VEGAN GREEN GODDESS SAUCE RECIPE IN COLLABORATION WITH GEM® AVOCADO

VEGAN GREEN GODDESS SAUCE RECIPE IN COLLABORATION WITH GEM® AVOCADO

For me the best recipes are easy, vegan, quick and SO good, you can’t help but make them again and again and again! Today’s vegan green goddess sauce recipe, which I’ve developed in collaboration with GEM® Avocado, fits this criteria perfectly. It’s the kinda, throw-it-together-last-minute-sauce that ALWAYS comes out tasting delicious, even if you get a few of the measurements wrong, swap one herb for another, or add some extra pepper for good measure. It’s not precious or precise, though I’ve written it down in the best version that I know so that you can make the green goddess sauce, tinker with it and then make it even better ;).

VEGAN APPLE MUESLI MUFFINS IN COLLABORATION WITH DEEMUESLI

When there is so much of everything already on the food market, how do you stand out? By making something so delicious and nourishing that everyone takes note! That’s exactly what the Belgium-based wife and husband team behind new muesli brand DEEMUESLI did when they came up with their two scrumptious muesli flavours. Tired of never finding organic, sugar-free, wheat-free muesli that was as delicious as it was filling, the couple took matters into their own hands and developed THE ultimate muesli worth waking up for.

Today I'm writing about food on instagram, why simplicity in food is everything and why I do what I do as part of my 3-day Saveur Awards countdown.

WHEN INSTAGRAM BECAME THE HOME OF FOOD PORN

When Instagram launched in October 2010 it was all about sharing instant shots of yourself in the here and now. Think polaroids for the online, digital age. Posting candid, real shots is exactly what instagram pioneers did, that is, until they didn't anymore.

ROASTED GRAPES WITH THYME RECIPE + THE THING ABOUT SAVEUR

ROASTED GRAPES WITH THYME RECIPE + THE THING ABOUT SAVEUR

WHO IN THEIR RIGHT MIND WOULD START A FOOD BLOG IN 2014, 2017 OR WORST STILL 2018?

It's that very question we all ask ourselves when we sign our names on the dotted line and commit to squarespace for a 12 month period. Why do we ask ourselves this question? Because the odds are stacked against us. The chances of anyone seeing anything we produce on our food blog are pretty low and the chances of 'making it' as a food blogger even slimmer.

TOFU AVOCADO SALAD IN COLLABORATION WITH SAPIENSTONE (AD) + FOOD PHOTOGRAPHY BACKDROPS PART 4

As an avid home cook and a food photographer everything starts with great food and a great work surface. If you think of it from the home cook's perspective if makes sense, right? Your ingredients have got to be right to create the dish you crave, but you also need a reliable, sturdy worksurface that makes the preparation process smooth and easy.

As a food photographer those two thing matter just as much - it's hard to shoot beautiful images if the food doesn't look right. And as for the worksurface it is ALWAYS a major consideration when I think about the mood and feel of a food photography image. It's the foundation from which I build my scene and tell my story. In fact if you read this blog post, this one and this one you'll know how incredibly important surfaces are in food photography and food styling.

My long term blog readers and my instagram tribe members know that I set off on a 5-week trip through South America last summer. It was a really important trip that allowed me to connect to my roots and discover an important part of my identity. You can read the blog post where I talk about all that good stuff by clicking here.

The trip also enabled me to meet the only (!!!!) other Colombian food blogger I know - Julian from Historias del Ciervo. We'd been instagram friends for a few years during which I gleefully watched his following grow exponentially and rejoiced when he was nominated for the Saveur Blog Awards in 2016. He is - to date, as far as I'm aware - the only South American blogger EVER to be nominated by Saveur. Can you imagine how inspiring that is? HUGELY!

In case it's not blatantly obvious I LOVE being social. You know, chatting, hanging out and chilling with friends, having a laugh or two and nibbling on some delicious vegan food in the process. Sharing experiences like these really help me get through the long, dark days and nights in January. And having pottery pieces that are both functional and pretty go a long way in making these kind of evenings with friends fun and stress-free.
