London Vegan Potluck

Hosted by Fat Gay Vegan :)  >> Come one, come all to the friendliest food event in London. On the first Wednesday of each month, vegans and vegan-friendlies gather in a celebration of fabulous food in a very cool location.

Have you got an interesting vegan recipe you’ve been keen to try? Do you want to impress other vegans with your superb cooking skills? Would you like to eat delicious food made by fellow London vegans?

If you answered “Yes! Oh please, yes!” to any or all of the above questions, London Vegan Potluck needs you.

Entry fee: £1

I tend to arrive at the venue by 6.30pm, though it's advisable to arrive a bit earlier to get your dish down before Sean lets everyone loose at around 6.15/20, to start filling their plates/eating! Whenever you arrive, (some people do arrive at 7, which is fine, but we do need to leave bang on 8pm, ideally a few minutes before hand) if you're new to the group and/or this event, don't be scared/worried--everyone is very friendly, so let people know you're new and get talking about the dish you made, etc! Do come and find me; check out my photo on my profile, (I have long aurburn hair, I wear black rimmed glasses and tend to wear purple/black, etc), or by the plates trolly, ask Sean, Josh or Kip where I am. I'll be happy to introduce you to my friends and later, if you are up for the pub, do follow us to The Citie of Yorke (High Holborn, a minute walk from Chancery Lane Tube, near Grays Inn Road,) for drinking and socializing till 11pm-ish! :)

The venue is a spacious room provided to us by Syracuse University London Program. The potluck is in the basement auditorium, which is large enough to hold 100+ potluckers and we are extremely grateful to the University. The space is fantastic and the perfect home for our monthly event. You won’t be disappointed!

The venue is a 3 minute walk from Holborn Underground Station (Piccadilly and Central Lines) and is serviced by a massive number of bus routes (map available here as a PDF).

On arrival at Faraday House, the friendly reception staff will welcome you and point you in the direction of the potluck.

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. Our event requires potluckers to provide an ingredients list with their dish as well as utensils to serve it with if required and a plate or dish to serve it on. This is a helpful resource if you are unfamiliar with hidden animal ingredients in food.

Who can attend? Simple answer: anyone who brings homemade food. If you want to share food you have made and eat food others have made, you are a perfect candidate for the London Vegan Potluck. You just need to RSVP. We need to keep track of numbers for plate/cutlery purposes. YOU MUST BRING HOMEMADE FOOD IF YOU WISH TO TAKE PART. ONE DISH PER PERSON IS A REQUIREMENT. TWO PEOPLE CANNOT ATTEND WITH ONE DISH.

What about drinks? You cannot bring drinks instead of food! Any drinks you bring must be in addition to food you have made yourself. Please make sure any alcohol you bring is vegan. Barnivore is a good resource for checking vegan alcohol. In addition, Sainsbury’s, The Cooperative and Marks & Spencers supermarkets advise on the label whether their alcohol is suitable for vegans. Bring cups for serving if you bring drinks!

Start planning your dish. Be bold and creative. Be simple and dependable. Either way, cook to impress. Spread news of the potluck far and wide. We have a huge amount of potluckers every month and this event is set to be just as spectacular.

You can also RSVP on the Facebook event page and invite non-Meetup friends.

See you all at London Vegan Potluck!

All the best, bye for now, Jess :)

    Hi Potluckers! :) Lovely night, as ever! So many fantastic dishes! I'd just like to say, I know most of us are pretty good re; cleaning up after ourselves, but I did notice about 4 or so plates just left on window sils, etc. It would be lovely if we could all just keep an eye on stuff, it would help out Sean so there's not so much to worry about at the end of the evening; thanks. :) Also, I 'rescued' 2 serving spoons from being binned in the clean up; who brought along two long-ish metal spoons with their dish? If you are missing two spoons, do email me or comment here & I can get them back to you at Drinks or the next Potluck; or if you don't miss them, I'll keep them, if that's ok! :)
    All the best, Jess :)

    Had a fabulous time last night! Beautiful food, beautiful people! I hope you enjoyed the raw chilli, a few people were asking for the recipe, I put all of my raw recipes on my facebook page RAWWWSOME and for the less adventurous chefs, I sell everything through my market stall in Camden. Did anyone get the recipe for the raw macaroons?

      Thank-you for your wonderful raw chilli Steph .There was so much fantastic food but for me your raw chilli was the star of the show ( so to speak).
