Vegan December Holidays

Then last year were spent it in New Orleans. And now this year, NYC. It spawned from one of those silly ideas where you think… where is the biggest party – where it the place people go to ring in the new year?

(un)Traditional British Roast Supper with Jacob Saphra

See the event on facebook Guest Chef Jacob Saphra will be cooking up a vegan british roast supper. The traditional British roast dinner is usually served on Sunday’s after mass and is the quintessence of British pub fare. Across the British Isles, pubs and restaurants battle for boasting rights as to who serves the best roast, and any enthusiast will tell you that no weekend is complete without one. Nowadays vegetarians and vegans are also in the game, with inventive combinations every bit as satisfying and delicious as the old-school classics. Chef Jacob Saphra brings his unique twist to this UK tradition. It comes with all the favourite sides: fluffy Yorkshire puddings, rich mushroom gravy, caramelised roasted root vegetables, herbed peas, and features one of Jacob’s signature dishes, a hearty vegan cashew-walnut roast, in place of the usual beef. $12 (tax-in) —– Jacob Saphra is the owner/chef at Brixton Grill, an all-vegan barbecue stand at Dufferin Grove market running every Thursday from 3-7. Learn more about Drop-In Dinners at the Depanneur.
