There is no such thing as planning too far ahead, especially when it comes to food and we recommend you save the date on Sunday, March 8. The Auckland Food Truck Collective has announced some news which is worth some celebrating on its own.
Following the runaway success of last year's event, Auckland is about to host the second Vegan Food Festival. Yup, it's a fully vegan food festival so our plant-based pals can take a break from modifying their food orders to cater to their lifestyle. Auckland is constantly pushing the boundaries when it comes to vegan cuisine and this festival will showcase nothing but the best.
You will find vegan dumplings from The Rolling Pin, epic meatless burgers by Wise Boy Burgers, delicious bites from Vege Bang Bang and Sweet As Bowl just to name a few. In addition to the trucks expect pop up vegan food stalls slinging pies and organic goodness plus sweet treats from Grownup Donuts, Gourmet & Gannet and Kookie Haus.
To make this day even better, The Vegan Food Festival will also host live entertainment, eco stalls and demonstrations so vegans can have a full spree (not sure how the hell to cook with jackfruit? There's a demo for that). Carnivore, omnivore or herbivore, this foodie festival is not to be missed by anyone so be sure to get amongst their $5 tickets online (from Friday February 14) or for those who like to leave things free and easy, $10 on the door. We'll see you there.
