“God that’s a lot of pictures of a bloke with food. Why?” is what you might be thinking. Well, you wanna read about me do you? Bit nosy, but hey you clicked the ‘About’ button, not me.
Just to bring yourself up to speed, my name’s Calum, or I go by blitz or Blitzy or whatever name you’d like as long as it’s nice. I started making vegan food on Instagram in 2019 and had the aim of making vegan food simple for everyone to enjoy and try! And low and behold, I have hundreds of tasty video recipes on Instagram and TikTok, a YouTube channel that looks like it belongs on Netflix, a whole load of energy, and a website that you’re currently reading.
I’m a 22 year old who doesn’t actually consider himself a chef of any sorts. More of a cook. And I started out purely on the discovery of finding healthy food that wasn’t an iceberg lettuce. And now I’m making lentils, spinach, tofu, carrot, and all kinds of veg go from boring and dull to vibrant and flavoursome. So do yourself a favour, go wild. Make a dish, they’re all super quick and above all, be amazed at the fact that you’re eating vegan food.
I have also had the pleasure of working with actual companies, such as sainsbury’s, wagamama, george foreman, manilife, tofoo & vita coco. If you recognised at least one of those names, then you’ll probably thinking “wow okay, this guy is serious”. I always work with brands that actually like what I make, who want to see more of who I am, and who are aiming to positively change the perception of plant-based food. So if you’re a company reading this, hello let’s talk business.
What else can I say that’s somewhat interesting? oh yeah, as a thank you to the people who supported me, I held a pop-up restaurant for one night in borough market, london bridge, where I served people my food, along with a dessert and a drink included. The event sold out in a day from going on sale and took place on june 2021. I plan to do bigger and better pop-ups in the future.
