Review, by Phil D

Meet new people, learn some things and get free food; what more could you ask for from an evening out?

Healthy Eating on a Budget was the first 3 Vally Vegans event I have attended and I’m happy to say I’m sure to come back again.

The cookery demo had a variety of interesting dishes being prepared by Hillary, Kim, Rob and Sandy with each of them sharing their own insights into how to eat healthy while not spending a fortune.

The hosts presented great tasting vegan dishes such as mushroom risotto, vegetable stir fry and lentil dahl with plenty of useful hints and tips, even for those meat-eaters present who were looking to start ditching the dairy as well as helpful dietary guidance for the recently converted like myself. Even the vegan veterans in the audience got a few “I never knew that!” moments of culinary inspiration. Personally I was most tempted to try the homemade oat mylk (astonishingly easy) and frozen banana-based “nIce cream”, while other audience members were keen to start wild foraging for dandelions and lovage for their next salad. Free recipe cards and leaflets to take made it even easier to try out these new ideas at home.

With a welcoming and inclusive vibe, audience participation through sharing recipe tips and a great debate on how exactly do you pronounce “tabbouleh”, this evening was fun and informative and I look forward to the next event.

 

Our stand at Tour de Tod

Tour de food Tour de standAfter a wet and windy start, Saturday turned into a lovely sunny Todmorden Community day!

We had a superb spot, right by all the action, and once the crowds had assembled on Pollination St, we were inundated by people wanting to try our tasty food samples and add their names to our mailing list.

We had plenty of helpers and loads of foods for people to try and we promised to put the recipes on the website.  There was some lovely new bunting & a banner and also some brilliant business cards
and flyers to advertise the baking workshop and the walk, coming up this weekend.  There was so much interest in the baking workshop that we might have to put on a second one quite soon.There’s certainly a great interest out there in learning how to cook plant-based foods.

Thanks to all who made it such a successful day.

Our next stall will be in 4 weeks’ time, when we’ll put up our new gazebo in Centre Vale Park, Todmorden for Carnival Day. We’ll be handing out information and recipes, answering questions and selling burgers …. so we’ll need plenty of helpers!

Please let us know if you’re able to help on the day….  Email: 3valleyvegns@gmail.com
