Our Last GORGE in England: Food, Food, Food

Image
It was a lot of fun getting to back in the UK for the summer. We got to do some more exploring and enjoying our time in the UK. For the last little while in the UK we tried to make the most of it and go out for vegan food whenever possible. We like to check out vegan festivals and towards the end of our time in the UK, there was the Stourbridge Vegan Fair.
We found the Got No Beef stall and tried their burgers which were pretty good. We also had some tiramisu from one of the stalls called Vegan Sweet Tooth London. They had some amazing looking cakes.
Since we stayed until the end we ended up getting some vegan donuts really cheap. At the end of the fair, some of the booths started selling off their food at a discount. Back at our friend's place, we made our favourite vegan mac and cheese recipe. It uses cashews, miso and nutritional yeast. It is soooooo good.
One of our friends came to visit us on his way up to Scotland and we stopped by the Chemistry Cafe for brunch. They had a …

Travel Diary:
We had an excellent time in the UK staying with our friend. It was time for us to leave and our friend was nice enough to drive us to the airport, which was not close by.

This month we went to Victoria again for some personal errands and did some Christmas shopping. While we were there we tried out Fern Bakery for their vegan food. Everything we tried was excellent. It's difficult to take professional photos of food but trust us, it was all excellent. We had the pepperoni panini, the cheeseburger mac and cheese, and a selection of desserts.

This month our vegan guide is for Paris. We had a great time in Paris checking out the sights and eating at a few different vegan restaurants. (Remember we share a new Vegan Guide the second Sunday of every month).  We continued baking up a storm with more muffins. These were chocolate chip banana muffins. They were delicious.
