This weekend fun for all the family as Bristol plays host to the finale of National Vegetarian Week and celebrates the 10th anniversary birthday of  the award winning Vegfest UK that started as The Bristol vegan Fayre and is now one of the biggest in the world. Vegfest UK now happens 3 times a year in Brighton, London and Bristol.

For the children there’s loads to do with ethical pirates of the carob bean (Capt  James Tea Cook) and cookery workshops, kitchen science experiments with food, a shake-a-bike to make fruit smoothies, face painting, a kids craft tent by Junkfish, stories,  circus stuff, hoolahoop lessons with a girl nominated the sexiest vegan in the UK in the Peta next door neighbour awards, dancers, singing and a pirate treasure trail.

BBC nutritionist Yvonne Bishop-Weston will be there to answer questions about kids and family nutrition – see the programme at

Only a couple of shiny coins to get in even for adults. Be there or be wishing you had been.

See you there?


Now that’s what I call cooking the books!

Actually though it looks like I have a new book out it’s just a paperback version of the old one. Good timing for a reprint though World Vegan Day / One World Day – November 1st
