Even though ideological cousins of veganism have sprung up at various points in history and throughout the world, the contemporary vegan movement really got its start in the UK and spread most quickly from there to the anglophone bits of North America and Oceania. All of which makes it that much more exciting to see the geographic diversity of the participants in this year’s Vegan Month of Food. Ready for a whirlwind tour of international MoFo blog posts from the the last weekend or so? Here goes…
•Over in South Korea, Mipa of the blog Alien’s Day Out, posted about the various faux meats she discovered in her local grocery store.
•Bonnie, over on Eating with the Rabbits, reviewed the vegan gyros she found in the Netherlands.
•Beats, Rhymes, and Cookies, out of Italy, made a first attempt at vegan cinnamon rolls.
•Andrea in Mexico City whipped up rajas con crema, and Vegan en Mexico shared a recipe for pasta with balsamic vinegar and dijon mustard.
•Melanie in Austria posted an interview with Melisser of San Francisco’s Sugar Beat Sweets and The Urban Housewife blog.
•The Vegan Animal blog out of South Africa shared a recipe for tomato and green bean curry.
•Over in Germany, Mihl of Seitan is my Motor has started testing Caribbean yumminess for the author of the Vegan in the Sun blog.
Of course, there are a whole lot of other participants from around the world, but it’s not easy keeping up with all you MoFoers. And speaking of not keeping up, I don’t know how I missed this one from last week: Marie, over in the Philippines, posted last Wednesday on her blog How to Become a Vegan Domestic Goddess about a vegan version of a childhood favorite, mais con hielo, pictured above. Yes, polyglots, that’s corn with ice. And it sounds kinda fascinatingly awesome. If it weren’t so chilly here right now, I’d have to give it a try.
