What’s this all about then?

This is me, clearly excited you made it to my blog 🙂

I am Catherine and I am so happy you are here!

You have come to the right place!

If you are a human who eats food and prefers to enjoy the experience, then you are right where you need to be!

I create, test and post plant-based recipes that are accessible and tasty, and generally utilize ingredients that are available both locally, in my home country of South Africa, and internationally.

I believe that to create and consume food is an inherently nourishing process, and cannot be done without the inclusion of love and care. It is for this reason that I do not make use of animals or their products in my recipes, but this does not compromise on enjoyment of the food created, in fact, it is the opposite, and I would like to show everyone how amazing plant-based food can be!

I would like everyone to experience food as I do – to enjoy creating it, enjoy eating it, and enjoy feeling good about it.

I am totally inclusive and I create these recipes for anyone and everyone, indeed they are in fact aimed at the omnivores among us – this is a completely judgment-free zone where all are safe to experiment with this sometimes incredibly personal relationship with food, other creatures, and our fellow humans and planet.

I aim to nourish body, mind and soul, in the least harmful way.

I do hope you join me on the adventure!
