The potluck held in Thane on 19 September was planned to coincide with the arrival of Damian Eadie, CEO of Vegeco Ltd, UK. Damian was at the time in India doing research on the market for vegetarian/ vegan dog and cat food in India.
He brought along some goodies for everyone there. It included cheese in different flavours, vegetarian sausages, soy creams, gravy, ready to make packets of typical English sausages (fake) and nut roasts, mayonnaise, whipped cream, oat cream and so much more—all vegan and delicious! He also showed us how to make ‘Bangers and Mash’, which is a type of vegan sausage on baked potato with gravy on top.
After all that, we still had some more yummy food which everyone brought along which included tamarind rice, gluten free chocolate brownies, batata vadas, koftas in gravy, tofu cutlets, biryani, pineapple salsa, soy free lemon mousse, white bean salad, orange and passion fruit juice.
Everyone took home some fun memories from this potluck. Hope the people who missed it this time will be able to make it next time and make it bigger and better!
