About Me


Hi, My name is Ivy (@umeko_chan) and I live in Edinburgh, Scotland with my husband Leo and our cat Jiji.

I’m a food enthusiast, I cook at home from scratch every day but also enjoy eating out (support your local vegan places) and shopping for new and interesting ingredients to experiment with.

I love to travel and want to see the world and experience all the different vegan flavours there are along the way.

I’m slowly embracing minimalism which is interesting when you live with a maximalist and last but not least I’m into my yoga.
