People's Kitchen, Nottingham

/directory/product_images/hgumhlhunkbbgz.jpg A delightful dish is cooked and served at the Sumac Cafe by a different volunteer team each Saturday. Food is served at 7pm until all gone. The Forest Fields Social Club Bar follows from 7.30.

Food at Sumac is vegan, so is suitable for all diets and all cultures (call to ensure gluten free or other special options).

People's Kitchen provides a great opportunity for people wishing to show off their cooking skills (whether personally vegan or not) or for novice cooks seeking an opportunity to learn more. Please contact us for more details.

The Sumac Centre is home of Veggies Catering Campaign, so other vegan campaigners are often around for support and information.
