    Vegan potluck

    The concept is simple: each participant brings a food contribution (3 or 4 portions) containing no animal ingredients (no meat, fish, egg, milk, cheese, butter, honey, animal stock…). This can be a salad, a soup, a beverage, a dessert, fruits, vegetables, snacks… (Note that alcohol isn’t allowed during the event).

    Last year, 150 people attended the event, making a fantastic vegan buffet.

    Notes for a successful event

    • We don’t have dishes, so everyone have to bring plates and cutlery.
    • Don’t forget to bring the list of ingredients, and why not the recipe! Please bring a serving spoon for your dish.
