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, September 13, 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 — 6.30–8pm and 8–9.30pm — 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 zucchini blossoms with rice, kimchi and avocado, plus
pumpkin sauce and garlic oil over nasturtiums, 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 baked potatoes with oyster mushrooms and truffle mustard. As for dessert, it's a persimmons compote filo with sesame, almond and vanilla custard.

That's just a sample of the food on offer, 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.
