London Vegan Potluck

London Vegan Potluck is back for another monthly night. The potluck takes place on the first Wednesday of every month and has been running for almost 2 years. The potluck is in our snappy location in Central London just off High Holborn.

How does it work? What is a potluck? A potluck is an event where like-minded people get together to share homemade food, swap recipes, make friends and talk about topics that interest them.

What is a vegan potluck? It is the same as a potluck but with vegan food! There is no dairy, meat, honey or eggs. The food can be sweet or savoury and our event requires potluckers to provide an ingredients list with their dish as well as utensils to serve it and a plate or bowl to present it on.

Come along for a fabulous night of meeting without meat. If you have friends you would like to invite who are not on Meetup, RSVP are also accepted via the Facebook event page and the Fat Gay Vegan website.

PLEASE NOTE: We are now asking for a £1 donation from each attendee. There are costs and time associated with running the potluck, including occasional security hire costs. In the past this has been somewhat covered by raffles. The majority of costs have come from the organiser's pockets. Your donation will help potluck remain at this wonderful location.

    A big thank you to everyone who paid the donation tonight. About half the attendees paid the donation so hopefully next time that will increase LOL. Other than that... it was a lovely night with so much delicious food. We had 94 people in and a lot of food on the dessert table!

    I really enjoyed the salad with cranberries and cabbage, which was a wonderful combination. There was some smoky lentils in a deep pot that was also spectacular.

    As usual, the sweets were fab. The okara chocolate cake and the lemon mousse cupcakes were perfection!

    Glad there was more tables to put food on this month. I had a great time.

    Please note: I have to now ask for a £1 donation from every attendee to help cover costs. There are 3 months of this year where I have needed to pay the building for security as they would otherwise be closed. As I have said above, raffles and such have contributed to a few of these costs but the majority comes from my pocket.

      Thanks Amanda. £1 should be fine as some months I don't have to pay for security so it will all even out.

    To all those beautiful people that were going to bring me clothes donations this evening..please don't. I might not be able to make it due to work commitments. Thank you xxx

    Sorry, my 'maybe' has to become a 'no', as I'll no longer be up in town. Still investigating those possible alternative venues...

    More than 90 people have RSVPd. 90! Wear your eating trousers.

    Just a reminder of a few things. I am now asking for a £1 donation from each attendee. Please bring your own serving utensils and a plate/bowl to serve your dish on. Please, please, PLEASE only take one plate and one fork at the event to eat with. Do not take a fork to put in your dish for serving. If you need a knife or spoons or cups for serving your dish, you need to bring them.

    Remember we have to be out at 8pm so be early. The earlier you are, the more food choices you get! Remember that a group of three people can't show up with one small dish. Everyone needs to contribute. If bringing drinks, check they are vegan!

    See you all tomorrow!

    Just becoming a vegan and will be great to meet like-minded people and get inspired :)) I am a freshie!

    I thought it might be a good idea to agree on the post potluck pub in advance, for those who fancy a cheeky one (or more) afterwards. Last month, we went to the Cittie of Yorke, and I suggest we go back again this month. It's a Sam Smith's, so plenty of vegan beers. And they had a decent amount of space. (Plus no arsey landlord, for those who remember our previous watering hole!) All welcome. Here's a map: http://goo.gl/maps/ItBUa­

    I thought the potluck was going to be at a new location? Is it still at Faraday House in March??

    February 17, 2013

    • Robb

      Are you getting confused with drinks? I didn't think the potluck was moving...

      February 17, 2013

    • Jessica

      Oh ok - I guess I was getting mixed up. Heading off to vegan drinks now so hoping that hasn't relocated! I see it still says Tibits so we'll see!
