Vegan Peasant Join the #FBC14 StrEAT Party

For a conference that started out with all things food, the quality and range of the tastings at FBC has always been a point of pride.  This year, #FBC14 has expanded to include travel, tech, lifestyle and fitness bloggers, but we are definitely keeping the commitment to amazing and innovative food at our StrEAT Party and are delighted to announce Vegan Peasant Catering! 

Vegan PeasantWe’re excited to be welcoming the creative foodies at Vegan Peasant this year! 

So tell us more!

We’re Diana and Adrian and we’re Vegan Peasant Catering (@veganpeasant)

What can FBC attendees expect from you at the event?

FBC attendees can expect the most creative canapés offering in the UK if not the world. For instance we created the Kimchi Potato Rösti with Mayo and Nori canapé for a bride who had spent a year teaching English in South Korea.  We provide our customers with well thought out and balanced menus, but we are happy to create bespoke items and we love a challenge.  As we are an event caterer, you can get in touch with us through the website via email or by placing a call.

Tell us about about what you offer, why you want to take part in FBC and where you see your set up growing

We are a vegan catering company that specialises in plant-based cuisine. As far as I know there is no other caterer offering a similar type service. I think our presence will be very beneficial to the food blogger connect community especially if thier first exposure to vegan food has been the stereotype of bland, boring and brown. Our aim is to present to the community the most delicious and creative canapés and bowl foods that are inclusive and can be enjoyed by everyone attending Food Blogger Connect!!

You can read all about our story here.  In about a year’s time we expect to move into a new kitchen. We expect to continue catering events and making relationships with some of London’s finest venues.

What other events do you take part in throughout the year?

We ran a supper club two years ago and we just started a new series called Saporous Suppers.

Do you enjoy working with bloggers?

Yes, we have an event coming up next month that is collaboration with vegan blogger @FatGayVegan. Our supper is an inspired Caribbean multi-course meal. It’s called Around the World with FGV; it takes place on 7th March and was the first dinner to sell-out.

Do you have a blog?

We have a blog that’s part of our website. You can view it here.  Social media especially twitter has been great for keeping the conversation going. Food and other bloggers often cc me in on happenings that I probably wouldn’t be aware of as some weeks I don’t have the necessary time to listen in. Some of my favorite bloggers are @fatgayvegan @wtfveganfood @OneGreenPlanet @FoodTravelCo

If you could cook for anyone, who would it be and why?

Probably Julia Child because of this quote: “People who love to eat are always the best people.” —Julia Child

If you could tell people to eat one thing more often, what would it be and why?

Just one thing – that ‘s hard, but as I had a falafel for lunch that’s what I’m going to recommend. But it’s got to be a very good falafel so if you’re in Soho Maoz and in Hackney the falafels from Finch Café!

How can a successful restaurant or eatery grow and expand without losing it’s heart and soul and staying true to its food and ethos- any examples of any one who has achieved this?

Once you have to answer to shareholders or investors profit becomes the overriding value so it makes it hard to maintain the other values that you once held dear. I think terre á terre, a vegetarian restaurant based in Brighton that’s been at it for 20 years is a great example.
