It’s this time of the year again, the Vegan MOFO 2013 is about to start (namely tomorrow!)! And Lilith and I are excited to be part of this worldwide vegan blogger event. If you haven’t heard of the Vegan Month of Food before, here’s a quote from the Vegan MOFO-website:
The idea is to write as much as you can all month, about vegan food. The blog entries can be about anything food related. (…)
As the world catches on that vegan food really is the best choice for animals (suck it, humane meat!), the planet (bite me, melting ice caps!) and people (piss off, heart disease!) let’s show them what vegan eating is all about.”

So, as you’ve read, the VeganMOFO is an international bloggers event, all about delicious vegan food.
And since we like a little challenge (as if being vegan in a non-vegan world wasn’t…), we decided to dedicate our VeganMOFO-posts to the French cuisine.
We both have a special place in our hearts for our neighbor country with the beautiful language, the homeland of many poets and artists, the land of Amélie and the Schties, the land of fries, cheese and mousse au chocolat. The land where people greet each other with kisses and where swearing never seems to sound rude and where shops still close during lunchtime. The land of baguette, barette and boule. (…)
I think, by now you get that there are a lot of aspects of the French culture that we like. But since we are not even vegetarians anymore, and food is an important part of French culture, we unfortunately often seem to miss out on this one.
Do we? Well, that’s exactly our mission this month: to demonstrate that French cuisine can be all we want – vegan, delicious and definitely not the part of French culture we have to miss out on. (Instead we’ll be happy to bury the foie gras, les cuisses de grenouilles and the rillette. Forever.)
We’ll be happy to take you with us on our vegan journey through the French cuisine!
