Hi All! I have returned from serving as a Peace Corps Volunteer in Senegal, West Africa and just finished a summer of apprenticing on an organic vegetable farm. Now I am the chef at Cafe Delavignes, a subdivision of The Olive Oil Factory.
The best part of my job? Free flavored oils and vinegars to experiment and create recipes with! Yes, you may have noticed an infusion of fancy oil related recipes — it is my new obsession.
This blog was born in a time when I was eating exclusively gluten-free, soy-free, vegan food. As I continue my journey, I have ventured outside of these lines a bit and no longer consider myself strictly vegan. However, I still identify strongly with many vegan values, and follow these most of the time, thus I have decided to keep this blog and continue to post my recipes here
Thank you to everyone who has emailed me with recipes, suggestions, and comments. It is really great to hear from all of you, and it inspires me to continue my work. Please continue to email me with any feedback about my blog, or with recipes you would like to share with me:)
My email is: firstname.lastname@example.org.
When I started this blog, I was thinking it would be a place to collect my favorite recipes and maybe share them with family and close friends. Now, who could believe everyone who is reading and sharing — it is beyond my biggest dreams! Because the blog is becoming very public, please be understanding while I undergo some necessary renovations. I have quite a few recipes I have taken or adapted from cookbooks and re-blogged from other bloggers. I will try to switch these recipes over to direct you to the original source, or, in the case of cookbooks I am working on getting permission to replicate some of their recipes on this blog. In the meantime, I have taken down some posts to avoid any copyright issues, or insulting any of the amazing cooks who have shared their recipes with all of us. If you are looking for a recipe that seems to have disappeared, just send me an email and I will get you that information asap. Cheers (-:
