Loves is back! A summary of things I have been loving recently:
♥ Yum Bun. After trying them for the first time at Giant Robot in Canary Wharf, I sought them out in Spitalfields Market. Currently their crispy tofu bao is the only veganisable option they have but I’m praying hard that that will change.
♥ Quorn. The chicken and smokey ham slices are finally in Sainsbury’s.
♥ Biff’s Jerk Shack. Nothing better than seeing a solid queue for vegan burgers in The City of London.
♥ Native Unearthed. I had a bit of a clear out of the bathroom cupboard recently and discovered a graveyard of half-used deodorants. I have never managed to find The One, but I recently purchased Native Unearthed and it seems to be doing the trick. I am also happy that it’s natural enough for my 9 year old to use (yes the hormones are kicking in and it makes me want to cry 😥 ) and got a lot of good feedback about them on Instagram.
♥ Bombay Central. They have a seperate vegan menu, I tried a few things – chilli tofu, veg Manchurian and chilli mogo. They did all taste a bit samey so wouldn’t get that combination again but TOFU at an Indian restaurant!!
♥ Manna. I always visit at least once a year but didn’t make it at all during 2017 *sad face*. This year already got one under the belt, fingers crossed will sneak in a couple more.
♥ Pomo. This is a while back now but I was very lucky to receive some homemade croissants from Sara. They were dreamy and I miss them.
♥ Baking. After not really having any time to fit it in, I’ve started making time to bake again. And now realise just how much I’ve missed it and experimenting. This year I have joined in the Bake for Good initiative at work (employees bake at the weekend and the cakes are taken to shelters and charities on Monday morning), made 2 birthday cakes and perfected a caramel bundt recipe which has now been added to the baking section. More on playing around with homemade food colourings in an upcoming blog.
