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. Once a month, vegans can put those fears aside at Covent Garden, with the West End gin joint serving up a vegan feasting evening.
Spread over two sessions — 6–8pm and 8.15–10pm — 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 celeriac and artichoke cannelloni, plus chilled tomato consommé, before moving on to stacked mezze platters. Next, mains include king brown mushroom with garlic flowers and mushroom dust, and baked potatoes with spring onion, olive oil and herbs. As for dessert, expect banana bread, mango and coconut.
That's just a sample of the food on offer on Thursday, October 11, with bookings taken for tables of two at $74 per couple — and last time, the event sold out, so reserving early is recommended. There'll also be Garden of Vegan cocktails available, though they'll cost you extra.
