travel / 14.03.2017

London And so we arrive back in London. Departing from my train, I take my first step back on British soil, with rain hurling down on me, jellied eels in hand and a cockney swagger back in my walk, I smile wide, ah Britannia, how I’ve missed you. My first taste of food writing was via my blog ‘Alex’sfood’, much of the material of which I gathered from eating my way around London. Here I would post restaurant reviews, write recipes and at times rant on food related topics. One...

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...

travel / 22.11.2016

So just to go over what Travel Tuesdays is going to be in case anybody missed the previous post (what, seriously!?), I shall be posting weekly segments from my very own e-book 'Travel like a Foodie'. This week's section looks out my somewhat pathetic two month stint at catering college. It doesn't so much give an inside look at what goes on at these sorts of colleges but instead, really just tells the story of a boy with too much of a sensitive disposition to make it in the...

plant-based, ramblings / 20.11.2016

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...

food, healthy eating, plant-based, vegan / 15.11.2016

To call this dish a ratatouille may be to disrespect the long tradition of this wonderful French vegetable dish… but call it a ratatouille I will. I'm a massive rebel, I know. So last weekend I had another mental saturday night planned, what being the party animal that I am, when my parents asked if I'd like to help out with their dinner party that same night. As much as I love getting hammered with the lads and chatting up girls, I thought, perhaps just this once, I'll stay...

travel / 11.11.2016

With the advent of President Trump, the downright miserable weather and of course the changing shape of Toblerone*, this week has left little to celebrate. Thankfully I am on hand with the introduction of Travel Tuesdays (starting next week, I am aware I write this on a Friday!). *I realise this may be an insular reference, but trust me, people are losing their sh*t over it! One of my ambitions is to live the life of a nomad. Taking my work with me, funding my travels not just as a...

food, healthy eating, plant-based, recipes, vegan / 07.11.2016

Welcome to the first recipe post here at Tofu and Tempeh. Like the 22nd of November 1963 or the 9th of November 1989, I think it's unlikely you'll forget where you were on this historic day! How curious, it seems all the major events of the world fall in November! Anyway, enough nonsense, let's talk borlotti shall we. If there is a more beautiful bean in the world, then I haven't seen it and let me tell you, my pulse consumption is off the charts. They can be hard to come by...

plant-based, ramblings / 30.10.2016

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...
