Who's Martha?

Martha Goes Green is a cookbook full of yummy vegetarian recipes independently published by a group of friends who live in Melbourne. It's a cute wee thing (about the size of the Edmonds cookbook), full of deliciousness, and it comes in its own fairtrade organic cotton bag. Rosie, Ruth and Jessica were interviewed for Issue 2, and photographed by the talented Olga Bennet.

One of the questions I asked them was 'Who's Martha?' - I was curious about how they came up with the title. They said, 'We get asked this all the time! Our friend Hazel came up with the name. In a way it references the cooking show queen Martha Stewart, but also the home cook who wants to serve easy tasty food, but is concerned of the effect our diet has on the world around us. So I guess you could say “Martha Goes Green” is all about delicious, familiar and accessible cooking with an eco conscious edge. Oh and we think it’s a pretty cute name!'

So there you go.

If that sounds like what you're into, don't forget to enter the Martha Goes Green cookbook giveaway before the competition closes at the end of the month - details are inside the magazine.
