Welcome to


Hi, my name is Lisa Tiesteel and I’m from Wales. I grew up on the Isle of Anglesey and made the move to France in my early 20’s to work in the super yacht industry as a chef.  Having left the yachting industry to become a mother, I’m now based near Cheltenham with my fiancé, Nic and our baby, Bradley. Most of the recipes on my website are vegan and vegetarian because I like to encourage people to eat healthily, using more vegetables and less meat.  I’m not a vegan or a vegetarian but my culinary passion is for fruit and vegetables. I love to experiment and come up with new creations, hoping to inspire others to try something different. I hope you enjoy browsing my recipes, bon appetit!
