It's all about making veggies the star of the show, and this dish does exactly that; everything you'd want from a schnitzel, it delivers. And then some. I've never before experienced such a texture - the flaked almonds make it uniquely crisp and the aubergine is notably not over-cooked so it's the perfect amount of … Continue reading Aubergine Schnitzel @ The Gate
Dishoom - the chain paying homage to the Irani cafés that were once part of the fabric of life in Bombay - has a vegan brunch, lunch & dinner menu packed full of dishes worth writing home about - I absolutely love their vegan sausages for brunch, and their chickpea curries are divine. But their showstopper … Continue reading Bhel & samosas @ Dishoom
I like my broccoli to not really taste like broccoli. So I cover it generously in sesame oil, soy sauce, chilli & sesame seeds and then roast it to achieve a crispy/burnt texture. Hardly a recipe, this is more a declaration of how simple it is to dramatically improve the flavour and texture of a … Continue reading Crispy-chilli sesame broccoli

Maybe a cross between a pork pie and a scott egg. It’s so satsifying & packed … Continue reading Ready made nut roast – the new staple in my fridge
Not only is The Green Room cafe an incredible place to eat - it has a vast garden-come-conservatory outdoor area, behind the cutest florist - it serves up the juiciest vegan burger I ever did taste. And those chips. Those rosemary-salted chips. I can only describe them as slices of heaven.
Omg I'm obsessed with the vegan menu at Wagamama. This ramen is not just one of my favourites on their vegan menu, but one of the best ramens I've ever had - including when I ate meat & fish! The tofu is crispy & soft, the veg is alive and kicking with flavour, the seasoning … Continue reading Kare borosu ramen @ Wagamama
Disclaimer: I don't have kids, and the projects I work on at the moment involve me working totally alone, i.e. no phone calls / meetings, most of the time, and are long term things. Dreaming is easy. Executing on said dreams, not so much. And I have come to believe this is in large part … Continue reading Working for yourself; on sanity & productivity
