Renowned chef, The Great British Bake Off judge and food writer Prue Leith and her niece, pastry chef Peta Leith, talk about their book of simple, rustic and flavoursome vegetarian and vegan recipes and about their lives and love of food.

Recipes in the book include slow-roasted tomato and goat’s cheese galette, black bean chilli with lime salsa, blackberry and lemon pavlova and stone fruit streusel cake. The pair say they like nothing more than to cook for carnivores and find them asking for second helpings and a copy of the recipe.

Prue Leith has spent 60 years at the top of the British food scene including as a Michelin-starred restaurateur, founder of the Leiths School of Food and Wine, television chef, food journalist and author. She has appeared as a judge on The Great British Menu and The Great British Bake Off. Peta Leith is a lifelong vegetarian and a former pastry sous chef at The Ivy restaurant. Here they talk to LBC radio host Matthew Stadlen, a former Telegraph interviewer and BBC presenter.
