3:00 - Lilian Nassuna Muirhead - Vegan Entertaining
This would incorporate teaching about simple but delicious ways of entertaining on a vegan diet. The aim is to get even the non Vegans to find out that vegan food is more interesting than they have always thought! I would go for Vegan Tapas, so that way I have different dishes from different continents.
During the Demo, I would also point out the health benefits of different food. Am aiming to show folk how to flavour and keep vegan food exciting, by using loads of herbs and spices. I would like to do both sweet and savoury tapas dishes all going out at the same time. Some of my dishes are original and inspired by cooking for my vegan friends from around the world. Lastly for desserts I would like to use dried fruits like apricots, cherries to make some interesting puddings.
