Outlookindia has made veganism the cover story of its latest issue! And we're delighted to be featured (albeit in a single paragraph). 🙂
"Carrots, in Bangalore, is touted as India’s first vegan fine dining restaurant. They also prepare gluten-free, sugar-free and other allergy-friendly options on request. Says managing partner Susmitha Subbaraju, a vegan herself, “Our bread, dips, sauces, desserts, dairy-alternative milk…everything is prepared in-house.” Wholesome ingredients with maximum nutritional value: vegan milk, curds, cheeses. When someone orders a hot chocolate, they get to pick from five varieties of milk—almond, soy, cashew, coconut or brown rice. They have six shakes on the menu, each prepared with a different plant-based milk. They also prepare their own seitan, a meat analog made with a blend of wheat gluten and soy. This goes into replacement dishes: the Chef’s Special Mock Meat Curry, Sloppy Joe Burger and Seitan Stroganoff."'
Author Lachmi Deb Roy has done a beautifully through job covering this movement from various angles. We truly appreciate the effort and time she has put into researching this article.
It was an absolute pleasure to host Dr. Melanie Joy for dinner at Carrots and an honour to have her on our show #FoodThatLovesYouBack.
Dr. Joy is a social psychologist, author of several books, Founding President of Beyond Carnism, co-Director of CEVA and the coiner of the term "carnism". Watch this very interesting interview with so much information to make us all think about our relationship with food and with each other.
Also search for Dr. Melanie Joy's Tedx talk and other highly informative videos featuring her on google and youtube. We promise your mind will be blown open! 🙂
