If the words 'sharing feast' usually send you running, we bet we know why: you don't eat meat, animal products, nuts or something else, and trying to make sure you can actually enjoy the food is frequently harder than it should be. On Thursday, August 9, vegans can put those fears aside at Covent Garden, with the West End gin joint serving up its first vegan feasting evening.
Kicking off at 6.30pm, the plant and floral wallpaper-filled hangout's Garden of Vegan will dish up four courses of vegetable-heavy dishes. It all starts with tapas of taro crisps with Jerusalem artichokes and mushroom rillettes with poached rhubarb, before moving on to a stacked mezze board with baba ganoush, olives, pickled vegetable and more. Next, mains include fried cauliflower with wild rice, and butter and borlotti bean cassolette with truffle oil. As for dessert, it combines poached beets, strawberries, toasted almond mousse and candied buckwheat.
That's just a sample of the food on offer, with bookings taken for tables of two at $74 per couple. There'll also be Garden of Vegan cocktails available, though they'll cost you extra.
