Hi.

Thanks for visiting.

This blog reflects my passionate interest in cooking, sharing and eating food that is prepared using plant-based ingredients.

I believe that vegan food will play an ever increasing part in the way we all eat in the future.

I live in a country where excessive consumption of meat has led to the cruel and barbaric industrialisation of animals, and this cannot be sustained.  Blood-lust is destroying the planet.  And it’s only in certain countries that vegan food is referred to as ‘vegan food’.  To most of the world, it’s just food.  Good food.  Ordinary food.  Healthy food. These are the recipes I’m searching for.  I also have a fascination for herbs and spices, which can bring the most mundane and ordinary of ingredients alive, and I’m loving discovering how spice and herb combinations have developed within different cultures.

On a practical note, I know that there are many people who would really like to become vegan, but they are so used to cooking with meat and dairy, they have no idea how to create a meal without those ingredients.  So, I have tried to keep many of my recipes simple, both in terms of ingredients and technical skill.

On a health note, please don’t be disturbed by those who say that meat is necessary for a healthy diet.  A well-balanced vegan diet that includes fruit, vegetables, seeds, nuts, pulses, legumes, grains, oils, herbs, spices and of course the occasional sweet treats, will provide everything your bodymind needs.

Most of the ingredients I use are readily available, and there are also posts in this blog which explore new and interesting ingredients, such as seaweed, tempeh, nutritional yeast, vegan cheeses …and much much more.

There’s already a huge amount of information available on the net investigate.  Since becoming vegan, my interest in providing good, healthy food has been completely revitalised.  It’s really not difficult.  All that has to be done, is make the break.

Food reaches out beyond language, beyond barriers and beyond boundaries.  In culinary cultures around the world, vegan is normal.

Thanks to globalisation, and of course, the internet, we have access to a myriad of tastes and flavours that before the 1950’s, was unheard of.

Looking to the future, I hope to develop recipes by adapting and innovating, to create endless recipes for peace.  Food for peace.  Peace to all beings.

In order to feel less helpless, I’m cooking for peace.

And I’m having some fun along the way….

Thanks for reading.
