Just in (and hopefully available from now on) unique to Pogo are these amazing non spicy Mushroom and Garlic samosas. Made by a local family to our vegan specifications these samosas are perfect for those of us who are not keen on “hot and spicy food”  but love the texture of a crispy  potato samosa in this classic flavour. £1.50 each from the Pogo counter.

Can’t afford to be vegan?  – try eating at Pogo more often or…. Think again…  veganism isn’t a privilege
for the rich!

The Alternative Vegan Festival is a DIY, grassroots event which will
show how being vegan doesn’t have to cost the Earth.

We can reduce the environmental impact of capitalism by through
conscious consumption.  This event will focus on highlighting ethical,
anti-consumerist ways of living.

There will be practical workshops on the day about many topics,
including creating your own products (jam, milk, booze,
toiletries…), cake baking & turning rubbish into useful stuff.
Discussions include veganism vs. freeganism, nutrition, mass-catering,
anarchism, ethical consumerism and getting stuff for free!  There will
also be campaign stalls and a cinema room.

We will have a DIY pizza stall – bring some vegan toppings with you.
Dough will be provided.  There will also be a screenprinting workshop,
so bring fabric and designs!

Come along and find out more about low-impact veganism, spend the day
helping out or just chilling out with like-minded or interested
people.

Come to rAtstar Autonomous Social Centre, 298 Camberwell Rd,
Camberwell, London on the 7th November.  The festival will be open
from 12noon until 6pm and entry is free!

The Pogo book shop shelves have been dusted off and restocked. As of this week they will be kept up to date with all the best in radical and vegan literature that is available to us.  We don’t have much room so there won’t be the same huge selection as you can find at the 56a Infoshop or Housmans bookshop but we will have a specialist assortment that caters to the vegan taste as well cookbooks, punk, anarchist, bicycle manuals etc etc and we’ll do them cheap!

And we have winter fare to warm you up, pizza, curry, marinated tofu, lovely lentil soup, and we have a special warm toasty drink, hot spiced apple juice! It’s amazing.

Tomorrow’s menu!

Probably. Definitely most of it!

Potato and sweetcorn chowder. Because I need to say the word chowder sometimes. It’s a good word. And the soup is damn tasty.

Marinated & roasted tofu, with sundried tomato hummus, oven baked potato wedges with fennel/paprika seasoning and salads.

Curry involving courgettes and other things yet to be decided, served with chapatis, raita and salad, and I WISH chutney but alas we have no more of our batch of homemade stuff. Sad. But pickling time will be here again soon…

Pizza, the old Wednesday standard, big slice served with wedges and salads.

There’s an orange cashew cheesecake…it’s worth crossing London for, if I do say so myself. That and a cup of coffee? I know what I’m having after my shift. And I’ve just taken a batch of choc chip cookies out of the oven, they’re lookin’ pretty good right now. With a tall glass of Bonsoy…

I’m losing the run of myself…swoon!

Two chefs in the kitchen….
