VegFest Brighton

Flexitarians, vegetarians, vegans and, the veggie curious descended on Brighton Centre for what was the biggest and best ever VegFest Brighton, yet. We arrived to find a queue around the block. The high-speed winds, rain and grey could not keep the attendees away; if anything it was the perfect excuse to spend the entire day in the cosy environs of the Brighton Centre.

We caught up with Emma from Veganbnb Travel, Henna from Plant Shift, Josh and Sean from Fat Gay Vegan, Mellissa from Ms. Cupcake, Vanessa from Essential Vegan, from Nishma from Shambhus, Amy and Kristian
from Dosa Deli and Andy from Pitfield Brewery . It’s always lovely to have a chat with fellow small business owners, as we don’t often get to see each other.

Another great excuse for attending VegFest is, of course, the FOOD! Looking at the food on offer you might get the impression that we vegans sit around all day eating cake, hotdogs, and copious amounts of craft beer. Yes, this is what we’d like you to believe but VegFest is, really, the event where we allow ourselves to indulge. Thank goodness they only occur three times a year, as vegan junk food is not what makes a vegan diet. Ultimately, VegFest is all about celebrating the vegan lifestyle.

Once again, the lovely folk at VegFest invited Vegan Peasant Catering’s head chef Adrian to conduct a demo. This year it was a packed house. And everyone got to see as well as taste Adrian’s Basil Sunflower Arancini’s. If you missed it you can find the recipe here.

VegFest Brighton was an engaging and fun experience, I’d recommend it to anyone who loves food, animals and the planet.
