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!
