Jamo Kidd| Chef & Recipes



Hello, I’m Jamo and I’m the lack of brains behind Cool Jerk Vegan Pies. I'm also the co-organiser of the Dundee Vegan Festival. It was a bit of an honour to be asked to be a contributor to Vegan Connections and a challenge to try and come up with original recipes on a regular basis. I’m not very keen on supermarkets and big corps and as much as possible, I like to support independent businesses and this is very much the focus of my column – The Cool Jerk Corner. My recipes are as much about the ingredients as it is the shop where I bought them from, which is more often than not – the source of my inspiration.

It’s a great joy to be part of the ever growing vegan scene in Glasgow and nothing makes me prouder than seeing both the local vegan business coming together and the local vegans supporting us – thanks comrades!

Outside of veganism – I am a compulsive collector of original 1960s 45rpm singles, a Dundee United season ticket holder and a keen but not very fast runner.
