Launch event slated for new vegetarian cookbook

A new recipe book on vegetarian cooking will be launched in Abbotsford on Thursday, Aug. 20.

The launch event for Vegetarian Comfort Foods runs from 6 to 9 p.m. at Wildflower Artisan Collective, 33821 South Fraser Way.

Author Jennifer Browne of Abbotsford will be in attendance.

All of the photos were taken by Tanya Loewen, also of Abbotsford.

The book was published by Skyhorse Publishing of New York.

Browne, who has had a decade-long struggle with irritable bowel syndrome, wrote the book to couple the healing power of whole plant-based foods with creative recipes to please the palate.

Browne completed her bachelor of arts in English literature at the University of the Fraser Valley and has a certificate in plant-based nutrition from the T. Colin Campbell Centre for Nutrition Studies.

Her first book with Skyhorse Publishing was Happy Healthy Gut, and she has two more being released next year.
