About me..

'Olalah!' - an expression of surprised approval used by the French. Also what I say whenever I cook/eat/see delicious vegan food! 

Welcome to Ohlalavegan! Thank you for visiting.

Hi there, my name is Kate, I am British, I grew up in the beautiful French Alps (hence 'Ohlala!') and have a great love for vegan food and traveling. This blog is all about sharing these two passions of mine. I became vegan back in 2010, mainly because, as George Bernard Shaw said 'Animals are my friends, and I don't eat my friends', but also because I saw it as a way of caring for myself and the planet. 

On this blog I will be sharing lots of recipes and anything that inspires me in relation to food, health, animal issues, being a vegan, and travel.

 If there's anything you want me to blog about or if you have any questions or comments please send me a message, I would love to hear from you!

5 random facts about me:

i. at the moment I live in London, UK - and am on a quest to discover the city's great vegan-friendly places!

ii. i work as an advocate for women who have been trafficked and used to work with children affected by emergencies.

iii. i feel very fortunate to have lived and worked in some fascinating countries - Mali, Burkina Faso, South Sudan, Kenya, Uganda, Liberia and Nepal. Now that I'm not hopping on a plane every few months for work I do my traveling through the kitchen instead - I find recipes from different countries and 'veganise' them!

vi. i have an aid worker Canadian boyfriend who is trying to convert me to being a Canucks fan and a super cute cat named Hatty,  who is a champion curtain climber! 

v. i daydream about owning a vegan cafe one day :)
