Pea Pesto with Pistachio Parmesan (vegan | gluten-free)

I have never met anybody in my life that dislikes pesto. I even did a little survey to see if friends of friends had any friends who hated the green stuff! Boiled down to just one person whose reason for disliking pesto was his hatred towards cheese, so I guess it doesn’t really count. So… Continue reading Pea Pesto with Pistachio Parmesan (vegan | gluten-free)

Smoky Tofu Steak with Sticky Cola Sauce (vegan | gluten-free)

Tofu steak? Yes, it might appear deceptive, especially to the carnivores out there, and for that I apologise. I know how you feel…it was like the time I was in NYC and ordered cauliflower steak- I was under the impression that I would receive a fat juicy steak accompanied by some potentially meek and mild… Continue reading Smoky Tofu Steak with Sticky Cola Sauce (vegan | gluten-free)

1-step Congee (vegan +fat-free + gluten-free)

Now there aren’t many foods in this world that I take a sheer disliking to, but if you’d asked me last year for my opinion on congee (Asian rice porridge) it would definitely be difficult to hide my hatred for this dish. I know hate is such a strong word, but I think my initial… Continue reading 1-step Congee (vegan +fat-free + gluten-free)

Buckwheat galettes with cheesy mushrooms (vegan + gluten-free)

Of course it had to be the French that gave the humble pancake a sexy name, but I guess that’s just the French language in general. A galette basically refers to a buckwheat pancake that is often accompanied by a savoury filling/topping. It’s ridiculously easy to make so I thought I’d give it a shot.… Continue reading Buckwheat galettes with cheesy mushrooms (vegan + gluten-free)

Magic mushroom risotto trail (vegan + gluten-free)

If you’re looking for some anti-age magic, the Chinese believe that these mushrooms have what it takes to prevent premature ageing. All food seems to have a function here and mushrooms are up there on the list of wonder foods. I’ve made a temporary move from London to China and just experiencing life Asian style.… Continue reading Magic mushroom risotto trail (vegan + gluten-free)

Cabbage dinner plate- Chai spiced consommé, Pickle gel, Charred leaves with edamame puree, Tempura and Bubble and squeak (vegan +gluten-free)

What do you call a cabbage that’s in love?.....HEAD over heels. Ok, terrible dad joke, but it’s the only thing I found online when I was looking for inspiration to make cabbages sound appealing. I think my attempt to illicit some cruciferous-related laughter has certainly been unsuccessful, but that’s because there really is nothing fun… Continue reading Cabbage dinner plate- Chai spiced consommé, Pickle gel, Charred leaves with edamame puree, Tempura and Bubble and squeak (vegan +gluten-free)

Curry Calzone with Chilli Cheese (vegan)

Apparently, word on the street is that some Queen of Herpes told a bunch of hardknock hunky Trojans to eat their tables in order to find peace. Dinner time approached and they were not eager in the least, despite their lack of food, expecting these wooden tables. However, they were pleasantly greeted with bread –… Continue reading Curry Calzone with Chilli Cheese (vegan)

Tartlets- the food equivalent to babies (vegan)

I would first like to reiterate that pastry really is a motherfucker. Making it is simply kitchen torture. I know the pastry do-gooders in this world will beg to differ with that statement, but they’re specialists, and to be frank, I am not! There was not a single point in this process that I looked… Continue reading Tartlets- the food equivalent to babies (vegan)
