Here’s what not to miss this weekend in London
THE VEGAN TREAT SHOP BY BAILEYS
The Vegan Treat Stop by Baileys Almande is popping up in Soho Square for one day only, inviting dairy-free dessert devotees to indulge in a classic pud with a vegan twist. The Vegan Treat Stop appears hot on the heels of research, commissioned to mark the launch of Baileys Almande, which revealed that iconic desserts such as Cheesecake, Eton mess and banoffee pie are what the nation’s vegans miss the most when ditching the dairy. On 23rd March from 1pm until stocks last, visitors will be able to choose from a selection of five vegan-friendly and dairy-free versions of favourites such as eclairs and tiramisu. Free of charge, the sweet treats can then be enjoyed with a perfectly paired Baileys Almande, or taken away to be devoured elsewhere.
