(DE) Pigging out during Vegan Spring
- [Deutsche Welle]
For many, veganism would seem incompatible with the stereotypical German
diet. But the animal product-free lifestyle is becoming more popular in the
land of bratwurst and schnitzel.
Families in Hanover's city center mill about as sumptuous aromas waft
through the air. One of the pedestrians, Birgit Borutta, walks from booth
to booth at this food festival taking place on this warm April afternoon.
It's not just any food fair: "Vegan Spring" - which has just taken place
April 13, for the third year in a row - promotes a vegan lifestyle. And its
vendors are astonishingly busy.
"These people have created the first vegan cappuccino," Borutta explains,
as a frothing cup of "vegaccino" - the name coined by the St. Wendel-based
company of the same name - is poured. Using soy and lupin instead of milk,
it tastes just like a regular cappuccino.
"And this is vegan ice cream," she says. Made with olive oil instead of
milk, it leaves the familiar sugary aftertaste on the tongue as any other
banana-flavored scoop of soft-serve.
