The ‘Vegan Kitchen’ will take over the Dining Dome Live Cookery Theatre throughout the day. From 12pm – 4pm some of the leading lights from Manchester’s huge vegan scene will be taking to the stage to showcase some of the most innovative and exciting plant based dishes, products and cookery techniques around. Local vegan luminaries taking part include author of award-winning, best-selling cookery book “Vegan Street Food” Jackie Kearney. Masterchef Finalist and British Street Food Award-Winner Jackie will be cooking up her favourite dishes from her new book “Vegan Christmas Feasts” due to be published in September. 

Matt Nutter, Development Chef at Foodwell, and Founder and ex owner/head chef of the award-winning Allotment vegan restaurant will be joining the roster and demonstrating dishes that make the most of his favourite flavours - Miso baked pineapple tatin, miso caramel, confit beetroots, pomegranate and rose. 

By night, the Dining Dome will host a very special MFDF vegan banquet…

Tasty plant-based street food treats will include Dim Sum Su’s vegan Chinese dumplings, Tibetan Kitchen’s vegan Himalayan street food, Tampopo’s vegan Thai dishes and Gingers Comfort Emporium array of vegan ice creams. It will be a proper vegan street feast all day and night.
