Florence is back in isolation this week after a positive COVID-19 test in her bubble at her nursery. Luckily she isn't showing any signs of symptoms as yet and is her usual jolly self. As for many people, baking has become one of our favourite 'go to' activities during this pandemic and the various lockdowns. [...]

The Garden Chef: Recipes and Stories from Plant to Plate
There is something wonderfully indulgent about a Phaidon book. They are so elegantly designed, printed on a paper sympathetic to the subject and beautifully bound to complete the perfect package. ‘The Garden Chef’ is no exception to this rule. Printed on an uncoated stock to give it a rustic feel, with copper foil lettering on [...]
A Search for Clean Air in the City
Running and London. Two of my favourite things. But as fellow Londoners will know, these are two things that aren’t always the most compatible when it comes to the levels of air pollution on some of the city’s most popular running routes. That’s why, when the opportunity came up to join the Tenzing Clean Air [...]
Made in Hackney: Sarah Bentley on a life, career and family fuelled by plants
When the opportunity arose for me to interview Made in Hackney founder, Sarah Bentley, on her thoughts on raising a plant-based family as well has her role at the centre of London's thriving organic, local, plant-based food movement, I obviously jumped at the chance.

Eat it Anyway
If you are fed up of Instagram pictures of avo toast, have no interest in starting your day with hot water and lemon, and are no longer sure whether carbs are meant to be the good guys or the bad, ‘Feel the Fear and Eat it Anyway’ could be the January read for you. In [...]
This week I’ve been enjoying out Matt Pritchard’s new vegan cookbook, ‘Dirty Vegan: Proper Banging Vegan Food’.
This month I’ve been enjoying the Vegan Goodness Box from the Goodness Project, a snack box jam packed with delicious vegan treats. The box contains a variety of sweet and savoury snacks, as well as cruelty free cosmetics, sourced from across the world. If you are looking for some delicious, animal-friendly snacking this Veganuary, either [...]
Vegan souvlaki?! Why not?
When the opportunity arose to sample the new vegan range at the Greek restaurant, The Athenian, for Heathly Living London, I jumped at the chance. Being a vegan of the early 2000s, when eating plant-based meant carrying around your own carton of soya milk and having to request the goat’s cheese salad without the goat’s [...]
