A Very Vegan Christmas - the prequel

Join me (Fat Gay Vegan) as I take over The Gallery Cafe for a (second) night of festive food, stellar company and vegan merriment. The original A Very Vegan Christmas sold out incredibly quickly and I have been inundated with requests for a second night. This additional Christmas dinner is actually taking place on the night before the original, hence it is being called the prequel!

On Thursday December 12, 2013 from 7pm, this east London eatery will be closed to the public for a private vegan Christmas dinner that you will not want to miss.

Attendees will be welcomed with a warm cup of mulled wine before being served a delicious 3 course dinner directly to their table. The menu for the evening is mouth watering:

Welcome drink - cup of homemade mulled wine

Starter - wild mushroom pate served with toasted sourdough bread, locally sourced chutney and a salad garnish

Main - homemade nut roast A walnut and brazil nut roast served with roast potatoes, glazed root vegetables, seasonal greens, cranberry stuffing and a good glug of gravy

Dessert - mince pie served with brandy cream

Entry to the event is for ticket holders only. The restaurant will be closed to the public for the evening. YOU MUST BUY A TICKET TO ATTEND - AN RSVP IS NOT ENOUGH!  

All food is included in the price. Additional drinks including vegan beer, wine and cider can be purchased throughout the evening at additional cost.

    Ian and Joseph are the latest people to buy tickets for this event. We still have space so it would be great to more Meetup people along!

      Oh... and I wanted to say we have sold 25 tickets for this meal but only 16 meetup people say they are attending. That means new people to meet, hopefully!

    Hello, my brother Ben needs to sell his ticket for the meal on Friday 13th, if anyone fancies going? His number is 07506 844013. Kari x

    blasphemy, ALL Christmas music is magical!! I'll suggest Home Alone soundtracks galore.. gets me every time!
    And although not trashy (so if you don't use it, just have a listen because it's beautiful)- Pink Martini - Joy to the World- gives a warm glow! 'Hanson-Snowed in' and 'Glee christmas special' have some corkers too! Especially the duet of 'baby it's cold outside' between kurt and blaine! OOhh.... are we dressing festive?

    Just a reminder that I won't be selling tickets on the night. You need to pre-book via the link above. Also, any requests for particularly bad Xmas music? The cafe have asked me to put together a playlist of music and I thought I might go down the trashy Christmas route. What do you think?!

    • elizabeth cameron j.

      Hi Sean, I am the only gluten and alcohol free one, my friend is normal vegan. I vote for trashy music. Yeh!

      December 5, 2013

  • elizabeth cameron j.

    Dear Sean, I met you tonight. I am a non-alcohol, and non-gluten dinner guest. Hope that's okay. See you then! Elizabeth

      Hi Elizabeth. I noticed you bought two tickets, are they both alcohol and gluten free meals?

      December 5, 2013

  • Mark S.

    Very disappointed that we missed out on the first date and then this one we're booked to see a panto at the Battersea Barge ('Pilates in the Caribbean'!). Oh well, next year. Have a fantastic time! p.s. And yes, great job at the Vegan festival on Saturday.

      Hi Mark. There is a fellow trying to sell his two tickets for Friday night on Facebook. Would you like me to put you in touch?

      November 26, 2013

    • Mark S.

      Hi Sean, thanks for the message. Let me check with Phil as to whether we are still both free that night. We're away at the moment, so will come back to you before the end of the day once we've checked diaries.

  • Tracey

    This sounds great! Any alternative to the mulled wine and brandy cream for those of us who can't/don't want to ingest alcohol?

    Many Thanks

    P.S. well done for the vegan festival on the weekend! You and Rob do a stellar job x

      Hey Tracey. The chef has said they will accommodate alcohol-free requests. You just need to email me once you have booked and let me know how many special requests and who they are for. Hope to see you there!
