If you’re one of the record number of people who have signed up for Veganuary this month, why not sample the delicious menu on offer at the College’s Adams Restaurant on Wednesday 16th January.

The College’s commercial training restaurant, based in The Adams Building in The Lace Market, will join a host of eateries across the country this January, in support of Veganuary — the month-long pledge to follow a plant-based diet to reduce the suffering of animals, help the planet and improve personal health.

The restaurant and its talented trainee chefs hope to inspire diners with three tasty vegan courses, priced at just £16.95 per person, including: Vietnamese rice paper rolls, chilli soy dipping sauce; beetroot soup with parsley oil and sourdough croutons; wasabi peanut crusted tofu, soba noodles, bok choi, miso broth; wild mushroom and pea risotto; and chocolate brownie; lemon and blueberry cheesecake or spiced poached pear for dessert. 

The Veganuary pledge is taking the world by storm, with over 250,000 people in 193 countries taking part since 2014. Simon Winch, Veganuary CEO, says: 

Research shows that health is now the second biggest driver for so many people going vegan. More and more people are ditching animal products in order to combat specific health problems. Others report general improvements in energy and vitality, and we often hear Veganuary participants telling us they’ve never felt better’. 

Stories of successful vegan athletes and sports stars are on the increase, and plant-based living is regularly profiled in health and wellness publications. The British 

Dietetic Association agrees, saying that well-planned vegan diets can support healthy living in people of all ages.
