Mission #1: Vegetarian

It’s not what you think – I am not going vegetarian for one whole month. Although, perhaps one day I will discipline myself enough to conquer that challenge.

VEG

Instead, I am starting my first mission, which I’d love you to be part of! I want to focus on certain cuisines each month, to be more adventurous and explore specific genres. Furthermore, I want to involve my friends and readers, by taking blogging further than just reading and commenting online. Read on!

Mission Overview
Part of this month will involve me going out there in search of some great vegetarian places – and I would love recommendations of where to go. Everything from your niche little local, to the inner suburb gems. Even if I can’t make it to those places, I will gladly list them in my “Insiders of the Month” on the righthand column.

During this time, I will post my usual, miscellaneous adventures, but towards the end of August, I will report back to you guys with a series of vegetarian experiences.

Dinner Event
I’d also like to invite you all to a vegetarian dinner, so you have the chance to share this adventure with me. To ensure everyone can comfortably chat to each other, this will be a small dinner event, so spots are limited. Please express interest as soon as possible via email with numbers, so I can organise this adventure!

Why this cuisine?
I hope to do this every month – but the main reason I chose vegetarian as my first mission is because I wanted to raise awareness of an organisation I work for. Well, volunteer for. We are all volunteers, so I’d love your support for this fantastic festival. Please take a read below and I hope you enjoy my first mission!

EFFM2014_LOGOS 150wThe Environmental Film Festival Melbourne is a non-for-profit organisation and annual event, now in its fifth year. This year, the festival will run from the 4th-12th September at Kino Cinemas, 45 Collins St, Melbourne. I’d love for you to come or to check out the website here.

Look out for our program, launching soon this August. Share this with your friends who might be interested, and if you’re feeling generous, you can also support us with a donation here

  1. As an old hippie, the term “vegetarian” can give me the shudders. That word has baggage! Yet I really do like eating and cooking meat-free – and it’s easy to do so wonderfully, cheaply and tastily given the masses of multicultural food we have in Melbourne!

      Yes it’s really quite interesting what can be done with meat-free meals and how delicious they can taste! The multicultural food of Melb is definitely an advantage to to serving vegetarian meals too!
