Vegan Wine and Tapas Evening ~ Manchester, Saturday 9th November 2019

Vegan Wine Tasting and Tapas Evening, Manchester

For one night in November, the vegan chef, Lee Watson (author of ‘Peace & Parsnips’ cookbook), and professional wine geek, Robert Moore, are teaming up to bring you an entertaining and exclusive evening of delicious wine and food pairing.

 

Guests will be treated to ten fabulous wines* from around the world, each wine being specially paired with mouth-watering tapas from the same country.

 

Lee will be creating bespoke recipes especially for the evening, using local, seasonal produce, most of which will be organic. It promises to be a menu filled with plant-based surprises and bold, creative flavours that everyone will enjoy, vegan or otherwise.

Albariño grapes in Rías Baixas, Lee has just returned from Galicia in Spain. We will be sampling a crisp, citrus and floral Albariño soon….

As you try each of the wines and accompanying tapas, you’ll be learning not only how to properly taste wines, but more about the wine making process and regions where they grow.

 

Did we mention that all the wines and all the food are completely vegan? We did? Oh, good.

 

Rob has created a varied and dynamic vegan wine list, one which will take your tastebuds on a global adventure. He will be answering any questions you have about the wine, as well as imparting knowledge on how to best match wine and food, offering you skills to asses and buy quality vegan wines.

 

Lee will talk about the dishes and how they were prepared, sharing vegan cooking tips, plus you will leave with a recipe booklet containing a number of the tapas recipes so you can try them at home for yourself.

 

We are in the process of finalising the wine list and menu and will be let you know further details very soon.

 

Come and join us for a celebration of the best vegan wines and delicious plant-based flavours!

Vibrant Vegan Manchester – What a weekend!!

Vibrant Vegan Manchester in full swing

 What a weekend!  We took our Vibrant Vegan workshop to the North West and loved every minute!!

 

On Saturday we got set up and then explored Manchester, a vegan paradise for sure, loads of amazing vegan restaurants.  Then Sunday, BOOM!, Vibrant Vegan kicked off in the awesome Food Sorcery in Didsbury.

Umami burgers with pressed salad and avocado – some of the amazing food produced by the vibrant vegans on the day!

The snow caused some problems for people travelling, anyone who couldn’t make it, we’ll see you in the autumn hopefully!  Everyone who did brave the elements, what an lovely group!  We shared a top day of cooking and getting to know each other.  I’m blown away at how well people work together and share cooking skills and good times.

The food all looked and tasted amazing and was ready bang on time, what an achievement, considering it was quite a complex menu and we’re all working in a new kitchen.

The kitchen buzzing with activity. Awesome to see:)

 

“…The day was an absolute eye opener for me. I found my self surrounded by really inspiring and enthusiastic vegan cooks..immersed in a world of new flavours and exciting alchemy. Lee created a relaxed, lively and great fun learning environment. Each dish was orchestrated with time for questions and ladles of encouragement. His team were Lovely; they worked really hard to ensure that everything was at hand, washed up immediately, so we could all focus purely on the glorious creations.  I enjoyed every minute of the day, and the superbly equipped venue and location was perfect.” Anita

 

We all then sat down to enjoy the gifts of our hard work, a healthy soul food feast; Umami burgers, Mexican Brownies with Dulce de Leche, Sweet Potato Mac and Cheese, BBQ Pulled Jackfruit, Mushroom Bacon with Chipotle Mayo. Yum!!

Vibrant vegans washing up;)

Thanks to all who came and contributed in such an open hearted way.  You’re amazing!!

I even do the waiting on tables;)  Lunch time

Plus, big thanks to Unicorn Groceries for being one of the coolest shops we’ve ever visited, plus Network News North Wales for delivering our recipe booklets mid Siberian blizzard, Tyddyn Teg Farm for picking our organic veggies in the snow and Mandy, Mark and Jane, the vibrant vegan crew, plus all those who stayed at the end to help wash up.  Legends!!

Also huge thanks to Food Sorcery for accommodating the BHK’s many needs;)  So much good will and kindness coming together to make a very tasty and fun event.  Thanks to all!!  See you soon back in the North West.

Nita loving the burgers and the brownies:)

“Soul Food with Lee was a raucous feast of creativity and deliciousness! We cooked for hours, and scoffed our way through our creations: mac n cheese, BBQ-pulled jackfruit, caramel sauce, n’ice cream brownies, burgers and mayo…and all vegan? Magic. His supportive facilitation and teaching allowed us to relax right into the cooking, playing with new tastes and techniques. As a non-vegan, I’ve come away feeling totally inspired about the food I put into my body (if you don’t know about how amazing black beans are yet, look them up), making some more vegan choices, and proudly cooking a few more vegan meals for my family. If you’re looking for new possibilities to unleash your kitchen creativity, get yourself down to the Beach House Kitchen.”  Rhiannon

Our workshops are a mix of demonstrations and loads of hands on cooking.  This was all about Aquafaba.

Happy cooking, L+J:)x
