Welcome to the party!Willkommen!

The Lotus and the Artichoke is a blog for vegan cooking with world fusion and flavor. I’ll also keep you updated on the progress towards publication of the printed cookbook and e-books expected in November 2012!

These are recipes, stories, photography and artwork about my years in kitchens around the world. Some are recipes converted from traditional cuisines, some are experiments, many are trusty standbys which I’ve worked with since going vegetarian in 1990.

My travels have brought me to almost 40 countries, through many kitchens, hundreds of meals from street carts, generous families, fancy and not-so-fancy restaurants. I pick up and work with new foods, techniques and flavours wherever I go. I’m especially grateful to all of the people who’ve provided inspiration, invitation and appreciation.

There’s of course lots more to the story behind this… Hang around, visit again and keep reading to get more!Danke fürs vorbei schauen! Willkommen zur Website The Lotus and the Artichoke – für mein veganes Kochbuch das im Herbst 2012 veröffentlicht wird.

Ich hoffe du geniesst die Rezepte und die Kunst. Ich freue mich auf Feedback und Kommentare!

Guten Appetit!
