Carnivore Chef Goes Vegan
The following is my first ever blog post. I have come a long way since then and am proud to say that I am now 100% Vegan and am putting my years of chef training to good use to further the Vegan cause.
“Ok so I really wasn’t that prepared for this 6 week Vegan experiment. I honestly didn’t think it was going to be a big deal but one week in and I have decided to start this blog to share my experiences.
I recently started working as a chef at Fortify, a vegan/vegetarian café.
Which if you asked anyone in my family they would say was pretty unlike me as I grew up on a small lifestyle farm in New Zealand, eating meat for breakfast, lunch, dinner and snacks in-between too if possible!!!
I have been a chef for over 13 years now and have worked in kitchens all shapes and sizes around the world including top restaurants in London & Australia, my biggest achievement being hired personally by John Torode to be his Pastry Chef at Smiths of Smithfields. I have always had an interest in Vegetarian/Vegan food and was always the go to girl for Veggie and dietary requirement dishes as most chefs weren’t really bothered to do more than a salad.. as I am sure many of you are already aware!!!
I have experimented at work & home but have never cooked Vegetarian/Vegan food solely for a living. So having to cook and invent mostly vegan dishes for work I decided to undertake a 6 week vegan diet to help me understand the lifestyle and hopefully inspire me to create new and exciting recipes for the customers at Fortify, friends, family and of course myself to enjoy.
I will be posting as often as I can with updates and recipes so watch this space…”
Please check out my blog for more details, recipes, supermarket finds, product reviews & much, much more.
I look forward to meeting new people and passing on my vegan cooking knowledge too.
