Hi! I'm Louise-Claire Cayzer , and this is my recipe site- The Vegan Larder. Here you will find seasonal plant-based food that will be loved by everyone.
I love to create delicious recipes for a large vegan and flexitarian audience. My recipes encompass home-cooked goodness, with global cuisine inspiration. I also love to veganise all my old favourite recipes, including some from when I was growing up in Australia (Shout out to my Granny who wrote down SO many goldies) , food inspired by my travels and recipes gleaned from friends from around the world.
My recipes cover everything from breakfast, easy midweek meals, canapes and cakes, to BBQs, wedding food, Christmas and birthdays! I even have a Christmas recipe book available!
History of The Vegan Larder.
Way back in 2016 I started out recipe creating and writing about seasonal vegan food and gardening. Back then the website was called "Poppy and the Bees", which has now been morphed into The Vegan Larder.
Poppy & the Bees came about because I had just moved to a gorgeous village on the edge of London, and spent a summer digging, growing, picking and then experimenting with cooking for all of our friends who loved to visit. . I found myself scribbling recipes on bits of paper for people to take away, or promising & forgetting to email what I had done... and eventually thought it might be easier to just write a blog about my food & the vegetables we'd grown that inspire the dishes.
Through dedication, hard work, and a lot of taste testing, The Vegan Larder has grown to become more than just a blog.
Skills and specialisms: Food Photography, Videography, Marketing, E-commerce, Perfect Pasta & getting the annoying nitty gritty bits done.
