Vegan Nacht Amsterdam

At the time of writing, this one remains something of a mystery… All we know is there’s an impressive list of vegan-friendly restaurants joining in, and if you give the Facebook page a like you’ll be privy to exclusive promotions and special prices which will be announced on the day. Intrigued? I know I am! Vegan Nacht Amsterdam // 6 May

Vegan Sundays at SNCKBR

Every first Sunday of the month, SNCKBR dishes up a 3-course vegan menu for €27,50 p.p., in each of its restaurants. Don’t be fooled by the name, the food leans towards healthy, but if you’re in the mood for naughty as well as nice you can opt for the biologically-produced wine pairing for an extra €15 p.p.

Vegan Potluck Amsterdam

A great way to make some plant-loving friends and discover new foods without breaking the bank! Just pop along to Sarphatipark with your own plate, cup and cutlery (because disposable is so last year...), and bring a dish of your choice. It can be homemade or store-bought, sweet or savoury, just so long as it’s vegan. Here’s hoping for sunshine! Vegan Potluck // 13 May

Mother's Day Mini High Tea

Beter en Leuk, a cute-as-pie café-come-shop, will hold a plant-based high tea on Sunday, 13 May, to celebrate Mother’s Day.

Workshop: Tempeh

If you’re not familiar with it yet, tempeh is basically tofu’s older, sexier brother. A ridiculously healthy, fermented Indonesian food traditionally made with soy beans, it makes a great meat substitute and it’s downright delicious when cooked well. After this two-hour workshop at Mediamatic, you’ll get your own ‘do it yourself kit’ to take home. If you can’t make the date don’t throw a tempeh tantrum (lol), just keep an eye out for the next one.

Vegan Foodie Festival

Less of a festival and more of a city-wide celebration of plant-based goodness, this event will take place in Amsterdam’s restaurants where there will be special menus, entertainment and promotional offers. The main aim is to promote plant-based products, increase sales for vegan and vegan-friendly eateries, and to offer something different for foodies in the city. Who’s in?
