When Jamie Oliver first appeared in the public eye, I found him seriously annoying. All that mockney cockney cheeky chappie Essex wideboy stuff got right on my wick. Over the years, however, I’ve grown to like him. Unlike a lot of other ‘celebrity’ chefs, he seems to have remained the same and not turned into a caricature of himself (yes, I’m looking at you Gordon Ramsay), plus I think he does a lot of good in promoting affordable healthy eating and encouraging kids to eat other things that are green apart from bogies.
Despite me liking Mr Oliver these days though, I’ve never made any of his recipes. Until now, that is*. A friend on Facebook shared a link to a raw vegan chocolate fudge recipe on his website and so I thought I’d give it a go and I’m seriously glad I did. This raw vegan fudge is deliciously moist and chewy – if you know anyone who’s put off by the phrase ‘raw vegan’ (and let’s face it, it’s not the most appetising phrase in the world, is it?), give them some of this.
If you want to make some too, you can find the recipe on the Jamie Oliver website.
*On looking closer at the web page, I’ve noticed the recipe isn’t a Jamie Oliver recipe, it’s by Mary Lynch. So thank you Mary, for the recipe.
