A. Gulden

As you may have noticed, I enjoy food immensely. I believe strongly that just because you choose not to eat meat does not mean that you cannot be a "foodie" and have a much wider and varied repertoire than just pasta or salad.

My journey started many years ago in Turkey (my home country) while I was running with my own restaurant. After a downward health spiral based on a meat-centric diet aligned with food we were serving, I started my journey into vegetarianism. Within a very short space of time I found my health vastly improved and learning just how dangerous our consumption of meat can be.

While I was still studying nutrition in Australia, my food and nutrition related articles have been published back in Turkey in an agricultural magazine called Agroskop.

This year, I finished my nutrition related studies. I am now certified in many areas such as Clinical Nutrition, Advanced Ayurveda, Vegetarian and Vegan Nutrition, Food and Environmental Allergies and am also a Master Therapist of Natural Therapies.

At the moment, I live in Sydney with my husband and an Australian silky terrier.

So, I went for the photo on… Continue reading Pad Cashew Nut, VegFusion Style The post Pad Cashew Nut, VegFusion Style appeared first on VegFusion.

  • My Very First Chinese Hot Pot Experience

    7th July 2018

    A dear friend of mine, Qi, invited us around to their place for a vegetarian Chinese hot pot. Her sister brought her an electric hot pot—all the way from China—as a present. So, Qi wanted to share this authentic experience with us by cooking everything vegetarian. How cool is that? It was also the cold… Continue reading My Very First Chinese Hot Pot Experience The post My Very First Chinese Hot Pot Experience appeared first on VegFusion.

  • Braised Flowering Chives with Ginger

    26th May 2018

    After one visit to Chatswood last Friday, I was full of new Asian food ideas. Just like that! I must admit, Chatswood has a few good places to shop. Asian City is one of them. That’s where we buy our vegetarian dumplings from and their freezer section is full of Lamyong products—not the whole range… Continue reading Braised Flowering Chives with Ginger The post Braised Flowering Chives with Ginger appeared first on VegFusion.

    Yes! Finally, we have a meze place in Sydney. And a good one, too. I am so happy to have discovered this place called Meyhanee. One of our dear friends, Hürol, was talking about a meze place in Balmain for some time.
