Healthy and Humane Dishes Are Great News for Compassionate Celebrities
– PETA just received word from Anton Manganaro, head chef of the
British Academy of Film and Television Arts (BAFTA), that organisers of
the annual awards ceremony (the BAFTAs) have created an extraordinary,
mouth-watering, animal-free menu sure to delight vegan A-listers such as
Casey Affleck, Alan Cumming, Woody Harrelson, Thandie Newton, Joaquin Phoenix, and Natalie Portman .
plant-based menu will feature a mixed-grain salad with pickled
vegetables, beetroot relish, and pea shoots – and that's just the tip of
the iceberg! Guests will also be offered a chickpea masala served with a
croquette and coriander cress, and dessert is a coconut panna cotta
with a fresh raspberry and basil salad.
hailing the plant-based menu at this year's BAFTA ceremony as
outstanding", says PETA Director Elisa Allen. "Nominees who don't win on
the night can still be awarded a gorgeous vegan meal – which is golden
for their health, animals, and the environment."
– whose motto reads, in part, that "animals are not ours to eat" –
notes that, in addition to sparing many animals every year the horrors
of the abattoir, vegans are less prone to suffering from cancer,
obesity, and diabetes than meat-eaters are. They also have a lower
carbon footprint. These are just some of the reasons why millions of
British people are going vegan and why the number of requests for PETA's
free vegan starter kit increases every year.
