Coming Soon! 7-Course Vegan Degustation Event at Grown West End

Mark your calendars! Grown West End is hosting an amazing vegan degustation event this January, with a special focus on local spring produce.

Grown is celebrating the New Year with their first event for 2022. The January Seven Course Degustation will feature seasonal produce from the likes of Loop Grower, Little Acre Mushrooms, and other local suppliers.

There will also be some housemade brioche french toast with dulce de leche, ice cream and seasonal fruit; and housemade hash brown with slow-roasted tomatoes, miso white beans, seasonal greens, avocado, and purple kimchi.

Grown offers plant-based dining with a seasonal menu which utilises fresh local farm produce from Brisbane’s surrounds. They also serve specially curated beverages for vegans, so you are sure that the wine and beer they offer are vegan friendly and where possible, are also locally produced and sustainably packed.

The January Seven Course Degustation event happens beginning 6:00 p.m. on 27 January 2022. Tickets cost $95 per person with an option to order matching wines for an additional $65. This is a limited-seating vegan degustation event so be sure to book early.
