We are Louise-Claire and Vanessa; friends and The Vegan Larder founders, plant based food specialists and recipe creators. We love nothing more than showcasing incredible vegan food with love, humour, and above all, flavour.
While we weren’t always vegan, we were always food and cooking lovers! So when we went vegan we made it our mission to eat the tastiest and most exciting dishes, and discover the best vegan food products on the market. We found that:
- so many traditional dishes we used to eat needed ‘veganising’ (yes, of course that’s a word)
- new exciting recipes needed creating
- someone had to explore the market for the best new products to cook and eat with. Yes, we commit to trying A LOT of food for our followers. You’re Welcome!
Out of this came The Vegan Larder!
So, what inspires us?
When Louise-Claire first started this blog before meeting Vanessa, the inspiration came from her amazing garden in the countryside where she grows sorts of fresh vegetables. We love to show people how easy it is to cook seasonal food, and how endless the possibilities are with what you can do with vegetables.
We’re in love with our planet, the animals and also want to cook for our health. Eating seasonally and eating lots of vegetables is a great way to do this. Yes, we still love our treats (especially Vanessa!) so also expect to see lots of delicious plant based desserts and sweet things on our blog.
What we do
We spend our time creating Vegan Larder recipes, as well as reviewing some of best current and new vegan products in the market (either in our recipes or just on their own – we need a break from cooking too sometimes!).
We have a consultancy service creating recipes for restaurants and other establishments, from sandwiches to gourmet wedding menus. As we love and breathe healthy vegan food we also hold fun interactive talks in members clubs, corporates and health centres on the practicalities of plant based eating.
