Are you ready to VegOut? Delicious animal-derivative-free dishes this September at Eliane

With statistics showing an unprecedented surge in the uptake of veganism in the UK, you’d be forgiven for thinking that restaurants catering solely for vegans are spread far and wide throughout the country.

Unfortunately though, this couldn’t be further from the truth. For vegans, or those following a wholefood, plant-based, dairy-free or meat free-diet, finding places to eat out with a good choice of tasty dishes on offer is incredibly difficult.

Eliane, a local chain focussing on fresh, organic and genuinely delicious food, set out nearly five years ago to buck this trend by tackling the issue in a more roundabout way. They wanted to introduce animal-derivative and cruelty-free food, which makes up around 60% of their menu, in the Berkshire countryside whilst also offering a choices concept to suit those following traditional western diets.

To celebrate the global movement towards veganism, Eliane has prepared a full week of animal-derivative-free drinks and dishes, dubbed “VegOut”. You’ll find their signature scrumptious dishes with a twist – not a single one will contain meat, eggs or dairy. From the Sabich at brunch to the Green Chana Biryani at dinner, everyone can eat phenomenal fresh, flavourful, organic, and locally sourced dishes knowing that no animal products were in on site at the same time.

Eliane’s founder, Rafia Willmott, sums up the event simply, “We exist to create incredible food, in a warm and friendly space, that our customers can eat regardless of their dietary choices. VegOut is an extension of this concept, it’s a week focussed on meeting both the ideals of existing vegans and also opening veganism up to those who are currently undecided.”

VegOut will run at Eliane in Hungerford High Street from Monday 17th September to Sunday 23rd September, covering breakfast, brunch, lunch and (on Thursday 20 September) dinner – see below for opening and serving times.
