‘Great Vegan Bake Off’ Looking For Contestants


1 Minutes Read

A vegan charity is looking for contestants for its annual plant-based baking competition.

Animal rights organization PETA launched its Great Vegan Bake-Off six years ago. A twist on TV favorite The Great British Bake Off, i?t invites bakers from all backgrounds to put their skills to the test and share their favourite egg- and dairy-free creations.

12 finalists will have their recipes featured by PETA, and the winner will be crowned the Great Vegan Bake-Off champion for 2018.

“It’s time for the UK’s top vegan bakers to show us what they’ve got,” said PETA Director Elisa Allen.

“PETA’s Great Vegan Bake-Off seeks to crown the best cruelty-free confections, from egg-free meringues to coconut-milk custard and beyond.”

PETA adds that last year’s winner, Lorna Songhurst, the founder of Totally Nuts by Blue-Milk catering company in Kent, snagged top honours for her raw chocolate-orange layer cake topped with chocolate mousse.

Great British Bake Off

Following in the footsteps of PETA’s vegan bake-off, Channel 4’s Great British Bake Off has introduced a vegan challenge for 2018 – reflecting the rise in plant-based living.

Speaking about the new series, which started August 28, Paul Hollywood, who hosts GBBO along with Sandi Toksvig, Noel Fielding and Prue Leith, said: “We wanted something different and something to represent what was happening in this country. Veganism is something that seems to be growing. That’s why it is in.

“If you are a vegan or you’re thinking about it and are just worried about how it is going to change your life, watch it and see. It fascinated me, totally … shocked me as well.”

?You can enter the Great Vegan Bake-Off using this via this entry form by 5pm on October 1. For full contest details, please visit PETA.org.uk
