Virtual Lunch Club – Tuesday 23 February 2021
Join Chef Justina via Zoom, for V for Life's next virtual vegan lunch club Tuesday 23 February 2021.
We'll be making and enjoying all things chocolate; chocolate pots, hazelnut truffles and chocolate fudge cake.
Check out the recipes below , buy your ingredients and cook the dishes on the day ready for the Zoom chat at 1pm.
If cooking on the day you'll need to buy or find the following ingredients in your cupboards:
- 75g/2½oz dark vegan chocolate, melted
300g/10½oz silken tofu
1 tbsp cocoa powder
1 tbsp maple syrup
½ a small banana
130g/4½oz roasted hazelnuts
100g/3½oz 70% dark chocolate
2 tbsp maple syrup
1 tbsp unsweetened cocoa powder
½ tsp vanilla extract
1 pinch of salt
Chocolate fudge cake
275g/10oz self-raising flour
50g/2oz cocoa powder
3 tsp baking powder
135ml sunflower oil
Few drops of vanilla essence
50g/2oz vegan margarine
3 tbsp water
250g/9oz icing sugar
2 tbsp cocoa powder
1–2 tbsp hot water (if needed)
Feel free to pick and choose which recipes you make: you don't need to make them all. The simplest and quickest dish to make is the chocolate pots. Or feel free to join us with a cuppa or whatever you're having for lunch that day. Talk cookery, recipes and more, and meet like-minded people from across the UK.
Chef Justina says:
The virtual lunch club is not only a place for food lovers, but a place where like-minded people share their stories and laugh. It cannot be easier to meet friendly faces than in the comfort of your own home with a plate of warm food in front of you. It might sound strange at first, but I promise that it is really fun when we all get to enjoy the same food as if we are sitting at the same table.
Open to vegetarians, vegans and meat reducers aged 65 and over. Email email@example.com to find out more, or to book your place and get the Zoom link and password. Or call the VfL office on 0161 257 0887.
