Welcome to Vohn’s Vittles
Hello and welcome to Vohn’s Vittles.
I’m Vohn, a keen amateur cook who is passionate about great-tasting food, cooked from scratch, using natural ingredients. Here’s a little run down on my favourite themes that I have been exploring on Vohn’s Vittles in the past year…

Vegan and Vegetarian recipes
It is more environmentally friendly to eat a vegetarian diet, rather than a meat-based diet.
I’m not a vegetarian but do limit my meat consumption, so make lots of lovely vegan and veggie-friendly recipes.
I love to travel but don’t often have the time or money so I bring the world to me, in food form, instead!
I love to be challenged and often enter blogger challenges to cook with specific ingredients or themes.
I also devoted a whole week of recipes to my Doctor Who obsession.
What other crazy theme-weeks would you like to see?
Foodie masterclasses and events
I have a great thirst for knowledge so regularly attend foodie events, workshops and masterclasses.
I love finding out about great products, especially when they are made with extra thought and attention to detail.
I am also keen to more fully explore my local suppliers as exciting new foodie businesses pop up in my local area.
What is a Vohn, or even a Vittle?!
“Vohn” is me, pleased to meet you! Vohn (rhymes with John) is my childhood nickname, short for Siobhan.
“Vittle” is the slang word for an older word “victual” which oddly is actually pronounced “vittel”. It means “food” or “provisions” and this is what Vohn’s Vittles is all about – food!
Vohn’s food ethos
I’m passionate about great-tasting food, cooked from scratch, using natural ingredients. I love sourcing food, discovering new ingredients, exploring new cuisines, planning menus, developing recipes, cooking, eating and sharing food. All in all I’m rather obsessed by food!
I love to cook recipes from around the world but I also like to try to source my ingredients locally and sustainably whenever possible. I follow the Fife Diet ethos “Think Global Eat Local” which guides us to source 80% of our food locally and in season but also allows us to source 20% from further afield so we can still enjoy spices and specialities from around the world. This makes for a very enjoyable diet full of great flavour, better nutrients, lower food miles and exciting discoveries.
