Vegan Mofo 2014 has officially come round again and of course I’ve signed up to take part. Whilst last year was a bit of a failure (I only managed 13 posts), I’m determined to do it properly this year, I’ve decided to try and go for the full 30 posts. Unfortunately I decided all this two weeks ago, which I thought was loads of time. I was sitting around with a print out calendar of September feeling really smug that I had my theme sorted, most of the days planned and 4 recipes under my belt. “I’m great” I was thinking to myself “I can do this easily”…and then of course I began reading all the tweets from expert Mofo bloggers who already have most of their posts drafted up…
And then the panic set in. Shiiiit.
But let’s forget all that. I’m going to bloody do this. I might go insane, my head might explode with stress and I’m sure this will cause a few disasters in the kitchen along the way but I will do this, dammit! I have a list of ideas and a highlighter, everything is going to be fine!
And so I feel that with all the madness kicking off over the next few days, I can finally reveal my theme. Last year I did a monthly theme on Seasonal Cooking and this year I decided to stick with just one theme again.
Bizarre and Outdated Cookbooks
Yeah. Look at these beauties. These are just some of the cookbooks I’ll be using as inspiration for the whole of September. Some of them are gloriously tacky and incredibly outdated, some are a little more recent but just plain weird. I have cooked some crazy stuff over the last few weeks and I’ve barely made a dent in my plan. I’m hoping there will be more laughter than there are tears but some of the things I have planned out are terrifying. To take a little pressure off myself, I’ve brought my collection of old vegan cookbooks into the mix but I will be veganising a lot of meaty/cheesy/eggy dishes from some awesome charity shop finds as well.
I am so excited for Mofo 2014!
Bring it on!
