CookDaily, run by King Cook, opened in 2015 with no more than couple of seats and a passion for vegan cooking. Bringing his Laotian heritage to the menu and music industry inroads with JME, Skepta and more amongst the fans, CookDaily’s incredible offerings led the The Guardian to dub him “the chef who’s getting young Londoners to love vegan food”.
Alongside King and CookDaily, attendees can expect flavour explosions from London’s best, featuring Biff’s Jack Shack, vegan fast food fried chicken-shop pioneers Temple of Seitan, vegan doner kebabs What The Pitta plus the trail-blaizing Indian cuisine from Spice Box and many more prized traders cooking plant based burgers, bowls and cakes and much more.
DJ sets come courtest of #VGANG from Ethics with a wealth of vegan beers and cocktails on offer to get the party started. Meanwhile ‘Vegan Nights’ will showcase the latest issue of plant based culture staple Bright Zine, an ethical zine for ethical people, with the Vegan Queens behind the mag will be hanging out and chatting vegan living throughout the evening.
