I have been vegan for five years and a vegan business owner for two, two of the best decisions I have ever made! I was vegetarian for many years and after just over ten years working as a Tour Leader in Latin America, Europe and northern Africa I created Veganbnb Travel.
I help people who live a healthy compassionate lifestyle have lovely holidays in Guatemala and Spain!
I promote the availability of a lifestyle in which animals and the environment are not exploited, through my business I’m able to show that making the decision to live a healthier, more compassionate lifestyle is not only accessible to everyone, it’s uncomplicated, fun and you’ll feel great!

I’m Ruth and I live in Brighton, UK. Cooking and writing (still editing that first novel) are two of my favourite things. I am passionate about creating exciting, satisfying and (mostly) healthy food to share with friends and family. On this blog I will post recipes, all beautifully photographed by my husband Simon Colmer. All the recipes are vegetarian, many are vegan. I am neither. However, given the totally unsustainable reliance human beings have on production and consumption of animal products combined with my ethos that meat is unnecessary for creating exciting and satisfying food, I maintain a predominantly vegetarian diet.
We have an allotment and by some miracle given that we do not put in anywhere near the hours that we should, it still produces providing a modest flow of seasonal and fresh fruit and veg to our kitchen which I make use of in the recipes I create. My travels for work and pleasure have opened my eyes to new flavours and techniques and are a constant influence on my cooking. In addition I am wheat intolerant and so I cook gluten free.

New York City based pastry chef, culinary instructor and author Fran Costigan is internationally renowned as the authority on vegan desserts. But don’t let the label mislead you; while her sweets are absent of dairy, eggs and cholesterol, they prove no less memorable than the best classically made treats.
Trained at the New York Restaurant School and Natural Gourmet Institute, Fran was a chef in both traditional and vegan pastry kitchens before moving into teaching over 20 years ago.
A lifelong chocoholic and long time vegan, Fran’s latest book, Vegan Chocolate: Unapologetically Luscious and Decadent Dairy Free Desserts, (Running Press 2013) is for all who madly, deeply love chocolate desserts, whether or not dietary considerations are an issue. Her previous cookbook, More Great Good Dairy-Free Desserts Naturally (Book Publishing Company 2006) is the basis of the Costigan Vegan Baking Boot Camp Intensive®
From small innovative beginnings in the Fry’s Family kitchen, Fry’s has become an international success. In an effort to seek vegetarian varieties Wally and Debbie Fry, both committed vegetarians, began making protein alternatives or meat analogues for their own consumption.
In 1992, just one year later, these ideas formed the canvas for innovative discovery which led to the establishment of Fry Group Foods. Fry Group Foods is still owned and run, passionately, by the Fry’s Family and has grown in product and stature to where it is today.
