Book review: BOSH!

BOSH! Simple Recipes; Amazing Food; All Plants by Henry Firth & Ian Theasby. HQ, hbk, 288pp, £20.

There are now so many excellent vegan cookbooks available that it can feel difficult to distinguish between them, but this one really does stand out and is highly recommended. The recipes are all based on the videos available via the BOSH! website ( and You Tube. The videos are short but (using a speeded-up technique) show a specific dish being created from start to finish in a matter of minutes (the Portobello Mushroom Wellington is completed in just one minute and 20 seconds). BOSH! represents the modern ‘make it quick and make it easy’ mindset of an impatient generation addicted to their phones and iPads. However, the BOSH! videos are entertaining, very slick and informative, and it’s pleasing to see that the online success of BOSH! has culminated in an old fashioned printed book. The book available in e-book or printed format, heavily discounted, from that Behemoth online store whose name that I just can’t remember.
