours to eat” – notes that more than Luckily, one-third of Britons have already reduced their meat intake or stopped consuming meat entirely, and polls show that vegan meals are the most popular takeaway trend in the UK. Each person who goes vegan spares the lives of nearly 200 animals each year and lowers his or her risk of suffering from heart disease, strokes, diabetes, obesity, and cancer.

PETA opposes speciesism, a human-supremacist worldview. A copy of the group’s Vegan Food Awards logo is available here, and high-resolution images are available upon request. For the complete list of winners, please visit  .
