BAFTA chef creates special vegan menu for Thandie Newton

VEGAN LIFESTYLE: Actress Thandie Newton

VEGAN CELEBRITIES, including actress Thandie Newton, will be treated to a special animal-free menu at this year's British Academy of Film and Television Arts (BAFTA) Awards, according to reports.

As well as cooking meat and vegetarian dishes, head chef Anton Manganaro has created an extravagant vegan menu sure to delight vegan A-listers such as Jessica Chastain , Alan Cumming, Woody Harrelson, Thandie Newton, Joaquin Phoenix and Natalie Portman.

The plant-based vegan menu will feature peppers roasted over English Beachwood, leek and wild mushrooms, pickled heritage carrots with poppy seed dressing and beetroot gel, and black and white quinoa with radish, lemon and avocado. Guests will also be offered an aubergine tian with peppers, chestnut mushrooms, herb crust, tomato salsa, leaf spinach and rosemary potatoes.

"If there were an award for mouth-watering vegan catering, the BAFTAs would be a tough nominee to beat – attendees are in for a treat!" said People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) associate director Elisa Allen.

"We commend the BAFTAs for taking heed: more and more people are eating vegan to avoid health problems while helping animals and the environment, too."

In addition to sparing animals immense suffering in today's industrialised meat, egg and dairy industries, vegans are less prone to suffering from heart disease, diabetes, strokes, obesity and cancer than meat-eaters are. They also have smaller carbon footprints, as the meat industry is the main producer of the greenhouse-gas emissions that cause climate change.
