Amy Chaplin is the author of At Home in the Whole Food
Kitchen, an IACP and James Beard Award-winning book that
celebrates the art of healthy eating. Her approach to food is
inspired by nature and the healing benefits of whole food
ingredients and has been driven, in part, by her rural upbringing
in Northern New South Wales, Australia; her experiences cooking in
different cities around the world; and her position as the former
executive chef at New York's renowned vegan restaurant Angelica
Kitchen. Chaplin is a teacher, consultant, recipe developer, and
personal chef. Her recipes have been featured in the Wall Street
Journal, the Washington Post, Vogue, the
Guardian, and Martha Stewart Living, among other
publications. Chaplin divides her time between Brooklyn and upstate
New York. Find her on Instagram @amychaplin.
Named one of the Best New Cookbooks for Fall 2019 by Bon Appetit, Chowhound, Epicurious, Modern Farmer, Mind Body Green, and more
"There's no shortage of vegetarian cookbooks out there, but it's
rare that I find one that inspires me page after page as much as
Amy Chaplin's Whole Food Cooking Every Day. . . . And since
most of the recipes in the book are designed to keep for five days
or longer, you can mix and match a few recipes to make a week's
worth of healthy meals, even on a busy schedule."
--Bon Appetit "Gorgeous. . . . This is food that makes you feel invincible."
--New York Times Book Review "A treasure trove of healthy nourishment."
--Forbes "[This] book recently garnered a 2020 James Beard Foundation award in the vegetable-focused cooking category, but for me, this tome is also a winner for COVID-style cooking. . . . Minimalist, straightforward, and replete with whole foods."
--Atlanta Journal-Constitution "Some cookbook authors have earned my complete trust, and Amy Chaplin is one of them. I've never made a thing I didn't love from her stunning first book. . . . [Her] latest, Whole Food Cooking Every Day, starts with the same philosophy as her first -- that cooking with ingredients as close to their natural state as possible can be inspiring and nourishing. But this time, she sets out to make the prospect even more accessible, using base recipes for pastas, soups, nut butters, sauces, beans, muffins and more, and then expanding each with multiple variations."
--Washington Post "For anyone looking to add more plants to their plate, this cookbook by James Beard award-winner Amy Chaplin is a must."
--Epicurious "This cookbook highlights [whole foods] in master recipes that can then be transformed into multiple satisfying meals throughout the week so it's actually easy to stick to your best intentions (without sacrificing any flavor)."
--Chowhound "This is less a cookbook than an encyclopedia of healthy food. . . . It's a book of recipes, but it's also a book about how to cook and eat in a healthful way, making it a must-have for anyone looking to make over their mealtimes."
--Mind Body Green "Gorgeous. . . . Every time I flip through it for ideas, I feel like I spent a day at the spa."
--Cup of Jo "Nicely illustrated with close-up color photographs, this book encourages cooks to try new ingredients and techniques to make healthier food."
--Library Journal "In the realm of healthy cooking, Chaplin has made a name for herself for her comprehensive approach to whole foods, gluten-free fare, vegetarian dishes, and vegan options. Here, she offers the home cook more instruction on how to achieve delicious foods within healthy parameters."

--Heidi Swanson, author of Super Natural Every Day "Amy Chaplin's new book is appealing on every level. The recipes are simple and down-to-earth, healthful yet mouthwatering. This is real food."
