Thank you for visiting my blog! My name is Chloë, I am 24 and live in Brighton.
I have always been passionate about food and as an (almost) lifelong vegetarian, creating delicious, balanced and exciting meat-free dishes is something which I love to do. Amazing food is always at the center of my social life and as far as I am concerned there really is nothing better than enjoying an evening of good food, good wine and good company with loved ones.
I am lucky enough to have grown up surrounded by amazing cooks including my Mum (who has been a vegetarian for over 30 years) and Greek Cypriot grandparents who, although not vegetarian themselves, have an impressive repertoire of delicious Mediterranean veggie dishes which have inspired the way I cook.
Brighton has been my home for the last six years and one of the many highlights of living here is the array of innovative vegetarian eateries and availability of exciting plant-based ingredients from around the world. Eating out in Brighton I am spoiled with a vast variety of vegetarian options and a vegetarian lifestyle is very much part of the city’s culture. Many of the dishes I have created in this blog have been influenced by the city in which I live and I will be sharing some of my favourite restaurant dining experiences and recommendations with you here too.
From concerns about animal welfare to personal health and the impact of factory farming on the environment, there are lots of reasons why more and more people are looking to eat less meat and incorporating more veg-based dishes into their diet. The recipes I have included in this blog have been tried, tested and enjoyed by vegetarians and carnivores alike and they are as satisfying as they are delicious. So, whether you are vegetarian, vegan or just like to try new things, I hope there is a recipe for everyone!
