Avoiding A Food Feud: Catering For A Vegan Party

However, as soon as you add food to the mix, socializing can become a whole lot harder. Despite the benefits of a vegan lifestyle, it is estimated that only roughly 1% of the global population follow veganism. Therefore, it’s pretty likely that at least some of your nearest and dearest might not share your diet! On the other hand, veganism is a growing movement, with the number of US consumers identifying as vegan growing by 5% since 2014. This makes it more important than...

Vegan Crêpes party (Chandeleur)

Vegan Crêpes party

Hello my beautiful friends! Today in France and some other francophone countries we celebrate “La Chandeleur” (Candelmass). Originally Chandeleur (candlelight festival) was an ancient Pagan and Latin festivity – its etymology is festa candelarum, and it later became a Christian religious festival corresponding to the Presentation of Christ in the Temple. Chandeleur is celebrated exactly 40 days after Christmas. In France, Belgium and parts of Switzerland Chandeleur is still celebrated in some churches on February 2nd, although nowadays it’s best known as “the day of the crêpes”, which is a perfect excuse to eat savory and sweet crêpes as both the main course and dessert for a real Vegan Crêpes...
