    Last Night A Vegan Saved My Life

    It has been all about the vegan food for me recently. I’m an omnivore but have a soft spot for vegan food. For this reason I found myself drawn to vegan fare- I often say that I prefer vegan burgers to meat ones. I recently visited StrEATfeast at Alexander Palace, where there was a wide selection of foods to choose from. Somehow, I ended up finding myself choosing the fried chick’n burger from vegan traders Last Night A Vegan Saved My Life- not least of all due to its quirky branding and memorable name. This was super gorgeous. I think Last Night A Vegan Saved My Life has got itself…

    My food travels in the Netherlands: Haarlem, The Hague and Amsterdam

    Haarlem is a cute historical city, with an old market square that boasts several museums and an impressive church named (imaginatively) Grote Kirk.

    Eating My Way Through London: Maltby Street Market

    Maltby Street Market is a hidden gem, a quirky version of its neighbour Borough Market, although without the crowds and the tourists. It is bustling and vibrant, offering a selection of groceries, breads, meats and cheeses.\nHowever, it is also ideal for lunch and I defy anyone to walk down there and not feel their stomachs rumbling, no matter how recently they\’ve eaten.\nIt\’s a bit of a task to find (although not for us, as my friend lives around the corner from it), however once found, it\’s definitely worth a repeat visit. Nestled under a railway bridge, it is a crowded tunnel of aroma and colour, with a blend of cuisines…
