London Vegan Potluck II review

London Vegan Potluck II

Last night was simply amazing. London-based vegans and their friends converged on Ms. Cupcake in Brixton for the 2nd London Vegan Potluck and what a night we enjoyed!

The company was engaging, the free Sweetbird smoothies flew off the table and the vegan food on offer was beyond amazing. Thank you to everyone who poured their heart into a dish. There is nothing like staring at a table of over 30 dishes and knowing everything is vegan.

Before we move on to looking at the photos, I need to say a massive thank you to Sweetbird for the sponsorship. Please tweet, message on Facebook or contact via their website to let Sweetbird  know how much you appreciate them getting behind our vegan event. If you tried one or more of their smoothies, let them know what you thought. They would love to hear from us. Keep an eye out for them in shops, cafes and coffee outlets too.

I would also like to express my gratitude to Ms. Cupcake and her staff. The Brixton venue is perfect for this event and the extra work they put in to help make the potluck a reality is very much appreciated. Vegan Bear stole the show with his Spanish ‘Chicken’!

Now, here comes the fun part. Cast an eye over some of the food from last night. Simply amazing food was supplied by our more than 30 attendees. Salads, cakes, muffins, truffles and so much more was on offer. If you missed out, there is always next time… July 6 to be precise. See you there.

  1. Ooh FGV, I love you for posting this! I didn’t come (boo!) This is now, alas, my second only regret in life. I wished I had been there to sample all the food, (vegan frangipani!), offer my own too, AND meet all those lovely people. Put me down for attendance at the next one… I’m in East Sussex though, can I be forgiven for bringing shop bought vegan delights as not sure about carrying armfuls of food on trains/tubes etc?

    Nice job! This is getting only bigger and better! I fully expect there to be in excess of 60 people attending when I arrive in October. ;)

    Thank-you for such a fantastic evening.
    The food was wonderful and the company was great.
    Everyone made such effort with their dishes.
    Who would want to be anything else when we can attend events like this.
    Thank-you to Ms Cupcake ,Vegan bear and all her staff for hosting the event.
    I agree the spanish chicken from Vegan bear was very special ( and didn’t last long)
    Thank-you also to Sweetbird for their sponsorship.
    I hadn’t tried their smoothies before and simply loved them.
    I have written to them this morning to thank them for being so generous.
    It’s good to see some great reviews on the meet up groups this morning.
    The only downsize is having to wait a whole month before we can do it all again
    ( hope July comes around quickly)
    Finally London has a regular Vegan Potluck that befits such a great city
    take a bow Sean and Josh for making it happen

      Take a bow EVERYONE for making it happen! Potluck wouldn’t happen without potluckers. Thank you for the kind words, Linda.

      • Linda Galvin says:

        Well said i couldn’t agree more but we need great organisers
        to oversee it all and pull it together every month aswell
        so thank you for that ,and of course to everyone who makes it the wonderful event it is.

      Hi Clare. I don’t have any of the recipes. Maybe if there is something in particular you are after, you can post on here and the creator of the dish can answer.
