The 22nd of February marked the beginning of Lent, a period of 40 days which most people celebrate by either reducing food intake or removing a certain food item from their diet, such as dairy, sweets, and most commonly – meat.

At the Ideal Home Show, we’ve got a fantastic array of brands, celebrities, and demonstrations on all things food and drink, including vegetarian and vegan recipes and brands, whether you’re celebrating Lent, are vegan or vegetarian or just want to try something new. Learn new recipes, explore new brands and enter a new world of vegetarian and vegan foods, at the Show.

Heading to the Eat & Drink Stage is baking expert and food writer Juliet Sear, who specialises in vegan and vegetarian recipes that are both delicious and guilt-free. A perfect way to enjoy tasty meals and treats, explore her recipes such as Vegetable Rose Tarts and Biscoff Brownies, which are both delicious and either vegetarian or vegan.

Also heading to the stage is plant-based chef Lisa Marley, who has featured on BBC Radio,  Grand Designs, Elle, The Metro and more. You can watch her live demonstrations on the Eat & Drink Stage, such as Vegan Spicy Peanut Noodles and Vegan Apple Pie Crumble with Custard. Delicious!
