The Veg Space is a place for modern vegans and vegetarians to hang out…. not a nut cutlet in sight, I promise.  If you enjoy eating, cooking and/or reading about vegan or veggie food, I hope you’ll find something of interest amongst the recipes, book reviews, product tastings and other ramblings.

The Veg Space has been listed in the Top 10 Vegetarian & Vegan Food Blogs by The Guardian, Red Magazine, Vegetarian Living Magazine, HomemadeByYou, and Foodies100, and my recipes have appeared in Cook Vegetarian Magazine, the Observer Food Monthly and others.

Since January (Veganuary!) 2016, The Veg Space has been vegan, and will be for the foreseeable future.  Recipes published prior to 2016 are a mix of vegetarian and vegan.

  2. Good Afternoon Kate, I hope you are well?

    We handle the PR for tibits, one of the leading vegetarian restaurants in London, located in fashionable Heddon Street, off Regent Street (http://www.tibits.co.uk). Established 2 years ago, tibits offers over 40 different delicious, healthy yet affordable vegetarian dishes all enjoyed within a stylish and relaxed atmosphere.

    The co-owner, Reto Frei, would love to invite you and a guest to come and visit tibits for a complimentary meal for two, in the hope that you can review the restaurant for ‘The Veg Space’.

    Do let me know if you are interested in coming along and some dates/times and my colleague Lydia Drukarz would be happy to book you in.

    Kind Regards

    Paul Atkinson

  5. Hi there! I’m at work browsing your blog from my new iphone 3gs!
    Just wanted to say I love reading through your blog and
    look forward to all your posts! Carry on the fantastic work!

  6. So glad we met today. Awed by your blog. :))

    1. Lovely to meet you too, and thanks for the lovely comment! Sure we will cross paths soon at other village fairs etc!!

  7. I’ve recently gone vegetarian and am having trouble finding some health food restaurants to eat at – I’m also based in Hertfordshire but wouldn’t mind a commute into London. Do you have any recommendations of places to eat?

    1. Ooh there are so many places to try – in London you must try Tibits, Mildreds and on a special occasion, Vanilla Black. In Herts try The Green Kitchen in St Albans or there’s a lovely vegan deli/cafe in Berkhampstead. Where abouts in Herts are you? St Albans markets on Weds and Sat are also fab for veggies!

  8. Hi Kate
    I just want to say thanks so much for your review of our products and for setting up the competition, which has so far had a massive amount of publicity!
