And so, we bring you the definitive edit of the cookbooks we’re loving and that you need. Like, now.

Good + Simple: Recipes to Eat Well and Thrive - Hemsley + Hemsley

Sisters Jasmine and Melissa Hemsley are at it again with their newest book Good + Simple, (£12.49). This one is filled with 140 recipes, each as wholesome, vibrant and easy-to-make as the last. We particularly love leafing through their handy tips and guides to mindful eating as well as weekly food planners if you truly have no idea where to begin. For vegetarians and vegans, there’s guides and recommendations to sub meat out where needed. Highlights for us include the Roasted Chicken Thighs with Watercress Salsa Verde and a Cannellini Vanilla Sponge Cake.
