I'm having a pretty relaxing Saturday today, it's 1.30, I'm still in my pyjamas & I'm munching on some rye sourdough toast topped with peanut butter & banana. Yum! I think most of the day will be spent grazing on leftovers, reading blogs, pulling the coming weeks cookbooks out of the hat & writing many lists. I love lists!
The Brighton & Hove Food Festival took place here during September & the event came to a close with a Sussex & The World Food Market. Nick & I decided to cycle down to Hove lawns to see if there'd be any vegan eats on offer & we were pretty optimistic because Brighton's a pretty vegan friendly city.
First we stumbled upon Moshi Moshi's stand. This local vegan friendly sushi restaurant had a vegan chicken curry on offer alongside a mixed vegan sushi box.
The box of maki rolls contained 2 avocado, 2 cucumber, 1 inari tofu, celery, red radish, lettuce & campio, 1 vegan cheese & sun blushed tomato and 1 tofu, mizuna, sun blushed tomato, red onion & cucumber. I loved this mixed box. I'm not really a celery fan so I wouldn't ever have picked that maki roll off of their menu but it was probably my favourite of the bunch & I'll definitely be ordering it next time I visit.
There was only one entirely vegan stand at the festival run by local company Titbits Catering. They had both sweet & savoury items & we picked up a few things to take to eat on the beach.
We had a Sausage Roll which was flavoured with rosemary.
It was really tasty but the real star of the show was the Apple & Blackberry Crumble Tart.
This was SO good & its also kind of a genius idea. I love crumble & this is a fantastic way to make it portable. This crumble was made from apples from the ladies of Titbits' gardens too which made it extra special. We also picked up a couple of chocolate chip cookies, who could resist them at 80p each?
These were great melt in your mouth cookies & I loved that they were filled with a good amount of chocolate chips.
I love Brighton in the summer & cycling around town & eating delicious food was definitely a great way to enjoy one of the last warm days of 2011.
I'll be back tomorrow for Football Food Sunday, see ya then!
