Hi everyone! I hope you are all having a lovely, wonderful and delicious Easter break! The man and the boy in my life and I have just come back from a week long holiday in Croatia. And I wish I could say I'm still in holiday bliss mode but the reality is my feet have had to hit the ground running; preparations for my supperclub with Silvia are in full swing and then I had today's blog post to share with you all too of course! But, the hard work is worth it as today's amazing recipe for vegan mung bean rostis with tamarind and tomato chutney and vegetarian cookbook give-away are super dreamy.
I can't believe it's already a week ago since the 3-day food photography and food styling course Aimee and I taught has come to an end. We had SUCH a lovely time and in fact today's images, which were taken on day 2 of the workshop really, really capture the essence of what our workshop was about; lots of great food, lovely company and heaps of visual inspiration and creativity. I personally believe the images of day 2 were extra special as one of our 'students', the super talented Silvia, was present and SO generous as to share her delicious vegan red onion focaccia recipe with us as well as her incredible knowledge when it comes to styling.
3-DAY LONDON FOOD PHOTOGRAPHY AND FOOD STYLING WORKSHOP WITH TWIGG STUDIOS
It was probably around this time last year that Aimee from Twigg Studios asked me to run a food styling and food photography workshop with her in what seemed the unbelieveably distant future (March 2017!). Without hesitation I said yes and man, am I glad that I did. Though Aimee and I are VERY different people, us working together always kinda sorta really goes! And, I feel our lovely work connection shone through in this weekend's 3-day food photography and food styling workshop which was held at my humble, cosy home 'studio' in South East London. We only took 4 students each day to allow for lots of 1-2-1 attention and were over the moon that the workshop was sold out :).
Today it's all about my upcoming vegan supper club and collaboration with Salvia Limone, but if you just want the delicious recipe for vegan Rhubarb Layer Cake, please don't be shy and make your way to the end of this blog post where you'll find it. These past few weeks I've felt like a little school girl, desperate to spill the beans but bound to secrecy. (Though if left to my own devices, I would have told ALL in a blink of an eye.) So what is it that I've been dying to tell you? Well, if you don't live in or around London, let me warn you, this is gonna be a little bit of a letdown. And if you DO live in London but aren't available on Thursday the 27th of April, 2017 then this will be an even bigger letdown. OK so, pre-warnings done and dusted....
It's the week of Valentine's Day and - as I sit here and write today's post - I just know there will be 101 recipes on the internet celebrating chocolate, heart shaped strawberries, (heart shaped anything probably) and all things pink. I want to say that I made a conscious decision to swim against the tide and give you today's delicious vegan Tofu Scramble with Garlicky Kale recipe. But the truth is, I just totally forgot about Valentine's day as I was putting my blog schedule together (ooops). Nonetheless, I think there is nothing more romantic than waking up to a gorgeous, lovingly made breakfast like this one and so - though of course I'm not even a tiny bit biased - I think this is THE most romantic recipe you'll EVER find on the internet in the run up to the day of love :D. So, put on the kettle, pop Dirty Dancing into your DVD player, grab the one you love, snuggle up and enjoy your tofu scramble ;).
