From Field to Fork: Vegan Rhubarb Crumble Cake with Custard Icing

When I first started working at The Hornbeam Cafe in Walthamstow, I was amazed by the quality of the produce we received from OrganicLea.

‘Beef’ Stroganoff – Fry’s Beef Strips

Who else gets stupidly excited for pancake day? It’s almost as though you can only eat pancakes one day a year. Don’t worry, I won’t judge you if you do decide to eat these crêpes every day! Since turning vegan, I never thought I would be able to eat French-style pancakes ever again, because eggs…
