My family of four consists of two vegetarians and two carnivores. As a busy but conscientious mum, juggling family and career, I searched high and low for a book that would show me how to adapt our favourite family recipes to provide a meat and a vegetarian version of the same meal, without having to trawl around specialist health food shops or cook two separate dishes each day. I couldn't find the book I needed so I decided to write one. AUTHOR BIOG: Sharon Buthlay is a busy mum, author, property lawyer and Director of a legal marketing services company. She and her teenage daughter are vegetarians, whilst her husband and teenage son still enjoy eating meat and fish. Having come from a very large family, their get-togethers tended to be huge affairs. As Sharon enjoyed cooking from an early age, her interest in catering began by producing meals and buffets for many joyful family occasions. She has also run her own sandwich bar and outside catering company providing catering services and healthy food options for other busy working persons. She is based in Risby, Suffolk.
