I found this pub (http://www.meetup.com/OxfordVeg/venue/23509073/?fromMV=yes) recently opened. The chef's daughter is a vegan and the owner is a vegaholic, she said she'd be more than happy if you rang them or emailed ([masked]) to put a whole veggie menu together. They have veggie options anyway. I really advise a meal and meeting here, its a really nice place (https://plus.google.com/101085097517150269134/about) ;-) The new owners are Helen (pictured right) and Cass Hazlewood
Hi everybody, I hope you're all having a fab Valentines weekend. I'd like to draw your attention to this free event which anyone who really loves good quality food should attend. Eating in season doesn't get any better than this. If you really embrace it, you could save hugely on your food bills. Anyone who already grows their own veg/fruit has a double advantage. Foraging for your dinner will make you see the world with new eyes.Living in the countryside has lots of advantages however you can still find all these edible treasures in town too, especially your back garden, look out for things like, nettles, wild chives, goose grass, dandelions, burdock, plantain and wild garlic. Spring is the start of the foraging year. I made a promise to myself last year that I've give foraging a go this year. That's why I'd like to invite you all to try it. It’s worth remembering that wild food tastes totally different to domesticated varieties. We've all been conditioned to buy the same food year in year out which in my opinion is quite boring. That's why any food adventurists will love foraging. My husband and I in the past have harvested, wild strawberries, wild cherries, damsons, cherry plums, plantain, wild sorrel, chives etc but that was before I got into this lifestyle. Now that I look at food through a new set of glasses I'd like to forage and see if I can really enjoy wild food. If this is something you might be interested in please let me know. I'll confirm the dates and venue in the coming weeks.
