I love cooking a variety of styles, sometimes just 5 minutes throwing together ideas, sometimes a longer, more calculated affair. I’m learning as I go along, and this blog will be a record of my successes.
I’m a great believer in modifying recipes to suits one’s own tastes, or to use up what’s in the fridge, so I won’t be attempting to recreate “authentic” dishes here. All traditions were new ideas at one time.
If I give measurements in any of the recipes, it will be metric, approximate or no measurement at all! I’m based in the UK so British English will be used (in case you are reading this and have been confused by my spellings of words like “colour”).
No animals were harmed in the making of these meals, to the best of my knowledge. Yes, that means I am the big V, but don’t let that put you off – save the saturated fats and try it. Animal-free diets worked for the gladiators of the Roman era, and I wouldn’t want to mess with one of them!
Please leave a comment under any of the creations that take your fancy, and hopefully you’ll be impressed that it was done without any animal products: Impressive plant-based, vegan food.
