We were at the fantastic Brighton Viva! Vegan Festival this weekend and had such an amazing time. It’s been more and more thrilling to attend these events – being around so much vegan food is really exciting, and offers us the chance to eat things we’ve never seen before.
This week we decided to give Fry’s a try. Fry’s isn’t available in our local supermarket but we did find a wide range at Holland and Barrett, of which these Fry’s meat free traditional burgers were one.
You cook them by frying, which makes sense given the name. We popped them into a pan with some FryLight and gave them a try, served up with some Quorn bacon and rice for an impromptu weeknight meal that was quick and easy to make.
Recently we received a complimentary Cheese Posties delivery for review, and we’re itching to share that experience with you. You’ve heard of box subscriptions in almost every category that you can think of, but this one is super interesting – it’s a cheese toastie delivered to you at regular intervals so you can make your own with fancy ingredients and unique flavours. This is gourmet DIY toasted sandwich goodness all delivered in a quirky package – and did we mention their name is just about the best pun ever?
We headed out to London this weekend for the Viva! Vegan Festival, which was held in the Drum at Wembley. It’s a huge venue and it was packed full of various vegan stalls, which was just amazing to see. There was so much variety, as you can see in our video here:
This week we’re bringing you a review of Ora kitchen towels, a revolutionary little product which we were gifted in order to bring you our opinion.
These towels are not your grandma’s paper towels. The way that they are stored and stacked means a big difference in the way that you can use them. You can grab them with one hand with no need to tear them off the sheet – which is perfect for when something spills and you need to act fast. You won’t accidentally unravel the whole roll or waste anything because of this format. There’s also twice as many towels as you would get with conventional kitchen rolls, so there’s so much to like about them.
This week we’re looking at a recipe from another blog! We love the Deliciously Ella cookbooks and have both the first one and Every Day sitting proudly on our shelf. Of course, whenever we see a veggie burger recipe we get excited, and we just have to try it. This recipe is for the black bean burgers, which can be found in Every Day.
So, it’s time once again to revisit one of our favourite venues: The Lady Luck in Canterbury, which you will have heard about previously if you’re a regular reader. This time it’s the turn of the Greenhouse Burger, one of their specials which appears to pop up regularly (or has been available on at least two of our visits, at any rate).
We were invited down this past weekend to sample some veggie food and cocktails at Brick & Liquor, a relatively new venue in Tooting. It opened in October 2016 under the management of David Layton, who has 12 years of experience in running venues across London.
We previously reviewed a burger at the Slug and Lettuce, but that venue in Tonbridge has since been renovated into The Gatehouse. Good news for us, because it seemed a lot livelier and had a better atmosphere when we visited to try their new burger!
The apple doesn’t fall far from the tree, however, as there are a lot of similarities between the two burgers. Here’s the description from The Gatehouse menu:
Something a little different this week: a review of a television show, which you can watch right now on Netflix. Chef’s Table: France is a series looking at some of the most famous and esteemed chefs in France, exploring their methods and the dishes that made them well-known. It starts with a feature on Alain Passard, who is head chef and owner at L’Arpege in Paris.
