I have a love for cooking and want to explore all the possible facets of it. Leave no stone unturned so to speak.

I am Vegan and love all types of vegan cooking.

I love the process of cooking. Being in the moment. Sort of Zen and the Art of Cooking.

Mirin Glazed Tofu or Salmon

This one comes from Nigella Lawson and is very, very good. I started making it with tofu for myself and salmon for the rest of the family. Very easy recipe and the sauce is great on the rice – so says Dylan.
Of course the salmon is not vegan but using tofu instead makes this vegan.
