I am equally proud and humbled to be featured in Kathy Divine’ new book “Everyday Vegans”.  And I love that it encompasses such a diverse cross section of people: truck drivers, models, actors, photographers, aids researchers, virologists, teachers, rappers, dancers, public servants, administrators, authors, managers, nurses, retailers, accountants, biologists, psychologists, writers, journalists, bloggers, lawyers, hospitality workers, illustrators, software developers, activists, vets, business owners, students, CEO’s, electricians, chefs, mums, dads, kids, families…

I hear the book has already been a sellout, which is wonderful news as all profits are going to Juliana’s Animal Sanctuary. It’s such a great read so grab yourself a copy & save a life.

A very personal interview I did recently with the lovely folks over at balancedbabes.com

When approached by the Editor to talk about “balance”, my initial reaction was to decline the interview…instead I decided to embrace the opportunity and be completely honest in my answers.

It feels confronting to be so open about our pain in such a public arena, but I am hoping my vulnerability on this occasion, by sharing my story……. that it helps others to understand that they are not alone.

A reminder to all of you, that even those that appear like they have it all together…. are also trying to work it out…each and every day.




My friends at Edgar’s Mission asked The Kind Cook to contribute recipes to include in their new ebook, all about lambs and I couldn’t imagine a more worthy cause.

To get your free copy and to take Edgar’s Mission “Lamb Free Pledge”, simply follow the link below:


Pictured below is my lamb free Harira Soup Recipe. Also pictured is Lochy who sadly didn’t make it despite all the love & care a little lamb could hope to receive. With the power of kindness though, there are so many heart warming lamb stories & happy endings for lambs like Lochy taking place at Edgars too.



Featured in South Africa’s August 2015 Edition as their “Blogger of the Month”. Was a great opportunity to talk about vegan food.


Some exciting projects bubbling along in the background at the moment. The Kind Cook featuring in magazines, booklets on climate change and a coffee table book! I will let you all know about them over the coming weeks and months 🙂


An interview with Vegan Foodies. May 8th, 2015.

The Kind Cook was privileged to partner with “Sweet William Chocolate” earlier this year. I worked with them on a Giveaway for one of my lucky followers. I also thoroughly enjoyed doing some recipe development with one of their products for them. The result was my Pinwheel Scones with Coconut, Raspberry and White Chocolate.
