Food is not rational. Food is culture, craving, habit and identity.
Jonathan Safran Foer
Hello and welcome to Veggie She Wrote!
Firstly, thank you for sharing this journey with me. Whatever your dietary likes or dislikes, I am so excited to have you on board! Along the way, I hope that you will feel as inspired by and hungry for good food and travel as I am.
Born out of a passion for vegetarian food, travel and history, Veggie She Wrote is a heartfelt gratitude to my mother who introduced and inspired me to embrace all three passions.
As I began my travels, I became fascinated with the impact of history in every fabric of society, but especially in its food. Food is a reflection of a community’s history, culture, people, and strengths.
The ingredients in a dish reflect the surrounding landscape and hint at a legacy of trade, conquests and travels.
The preparation of food reflects the development of the community, and its relationship with its environment.
The presentation and sharing of food reflects the culture of the community and its social medley.
Veggie She Wrote is my attempt to understand the journey of food through the ages, and to discover unique vegetarian dishes that give a shout out to the spirit and soul of a country’s people and environment. It takes vegetarian dishes back to its origin, and serves them to you with passion and strength, and without judgement or ideology. Through travel and research, I will explore around 200 countries and strive to inspire you with mouthwatering delicacies.
I am neither a professional cook nor a travel writer. I am just a traveller. Like you, I enjoy wandering, exploring, discovering and absorbing all that surrounds me. I am no professional photographer or lifestyle Instagrammer either! My memories lie in the food I eat, the smells and sights of the cities I wander through, the people I meet and and the culture that greets me.
So can I tempt you to explore with me?
Are you interested in a ramble rather than a race?
