Welcome to Ciao Veggie! You may have already clocked on to the fact that this is a food blog. Hooray! Just what the internet was lacking! 😉 This blog is all about vegetarian recipes. Whether you are a veggie yourself, or a meat reducer, or a total skeptic wondering how on earth you found yourself here… it’s nice to have you with us!
I am Christine, a London gal and a vegetarian of 20+ years. I wasn’t always a Londoner, having grown up in the US, and done some education in the UK, I’d say my heart lies in the middle of the Atlantic, and my tastebuds do too.
I don’t profess to be an expert cook or nutritionist or anything like that- just an enthusiast who likes to share ideas.
The blog is constantly evolving but my aim is to feature a range of accessible but interesting recipes for home cooks – not just vegetarians, but anyone who loves food. I love clean whole foods and comfort foods in equal measure. I can deep fry, spiralize, bake cookies and juice all in the same weekend.
I have a day job in online marketing. And I still want to come home and blog? Yep. Apparently, I’m a mega geek! Making this blog has taught me so much, it’s my creative outlet and my chance to try new things, and I love it to pieces.
My husband Robin is the Ciao Veggie proofreader, taste-tester, gardener, and book-keeper- and a hard-working Psychiatric Nurse by profession. He wrote a post once about gardening. He should do more, right?
We live in South London with our beautiful cat Jessie and our new baby daughter, Odette, who was born November 1st 2016.
