This is my interpretation of the vegetarian mushroom vol au vent main course I had in Overture restaurant at Hidden Valley Wines in Stellenbosch.
After selling our restaurant in rural Spain a year ago, I now have the time to cook what I want to eat. That is, exciting, seasonal, vegetarian, world cuisine. I have recently started a food blog called Cook eat live vegetarian to indulge my passion for fabulous food. Every morning I take my dog, Rufus, for a walk in the beautiful Andalucian countryside near where we live and take photos of the vegetables and fruit I see growing on the fincas. I then cook dishes inspired by these ingredients and influenced by my knowlege of world flavours.Follow @foodblogdog
