We all know there’s nothing like momma’s home cooking. The dinner table is a place to share stories, break bread and create memories together that will last a lifetime! Who else remembers running home from school because you just know that momma has cooked your favourite? These fond memories are something we can all relate to and there’s no better place to share them than in a vegan and vegetarian cooking community, right here! Bring your recipes, bring your memories, bring your passion, bring your SOUL!
Hi there! My name’s Stephen and I’m a lover of all things Soul. Born in East London to a Jamaican immigrant family, food has always been at the centre of family life for me. Momma’s cooking, especially, has had a profound impact on my life as, 20 years ago, I was involved in a serious accident and was left unable to work for over a year. I spent almost half a year in hospital, where I lost nearly 5 stone in weight.
Lost, frustrated and feeling completely alone, my mum stepped in. We hadn’t spoken in over a year before the accident but, when her son needed her most, she was there for me, bringing delicious home-cooked food to hospital and to my home every single day. Without her love and support, I might not have made it through that time and be here writing this today.
Take a look at our About Us page for more of my story, as well as why I’m so keen to hear yours. If you’d like to share it, send us an email to and inspire us all!
" We'd Like to hear from you!
This vegan and vegetarian cooking community is all about sharing. We share food at the table and we share our stories of why that food is so special to us, right here. Have a read of our story of the month and then share yours with us!
We’re here to create a vegan and vegetarian cooking community, filled with lovely, like-minded people, where we can discuss vegan and vegetarian lifestyles, health, sickness, recipes and medical stats, while educating our own communities on healthy eating. Obesity and sickness run in many of our families and, so often, it’s caused by a lack of fruit and veg and poor diets in general. We know the problem – together, we’re the solution! Join our Facebook group to get involved and find your food tribe!
Check out our YouTube channel! We’re uploading regular videos, with recipes, stories and the general buzz within the vegan and vegetarian cooking community. You’ll find African, Indian and Caribbean recipes, all packed with SOUL. Subscribe now!
The whole point of this vegan and vegetarian cooking community is to see people come together and share the stories of what food and, more specifically, momma’s home cooking, means to them. As we go about the day-to-day, it can be easy to forget that, around the world, 1 in 9 people go to bed hungry each night! We want to give massive support to Action Against Hunger and we encourage you to do the same. Don’t forget the dough – every penny counts toward solving world hunger!
