“This is a recipe I developed from the classic ribollita, the ultimate Italian Peasant food. I wanted to create something even more nutritious and a little more elegant than the hearty, lumpy Tuscan bean stew. Don’t get me wrong, this is still a rustic meal, but by taking your time and liberally using a really great olive oil you can make one of the most delicious things you eat this year.”

Richard is chef-proprietor of Acorn Vegetarian Kitchen in Bath. One of only 2 plant-based restaurants in the UK to be listed in both the 2018 Michelin Guide and The Good Food Guide.

Richard was raised a vegetarian and, after graduating with a 1:1 degree in English Literature, he set about studying vegetable cookery whilst working in a series of top vegetarian restaurants. This culminated in his five-year role as head chef for Demuth’s Restaurant where he developed and refined his plant-centric, cooking style.
