“Cheese” and Tomato Tartlets

Vegan, vegetarian, gluten-free, egg-free and nut-free What I miss about being both gluten-free and vegan is the lack of snack -type food available in Delis and pastry shops. They do have on sale vegan or gluten-free savoury pasties and pastries but very rarely can I purchase something that is both. I must admit I get … Read more

Cheezy Chive Scones

Scones have always been an absolute favourite for me. Sweet, savoury or studded with sultanas. To me, along with bread should be eaten while still warm and fresh from the oven and slathered with butter, not entirely healthy but delicious. It has been a long journey until I made a gluten-free and vegan savoury scone … Read more


Caramelised onion sausage rolls

I love a sausage roll and they are the perfect buffet finger food for every occasion. I cannot imagine a Christmas without making some. I didn't want to have just sausage meat and pastry, although they are also good too. I wanted to jazz mine up and raise the flavours a bit more. Since so … Read more


Vegan savoury rolls

I love savoury goodies, much more so than the sweet stuff. Best of all for me is pastry, be it shortcrust or puff pastry. I just love the way it crumbles when you bite into it, sending golden crumbs all down your front and sticking to the side of your mouth. In my pre-vegetarian and … Read more

Lemon & Cheeze popcorn cauliflower

As much as I love cauliflower, I am not a fan of it just steamed. In my early year's cauliflower was boiled, I can still remember the pungent smell of over-boiled cauliflower. This happened in homes and schools and I think this is the reason my generation we were not so fond of this tasteless … Read more
