Laurianne Giteau | Chef & Recipes
Hi, my name is Laurianne, I am 35 and I am from France. I have been living in Scotland for 12 years now (mainly in Glasgow) and recently moved to a lovely village outside Glasgow.
My recent move to the countryside is part of a desire to get back to basic and grow a more simple and self-sufficient lifestyle. Food is a crucial part of this lifestyle.
I have always known how important it is to know where your food comes from. I grew up in the countryside in France and my grandparents were farmers (all 4 of them!). Food has always been a big part of my life and my family’s life. I have always loved baking and eating cakes but in the last few years I have been more aware of what I eat and the way it affects my body & the environment.
Making raw vegan desserts gives me the opportunity to still enjoy my desserts without having to compromise my health and the environment.
I have been making vegan and raw desserts for a few years now. In 2013 I decided to start a blog (100daysofvegancakes) to share some of my photographs (I love photography) and recipes. I started creating more and more recipes in order to come up with new posts for the blog. I always found that creating raw desserts was easier and eventually decided to concentrate on raw recipes only.
Since I started my blog a few years ago, I grew in confidence and developed a real love for the raw diet. I have also been finalist of the Great Vegan Bake Off twice (2014 & 2015) and started Laurianne's Raw Cakes in 2015.
I am glad to have the opportunity to share some easy raw recipes with you via the awesome Vegan Connections community!
