Anton Manganaro, the head chef of the British Academy of Film and Television Arts (BAFTA), has recently got in touch with PETA to share the good news.
The organisers of the annual awards ceremony (the BAFTAs) have created an animal-free menu sure to suit vegan A-listers such as Casey Affleck, Alan Cumming, Woody Harrelson, Thandie Newton, Joaquin Phoenix, and Natalie Portman .
The vegan menu will feature a mixed-grain salad with pickled vegetables, beetroot relish, and pea shoots –but wait; there’s more to make your mouth water!
Guests will also have the option of a chickpea masala served with a croquette and coriander cress. The dessert is a coconut panna cotta with a fresh raspberry and basil salad.
"We're hailing the plant-based menu at this year's BAFTA ceremony as outstanding", says PETA Director Elisa Allen. "Nominees who don't win on the night can still be awarded a gorgeous vegan meal – which is golden for their health, animals, and the environment."
PETA promotes the message- ‘animals are not ours to eat’ and when going vegan you are sparing the lives of many animals every year. Not only this, vegans are reportedly less likely to suffer from cancer, obesity and diabetes compared to meat eaters. AND vegans have a low carbon footprint. These are just a few of the reasons people are opting for a plant-based lifestyle and why more and more people are curious about a meat free living.
