Meat Free in Manchester is free to attend and everyone is welcome - foodies, die hard meat eaters, the veggie-curious and, of course, vegetarians. Get tips and hints from the experts in the professional cookery theatre. Rose Elliot, the renowned Queen of vegetarian cookery, will be demonstrating, alongside Alex Connell, Principal Tutor from the Cordon Vert cookery school. Across the square will be our Banger Bonanza featuring sausage related activities, from tastings and relish making to Banger Races. In between the sausage silliness there’ll be smoothie bikes, giant card games, free samples, information and food stalls. There’ll also be a visit from Mr Bloom and watch out for the Vegetable Nannies.
Meat Free in Manchester launches National Vegetarian Week 21-27 May. To help everyone focus, this year’s extravaganza of veggie vitality will celebrate the most important meal of the day – breakfast. An essential part of everyone’s day whether you are veggie or not.
Now in its twentieth year National Vegetarian Week (NVW) is the annual awareness-raising campaign promoting inspirational vegetarian food and the benefits of a meat-free lifestyle. Everyone is welcome and encouraged to get involved in NVW and you don’t have to be a devotee of breakfasts. Restaurants, schools, libraries, caterers, shops, manufacturers and individuals can find out more at www.nationalvegetarianweek.org or call 0161 925 2000.
