BOSH: Simple Recipes. Amazing Food. All Plants!

A little over a month ago I had the opportunity to meet the men behind the world of BOSH, Henry Firth and Ian Theasby. You may have already heard of their YouTube channel BOSH.TV, where they introduce their audience to the culinary delights of plant-based food and cooking.

Ian and Henry are both articulate, approachable and intelligent young men, they engage their audience with sincerity and a great passion for plant-based food. They both have a quick witted sense of humour and are incredibly charming.

About Henry Firth and Ian Theasby of BOSH
If you’d told us three years ago we were going to spend our lives cooking and eating amazing plant-based food, we wouldn’t have believed you. We were a couple of mates from Sheffield who ate meat every single week.

Now we run BOSH!, the biggest plant-based online channel in the world. Our food creations were viewed by half a billion people in our first year and our most popular recipe videos have been viewed over 50 million times. We never expected to have that kind of success, and it has been humbling.

‘I was the one to first cut out animal products.’

‘I mocked Ian when he went vegan, and asked him where he’d get his protein from. But eventually he won me over. That and the whole saving the world by not eating mass-produced animal products thing.’

After cutting out animal products entirely, both of us felt fantastic. But we had to re-learn how to cook and find food when we were out and about. We also found that the vegan food available in restaurants or in cookbooks was often, frankly, not very good.

Since then, it’s been our life’s mission to show people how to make delicious plant-based meals. However often they choose to do that. We cook, drink and film delicious recipes for the world, all from our home studio in East London.

Review of BOSH: Simple Recipes. Amazing Food. All Plants!
The way people are approaching food, cooking, eating and nutrition in general is changing. A lot of them are looking for alternatives, be it because of ethical, medical, religious or just plain old I want something else for myself reasons. Plant-based meals have become a real alternative.

You can almost see the old barriers between vegan and meat activists crumbling, as plant-based cooking changes from a fad and an en vogue rebellion, to a lifestyle choice. Innovative cooks like Firth and Theasby want you to discover the pleasure, the flavour, the choices and ultimately to realise that this isn't the so-called rabbit food it has been falsely labelled as.

I had the pleasure of meeting Ian and Henry. They are articulate, approachable and intelligent young men, they engage their audience with sincerity and a great passion for plant-based food. They both have a quick witted sense of humour and are incredibly charming.

Now, it is important to note that I am a meat eater and one of the staunch steak-lovers they talk of. I have never been a fan of vegetables, however the two of them managed to lure me over to the dark side. You know, where the scary plants live.

They managed to do that because they want you to want to eat something you will enjoy, as opposed to eating it because it is the healthier option. They offer recipes for snacks, party drinks (omg the watermelon punch), desserts (I just don't agree with the sharing aspect of the tear and share chocolate croissant, just saying), starters and main meals.

Some of the recipes are so out of my vegetable comfort zone, that I wonder if the two of them just sit there and brainstorm with perfectly innocent plants just looking on in silent terror. 'Come here little cauliflower let me batter you in paprika, garlic and toss you in breadcrumbs.'

If you are looking for simple recipes, and yes they are super-easy to read and follow, amazing food, and for a plant-based food and taste-bud extravaganza, then BOSH Cookbook is the book for you.

Buy BOSH at Amazon Uk or go to Goodreads for any other retailer.
