'Bayanatu' Ethiopian fasting (vegetarian) plate

Vegetarian in Ethiopia

Ethiopia is a vegetarian and vegan’s paradise, especially on Wednesdays and Fridays which are ‘fasting days’  when no meat, fish or dairy products are consumed. I timed my trip well, as I visited during Ethiopian lent, when for a period of 55 days many Ethiopians will fast until 3pm everyday and give up meat, fish […]

Venice Carnival

This February we celebrated my friend Cecilia’s birthday at the Venice carnival. If you’ve never been, I would add this to your bucket list.

Bella Verde Restaurante review

I am on holiday for the week in Pollença, Majorca.. I had assumed that Majorca would be a bit like the rest of Spain, not great for vegetarians and certainly not vegans.. But according to google (which of course is always factually correct) it is in fact one of the best places in the world […]

Vegetarian in San Sebastian

When friends told me about San Sebastian and I read the lonely planet description of it being the ‘food capital of the world’ I thought, what better place to have a holiday devoted solely to eating good food and drinking good wine. So, I booked the trip, somewhat blindly, not thinking about the perils of […]
