World Vegetarian Day and International Vegetarian Week Approaches

By Posted on 2 m read

It’s World Vegetarian Day of Sunday the 1st of October, with International Vegetarian week following. With more and more people making the change to vegetarian whether for environmental, ethical, or health reasons, companies are going that extra mile in order to deliver dishes that are as well thought out and produced as the rest of their menu. It is great to see companies working hard to make vegetarian cuisine the best it can possibly be.

Twins Garden is one such restaurant. About to open in Moscow, twin brothers IVAN and Sergey Berezutskiy are getting ready to open this new restaurant that will offer fresh, local and seasonal ingredients as a part of their amazing menu. Twins Garden will open along with its own 120-acre farm in order to guarantee the supply and the quality of the ingredients used in the restaurant. It is hoped that Twins Garden will be 80-90% self-sufficient.

Orto di LUME is a mesmerizing restaurant that offers guests a grey, green and white oasis in the middle of Milan. A calming restaurant away from the city’s busy streets, with a 160 square meter outdoor area with a large bird cage for guests to sit in. The Executive Chef Taglienti adopts a simple and seasonal approach to cooking that uses a range of innovative techniques that also works to deliver the best vegetarian food possible.

On the 7th November, at the end of international Vegetarian week, the scientific team that worked to create the sell-out Modernist Cuisine trilogy will be releasing the Modernist Bread: The Art and Science. The five volume work is the result of four years’ non-stop research, photography, experiments and writing about baking by the Modernist Cuisine team. The volumes feature 1,500 new recipes with modern twists.  

Jason Atherton’s Pollen Street Social offers veggie and vegan taking menus as an essential part of the restaurant offering. Jason’s first Michelin-starred restaurant uses British grown, seasonal produce in their delicious vegetarian tasting menu.

Meraki at Fitzrovia, Tootoomoo the Pan-Asian restaurant group, La Dame de Pic at the Four Seasons Hotel London. Theo Randall at the Intercontinental, The Vurger Co., Tommi’s Burger Joint and Blanchette in Brick lane and Soho are all working hard to deliver amazing flavour and quality for the vegetarian guests this upcoming World Vegetarian Day and International Vegetarian Week.
