Gaby and Hans Wieland of Sligo Food Tours have announced the launch of a vegan take on their tours, starting this autumn.
Sligo Vegan Food Tours is a 3.5 hour walking tour that covers eight to nine venues. Food lovers will be treated to the town’s most famous vegan eatery as well as other vegan friendly stops. The tour includes food and drink tastings at each restaurant and café, and Gaby and Hans will introduce the people behind the food.
“Eating without preaching and experiencing new flavours and ingredients is part of the fun of our new tour,” said Gaby.
Guests will discover plant based foods, taste new dishes and share vegan snacks facilitated by tour guides Gaby and Hans, who have long standing connections with many of the featured establishments and chefs. Having been food producers themselves for more than 25 years they have an understanding of the meaning of local, seasonal, organic and plant based.
“Vegan food shouldn’t be a matter of contention, but of challenge,” said Hans. “After all – eating good tasty food makes you feel good.”
“We hope people living in Sligo or visiting Sligo, who eat vegan for whatever reasons, and people who want to find out more about a plant based diet will find the tour helpful, inspiring and fun,” said Gaby.
Participants will receive a list of featured venues and suggestions where to shop for a plant based diet.
The first tour will be on Saturday 28th September, and costs €60 per person.
