I’ve always been a bit wary of raw vegan desserts after a bad experience at a birthday meal with friends (not my birthday, I’m all about the cake!) where the cake just turned out to be flavoured nice cream on top of a nut and date base… not as nice as it had been made out to me! HOWEVER… I did know that there were some blooming awesome raw vegan cakes on the market; I’d just not been lucky to experience them yet! So I spent so long gawping at all these gorgeous looking raw vegan cakes and cheesecakes, until the lovely Nicola from The Kleen Kitchen got in touch with me, asking if I’d like to try a selection of her vegan and gluten free raw vegan cakes.

I absolutely love to bake, and I’ll be sharing lots more of my favourite vegan baking recipes with you, but for now I wanted to share with you a bit of a Brighton secret.

How can you go about establishing yourself in such a saturated marketplace? Continue reading "Olive Grove – Brighton Restaurant Review"
One of the things people ask me about when I tell them that I don’t eat dairy, is “don’t you miss cheese?” – and to a lot of people’s disappointment, I tell them that I don’t. I was never really keen on cheese, but I know that a lot of people who stop eating dairy do miss it. With that, and my love of pizza in mind, I thought I’d start a new series reviewing vegan pizza options in Brighton, with my first being Morelli Zorelli.
