A passionate approach to nutrition teamed with a greedy love of tasty, healthy foods grew my idea for Wylde Green Kitchen. I have been vegetarian for over 20 years and more recently have become vegan. I have eaten my fair share of bad veggie lasagnes, so out of necessity and curiosity I started experimenting in my own kitchen.
A stint at Cranks in London inspired me to get creative and the birth of my twin boys and the want to nourish their perfect little bodies lead me to a deep love of growing my own organic vegetables and herbs.
I studied Herbalism and was fascinated and amazed at how plants can heal and facilitate change in our bodies. I believe food should be something to celebrate and should not be about deprivation and calorie counting. Nutritious, plant-based seasonal wholefoods are guilt free as I see it!
At Wylde Green Kitchen provenance and quality are top of my priority list. I like to use locally sourced produce where possible and I am perhaps a little overly excited about offering food that is high in nutrition, packed with minerals, vitamins and fibre and is often naturally wheat, dairy and of course meat free. As time passes and I read more about the mistreatment of animals and our disregard for these sentient beings, I find my food is reflecting my concerns. I feel happier cooking and eating vegan now and I’m so glad to see that there is a growing movement and that restaurants and shops are taking notice of a once marginalised group.
In a time where the unsustainable consumption of meat is a worry to many and a strain on our planet I am hoping to bring you food that treads lightly both on the Earth and on your digestion. Heartfelt whole food.

“I have been having my Friday night takeaway delivered for a few months now and am loving it! Every meal I have had has been deliciously tasty, imaginative (loved the close encounter pie) and very good value for money with generously sized portions. Gilly also provided the food for a little dinner party I had with a few friends who all absolutely loved the food with the salted brownies still being talked about now.”
