I often bake Parkin in the autumn/winter time and this time I fancied putting my own spin on it and wanted to share the results with you.

I didn’t even know where Chingford was until a few weeks ago. A job came up at short notice, so I looked into my travel options and did a quick google search for ‘vegan Chingford’ and The Feel Good Cafe popped up.
A while ago I discovered there was a Victorian pub in Nottingham with an entirely vegan kitchen. Since then I’ve had this pub on my list of places to visit, and last week I finally had the opportunity to do so. I was not disappointed.
There’s a new food stall that’s recently appeared on Leather Lane in London, known as Killer Tomato, and it’s great. I urge you to go and visit if you get the chance. All the food is vegetarian, and there are some really good vegan options too. The stall is owned and run by Matt who […]
I have made some great new vegan discoveries these past few weeks. I am a very excited vegan at the moment! Most discoveries have made their way into my kitchen and turned into naughty treats. If you follow me on twitter you will know what I am talking about. Read on if you want to hear about liquid chocolate, cruelty free marshmallows, and ‘to go’ lunches now available in supermarkets. Of course it’s all vegan – just like everything from Vx is vegan – it goes without saying!
It can be ever so frustrating as a Vegan to find a quick lunch. It is not as simple as just popping to Tesco or Boots and picking up a salad, sandwich or wrap. So I want to share with you the art of Vegan Packed Lunches!
This is part two of my experiment to create a Vegan alternative to the classic Crunchie bar. In my previous blog entry I told you how I accidentally made a very chewy caramel to start with then I returned it to the pan and added far too much bicarbonate of soda, although my result wasn’t miles away from honeycomb, it wasn’t quite right and I wanted to re-create a bar, not shards. So this is how part two of the experiment goes…
There are many Vegan alternative chocolate bars available these days. Go Max Go Foods have a fantastic selection, they have their own Vegan take on Mars bar, Snickers, Milky way, Bounty, Crunch and Peanut Butter Cups – but no Crunchie bar alternative, so I’ve set myself a challenge to make my own Vegan version of a Crunchie bar, read on to see how the experiment goes.
Next Sunday is Easter Sunday. For most this means eating lots of chocolates, for some it’s a special religious event and for me its all about bouncing bunnies, baby chicks and lambs – new life, deserving freedom and respect, not confinement and ending up on a dinner table. This is why I’m Vegan, I love and respect animals, they have rights just as we do. On Sunday the closest thing to baby animals on our table will be Home-made Vegan chocolates using Lakeland silicone chocolate mould.
I love Indian food, the spices, the veggies, the side orders. We often go to Sagar Vegetarian Restaurant in the west end, they have a separate Vegan menu which is full of choice, I don’t think I ever have the same meal twice. The only thing we miss is Naan bread, which traditionally contains ghee, (Indian butter) which of course is not suitable for Vegans…
