What's WIDE CIRCLE COOKING about?
I blog information, news and recipes about gluten-free, wheat-free, dairy-free, egg-free, alcohol-free and vegan cooking. Right now I've been working on an exciting project where I avoid refined sugar and create recipes using a range of healthier alternatives.

Happy cooking!

ps. ask all guests if they have an allergy (because the recipes use some unusual combinations and they may not expect to find citrus and soya in the chocolate cake, for example).
pps.if you are cooking for someone with an allergy, please read my allergy page first.

Climate Week - encourages a vegan diet!

If you don't already know about Climate Week then here are a few details about this great idea!
Climate Week is Britain’s biggest climate change campaign, inspiring a new wave of action to create a sustainable future.
Culminating in a week of activities, it showcases practical solutions from every sector of society - including eating vegetarian or vegan food a couple of times a week (plant-based foods are more environmentally friendly than animal-based ones) and opting for seasonal foods with low food miles. I'm well up for this idea and while of course all the meals on this blog are vegan I must admit it's a bit more difficult to choose seasonal foods at this time of year! However, my minestrone uses the lovely spring cabbage that is around at the moment, so that's a definite winner.
If you like these ideas, it's a great idea to check out the Vegan Society and the Vegetarian Society for more recipes. Happy cooking!
