Microsoft's Bill Gates Gets Behind Vegan Eggs

No, it's not another of our April fool jokes! Microsoft's Bill Gates and Paypal's Peter Thiel really are plugging Vegan Eggs

Here's what the Daily Mail said;

Not clear what plants are being used - Acorns?
"MailOnline was able to try two of Hampton Creek’s products - its mayonnaise, and cookies made using its baking product.

The results were surprising, if a little anticlimactic. Both tasted exactly as you would expect - and are indistinguishable from products made with real egg.
The chocolate chip cookies we tried were excellent - crumbly, moist and with a feel in the mouth identical to a normal cookie. Crucially, they also look identical to a normal cookie - despite containing no egg.

Hampton Creek’s ‘Beyond Egg’ mayonnaise was also extremely similar to ‘normal’ mayo - and after trying it out on a few friends, some even preferred to to normal mayonnaise."

New record by London Chef for Vegan Catering?

RushPRNews: London Chef Sets New Standards for Vegan Catering

Lloyd Hesom at the Selsdon Park Hotel has become Lush Handmade Cosmetics chef of the year after delighting 300 Lush employees for 3 days with a 100% vegan menu. There was even a full vegan cheeseboard.

Chef's interested in following in Lloyd's and pulling their socks up to face any challenge and pleasing everybody rather than just the apathetic and unadventourous should visit London Vegfest at Olympia on the5th and 6th October.

Lloyd agrees with Lush's Mark Constantine and says  "If you can please vegans you can please anyone!"

OK, so I admit,  I helped a bit.............
