  1. Re: Ms Cupcake: The Naughtiest Vegan Cakes in Town by Mellissa Morgan

    I am an adopted Brixton native (well, sort of, not really...) but I do live in Brixton so I picked this up for a piece of local "history" (is that the word I want?) if nothing else. I was please to...
  2. Difference between soft and silken tofu, or types of tofu between countries?

    Does anyone happen to know if there's a difference between what's called "soft" and what's called "silken" tofu? Particularly between countries like the UK and US?

    The reason I ask is that I've...
  3. Re: The Best Veggie Burgers on the Planet - Joni-Marie Newman

    Unless you are very pressed for space where you live I'd recommend any vegan to buy some gluten flour online in bulk. If you buy about ten bags at once the price works out reasonable, and obviously...

    Re: New Isa Chandra Moskowitz book! Pies!

    Well want this.

    Hope this includes some savoury pies. As a quasi-northern English male I have a mutated gene directing me towards pies of varying sorts.

  13. Poll: Re: Do you rely on processed foods or ready meals as part of your vegan diet?

  14. Poll: Re: Do you rely on processed foods or ready meals as part of your vegan diet?

    To be honest I would consider any non-raw food to be processed, and my diet is a long way from raw, so the answer from me would be yes.

    In a more general sense though, I'm fine with tinned (and...
