The Tattooed Byron Vegan debuted with her first Vegan Munch cooking demonstration last year in November and was inspired and encouraged to keep them going. After a little break she is ready to go again in 2018 with five monthly offerings, starting in February.
Angela is not a chef or a dietitian and is blessed not to have any food allergies or intolerances, so she lives what she laughingly describes as a life of ‘luxury and decadence’. Plant-based eating and a vegan lifestyle have changed her life and she wants to share that love around. The demo in February will focus on the humble Buddha bowl and accompanying dressings and is aimed at people who are new to, or wanting to explore, veganism but are stuck for ideas, as well as people who don’t like cooking or don’t have time to cook.
There will be a delicious Easter spread planned for March, which will include a glazed lentil and walnut loaf as well as a potato salad with a cashew and dill dressing. An Italian dinner party is offered in April with the star starter being a roasted garlic tahini crostini with caramelised pine nuts.
The month of May will focus on the humble juice of the chickpea, which gets tipped down the sink. This magic liquid is known as Aquafaba and is the vegan egg-white substitute, so this demo will feature chocolate mousse, aioli and macaroons, just to name a few. And to finish off the first half of 2018, there will be a delicious Mexican feast in June, offering five dishes, two of which are enchiladas and a Mexican chili chocolate cake for a decadent finish.
Vegan Munch cooking demonstrations are suitable for vegans and non-vegans alike and it is Angela’s aim for these gatherings to be fun, light, educational and inspiring. For all the menu information, dates, prices and booking, go to www.tattooedbyronvegan.com.au.
