Vegfest Highlight: Vegan Cream Cakes

JP Turner Vegan Cream Cakes are Dairy-Free and Egg-Free

Amazing vegan cream buns from @JPTurnerFoods were the star of #VegfestLondon

We spoke to them about their cream and whether they would make an appearance at future vegan events. The cream is apparently soya based and they spent some time developing it to stay whipped at room temperature. The cream is piped from one of those catering cream dispensers (the ones charged with nitrous oxide cartridges). JPT were certainly very generous with the whipped cream too:

VegFest London: Day Two

Yep #vegfestlondon day 2 begins by beating the queue at The Mighty Fork hot dog stall. If yesterday is anything to go by, they'll sell out by early afternoon. The queue at their stall is already snaking, 5 minutes after the doors opened..

We went for the massive Big Chili hot dog in which the wiener is topped with veggie chilli (with soy mince), chillies and mustard. Mmm.

VegFest Bristol 2012: Review

Is VegFest Bristol the world's biggest vegan festival? Let's throw some numbers around and see what sticks: 3 days long, over 100 stalls, around 50 live shows and over 25,000 visitors through the gates. That's pretty impressive for a vegan event.

What matters more than numbers is that thousands of people, vegan or not (yet) walked away from a weekend in Bristol with a fantastic impression of what it's like to be vegan - it's all eating, drinking, dancing and getting sunburnt!

This was a truly great festival and thanks must go to the organisers and also to the sponsors (Redwood Foods) who gave us all of this for free this year. The weather certainly helped, but with a robust programme, a great venue and some big name headline acts, success was assured. Here's our round up of VegFest Bristol 2012 on veganoo:
