Our Discovering Vegan Cooking Event in Newcastle – Big thanks and some pics!!

Jane and I at the Discovering Vegan Cooking Demonstration

Saturday was a blast!!  We had a great day in Newcastle at our Discovering Vegan Cooking event, it was a little bit of hard work and loads of laughs.  The group was just amazing, such a nice gathering of people, vegans and non-vegans, people who just loved good food and good livin!

This was our first event in the North East and we decided to really go for it!  Offering a full and varied menu with a variety of different techniques to be demo’d.  We had a slight hitch when the power went off for our hobs and blender, these things happen, but the group were very understanding and it came back on, avoiding the potential raw food lunch that looked on the cards at one stage!

Whole Roast Cauliflower with Za’atar & Tahini Yoghurt

 

Here’s what you may have missed.  The menu in full:

 

Strawberry Power Smoothie

Homemade Oat Milk

 

BBQ Jackfruit & Cosmic Slaw Sliders

 

Corba – Turkish Lentil Soup with Flatbread

 

Whole Roasted Cauith Za’atar, Pomegranate & Tahini Yoghurt

Sticky & Sweet Indonesian Tempeh/ Tofu with Sambal

Tofu Bacon Bites

Wholegrain Herb Pilaff with Buckwheat, Millet & Quinoa

Kale, Avocado & Gomasio Salad

Chargrilled Pineapple Chunks

Sprouted Mung Beans & Green Lentils

Simple Kimchi

 

Coconut Banofee Pie

Decadent Double Chocolate Cake with Berries

 

Cashew Cream Cheese & Smoky Cashew Cheese

BBQ Jackfruit & Cosmic Slaw Sliders

 

It was a bit of a feast!!  We wanted to really showcase what vegan cooking is all about, vibrant, colourful food packed with flavours.  There were a few carnivores in attendance who loved the food and went as far as saying “you really don’t need meat”.  Which is music to my ears.

The recipes were all designed to be easy to prepare. The group contained new vegans, Deepa from the ace blog Veggie Mum Up North was on day four of her vegan adventure (read a review here).  Other people in attendance have been vegan for years and I learned lots from all, especially where to buy tempeh locally, which is essential information.

 

We love doing these events, primarily because we get the chance to meet so many amazing new people.  Thanks to everyone at Brunswick and to Dad, for helping with the washing up and making the tea.

Here’s a review of the day by Louise from Vegan Festival UK

 

We were a little busy to take pics, so a big thanks to Mick, Neil (NE Veggie Socials), Deepa (Veggie Mum Up North blog) and Louise (Vegan Festival UK) for the taking these snaps.

 

Our new recipe booklet packed with tasty and healthy dishes

This is the first of our events in 2017, see our full calendar here.  They will range from appearances at food festivals, to cooking demonstrations and meals, pop up kitchens, vegan and yoga retreats.  We’re on the move in 2017, come and join us!!
