Welcome to


My name is Lisa Tiesteel and I’m from Bangor, North Wales. I grew up on the Isle of Anglesey and made the move to France when I turned 21. I work on a super yacht based in the south of France and I live in Cheltenham with my fiancé, Nic and our cat, Fathead. Most of the recipes on this website are vegan and vegetarian. I like to encourage people to eat healthily, using more vegetables and eat less meat.  I do eat meat and fish but my passion is for vegetables and I love to experiment and come up with new creations, hoping to inspire others to try something different.
