Who is The Chocolate Bear?
I’m James, a chef and teacher from Bristol, England. I’ve always been a massive foodie and have loved working in professional kitchens, private catering, hosting dinner parties and baking. Without getting too intimate, after meeting one very inspirational and epiphany-inducing individual, I woke up one morning wanting to share my love of food with the world. After all, what use is passion if it’s not set free?
Are you vegan, paleo, gluten-free and dairy-free?
I try to eat healthily 95% of the time. This doesn’t mean that you won’t catch me with a slice of chocolate mud cake at a wedding (especially if I’ve made it!), but it does mean that I eat food that makes me happy, satisfies my body’s needs, my mind’s needs and of course, tastes delicious.
Most of my recipes are either paleo, vegan, gluten-free and dairy-free for three reasons:
The people I cook and want to cook for follow these lifestyles / have these requirements.
I want to showcase how these choices don’t limit your culinary repertoire.
I love experimenting and finding new tastes, textures and techniques.
