California Prune Blogging Event 7.7.17

I was over the moon when California Prune invited me to my first official blogging event last Friday, It was at a big event in London so it was a really big deal to me and I was so excited! The event took place at Kensington Olympia as part of Just V Show, Love Natural Love You and The Allergy & Free From Show.


The Blogging Event was an exclusive opportunity for bloggers to meet the CP Brand Ambassadors and nutritionists, get tips on how Prunes can support a healthy lifestyle, sample new recipes, a free goodie bag and a Q&A session with the CP Ambassador chefs.?

Rosemary Shrager, Peter Sidwell, Peter Cook &?Danielle Davey.


I really loved all the invaluable tips from the chefs & watching them be silly on stage. Rosemary?& Peter Sidwell are great to watch cook together, are really entertaining & informative. I loved watching Peter give great tips about his amazing bread and it was great talking with Danielle as she’s almost my age & very into health like I am.

The vegan-friendly food I tried was the gorgeous sourdough bread & Chelsea buns. Who knew how amazing they could be by adding prunes! A revelation! Take a?look at?this?video of Artisan baker Peter giving you some great tips on adding fruit to bread.

  1. […] My vegan friends Ben & Helen came down the weekend of the 7th & the 8th October for the Brighton Viva Vegan Festival which was a perfect time for us to hang out and eat some great food in the city. Me & Ben got to know each other on twitter as he’s a vegan blogger too and we had been to the same event earlier in the year. You see my post on the CA Prune Blogging event >> here. […]

  2. ooh this actually sounds very interesting, I really need to try some vegan foods soon!

    1. Yeah it was good fun. Something for everyone there not just us vegans. Tesco were serving up meals with meat in and I’m sure others were as well. Plenty of stalls for non vegans too ?I think everyone should try some at some point in their lives.. I eat very well and love my junk food still. Thanks for visiting! ??xo
