In Australia for the first time, the beloved cook, writer and stylist Anna Jones joins food writer Lee Tran Lam to discuss her forthcoming book One: The only way to cook for you, your family and the planet; her inventive, life-friendly food; and how we can be eco-conscious in the kitchen. Anna has worked for Jamie Oliver, been compared to Yotam Ottolenghi and been dubbed “the new Nigella” by The Sunday Times. The voice of modern vegetarian cooking, Anna believes that vegetables should be at the centre of every table. Her bestselling cookbooks A Modern Way to Eat, A Modern Way to Cook and The Modern Cook’s Year are sold around the globe. She also writes a popular weekly column for The Guardian UK.

She lives in Hackney, east London with her husband and young son.
