About this deal

Moore is the real thing: a proper eater and true cook with real flair for flavour; her recipes, along with her writing about them, are a-brim with such gleeful generosity, fusing the ingredients and traditions of Jamaica with foods of other cultures with Ottolenghi-like brio but entirely authentic to Moore’s own identity and appetite.

Denai is a Jamaican chef who loves to make vegan food and in Plentiful she debunks this taboo about Jamaican food. Denai's pop-up, Dee’s Table, has received a lot of praise from the Metro , Vice , Dojo , and was featured on Jamie Oliver’s television series Jamie's Meat-Free Meals . Jamaican food is often misrepresented, simplified and reduced to being really spicy – and MEAT heavy. An incredibly exciting, fresh modern twist on authentic flavours I love with bold clever and creative plays on veg! Denai is a Jamaican chef who loves to make vegan food and in ¬† Plentiful ¬†she debunks this taboo about Jamaican food.

Dee's Table was nominated for the prestigious YBF awards in 2019 and made her cooking TV debut on Jamie Oliver’s 2019 channel 4 show ‘VEG’. This book is for everyone whether you are familiar with Jamaican food or vegan cooking or not - lots to keep you interested and well fed. In this first-of-its-kind book, Denai Moore pays homage to flavours and authentic dishes from her Jamaican roots whilst firmly planting them within a modern-day context. This book is full of interesting, creative yet easily achievable recipes which bring something you’ve not eaten before to your table. My copy of Plentiful is so a-flutter with post-it notes that I don’t know how to constrain myself to a select few here, but I’ll do my best.

To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Jamaican food is often misrepresented, simplifed and reduced to being really spicy ‚Äì and MEAT heavy. As a recipe developer, Denai has written for the Guardian , and has held cooking demonstrations for Time Out . It was so hard to decide which of all the recipes in this wonderful book to share with you today, but inspired by my love of the Thai version, Yum Khao Tod (I go regularly to Supawan Thai in King’s Cross for its divine iteration of it) I plumped happily for her Crispy Rice Salad with Crunchy Green Vegetables and Salted Cashews.

At the start of 2020, Denai collaborated with trusted Burger Joint ‘Honest Burger’, creating a Jamaican inspired vegan burger, featuring her Apricot Scotch Bonnet Ketchup. I just HAVE to read the entire book before I can decide which one of these delectable dishes I will make.
