A gourmet chocolate cake made with the ingredients from local produce and herbs, a vegan ice cream from the South Coast, a creamy vegan buttercream and a vegan peanut butter cup made from scratch by a vegan baker are among some of the vegan desserts from local businesses in Adelaide.
Gourmet food blogger and vegan baker Emily Ritchie says she uses a range of vegan food products in her recipes.
“We use a range that we think is sustainable, organic, fair trade and vegan.
So there are a lot of options for us to choose from,” Ms Ritchie said.”
There’s lots of products that we don’t eat that we’re happy with.”
I think it’s a bit of a cross-pollination of things from different regions of Australia.
“She says her customers tend to prefer to buy from local shops rather than chains.”
People tend to be more open-minded and we can have conversations about what’s ethical and what’s not ethical and that’s a good thing.
“It’s a great way for people to discover more about the vegan movement, what it’s about and what we’re about.”‘
We are all in this together’Ms Ritchie, who runs the online shop, Vegan and Vegans, says she wants to give back to the local community.
“If we’re doing our jobs, we can really be helping the local economy.”
A lot of the businesses we shop in have been around for years and we don ‘ve got to do more to help them.
“She also says she likes to give out gifts to people who come in.”
Some people love to receive gifts, and they think, ‘I just want to be touched and touched and to get a little bit of food into their hands’,” Ms Río’s mother-in-law said.
Ms Ríós mother-and-daughter team have worked together for more than a decade and she said it’s important to give gifts to those who have a strong community behind them.”
She said the local shops have a huge impact on her local community and she wants them to continue to grow.””
It’s just been a great tradition to do so.”
She said the local shops have a huge impact on her local community and she wants them to continue to grow.
“The community is so important to us and we have to keep that in mind,” Ms Dóid said.
She said while her family has been vegan for 30 years, she’s still excited to see the community growing.
“Hopefully we can continue to create a place where people can come in and enjoy their local community,” Ms O’Dwyer said.
