I live in by the sea in England, growing up my mum was a chef and my dad a baker. All my happy memories growing up seem to be food related, I always cooked with my mum and my dad, helping out in kitchens with my mum and making bread with my dad but never really explored cooking by myself till i became vegan (about 4 years ago). Going vegan just seemed to make such sense to me, I far as I could see if you could eat tasty, healthy and nutritious food, all the time without harming any animal, then why wouldn’t you? So thus began an almost religious need to cook vegetables in tasty ways. Bring on the kale and embrace tofu I say! …..oh also I should probz let you know that I am a boy, cause the internet seems to think imma lady…. silly internet… you need to calm down…..

  2. wow… you are the first vegan I ever met! I hardly consume meat, unless if you consider fish as meat and egg as part of meat :D. and I am lactose intolerant (small amount is fine). Will follow your blog to enrich my food list, especially the cookies. Yuuuum….

  4. Whoa. I am not a vegan and am 100% certain I could not convince my husband or step-daughter to become one (or two), but I am TOTALLY following this blog. These recipes look AMAZING.

    Also. Thanks for visiting my blog. I’m glad you enjoyed it. Please come again!

  5. Hey, I just discovered your blog and love it so I started following you! I’ve been vegan for almost a year now and am still growing into my plant-based cooking skills. I’m always on the lookout for simple vegan dishes. So, if you can think of any especially easy-to-make dishes on your blog, please direct me to them. Thanks! Celeste

  6. Hi Alex! You know, I am so inspired by guys who choose to become vegan. I am sort of… hm, 80% vegan…? I’d completely make the change if not for my husband and his friends, the latter of whom tease the hell out of anyone who doesn’t eat meat (his best mate is Argentinean and probably eats a 60% meat 40% carb diet!). I’ve adapted our diet a lot over the past two years… we probably eat at least three meat-free meals per week, but I’d never tell my husband’s friends that! There seems to be a lot of societal pressure for men to eat meat, whether they want to or not, as part of being ‘masculine’. I think it’s annoying. And stupid. Anyway, what I’m trying to say is that you’re awesome. Love the wallpaper too (did you draw it?). I’ll be following you from now on and can’t wait to read through some of your recipes!

  7. Hi, I’m doing work experience at a magazine at the moment, and they’ve asked me to work on a blog section (I’ve been featured before, you can check it out on my press page), was just wondering if you might be interested in one of your recipes being featured? You’d just need to email me a photo of you, and a recipe you’d like to use – the most recent one with the courgette looks really nice πŸ™‚ let me know x

  8. Wow I love this blog! I’m excited to have a proper look through the recipes when I have some more time but my lil ol’ brain’s already scheming up dinner tonight from what I’ve seen πŸ˜€ Thanks πŸ™‚

  9. Dude, you have yourself a follower!
    You had me at beer cake.
    The recipes look great, man, keep it up! πŸ™‚ (everything you make looks like it stepped out of a magazine?! It all looks so pro! Congrats πŸ˜€ )

  10. I embarrassingly admit I was one who thought you were a lady! My apologies… You have some great fans who courteously let me know my mistake. I love your blog, love that your a male,and will continue to spread word about all your amazing recipes!

  11. Hi! I just happened to stumble upon your blog, and I have to say – it’s terrific! I love your photos and all the Christmas appetizer ideas you have going on right now. I look forward to seeing what else you come up with!
