Cool Food – Want to save the planet? Join Iron Man!

Join real-life superhero Robert Downey Jr. on his mission to change what we eat!

The Vegetarian Society and its cookery school are pleased to have contributed to this new book by Thomas Kostigen and Robert Downey Jr.

In his first major nonfiction book, COOL FOOD: Erasing Your Carbon Footprint One Bite at a Time (Blackstone Publishing), the celebrated actor and philanthropist Robert Downey Jr has teamed up with New York Times bestselling author Thomas Kostigen to deliver a practical and easily digestible guide to fighting climate change through an enjoyable activity that unifies us all: food. 

We are super excited for Cool Food as the head of our cookery school Sam Linford-Platt is interviewed in the book and we supplied some of the delicious recipes. The book is available online and is aimed at people having more plant-based meals and reducing their meat intake for the planet. Keep a look out later this year for an interview with authors.

COOL FOOD has a fresh look and reveals how changing our individual grocery shopping, meal planning, and everyday eating habits can make a world of difference in creating a better world for everyone.
