My name is Jonathan Vine, and I was caught up in the vegetarian lifestyle a few years back. I have to say that giving up on meat did not strike me in a single moment, nor was it a swift decision, but an inner journey that evolved within a few months. Eventually, I took a final decision that the suffering of animals is my grief and my motivation.

Book Description: The book is essentially a diet guide intended for night shift workers. I created my own diet as I was fed up of diets that didn’t work for me and weren’t tailored to my nightshift work. It’s a simple, easy to follow book that tracks my dieting journey.
Author’s Inspiration: I was sick and tired of yo-yoing from one diet to the next. It seemed that every diet I went on wasn’t suited to my lifestyle so I eventually decided to do some research and create a diet specifically designed for night shift workers. When I lost 54 lbs in 60 days and helped other lose weight, it was suggested I write a book to help others in a similar position. So that’s what inspired me to write it.
Not so long ago I was morbidly obese, unhappy and living a sedentary lifestyle. It was only on a night out, when I got deeply embarrassed by a bet that enough was enough. I decided that after years of yo-yo dieting that it was time to create my own diet specifically tailored for the night shift. So after months of research, I created my own diet. I was apprehensive at first but I stuck to it and was pleasantly surprised when I lost 54 lbs in 60 days. Since then I have managed to keep the weight off and helped other do the same too. In fact it was one of my work colleagues that told me to write a book on my experiences. So that is what spurred me on to write the book. I want to help as many people as I can not only lose weight, but keep it off too.

My mother always says that there are two kinds of people in the world: Those who eat to live and those who live to eat. I am the latter. This would explain why my most favorite holidays in the calendar are Christmas, Thanksgiving, Easter, St. Patrick’s Day. They are foodie celebrations. Yes, they have significant cultural / religious importance, but the bulk of the actual celebrating is often around a family table with food and drink and laughter flowing freely.
My favorite part of celebrating St. Patrick’s Day is the baking and preparations that lead up to the day. The eating is wonderful of course, but preparing the bread to be broken and the stews to be spooned and the whisky to be poured for loved ones is the true joy in the day. I’m somewhat adventurous in the kitchen, so I often try new things to bring variety to the table, but there are certainly staples that are present every year. Some are indulgent and some are traditional, but all combined make the celebration complete.
My favorite “Irish” recipe isn’t Irish at all, but, rather, Irish-inspired. Irish Car Bomb Brownies. Mmmmmmm … Honestly, the only thing Irish about it is the alcohol that goes into it (Guinness, Baileys, and whisky), but these brownies are so delicious that even the most critical Irish palate will approve. I stumbled upon this recipe a few years back on A Spicy Perspective’s blog, and they were an overwhelmingly huge hit! They are definitely ADULT brownies, so you may need to whip up a batch of out-of-the-box brownies to make the kiddos happy as well. But, a word to the wise: Eat in moderation. They pack a sneaky little punch!
Another favorite “Irish” recipe is my momma’s shepherd’s pie. (The exact heritage of this dish is often debated. Some say English, some say Irish. And, while they are distinctly different cultures, they do share some characteristics. I’m sticking with Irish since that’s what I grew up thinking.) Growing up, we ate this all the time, especially in the winter. It’s a meal-in-a-dish, and it’s inexpensive. Life in a family of five is often lived on a budget (ours certainly was!), and potatoes, meat, and corn make a pretty inexpensive meal. Now, as a grown woman, I love the flavor memories that this simple meal brings back to me. I’ve changed the recipe ever-so-slightly, but it still has the same delicious and hearty flavor.
Recipe: Momma’s Shepherd’s Pie
1 1/2 lbs ground beef (I’ve also used ground buffalo, and it was delicious!)
Peel and quarter potatoes, boil in salted water until tender (about 20 minutes).
While the potatoes are cooking, melt 4 Tablespoons butter (1/2 a stick) in large frying pan.
Sauté onions in butter until tender over medium heat (10 mins).
Add ground beef and sauté until no longer pink. Add Worcestershire sauce. Optional: Add salt and pepper. Add half a cup of beef broth and cook, uncovered, over low heat for 10 minutes, adding more beef broth as necessary to keep moist.
Cook frozen vegetables in the microwave or on the stovetop in a separate pan from the meat. Remove from heat when almost done. (You can use fresh veggies here, but the frozen mix is so easy!)
Mash potatoes in bowl with remainder of butter, season to taste.
Place vegetables on the bottom of a baking dish. Add the beef and onions. Do not mix. Spread mashed potatoes on top. Rough up with a fork so that there are peaks that will brown nicely. You can use the fork to make some designs in the potatoes as well.
Cook in 400 degree oven until bubbling and brown (about 30 minutes). Broil for last few minutes if necessary to brown.
My mouth is already watering at the thought of enjoying my St. Patrick’s Day dinner … and dessert!
Beannachtaí na Féile Pádraig oraibh! (St. Patrick’s Day blessings on you!)
(Want to impress your friends with that Gaelic blessing? Pronounce it this way: Ban-ick-tee na fay-lah pwad-rig or-iv)

Born in Vienna the author moved first to Paris for works and studies, worked in Ivory Coast and Thailand and lives in Italy since more than twenty years. Her job in the international hotel-business means travelling all over the year and seems to be the logic consequence of growing in a diplomatic family. There is no need to explain that she started cooking all the dishes she tried, first of all in Sicily, where she brought up her children. “To live in a Sicilian family of gastronomes means learning by doing.”, she says. Writing becomes continuously more important for the author of novels, a Sicilian travel guide and cookbooks. She writes in Italian as well as German, “Mediterranean & Vegetarian” is her first book in English
