I’m Zoe, a vegetarian chef. This is a blog containing my eating and cooking adventures across the globe, including vegetarian recipes I have collected along the way.
Daughter of vegetarian parents, I am a lifelong vegetarian and grew up learning to cook in their vegetarian bed and breakfast in Brighton.
My cooking has been inspired by my travels and I am often found hovering around local kitchens and persuading the chefs to teach me their tricks of the trade. Food is a powerful way of connecting and understanding people and I love collecting recipes and the stories behind them from my travels…
I started this blog after I left a stable 9 to 5 job (a decision that filled me with fear) and became self-employed. I took the Cordon Vert chef’s diploma through the Vegetarian Society, which led to my working as a chef on a yoga retreat in Greece for 4 months (many of the recipes here include dishes that were enjoyed by guests on the retreat).
Currently I am based in London and you can find me at the Bonnington cafe where I cook on the 1st Sunday of the month and host a live music jam session. More recently I have been running cookery classes for adults and children within a range of different communities and settings.
I love to collaborate and connect with others who are also passionate about good food, so please get in contact if you would like any recipes, are interested in collaborating with me, hiring me or simply wish to say hello.
