Toronto hosts its annual Vegan Bake-Off this month. A friendly competition that not only shows off the capabilities of the contestants, but also the alternatives to more traditional desserts. As people continue to embrace healthier lifestyles as well as become more aware of the multitude of benefits surrounding meat-free diets, it is only natural that Vegan Bake-Offs would exist.
A great foil to the Annual Vegetarian Food Festival, which is held by the Toronto Vegetarian Association, the Totally Fabulous Vegan Bake-Off is a one-day event that celebrates a range of creative recipes for cupcakes, cookies, pies, tarts and more. By going beyond sugar, this event also speaks to a larger issue that is currently plaguing people's health.
The Vegan Bake-Off takes place on March 15, 2015.
