Vegan Culinary Delights galore at Cookery Demonstrations at VegfestUK Bristol

Vegan Culinary Delights galore at Cookery Demonstrations at VegfestUK Bristol

2015-05-13 
| by Editor

 

One of the major challenges for any newbie vegan is to make vegan foods exciting and stimulating, not just for a day or two or a fortnight, but for the long term. However, for the workaholics in the 21st century, it’s not always easy to find time to nourish our body, mind and soul in a culinary sense, let alone working with unfamiliar food ingredients whilst switching diets.

At VegfestUK Bristol we’re bringing you a selection of simple, easy-to-follow cookery demonstrations that will not only leave you drooling over the prospect of eating vegan in the forseeable future, but also itching to create your own vegan dishes in no time to impress any of your pre-vegan friends, families and colleagues!

 

For the beginners

Beginners to the vegan lifestyle will find plenty of inspirations from these cookery demos:

 

Quick and Easy Summer Dishes from the Viva! Cookbook, by Jane Easton (Viva!) on Saturday at 2pm

Viva!'s food and cookery coordinator Jane Easton will demonstrate some of her favourite recipes from her own and brand-new Viva! cookbook:

‘Flippin’ Marvellous!’ - Sweet and Savoury Filled Vegan Pancakes, by hunkimori on Saturday at 12pm

There’s absolutely no need for eggs when it comes to making delicious sweet and savoury filled pancakes! Pop along and discover how.
