A vegan street food party
After two years of planning, we’re thrilled to have finally thrown our first ever fully vegan street food party in association with community kitchen Made in Hackney. Extraveganza saw the full scope of the thriving vegan scene showcased at Dinerama on Wednesday 23 January.
Eleven of London’s trailblazing traders produced two vegan dishes, one of which was made exclusively for the evening. The unmissable line-up celebrated all globe-spanning interpretations of vegan cooking, from fine dining restaurants to stars of our street food arenas.
There was a very special collaboration between Dinerama regulars Club Mexicana and Temper’s Neil Rankin, who conjured up a vegan version of his much-Instagrammed cheeseburger taco.
Alexis Gauthier, London’s only vegan chef to have held a Michelin star, made his maiden voyage into the world of street food, 21 years after he became the first chef in London to introduce a vegetable tasting menu.
Honest Burgers appeared at a vegan event for the first time, serving the game-changing Beyond Meat patty – packed with 20g of plant-based protein – which went through seven years of testing to look, cook and taste like beef.
Plus there was the usual array of international street food, including Venezuelan arepa masters Petare, Chinese flavours from Phung Kay Vegan, What the Fattoush’s Palestinian mezze and Yum Bun’s steamed buns.
Death By Pizza served up wood-fired pizza, Root & Coal fired up the barbecue, Chin Chin Labs took care of dessert, and there was vegan cheese plates from Kinda Co.
All of the money raised went to Made In Hackney (@madeinhackney) and supporting their mission to help people eat healthy, affordable food that’s good for people and planet.
