Smoked garlic and sweet potato cheesecake (vegan | gluten-free)

It's that time of year where we're heeded to get out the wooden stakes and vampire repellant and this little knuckle of a shoot sure throws a good punch. The garlic's strong flavour and aroma characteristics somewhat resemble that of its older sister, the stout and sturdy onion, both as stinky as each other! When… Continue reading Smoked garlic and sweet potato cheesecake (vegan | gluten-free)

Chocolate hazelnut tartlet with preserved fruits, rose chantilly, pistachio praline and basil flowers

If I’m being honest, today I’m hungover as fuck and not a single sentence that’s going through my head right now is worth sticking in here. However, I can give you a vague update of my night of drunken shenanigans (which isn’t so entertaining either!), but it does actually involve the tart so I guess… Continue reading Chocolate hazelnut tartlet with preserved fruits, rose chantilly, pistachio praline and basil flowers

Noodle donut with crispy tofu and red onion marmalade (vegan)

In a world with no bread, how on earth can one expect to create a sandwich? Ok well claiming that there’s no bread in the small Chinese city where I’m currently located is a slight exaggeration- there is bread...the sweet, white, vanilla kind, but then that’s about it. You could buy a loaf twice the… Continue reading Noodle donut with crispy tofu and red onion marmalade (vegan)

Sweet potato toasties (vegan | gluten-free)

Typical English pub-grub, beer-guzzling-man, football-watching, finger food. Well no more will this style of potato fit only into only this category (yes, I consider the above one genre).  It is time for fully loaded potato skins to spread their wings and reach all us other non-male, teetotal, health-aware, sports-hating, messy eaters out there. I’m not… Continue reading Sweet potato toasties (vegan | gluten-free)
