I voted for No. 1 but agree with the above poster that there’s no reason to offend/scare off vegetarians. No. 2 is even worse in this regard; it says your book is aimed at white people. Avoid using non inclusive images.
While both pictures are very nice, at first glance the one with the dishes of food made me think of a cookbook. Which I'm guessing it will partly be - but it would be a shame to discourage the vegetarian/vegan sector from even picking it up (and not purchasing!). Plus, with the current state of the world, people are craving a sense of community, which is immediately reflected in the second pic.
