A great way to find out about new meatless products is to attend a vegetarian food festival. We have attended the Toronto Veg Food Fair many times, once attended one in Michigan and are quite excited that the first London VegFest is now less than a month away. To get us in the mood, we travelled to Guelph last weekend for their first VegFest, which we (and about a thousand other people) thought was a complete success. The weather co-operated, the food was great and people were in an all around festive mood.
Highlights for us included meeting Derek, one of the owners of Esther the Wonder Pig, hearing Gene Baur speak about meatless eating and the early days of Farm Sanctuary, seeing all the great vendors (Stella and I both got new t-shirts), eating delicious Indian food, and having mind-blowing vegan donuts and cupcakes for dessert (yes, we have a weakness for them, don't judge). Speaking of Indian food, the Krisha Indian Cooking School was kindly giving away recipes to attendees, so I have made one of them this week's recipe. Hope you enjoy it.
