VEGAN CUISINE MONTH
Vegan cuisine has taken an extraordinary turn for popularity and is now present on almost all restaurant menus all around the world. Vegan cuisine is plant-based meals that are cruelty-free and follow a more sustainable lifestyle. Vegan cuisine month allows those who follow this lifestyle to celebrate their success and the success that the lifestyle brings to the environment as well as allowing an opportunity for those who are interested in trying out this lifestyle an opportunity to do so. We celebrated vegan cuisine for the sheer amount of development it has had in such a short space of time as well as for the awareness it has created towards animal cruelty, sustainability, and environmental impacts.

Vegan cuisine month was established as a result of a book called “The Vegan Kitchen” which was written by Freya Danish, this book was the first vegan cookbook ever published in the United States and an extremely proud moment of veganism and the vegan society as a whole. In this book, Freya described the ethical purposes of veganism and why it is of such importance. Along with her husband, Freya was a big part of creating the entire vegan movement we witness today.

Not only have many cookbooks been written but negotiations for vegan cuisine options in schools, hospitals, conferences, catering events, and many more have been made a possibility as a result of these institutional vegan heroes.
