pesto pasta

pesto pasta

This a non-traditional pesto and fresh pasta class. The pasta is really fresh! It is made using a spiraliser and zucchini. Students have a great time in this lesson and are at first very surprised that it’s not traditional pasta they are learning to make. And the pesto is made without parmesan, but some say

hank vegan burger

This place has been on my hit list since before I landed in Paris. It looked really good in the photos, and in real life it didn’t disappoint. The layout is quite similar to Le Tricycle’s. You order downstairs and then climb a narrow staircase on the right that leads to a dense dining area.

avocado toast

This is a simple, quick, tasty and cheap meal to make, especially in Paris, where I am at at the moment… French bread is sacred here. And baguettes, especially, are not expensive in this city compared to everything else. Until the late 70s, the price of bread was regulated by law and today there’s still

le tricycle

I found lots of lovely pictures of Le Tricycle on the internet while doing my research about vegan restaurants in Paris. It seemed really cool and inspired with its hip hop themed hot dogs with names like Snoop Dog and Dogter Dre. And bowls of rainbow vegetables and plantain. And the young and beautiful owners

marche d’aligre

It’s a beautiful neighbourhood market, between Bastille and Gare de Lyon, with stalls outdoors and indoors selling fruit, vegetables, some prepared food, plus there’s a bric a brac fleamarket in the middle. I went wild on the tomato purchases. The variety is unlike I had ever seen before. Recommended for food shopping in Paris, if

wild & the moon

Magical indoor forest meets beautiful interior design, with its white tiles, wooden tables and abundance of plants dangling from the ceiling. A beautifully put together space and menu, a vegan and gluten free cafe/juice bar with a big table at the back to sit and work at. Wild & the moon seems to attracts hordes of stylish, health-seeking tourists
