Chili sin Carne con Vitality

Chili (3)

It took 25 years, but better late than never: My first vegan birthday!

Here it is, the all-vegan birthday cake buffet and two-course dinner for my family and friends at my home-home (Fauerbach, near Frankfurt, my parents’ home and where I grew up). No big new recipes, sorry, but I wanted to share these lovely photos with you – maybe they motivate you to celebrate a vegan birthday as well : ) (If you wanna read more about my way to veganism, click here.)

It really took some time to do the research, decide about the recipes and what kind of food I wanted to make. It needed some planned shopping at different places cause I can’t buy all the fancy vegan things at my home-village like I can do in Berlin. And it required some patience to convince my parents that I will have a vegan birthday, and would – more importantly – turn their kitchen into a crazy mess for two days…

But the one and a half days of shopping and preparing, most of the time together with my Mum, were fun and even relaxing (as I mentioned in a previous post, preparing food is like a relax therapy for me).

I had about 15 people around over the day and we started with a cake buffet. This is the Triple C with a simple frosting made of margarine, icing sugar and raspberry syrup plus blueberries…
