Giving it a go

It would be a bit rubbish if I had married a veggie and instantly converted myself. That is just not the kind of person I am. However, living with a veggie has meant I have had to adapt and has opened my eyes to a whole world of wonderful food I had never experienced before. I love cooking and eating and sharing this with the person I share my life with is therefore obviously important to me, so this has meant when I cook for us both at home, I cook veggie. I am not dead set on becoming a vegetarian right now and am not sure if I will in the future but I have been so inspired by the many vegetarian/vegan blogs out there that I was itching to start my own. So here we go.

Inspired by NYC Candle 79

We visited NYC last month and what a fab foodie trip it was! These 4 restaurants more than inspired me, they made me feel positive something similar could be done in London! I am almost always disappointed by veggie restaurants in my home town. Those in New York were seriously just in a totally different league, it almost makes me sad London is so far behind. Now for my master plan to start up a fabulous gourmet veg restaurant in London.....
  • Blossom - stand out dish - Date and toffee vanilla parfait
  • Candle 79 - stand out dish - Meatballs in tomato sauce
  • Red Bamboo - stand out dish -Korean spring onion pancakes
  • Dirt Candy - stand out dish -Murshroom pate
I of course couldn't resist to buy the cookbook from Candle 79 and had to make those meatballs as soon as I got home. Served them on tricolour farfelle with roasted garlic marinara sauce.
