This is not a cookbook for the faint of heart; it’s full of bad language, sassy instructions and delicious vegan recipes that will still be pleasing to non-vegans. It all started on a blog, which soon became very popular (after stars like Gwyneth Paltrow sang its praises: “This might be my favorite thing ever”) and now it’s packaged up in a beautifully photographed hardcover that was one of the most popular cookbooks of 2014. The recipes are not only hilarious; they’re also incredibly healthy, and affordable- what’s not to like?

Freda Kelly was just a shy Liverpudlian teenager when she was asked to work for a local band hoping to make it big - the Beatles. Freda had faith in the Beatles from the beginning, and the Beatles had faith in her. As many people came in and out of the band's circle, Freda remained a staple because of her unfaltering loyalty and dedication. As the Beatles' devoted secretary and friend, Freda was there as history unfolded, witness to the evolution of the greatest band in history.
