Written by Vegan Chef Day Radley, Bo’s Book is a new cookbook written in partnership with animal welfare charity, Miracle’s Mission.

Miracle’s Mission is a non-profit animal welfare organisation that works with sick, injured and difficult animals. Its mission is to provide a place of safety for animals in danger, to educate on the need for neutering both pets and strays and to neuter stray dogs and cats to prevent the birth of more dogs and cats onto the streets.

Miracle was a dog who was rescued from the streets of Borneo at one-week old before her tiny eyes were even open. She had several injuries and was very weak, but she made a miraculous recovery and is now strong, happy and healthy living with her adopted brother Ben, and sisters Star and Tess. Miracle’s Mission is now working towards saving many more stray dogs and other stray animals all around the world, starting in Borneo where Miracle was rescued.

The charity is currently looking for help to build the UK’s first centre for disabled animals, where the founder of Miracle’s Mission, Victoria Bryceson and her team can rehabilitate the most vulnerable, before finding them their forever homes. 

Enter, Bo’s Book which has pledged to donate all of the profits to support the appeal.

Featuring recipes for every occasion, there are suggestions for savoury snacks, easy dinners and weekenders such as Roti with Spiced Cauliflower, holiday dishes, indulgent sweet treats such as Chocolate Fudge Cake and delicious desserts such as Banana Sticky Toffee Pudding.

In between the recipes, you can read about some of the vulnerable dogs that Miracle’s Mission has helped.

Vegan Chef Day Radley is founder and director of The Vegan Chef School, a community-based start-up London school that has a radically progressive mission – to move forward veganism, sustainability and compassionate ways of being through communication, learning, research and development.

Bo’s Book is £20 and available from
