I know, people don't travel to Louisiana to not partake in the famous local cajun and american south cuisine. They have crawfish on every street corner, 'gator on a stick in every market and gumbo and jambalaya are on every menu. However, New Orleans has a lot more than *just* the food to offer, so this list is for anyone who's drawn to the music, the art, the carnival and more; but wants to know there's options out there for some plant-based goodness. Believe...

2017 shall be forever known to me as the year I committed to my writing again, and the year of adventure. I summited several mountains, dived in caves hundreds of metres underground, visited no less than 11 countries, started reading books again, went to 12 gigs, protested and campaigned for what I believe in, gained two new jobs doing what I love, saw 12 amazing pieces of theatre, went to 3 weddings, spent more time in art galleries than ever before, and most...

Every year we like to host lots of people over Christmas. Our flat lends itself to the festivities with our enormous homemade dining table, red walls and views over the frozen canals of Manchester. It's also a great opportunity to show our nearest and dearest that eating vegan and gluten free is anything other than boring. 

The last couple of years I haven't wanted to add extra work to the stress of hosting and have settled for a shop-bought nut roast or j...

Better still, the flavour combinations are on parr with any fine dining eatery I've eaten in. A lot of talent has gone into designing the seasonal, locally sourced and ever-changing menu; with amuse bouche to welcome diners into the art of chef's art of cooking, and pre-desserts to cleanse the pallet and make way for new exciting flavours.

In True Faith we can appreciate Manchester's incredible music-scene and the legacy of arguably our city's biggest musical icons, in ToGather we celebrate the diversity and embrace our multicultural society and in Manchester Street Poem we are immersed into the world of Manchester's homelessness crisis, something we each see and often ignore every day.

Traditionally in a carrot cake recipe you would add raisins, but I'm not a huge fan of them so swap them for dates, this gives the whole cake a sweeter, fudgier taste and it keeps it really moist. I topped mine with extra walnuts and raspberries which help cut through any sticky sweetness left by the dates and syrup with that fruity sharpness and the earthy walnuts.

Despite the fact that the average 16-25 year old woman spends more than five hours a week taking selfies, the question of whether this is an empowering act of self love or simply narcissism remains complex and conflicting. The project allowed women, and the occasional man, to weigh in on the debate in a totally judgement-free space. The daily provocations ranged from ‘something you’re insecure about’ to ‘be your own art!’ Each project was personal, unique and...

This gorgeous afternoon from teahive cost us £18.95 each and although it might be pricey to do every weekend, as we were all about treating ourselves it was so worth it. A huge thank you to Teahive for being so welcoming and their dietary knowledge being all-encompassing, it makes such a difference to someone who rarely gets to eat cake unless I make it myself! I even got to take some leftover brownie home in a cute little cakebox!
