Veganism is the practice of abstaining from the use of any product created by or obtained from any living creature.
Veganism is the practice of abstaining from the use of animal products, particularly in diet, and an associated philosophy that rejects the commodity status of animals. A follower of the diet or the philosophy is known as a vegan. Distinctions may be made between several categories of veganism. Dietary vegans refrain from consuming animal products, not only meat but also eggs, dairy products and other animal-derived substances. The term ethical vegan is often applied to those who not only follow a vegan diet but extend the philosophy into other areas of their lives, and oppose the use of animals for any purpose. Another term is environmental veganism, which refers to the avoidance of animal products on the premise that the industrial farming of animals is environmentally damaging and unsustainable. Interest in veganism increased in the 2010s, especially in the latter half. More vegan stores opened and vegan options became increasingly available in supermarkets and restaurants in many countries.

    Recipe Parsnip & Turnip Stew

    This is a simple recipe, but it yields something that’s very complex in character. Parsnips have a quality that’s like carrots infused with nutmeg. Turnips have a cabbage-like taste, but they cook like a potato, making it more hearty and warming than cabbage. This recipe challenge made me really...

    Recipe Keralan style tomato curry

    Keralan cooking often uses tamarind and coconut milk in curry dishes. This particular dish doesn’t include coconut milk but has a hot, sour and aromatic flavour reminiscent of Keralan cuisine. To me, one important thing here is the slicing of the onions and tomatoes into ‘petals’. If you simply...

    so first thing first, this isn't me going mad. it's a real Chinese dish, often referred to as black sesame soup, though I think it's more a pudding than a soup, perhaps a custard? but that all depends on how thick you make it. It's often served at Chinese New Year with black sticky rice balls...
