Here we go again!

Vegan Month of Food 2012

It’s October, and that means it’s Vegan MoFo! This will be the third year I participate, meaning you can expect a constant stream of food writing all month. Last year I wrote 42 posts – this year I’m going to tentatively aim for 50, between now and October 31. That time includes a trip to Australia with uncertain internet access, so there may be a few days off here and there.

For today: here is a big list of things I’ve been meaning to write about recently. I’m way behind; watch as I cross things off during the month. If you want to recommend something I should check out, please comment!

  1. If you’re going to eat at Heritage this month, I’d be keen to come with – I’ve been meaning to try them out.

    Yuzu Cafe on Ponsonby Rd do an amazing agedashi tofu, just don’t get the bonito flakes. I seem to remember there were a few other vegan things on the menu as well.

  2. Can’t wait for these posts. Have missed your updates! You should try the vegan whoopie pies and pie pops from Whoopie Pies in Grey Lynn! 🙂

  3. Great blogs as always Moira, I stoked about the new Ethiopian place on stoddard, at last we get some Injeera in new zealand, can’t wait to go there.
