My Sister-in-law Gemma went to a Vegan Wine and Cheese night last week and agreed to tell us all about it…
“I saw a “Free Vegan Wine and Cheese”event by plantbsd infused posted online and thought i would pop along and check it out with a couple of friends from work.
It was held at a private members club in Bethnal Green which I hadn’t heard of before. It was a indoor event with eight vendors.
We were excited to check out the cheese board from “Mouse’s favourites” which did not disappoint, the stand out cheeses were the classic camembert and the aged dulse. We all agreed that we would have to get this for our own Christmas cheese board.
Two of us tried out the wine on offer which was of a great quality, albeit a little pricey for such a small cup.
Next we tried two different creole wraps from Rainforest Creations. They specialise in Caribbean raw ingredients and both were super tasty and a nice healthy option.
My friend tried the curry plate from Rouge Vegan and we loved the jerk jackfruit curry.
To finish up we could not miss out on the options Black Milq had to offer.
Their ice cream base is a mix of cashew and coconut milks which give them there distinct flavour and texture.
We tried the dark chocolate and peanut in a cone and cookie sandwich and the black sesame. All flavours were amazing and I would definitely recommend checking them out online and at other events.
As it was advertised as a cheese and wine event we felt that was a little misleading as there was only one of each vendor. There could have been more vendors offering these exact things and perhaps the option to buy the cheese we loved so much on the night.
Overall the event had a great vibe, the food options were great and a little different to what I have seen at other food events before.
Well that sounds great. Yes I do think it would have been a good idea to be able to buy the cheeses you tried on the night. A missed opportunity there.
Would you love a cheese and wine evening? Have you tried any of the vendors featured? Let me know in the comments below.
