Renee Buckingham, best known as the vegan founder of Melbourne Vegan Guide and Sydney Vegan Guide, will host a virtual vegan journey into her love of the humble chickpea on October 25. Chickpeas are a popular ingredient in Middle Eastern and Mediterranean cuisine, and Renee's vegan travel experiences will come to the fore as she makes falafel, hummus and even a gin-based cocktail. Renee is collaborating with Drool, a virtual cooking experience community where you can learn new cooking skills and share your creations in a friendly and fun online environment. Tickets are $20.00 per person, and you receive the ingredients list, method and Zoom details in advance once you book.

First, Renee will guide you through the steps to make a gin-based cocktail using the aquafaba, or 'bean juice' from a can of chickpeas. This versatile ingredient has also featured in previous Drool experiences as a substitute for egg white. Next, Renee will share the secrets to her special falafel and hummus recipes that showcase how tasty chickpeas can be. Finally, Renee will talk you through how to make a simple slaw to serve alongside your freshly made falafel and hummus. Then, it'll be a matter of sitting back and enjoying the fruits of your labour as Renee shares her insights into the art of food blogging and food styling. This is an early afternoon event so it's a perfect time to make and eat this light and tasty vegan gluten-free meal.
