World Vegan Month - A Celebration of Sustainable Food at Fitzbillies

Take a culinary tour of the best sustainable produce from around Cambridge. Rosie Sykes (Fitzbillies’ first-class chef) will introduce the feast, which she has specially designed for this launch event.

A delicious three course set menu will be served, with a vegan alternative available.

Tickets are £33 per head and are available through Cambridge Carbon Footprint only (https://ccf-fitzbillies.eventbrite.co.uk/).

This event is the official launch of our Food for a Greener Future campaign: A collection of talks, challenges and films, culminating with a conference in February. For moer info see www.foodforagreenerfuture.org

Challenge your assumptions about sustainable eating (and your tastebuds too!)

    Sorry, Thursday evenings clash with drop-in meditation at the Buddhist centre, but I'll try to make it along to something soon!

    Nice idea, but why is the vegan option an alternative? The food is supposed to all be "locally sourced" but unless the feedstuffs are also all locally grown or even just UK grown rather than imported it is scarcely sustainable.

      I will pass your comment on, Vanessa, thanks for that and I do agree.

      Hey Vanessa,
      I've been helping to organise the feast, and I reckon your comment is spot on!
      But I guess, I also think there's a balance to be struck for people moving from a conventional diet to a sustainable one.

      In organising this event I'm trying to promote sustainable ways of eating to people who are interested, or curious
      about eating locally, but might not 'identify' with a vegan menu (or might not know what that is) and so might
      be deterred from coming along and finding out more.

      So I agree with your point, but I hope that in offering a variety of avenues to people to approach lifestyle changes,
      that our work will make it easier for all different people to find their way to a low carbon lifestyle. (and then maybe they
      will be comfy identifying with a vegan menu!)
