Frequently Asked Questions
Yes and No.
Yes, as the majority of the posts revolve around easy plant-based recipes and all things food-related.
However, that's not the entire picture. The content also delves into non-food subjects like sustainable living or wanderlust-inducing travel tales. And truth be told, I explore any topic that promises to spark joy.
I‘m all for laid-back vegan food made with high-quality (ideally organic) ingredients.
I love to cook and eat different foods and I'm always curious to try new ingredients, dishes, and recipes. Yet, with my background in Romania, and over 30 years of living in Germany, I'm most acquainted with these cooking styles and enjoy sharing recipes from both traditions. Hope you enjoy them as much as I do!
No, I am a self-taught chef without a formal culinary degree. My culinary journey has been fueled by a genuine passion for truly delicious food. The simple truth is: I love, love, love food.
Before any recipe finds its way to this site, it must first pass the ultimate taste test conducted by my friends and family. Only when they ask for seconds or inquire about the recipe with a hint of disbelief ("Are you sure that it's vegan?") do I feel confident enough to share it with the rest of the world.
Therefore, I hope from the bottom of my heart that the recipes I share are not only loved by those closest to me but will also resonate with you.
No, I am not. While I thoroughly enjoy reading about the nutritional value and health benefits of various plants, I approach this information with a discerning perspective. I believe that each fruit or vegetable is unique, and therefore, I take generalized nutrition data with a grain of salt. Such data can provide helpful indicators, but I recognize the importance of considering the individuality of each food item when making dietary choices.
The photos you see on the blog are mostly taken by my partner Nils and me unless otherwise stated. Nils utilizes a Sony Alpha 77 II, while I rely on a Panasonic Lumix GM1.
After delving into the profound insights of books like Eating Animals by Jonathan Safran Foer and The China Study by T. Colin Campbell and Thomas M. Campbell, I knew there was no turning back. Embracing a plant-based diet is not only compassionate towards animals but also beneficial for one's health and the environment.
The blog name Planty Delights is a fusion of words intended to evoke a sense of deliciousness in the realm of plant-based eating.
Furthermore, the name hints at the blog's broader focus, encompassing not only vegan cuisine but also the journey of recognizing that life is filled with an abundance of delights.
