National Geographic Traveller Food

LONDON (Wednesday, 8 May 2019): National Geographic Traveller Food has revealed its top 10 vegan-friendly cities, and singled out the restaurants putting them on the map in 2019. In the latest issue, distributed free with June’s National Geographic Traveller (UK), we celebrate a movement with real momentum, showcasing the plant-based dishes making waves across the globe, from doughnuts in Berlin to vegan sushi in Warsaw.

Glen Mutel, editor of National Geographic Traveller Food, said: “Veganism is truly a global movement — there’s never been a better time to travel as a vegan. London is leading the charge, particularly in the East End — and in this issue, we’ve profiled three Hackney-based chefs who are pushing the boundaries of veganism. But London faces healthy competition from culinary powerhouses such as Milan, Tel Aviv, Berlin, São Paulo and, of course, New York and Los Angeles.”

Also in this issue, we examine the renaissance of Kentucky bourbon, sample the historic kebabs of Lucknow, Northern India and journey to Malta for a slow-cooked family meal. All this plus guides to the food hotspots of Copenhagen, St Petersburg and Hawke’s Bay, New Zealand.

In addition, expect the usual mix of thought-provoking features and easy-to-follow recipes from world-renowned contributors.
