This little book is not so much about health as about morality. The author passionately urges us to recognize and accept that meat-eating is wrong; that killing animals for food is wrong; that animals deserve our consideration as living beings; that the raising of animals for slaughter is damaging to our environment, and consequently also morally wrong as we are stewards of our environment. Furthermore, the social cost of eating meat is high as our global resources are squandered by making wrong communal and personal choices about what we eat.

This is a new revision of the 2nd edition of Vegetarian Nosh for Students. This edition has a new layout, new photography and includes 30% more recipes than the first edition. Originally a sequel to Nosh for Students, a book inspired by the author's son, Ben, leaving for university, who was clueless in the kitchen. Toasted sandwiches and Mars Bars were his staple diet, but these didn't serve him too well! What was needed to encourage him to cook was an easily attainable taste of home, oh, and pictures with every recipe! Nosh for Students was born. Since then, Joy has helped over 150,000 students get cooking with her straightforward and simple approach. Joy helps to take the chore out of cooking, giving students a taste of success and making the experience so much fun. Voted Best Overall Winner of vegetarian student cookbooks by student-testers at The Vegetarian Society, August 2007. Vegetarian Society Approved.
