A Very Vegan Christmas

THIS EVENT HAS SOLD OUT. THERE IS NO WAITLIST.

A SECOND XMAS DINNER IS TAKING PLACE THE NIGHT BEFORE: 

http://www.meetup.com/londonvegan/events/150382892/


Join me as I take over The Gallery Cafe for a night of festive food, stellar company and vegan drinks.

On Friday December 13, 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. If you RSVP on this page, you must buy a ticket to secure your place.

All food is included in the price of £25 plus booking fee. Additional drinks including vegan beer, wine and cider can be purchased throughout the evening at additional cost.

Buy tickets from here: A Very Vegan Christmas

Tickets cannot be refunded but of course you can privately sell your place in the case your plans change.

    Great: warm welcome, chilled out atmosphere & good company...I enjoyed this tasty meal whose highlight, in my opinion, was the mince pie with brandy cream. I had never tasted this traditional dessert before; i was simply very pleasantly surprised. I wish i had had another one! Thanks again to the hosts and the personnel of the Gallery Cafe.

    Great, lovely Christmas do. Food was really really good (I think we should start a campaign to get them to put the mushroom pate on to the regular menu!). As always, thank you to Sean and Josh for being the hosts with the most

    All the food was amazing. Especially liked the mushroom paté, the nut roast, the greens, and the mince pie with cream. I need to learn how to make a nut roast from scratch. Thank you for organizing. Best Christmas meal food ever, not having to make it and good company, and no turkey in sight either.

    As this event sold out so quickly, I was considering running a second sitting on the night before. Would anyone be interested if I did this?

      I Defiantly would!! Depending on the time, if I can make straight after work! How exciting, a glimmer of hope!

    Opps, no ticket for me.
    I was low on funds and too slow.

    Is there any possibility I can buy a ticket, and pay for it via a bank transfer? As On friday night- on route to tibets, the hole in teh wall swallowed my card, for no reason!! and I'm still waiting for my replacement! If not, I'll just have my fingers crossed that I'll get in in time before they all go!

    My usual question: Is it likely that the roast/gravy/puds will be Gluten Free?

    1 · October 15, 2013

    • A former member
      A former member

      For a gluten-free option they can provide a gluten free bread or cracker for a starter. They can make a gluten free gravy alternative and gluten free main alternative of a sweet potato, sage and date cabbage parcel.

      For dessert you would get a gluten free chocolate brownie.
      You would need to let me know once you book a ticket so I can inform the chef.

      October 25, 2013

      Also, the food will be cooked next to food with gluten so it would not be suitable for a severe gluten intolerance.

    I put yes but I think I am going to have to say no as I cant eat nuts!

      I can get a non nut meal made for you if you buy a ticket but it will still be made in the same kitchen. Not suitable for a sever allergy.

    Just a reminder that you need to buy tickets in advance. I know I am going on about this but 10 of the 50 tickets have already sold and some of them are to non-Meetup people. We won't have enough tickets for everyone who wants to attend so do it early if you can.

    October 17, 2013

    I had a message asking if people can pay on the night, so I thought I would post the answer for everyone to see. The restaurant have decided not to take any bookings for this meal apart from pre-paid tickets online. This event has been advertised on other pages and via the restaurant mailing list, so I imagine the demand will be high. If you are planning on attending, please don't leave booking a ticket until the last minute.

    A vegan Christmas meal for lots of people sounds good to me. I don't know what the price will be but have provisionally said yes.
