The good news is that this means that more collaboration opportunities for those who can deliver on all fronts, await! S ..read more

    Potatoes are the ultimate comfort food! They are also so versatile and easy to make, plus potatoes are affordable and of course super delicious, I mean, what’s not to like?! These crispy smashed potatoes are especially comforting, combining a fluffy carb-y interior with a crispy and crunchy exterior, in short: pure BLISS! I served them with a wonderful creamy herby sauce that hints at Spring. In fact the sauce is Frankfurter Green Sauce, a regular from my teenage years living in Germany. The original sauce is not vegan, but it’s quite straight forward to veganise, as I did her ..read more

    After an intense and emotional Winter, I’m delighted that Spring vibes are finally in the air and let me tell you, I’m here for it all! You see, I love it when apple blossoms and tulips start popping up in my neighbourhood park and adore it even more when the air begins to feel lighter, crisper and full of hope!

ZA'ATAR ROASTED CARROTS WITH CHOPPED PISTACHIO RECIPE

    December is a funny one - there’s family and presents and festivities and gatherings, but there’s also introspection, melancholy, and deep seated emotions which always seem to poke their heads to the surface as the year comes to a close! This time around, rather than try and delve knee deep into all things merry, I’m quietly observing the pain and sadness that’s engulfed me, us, the world, these last few months. No matter where you sit politically, 2023 has been harrowing. Paradoxically, reflecting on the year that’s been, I wonder if maybe there is hope after all! You see, wit ..read more

    It’s been a tough few weeks folks! I don’t think I’ve cried as much since 2020 and seeing that that was the year that almost broke me, I’m sure you can imagine what I’m going through right now. In fact, you might not have to imagine because maybe you’re going through it too. It might even be that all that’s happening is hitting you much harder than it is me. Perhaps it’s hitting much closer to home. Either way, in the state I found myself in these last few weeks, picking up my camera and posting a reel about growing your audience online was the last thing I wanted to do. It fel ..read more
