Mary McCartney - Author

About the Author

Born in London in 1969, Mary McCartney grew up with a love of photography and vegetarian cooking, working with her mother on a range of vegetarian cookbooks. She continues to consult on the Linda McCartney food brand. In 2009, Mary became a patron of Meat Free Mondays, to drive awareness on meat consumption and its impact on the climate. In 2012, Mary combined her photographic expertise with her lifelong love of vegetarian cooking to create her internationally acclaimed book FOOD: Vegetarian Home Cooking. Inspired by Mary's relaxed cooking style and her passion for fresh, flavourful and family-friendly recipes, FOOD captures the warmth and simplicity of vegetarian cooking and has lead to Mary's recipes being featured in Vogue, the Wall Street Journal, the Financial Times and Red Magazine as well as appearances on Good Morning America, The View and The One Show. At My Table is Mary's second cookbook.

At Mytable Vegetarian Feasts for Family and Friends

Author: Mary McCartney Format: Hardback Release Date: 14/05/2015

'I see this new cookbook as a personal journey, bringing to life the wonderful memories of those special occasions when family, friends and food mean everything. From celebrations and yearly highlights, to making the most of a simple gathering, I've created a complete range of vegetarian menus to make all these occasions special and, I hope, to create great memories.' There are moments in our lives, and throughout the year, when we come together with our friends and family - and food plays a huge part in turning these moments into something special. Traditionally, many of these occasions call for meat - whether it's roast beef for Sunday Lunch, or burgers at a BBQ - but Mary wants to show us that vegetarian cooking can be just as celebratory and special, and can adapt to any of our demands. She has created an inspiring and approachable selection of food for occasions that range from the festive feasts to the most intimate meal for two, all built around complete menu plans. Each menu has at least four recipes, and is designed to help us plan satisfying and delicious meat-free meals. Her Bonfire Party menu includes One Pot Chilli and Toffee Caramel Apple Wedges; her Middle-Eastern Feast includes Falafels and Nutty Baklava; and Kids Tea has Alphabet Soup and Mac 'n' Cheese.

The White Horse

The White Horse

Author: Mary McCartney, Simon Aboud Format: Hardback Release Date: 21/08/2018

In Mary McCartney s largest body of work to date she pays tribute to the extraordinary beauty of a white stallion, Alejandro. These portraits place the horse in the context of the rich, bucolic countryside of Sussex where McCartney grew up. Using a medium-format camera for formal portraits as well as 35mm and smartphone cameras for candid shots, she profiles equestrian life from on and off the saddle. These intimate pictures convey the special relationship between horse and rider and offer a profound insight into the connection that binds people to these majestic animals. The reader is taken through an ever-changing vista of lush green meadows, dappled forest trails, and nighttime forests, often using the unique perspective of rider on horseback to afford us the most compelling views. McCartney s knowledge of the landscape and her unique eye paint a loving and exquisite portrait of a horse and the equestrian lifestyle.

Mary McCartney Monochrome & Colour

Mary McCartney Monochrome & Colour

Author: Mary McCartney Format: Hardback Release Date: 01/12/2014

This is a highly personal selection of photographs amassed by Mary McCartney, oldest child of The Beatles singer Paul McCartney. As the title suggests, it's split into two volumes: one for color and one for black and white images. The book shows McCartney's love for quiet, intimate moments off the beaten track but it also gives an extraordinary behind-the-scenes insight into the lives of celebrities. I didn't put photos in for it to be a celebrity or non-celebrity, McCartney tells Time. I am interested in shooting all different types of people. I find a lot of people inspirational. I'm interested in people, in their stories.
