London’s Vegan and Gluten Free Scene Series/Nama Foods. Notting Hill

Hello, Everyone!

I never thought I would like to write a review of a restaurant, but I definitely changed my mind after trying Nama’s Italian Wrap and their amazing Cheesecake. The food was good enough that after visiting Nama an idea to start a post series came to my mind. It will be called London’s Vegan and Gluten Free Scene Series. Or something like that. You get the point.

What was so amazing about Nama?

Everything was gluten and wheat free, it was extremely exciting for me because I could order anything! It doesn’t happen a lot when I eat out.
The taste! My Italian wrap: ‘Herbed macadamia ricotta, Pomodoro, green pesto, semi-dehydrated tomatoes, balsamic mushrooms, spinach, carrot’ That day I fancied some veggies for lunch and that wrap was absolutely everything I wanted. Vegetables were fresh and crispy, and the taste of the ricotta was much better than the original, regular ricotta./ and my fiancee’s blueberry cheesecake: Brazil nut and coconut crust, cultured cashew and blueberry filling, candied coconut’.  I’m so sorry mum but I think it was the best cheesecake in the world (:D). It was a blueberry cheesecake but it also had a little bit of chocolatey taste, it wasn’t too sweet, it was just great. And in my opinion, it was different than other raw desserts I tried because I could taste the coconut, not just the coconut oil which is added everywhere when it comes to raw desserts.

The way our meals were presented. They were served beautifully, it always makes me eat slower!
Really nice staff. But for the next time -leaving one menu on the table would have been useful 😀

I will definitely visit the place again, I really need to try their blueberry pancakes! I highly recommend visiting Nama Foods, you will not regret it.

This is my genuine opinion, the post isn’t sponsored!

What is also cool about them is that they also provide raw food courses (click). I think I will consider it as my skills are horrible when it comes to desserts and their presence.

Londoners ( or not Londoners who visited London and tried some vegan places) do you know any other vegan and gluten free friendly places? I really want to check them out! Please, let me know in the comments, email me or send a pigeon. Will be waiting.

 

Farmdrop Christmas Tasting Event

I think my blog is becoming too focused on food. Don’t blame me please, I love food. But… we all do? My lovely friend Meyrovich surely agrees with me on this, right?

So, we had an amazing opportunity to attend Farmdrop Christmas Tasting Event. Thank you Farmdrop for inviting us, we had such a great time.

We were given an opportunity to prepare some Christmas stuffing by ourselves, but under Masterchef finalist instructions – Beth’ Thomas and it was a brilliant experience as I have never made any stuffing in my life.  Meyrovich and I were given a veggie option with bread crumbs and then we could add whatever we wanted: I went for cranberries, sauerkraut, walnuts, mushrooms, fresh parsley, and some spices. As you know I don’t eat meat so, I didn’t really have anything to stuff haha, but I just fried it a little bit in a dry pan and my significant other at home said it was delicious, so … thanks, Beth! (I surely recommend to check Beth’s blog, and try making that mulled wine cheesecake!)

We also had a chance to try some new products, and if you are not vegan but vegetarian I recommend their cheese, Cornish Yarg, absolutely amazing and grass-fed, so no suffering here on the moo side of things! I am not vegan but I do care where are my products from, I wouldn’t buy eggs which are not really free-range and I know that Farmdrop eggs are free from suffering!

And good news guys! You can try delicious products by yourself, shop at Farmdrop and use a special discount code ‘ANNMARIQ’ to get £20 discount on your first order! (Minimum spend £50). Isn’t it amazing?

Wrapping it up, take a look at some of the pics from the event. Looks cosy, right? So hyggeligt! (The Little Book of Hygge, I strongly recommend)

Hello!

 

I know, I changed the name again. It’s a bit silly but I think I finally found the best one! The previous one – gone and forgotten.

But this post isn’t about my thoughts regarding blog names. I want to share my Farmdrop experience.

What’s Farmdrop? It’s an online organic food shop. I decided to try them because I am really unsatisfied with the food quality in all the big markets like Sainsbury’s, Morrisons, etc. If I buy tomatoes, they can stay two weeks in the fridge and even mould is not interested in eating them… Not even to mention me. Don’t count my boyfriend in, he eats everything. Friday morning, a lovely van arrived. Perfect time (I was texted the day before what time the driver may arrive, look at the screenshot below), an absolutely lovely deliverer unpacked my shopping, and the van… it was gorgeous! So, first impression? Great. Christmas came early this year, in August, so to speak.

What is more, everything smells extremely fantastic, like from my mum’s garden.  And if it says a bunch of beetroots, it means it’s a very big one. Artichoke? Massive, my friend. The quality is brilliant, I couldn’t ask for more. Will order every week.

Have a look:

I just want you to know, this post isn’t sponsored. I chose to do it because I think healthy habits are extremely important and I am really disappointed with food quality in supermarkets.
