London Vegan Potluck 5 review

If you missed out on September’s London Vegan Potluck 5, you are just going to have to take me on my FGV word… it was a fantastic event. Seriously.

There were well over 50 potluckers in attendance and many more dishes on offer. The food was never ending and you could find almost any type of cuisine. We had lasagna, fruit skewers, mini burgers, seitan, tofu, tartlets, cheese platters, raw spaghetti, mole, chicken alfredo, hand-crafted truffles, cheesecake, falafel, spaghetti bolognese, iced tea, vegan wines, fruit drinks, dips, crisps, home-baked bread and much, much more.

I am exhausted typing this! It was a vegan extravaganza like no other and proof that the London vegan community is thriving and eager for an event such as this.

Keep an eye on this blog for news of our new Central London location. Yes, we are moving! Ms. Cupcake has been amazing housing the potluck through its infancy and we couldn’t be more grateful but the time has come to move on. The event is becoming too large for the space and as the colder months approach we need to be in a closed room. Check back for location updates, but in the meantime we can promise it will be a great relocation with huge benefits for the potluck.

A massive thank you must also go to our fabulous London Vegan Potluck 5 sponsors, Provamel. Their cartons of soya milk and tubs of desserts flew off the table and we are so happy they were a huge part of the evening.

Before I leave you with a few photos of the evening, I would like to give you a heads up on a new event in the pipeline. Following in the footsteps of the London Vegan Potluck is London Vegan Drinks. The vegan drinks will be a monthly event organised through this blog, so check back for details. It will be hosted on the 3rd Thursday of each month and will be a fantastic opportunity for vegans and their friends to socialise, let loose and not have to stress about cooking. Stay tuned for more information!

Thank you to everyone who came out tonight, thank you to all of the fabulous food preparers and thank you for reading. Here are the pictures!

    Does anyone know where we can buy Daiya in the UK???

    • fatgayvegan says:

      No where, sadly. Daiya don’t have plans to sell in the UK as of now I have been told. You can get an Amy’s vegan mac and cheese made with Daiya in Whole Foods Kensington.

  6. Carol says:

    That food is awesome. I want to know where you got that Daiya in the UK!
