Hey!

Thanks for stopping by at Not Without Cake, a London based vegetarian food and travel blog. This is where I’ll share my love for cooking, baking and embracing my inner nomad. I think my fascination for food began as a three-year-old when my mum would sit on the kitchen counter so I could watch her prepare meals. I’d watch her bake cakes (and then lick the bowl, obviously), organise big family dinners and when I was old enough, started to give a helping hand. Fast forward 20+ years and I’d like to say I’m self taught, but I will give credit to my wonderful mother for setting the foundations for this flourishing foodie.

Since then I’ve always been the creative type; a degree in fashion journalism, bold personal style and subsequent career path as a writer. But as much as I love words, my heart has always been with food. Being in the kitchen fills me with excitement. Although cooking is as natural to me now as breathing, I do appreciate how much it’s aided my independence, my ability to educate myself and others, and genuinely become proud of something. It also makes me extremely happy to know other people love my food, so that was me sold on the blog idea.

Not Without Cake is my online corner of weekly musings and exciting homemade vegetarian and plant-based recipes both sweet and savoury. When I’m off on my travels you’ll see snippets of that too. I aim to post twice a week – Sundays and Wednesdays. There’s a strong focus on healthy cooking because I honestly believe you have to feed your body the right foods from the inside out without compromising on flavour, so expect lots of the ‘good stuff’ and less of the nasties. You’ll find everything from those three essential meals a day, to cakes, cookies and other indulgent treats for special occasions. The aim is to be accessible to everyone showing you that cooking is literally, a piece of cake.
