West African vegan food event hits London

Vegan supper clubs appear to be taking over London. It is a phenomenon that is exponentially gathering steam and pop-up dining experiences seem to be making a huge splash with cruelty-free diners.

One enterprising group have even attached themselves to the building Olympic fever by hosting 20 nights of special food events, each showcasing inventive cooking and food presentation from around the globe.

This experience known as Global Feast 2012 is not a vegan event, but attendees are in for a compassionate treat as the grand opening dinner is set to be 100% plant-based. Read on for details of the scrumptious menu.

If you are free this Wednesday night, I strongly suggest heading to Stratford Old Town Hall (just a javelin throw from the Olympic site) for a supper club of mammoth and mouthwatering proportions.

Vegan chef Chris Massamba has created a meal inspired by the flavours and tastes of West Africa and is presenting them as a superb three-course meal.
