Recipe Testing: The Lotus and the Artichoke Ethiopia

Recipe Testing: The Lotus and the Artichoke Ethiopia

What a month September has been! Right back at the beginning I leapt at the chance to be a recipe tester for the new The Lotus and the Artichoke cookbook – ETHIOPIA. I have tried making Ethiopian food before but have not had much luck […]

Vegan Vibes, Greenwich

If you’re local to Greenwich then you’ll know that the indoor market (which dates back to 1737) has been pretty vegan-friendly of late (as all of 2018 in general – yay!). Therefore it made total sense for the next vegan night market – Vegan Vibes (hosted […]

Veganuary

Veganuary

Well, we are already a week and a bit into February but I think a roundup of (probably the most successful ever) Veganuary is definitely required. ‘Intense’ is definitely the word that springs to mind when I think back on the whirlwind that was last month. Veganism […]
