Samantha Onyemenam

I’m a recipe developer whose love for cooking stemmed from being a vegetarian child (now vegan adult) in a house full of meat-eaters who were unfamiliar with cooking without animal products or byproducts. Apart from cooking, I have a passion for the performing arts, architecture and fulfilling my God-given purpose which I believe is to help those who are less privileged than I am (mainly in England and Nigeria) in whatever way I can.

My 5 Favorite Vegan Ingredients: Garlic, chillies, onions, ginger and vegetable stock.

My 3 Favourite Vegan Dishes: Dhal made with coconut milk, Colombian black bean stew, Tabbouleh.

Currently working on: Work (for an architectural firm), Developing a new recipe, Research for Culture Tuesdays, New content to relaunch my website with, Spreading awareness on social and humanitarian issues.

My Life Motto: “I don't want to live in the kind of world where we don't look out for each other. Not just the people that are close to us, but anybody who needs a helping hand. I cant change the way anybody else thinks, or what they choose to do, but I can do my bit.” - Charles de Lint
