For Vegan Month of Food 2014 I am adapting recipes from the first book I ever learnt to bake from: Chocolat: Fondre de Plaisir by Camille and Nathalie Le Foll. Join me as I veganise 20 recipes from this book – it’s going to be a month of total chocolate decadence!
I just can’t make up my mind. Is it warm, is it cold? I switched on the heating yesterday morning when I rolled out of bed covered in goosebumps and a nasty sore throat already catching on, but a mere two hours later I was sweating buckets as I cycled into town, the sun hot on my neck. Ah Scotland, you never cease to surprise me.
(And speaking of surprises, guess who I saw on my trip into town? I cycled past none other than Neil Oliver himself, who seemed to be taking a stroll along the Back o’ Hill in Stirling. If you didn’t know, he’s a famous historian most known for the BBC series ‘A History of Scotland’, which is probably the number one reason I fell in love with Scotland in the first place. None of this has anything to do with chocolate and the Caribbean, I’m just fangirling here.)
And so lately I’ve had ice cream and this ice cold frappé-like Caribbean Chocolate as well as hot chocolates and homemade soups and stews. I could moan about the weather but really I love this season; the best of both worlds, cool summer foods and hearty winter fare meeting in the middle. Happy autumn everyone! I hope you put on your best wellies and go kick some copper-coloured leaves today.
What’s your favourite thing about autumn?
