Frozen Fruit Ice Cream

Hello Everyone, hope you are all safe and well and those of you affected by bushfires, my prayers, thoughts and love are with you. This is my first blog post of 2020. It was lovely to have a few weeks break from sending out newsletters and I am so excited to be writing again. Someone asked me if I like doing my blog posts and my reply was “I love it, I love sharing recipes and I love writing. What I struggle with is getting photos that are good enough to attach to the blog posts. Photography is not one of my strong points. Anyway it is not stopping me. I have great plans for regular blog posts in 2020 with fantastic recipes. So keep those requests coming in.

Chocolate Banana and Raisin Layered Cake

Prior to going on my holiday I found my well loved copy of Zorba the Buddha Cookbook. I had misplaced it for more than a year and was really missing it. When I found it I was almost tempted not to go on holiday so I could recreate all the recipes and make them vegan as a lot of the recipes in Zorba the Buddha are laden with dairy. I resisted staying home but on return from India I started experimenting. This is the second recipe I have adapted and it’s a winner.

A Recipe For Millet Porridge

After a recent visit down south I got to see first hand what a lot of the Vegan Chefs are up to since they have graduated from the vegan chef training we run. 
 
To say I am proud is a massive understatement. I feel it is time to show off what incredible work some of the graduate vegan chefs are doing. This has been a long awaited blog post as many keep asking me what everyone is up to. For those who are not interested scroll down to the recipe for the millet porridge as it is a goodie and actually one of the recipes I teach in the Ayurvedic module of the Vegan Chef Training.

It is feeling a really kind year so far with the vegan January initiative seeing a big increase on people signing up to try out a month on a vegan diet. In December one person was signing up every six seconds.

Banana Slice with vegan condensed milk

I had planned to only review recipes from Neighbourhood by Hetty Mckinnon. once every few months but just can’t help trying out another recipe from this gorgeous cookbook. As I flick through the book I think about what neighbourhood means to me personally. 
 
I live in a ‘hood’ very close to a small town which I have been in love with for the last ten or so years. It is a country town with a difference. We are two blocks down from the main drag and often I get frustrated with loud machinery, the constant obsession of people building and adding on to their houses and the very regular lawn mowing. 
 
However more often than not I have to pinch myself when I realise how quiet and how quaint the streets are where I live.
