We are the Beach House Kitchen. A hill-side refuge for lovers of vegetarian food, real home cooked fare, always bursting with flavour and normally good for you. Food to make you sparkle and zing. Super healthy wonder food!
I am Lee and I live with sweet Jane. We are passionate about vegetables, fruits, beans, pulses and of course NUTS! Vegetarian food in all its lovely forms and textures, both cooking it and growing it.
I do most of the cooking and Jane, the washing up (and perfect cups of tea). We live a peaceful, natural life and hope that the Beach House Kitchen will give you a healthy slice of both.
We like to make cooking simple and fun. Our ingredients are local and organic (when we can!) and always as fresh as a daisy (always!). We share everything, all the knowledge we glean and tasty morsels we much will be here.
As well as focusing on the healthy style of cooking that we love eating everyday, we will promote an occasional moment of decadence. Our ‘treat’ section will take care of those times of much-needed indulgence. Curled up in a corner with a slab of brownie or a drop of sloe gin, we all need a little sweetness in our lives.
The Beach House is located in the Snowdonia Mountain Range in Wales, overlooking the Irish Sea and the island of Angelsey, a 200-year-old slate cottage with a cosy kitchen that is home to all our inspiration and recipes. Croeso (Welcome)!
We both love to travel and our journey has taken us all over the planet. You will see this in our food, we love to experiment. At the minute it’s wet and windy so I’m making a lot of hearty beans stews. The beans are from Panama, the veg from the organic farm down the road and spices brought from my favourite spice shop in Mumbai. These are treats of course, we believe in a ‘zero food mile’ approach when possible. I normally walk to the farm with my backpack on and our organic veg garden will be blooming later this year. Bring on the beetroot!
We feel a deep connection to environmental issues and organic practices and will give regular tips and links on how to minimise your consumption and impact on the environment. Moving towards a more sustainable lifestyle.
I am a devoted wine and beer sipper and will unselfishly sample different tipples and give my verdict (everything in moderation of course), always trying to think of new ways to pair veggie food with quality drink.
Let us know if you like our stuff. We are always open to new suggestions, feedback or your recipes. We’d love to hear from you (there are more sheep in our village than people!)
