One of the wonderful things about the WI is being able to invite people with different stories and lifestyles to educate us on their lives. This February, we were delighted to welcome Penny Franiel to talk to us about veganism and how to cook delicious vegan food.
Penny's talk was very insightful, particularly as she shared her own journey of becoming a vegan, running the Norwich Vegans group and how important veganism is to her life. It was fascinating to hear more about the wider discussion around veganism and how it's become a more mainstream dietary choice in current times, about Penny's love for animals and her experience will making and selling vegan cakes and bakes.
Of course, the Swallowtails had plenty of baking questions for Penny - who'd bought in some absolutely delicious treats for us to try. She gave us plenty of tips and advice about making vegan cakes, and some serious food for thought about the positive impact of veganism on the environment.
It was another fun, interesting evening full of lively discussion and great advice. We can't thank Penny enough for giving up her Tuesday evening to come and enlighten us!
