My name is Anna Rose and having been a vegetarian since 1989, I’ve seen how vegetarian food has moved from being cornered away in health-food shops to it now being a multi-million pound industry with goods available everywhere and labelled accordingly. Restaurant menus now denote their vegetarian dishes and the options available are more creative and inspired making them tempting for vegetarians and meat eaters alike.
Whilst I don’t eat meat, my husband does and as such, he is often referred to as My Carnivorous Husband (MCH) in my posts. By having a mutual consideration for our respective lifestyle choices, we have found a way of cooking and eating together in harmony.
Being of Slavic descent (Ukrainian/Polish), being vegetarian has often caused my relatives to be perplexed as to why I voluntarily don’t eat meat whilst it forms the bulk of their diet. Nevertheless, I feast the traditional Ukrainian/Polish way but with a vegetarian slant so I can still enjoy all the festivities whilst celebrating my heritage.
My blog features posts about my vegetarian findings and experiences - everything from recipes to restaurant visits and product testing to culinary celebrity interviews.
I am also a published food writer having written for many publications and websites as well as having had other media appearances on radio and recently taking part on food demo stages at festivals.
I'd love you to join me as I continue to embark on my foodie journey and bring my findings to you, so please feel free to take a look around my site and if you'd like to get in touch, I'd love to hear from you!
