Meet Silvobeat at the Spring Vegan Festival

Animal Liberation Victoria is hosting their second Spring Vegan Festival this Sunday, 16 September at St Kilda Town Hall. I’m honoured to have been asked to co-run a vegan cooking workshop along with the talented ladies from Wombat Cafe & Store, and The Road Not Taken.

Come along and check out some of the awesome stalls from the likes of Rawbeet, Desert Island Confectionary, Sandwitch, Vegan Perfection (which will hopefully be a great opportunity to stock up on Vego bars!), and Edgar’s Mission.

Pop by the workshop at 12:30 to see my cooking demo and try some of my food – and be sure to say hi! I’d love to meet you!


Welcome to Silvobeat my Wonderful Friends

Hey gang,

First off, thank you for taking the time to follow Silvobeat; I’m so grateful for your kind words of encouragement.

It’s time for an intro to the face behind the food (or in this case behind the very delectable vegan ice-cream sandwich I devoured at the Melbourne vegan market courtesy of Girls & Boys Fitzroy ?!).

I’m Silvia, and my friends call me Silvo. I’m a driver trainer by day, but in my spare time, I’m passionate about showing people how satisfying and delicious a plant-based diet can be.

Over the last few years, I’ve been on a journey to give up meat, and now all animal products from my diet. Together with my husband Stuart, we’ve been training ourselves how to eat and sustain a nourishing and healthy vegan lifestyle.

It’s been so exciting to discover the variety of plant-based food I’ve been able to find and create. Meal preparation has turned into full-blown experimentation! I want to share the thrill of tasting something so amazing with others so you too can be inspired to eat more plants―wherever you are on your journey.

If you’re already vegan, I hope you’ll find new and exciting ways to eat your favourite plants with my simple and creative recipes.

Stu (the taste-tester and tech-wizard behind Silvobeat―and now copy editor ?) are working hard to create a beautiful collection of recipes for you to try at home, which we’re currently launching.

In the meantime, I’d love to hear where you are on your journey!
