Victoria D.

A passionate cat-loving vegetarian, I thrive on cooking, writing, walking, reading, sewing, knitting, gardening, travelling and the inspiration which comes from spending time with gentle, clever people. I'm a journalist from South Africa who has worked on a number of newspapers across that country and most recently in London at The Independent. I find it difficult to turn down fresh experiences - this includes meeting the diverse and interesting people in London's marvellous cultural melting pot and playing around in the kitchen, experimenting with new vegetarian flavours and savouring the delight of sharing them with family and friends.
