The month of vegan food blogging is here again: VeganMoFo will be on for the whole of September and I’m getting excited to see people’s quirky, inventive themes, beautiful food styling and witty commentary. I love seeing the stuff folks come up with, and it’s a great challenge too! Even if you’re not vegan, it’s a great opportunity to try out new vegan food and show off what you can make or find.
Of course, not everyone will produce spectacular food that has been photographed beautifully. Witness my first item.
Can you guess what it is? That’s right! Tiger bread!!
No? You think it’s more of a lumpy burnt-looking possibly-a-cat? Yeah, well the only way is up from here, my friends!
It puzzles me when people don’t understand why vegans or vegetarians would want to eat fake meat. I think anyone who has been veg*n for any length of time gets pretty tired of explaining that it’s not the taste most of us didn’t like, it’s the idea of something having to have gone through pain and death to get to our plates, so I thought I’d take the ‘eating fake animals’ thing to the extreme this MoFo and cover all the tasty animals we can eat that aren’t really animals at all.
One small hitch is that I’ve got about 8 ideas at the moment (and the goal of MoFo is to post at least 20 times in the month), so expect it to get pretty tenuous towards the end! Or I may just give up and start posting pictures of sandwiches. The above abomination came about because I only realised when I came to stripe-up my tiger-patterned pizza that I didn’t have any olives or in fact anything dark and savoury so I just left the tomato-paste and turmeric orange base on, thinking I could go out and get some olives to top it once it was baked. Then I burnt it. Like I say, it can only get better from here!
