Mary McCartney has a not so vegetarian earlier memory of eating snails in France with the family.

Thankfully, that moment was replaced by many more with her mother in the kitchen preparing plant-based meals like vegetable soup.

“I’d watch her make a cream of tomato soup, when the tomatoes were at their plumpest,” she told The Independent.

“She’d add onions and mushrooms and blend them all together into this gorgeous hearty soup. I can still remember the beautiful smells.”

Mary McCartney has published a vegetarian cookbook filled with recipes inspired by her mother’s cooking and tales of food memories she formed in the famous McCartney household.

“Growing up in a vegetarian family and having Mum at the helm in the kitchen, encouraging us all to muck in, was the best education I could have asked for,” writes Mary at Food and Drink. “Over the years I have continued to cook as my mum did, experimenting with ingredients, flavours and textures.”

One of the recipes in Food is for a hummus sandwich with chilli jam.

“Subjecting animals to pain and suffering just so that we can produce a new shade of lipstick or eye-shadow is simply cruel and unnecessary in this day and age. EU politicians promised to ban the sale of cruelly-tested cosmetics by 2013 and I sincerely believe they should honour that ethical pledge.”

Mary McCartney, on the European Union delay to ban the sale of animal tested cosmetics. Although animal testing was outlawed in both the UK and Europe, products that contain animal tested ingredients are still being sold. A ban on such products has been delayed several times over the past few years, and officials are still considering delaying the new 2013 deadline.
