I’m a lover of food raised in Argentina: the land of meat and abundant cheese. From the time that I was a small child I eschewed meat, and later in life my body revolted against all lactose. I was used to being the oddball. Still facing the battle of family and friends who don’t understand what it means to be a vegan, I took up the torch and started cooking, and writing about eating healthy, without meat, and without dairy. I soon learned that there were those who faced the same challenges that I do. So I made it my mission to create dishes that could be reminiscent of the classic argentinian cuisine I grew up with, while being the most nutritious, healthier and delicious option.
