Weekend life: Salon Bio & Co

Last Saturday, on a very wet and chilly morning, we headed to Metz to visit the organic fair Salon Bio & Co.

We regularly shop at organic stores when possible, but this was my first visit to an organic fair in a very long time. What really surprised me was the abundance of Vegan or Vegan-friendly booths: Sea Shepherd Conservation Society, Association Végétarienne de France, Rassemblement pour une France sans Chasse (RAC) just to mention a few.

There were lots of ateliers and conferences, cooking demonstrations, and even a delicious 100% Vegan food corner held by Cuit Lu Cru (with Vegan and gluten-free wraps and burgers, and the most delicious RAW Vegan desserts and cakes I’ve ever seen & eaten), and lots more.

This amazing slice of raw Vegan cake is called Banacao, made with bananas and raw cacao powder. The texture and flavor were to die for. No kidding. Fabien instead got a slice of pâtisserie Citron Coco, made with lemons and coconut.

Naturally, we brought home lots of organic goodies from local brands and this is the result of my mini Vegan haul: hemp seeds and hemp seed oil by Les Noces de K.na; bicarbonate and sodium percarbonate to make my own detergents (recipes coming soon) + dried stinging nettle by Bicarbonate Ortie une amie; lots and lots of Vegan sauces including Vegan mayo from Les Produits de la Vie; and some wonderful handmade soaps by Savonnerie artisanale du Val d’Argent ARGASOL.
