I'm Emi. I grew up outside Napoli, Italy, where food is a religion. I'm vegan and it does not stop me from eating great food. Quite the contrary! I’ve improved on old methods and discovered new ingredients. It isn’t about what’s “missing”. Vegan cooking is about what’s in it: a wealth of umami-rich ingredients that make deeply satisfying dishes for anyone who likes food and no one gets hurt in the process.
My favourite sources of kitchen inspiration are classic Neapolitan and Italian dishes, many of which are inherently vegan – as in, it’s just food!
