Meat Free Monday One day a week can make a world of difference

Mary McCartney ‘serves it up’ in brand new cooking show

Meat Free Monday co-founder hosts Discovery+ cooking series with talented friends

Posted : 4 February 2021

Launching today, Mary McCartney invites audiences into her London kitchen as she prepares delicious, accessible, and picture-perfect meals with her friends on the Discovery+ series Mary McCartney Serves It Up.

In each of the six half-hour episodes, Mary shares her love of cooking, her accessible vegetarian food philosophy and her favourite recipes and the stories behind them. Mary is joined by some talented and well-known faces, at home and over video conference, to celebrate food and friendship – with transatlantic cook-alongs, taste-tests, cocktail classes and fun food Q&As. From easy dinners to comforting eats, moreish main meals and delicious desserts, Mary proves that every day and every occasion can be deliciously meat free.

“I’m honoured to be launching my new show on Discovery’s amazing new streaming service. With the help of a few friends, I want to show that meat free eating can be varied, delicious and accessible to everyone,” said Mary McCartney. “The recipes are simple, easy and rewarding. I can’t wait for you to be able to join me and my super talented guests for food and fun.”

From ‘Maple Vodka Grilled Peaches’ with Kate Hudson, ‘Meatless Marinara Sub Sandwiches’ with Mark Ronson, and ‘Deluxe Hash Brown Skillet’ piled high with spicy beans and delicious fixings for brunch with Cameron Diaz and Nicole Richie, each episode includes good food and great conversation. Other highlights include Liv Tyler becoming Mary’s official nachos taste tester, Dave Grohl teaching Mary the secret to his legendary lasagna and Mary arranging a food delivery of ‘Sticky Crispy Cauliflower Bites’, ‘Pea & Mint Dip’, and ‘Roasted Tomato & Butterbean Toasts’ for a virtual party with Gayle King, who famously doesn’t cook.

All unused food during the filming of Serves It Up was sent to City Harvest, a London-based charity which Mary supports, where nutritious surplus food is passed on to organisations that provide meals to vulnerable people including homeless shelters, children’s programmes and refuges for women experiencing domestic violence.
