The Hastings Vegan Dining Club met for a scary vegan lunch on Halloween. We were served a bowl of delicious beetroot, apple and carrot creamy soup with a round bread roll in the middle with a tomato in the middle of it. We all enjoyed the soup notwithstanding it looking like an eye floating in a bowl of blood. Lunch consisted of a scrumptious nut roast with roasted potatoes with scary faces carved into them, roasted carrots that looked like fingers, shredded red cabbage and braised leeks. This was followed by a mouthwatering apple crumble and apple and walnut muffins. All vegan. And didn’t scare any animals to produce it! Next up is a fast food Indian dinner and a mince pies and sherry party.
The “intellectual prep” as John Lanchester puts it @LRB is, quoting Milton Friedman, to make an idea thinkable, so that it can be turned into policy when the time comes. This is the work: in the climate emergency, to make a plant based society thinkable, to then make it possible
