Bridging the Gap

YouTube star Candice Hutchings (AKA the Edgy Veg) reveals all about her carnivore-approved new cookbook

The Edgy Veg

It’s the time of year where it feels like there’s no end of new recipe books hitting shelves in time for the Christmas rush. This year is no different, but one cookbook that seems to be standing out from the crowd is The Edgy Veg. With a book bursting with 138 recipes that have been tried, tested and approved by carnivores, this is the book you need to impress friends and family with your plant based food.

We spoke to author Candice Hutchings about the new book, her mammoth social media following, and her ideal dinner party menu.

Congratulations on the release of your new book The Edgy Veg. How did you come to release a vegan cookbook?

I’ve been in the vegan community for over eight years, and when I first started my journey, veganism was far from the mainstream. I noticed a hole in the culinary space for reimagined traditional recipes, and while I was not a chef and had never created recipes — I knew in order to commit to this lifestyle, I had to learn how to cook. That is when I started the first concept of The Edgy Veg blog. Back then it was called I am an Edgy Veg. I used the space to keep track of the meals I was creating, but also as a personal diary of my journey. When video tutorials became popular via YouTube, I jumped on that fairly early, and so, I guess publishing a book was the next obvious step in the growth of The Edgy Veg as a project.

When compiling the recipe book, how did you decide which recipes would make the cut and which ones wouldn’t make it?

About PlantBased

Welcome to our December issue of PlantBased magazine. As I’m sure you’ve guessed, we’re not holding back on the festive food in this issue — it is the most indulgent of seasons and we’re packed full of amazing plant based meals. December is a month that seems to bring people together more so than any other. Day-to-day we go about our busy lives and often get caught up in the things that aren’t important, but at this time of year we come together, spread love and remember all the great things we are so privileged to have. I know that I will be surrounding myself with all the people that matter most for the entirety of the festive season. Christmas dinner is often billed as the most important meal of the year. This can make the entire experience rather stressful, and there is nothing worse than feeling stressed in the kitchen. Check out our top tips for avoiding Christmas stress alongside your guide to creating a delicious Christmas feast, with not one, not two, but three stunning roast dinner mains. Don’t miss our hearty and fluffy Yorkshire puddings either, puddings without eggs are something that many vegans have struggled to achieve, but I've tried these first hand and can’t wait to make them myself on Christmas day. Stepping away from the December spirit for a moment and a recent trip to Amsterdam provided me with the opportunity to eat a whole lot of incredible food. Find out all about the food I ate, and how to make a veganised version of the traditional dish of stamppot too. I look forward to seeing you all in 2018, for issue 4, where we’re going to be bringing you a magazine packed with cleaner recipes to help kick-start your new year in a very healthy way.
