Pot Luck FAQ

Hi all,
Just a reminder about the super Vegetarian and Vegan Lunch thats happening this week - Saturday 27th @ 2pm in Satmya Natural Medicine Centre, 3 Royal Parade, Killaloe in aid of The Hope Foundation.
Please see some FAQ's which may be of help:
What is a Pot Luck?
All people attending are asked to prepare a vegetarian or vegan dish to share with others. Some examples are starters eg dips, nibbles etc. A main dish eg curry, salad, burgers, tarts ANYTHING!. Desserts eg anything sweet and yummy that is vegan or vegetarian. It can be as wild or as simple as you like.
But I can't cook?
Thats OK. You are still MORE than welcome. If you can't cook, won't cook or don't have time to cook. Come along anyway with your donation. If you really don't want to come empty handed then bring something to drink eg nice juice or a healthy cordial.
My dish needs to be served hot - how will I heat it?
If you have a hot dish that needs to be heated, this can be done on the hob in the kitchen in Satmya.
What else will I bring?
Along with your dish, €5 donation for The Hope Foundation bring a LUNCHBOX.
Why do I need a lunchbox?
Because (and this is important) you will want to take home samples of everyone elses home baked goodness. There is always leftovers at the end of these events and no one wants to bring home the same food they arrived with, so bring a lunchbox (or two!) and swap and share.
This is all about inspiring and being inspired by healthy nutritious vegetarian and vegan food.
If you have anymore questions, please don't hesitate to contact
