And so we reach the final leg of my journey, two weeks in fabulous Italy. I've decided to divide this into a few parts as, in all honesty, it's a bit long winded! Italy I figured I could roll all of my findings of Italian cuisine into one bumper section, partly because if I'm honest, I’m finding it hard to mentally separate Rome from Venice and Modena from Bologna in terms of food. This might be further evidence of my disorganised methods or sieve-esque memory, but perhaps it’s quite telling of what...

Something a bit different today. As Monday morning rears it's ugly head once more, I wanted to ramble on about something I call the post holiday blues. You know, that slight sinking feeling one gets upon returning home after a holiday, or perhaps returning to work after the festive period. The Post Holiday Blues Ye, I woke up this mornin’ Feelin' fine, But I came home from holiday and I've got the post holiday blues Ye, I said, I woke up this mornin'! Right, enough of that! Don’t worry, I'm not here to announce the release of...

Welcome back to Travel Tuesdays; everyone's favourite time of the week… except the weekend, oh and maybe Friday and probably Thursday because that's the day you get over the hump of the week, and Monday's if it's a bank holiday. Anyway, in this edition, I introduce the trip ana bit about myself. You'll read of my thoughts on food and travel and learn of my social anxiety and my mental nights out (I mean in) spent at university. Enjoy.   The trip Right, onto the trip. My attempts of professional cooking then had been...

Well the festive season is approaching, at least if advertising is to be trusted, and for us Jews this means Chanukah (or Hanukah or even Hannukah, no one truly knows!), which like Christmas, of course means remembering the baby Jesus… oops, no it doesn't, I  meant presents. But like Adam Sandler sings in the Chanukah song, the Jewish Christmas surpasses its Christian counterpart because "Instead of one day of presents, we have eight crazy nights'. And yes Adam, Chanukah is indeed a lot of Fun-ukah! P.S. I'm only joking about...

Right, please stay with me on this one, it all comes together in the end! Sort of. Richard Dawkins once predicted a post-armageddon future. One that saw rodents roam the world triumphant in a human-less world. I would suggest alongside a couple of headless cockroaches knocking about as well. To quote Dawkins, "I have a post-Armageddon vision. We and all other large animals are gone. Rodents emerge as the ultimate post-human scavengers. They gnaw their way through New York, London and Tokyo, digesting spilled larders, ghost supermarkets and human corpses and turning...

Firstly, I wish to thank all of you for checking out Tofu&Tempeh. Mum if you know anyone else who may be interested, please do spread the word. So, I wanted to kick things off with a bit of an introduction. Telling all you fine folk what you can expect from this blog and why I decided to start this blog in the first place. I was reluctant to label this blog a vegan blog because, well frankly I'm not (yet) a vegan. Instead I'm just someone who follows a plant based diet...
