No more deliveries but lots of recipes After six years of delivering vegan meals to the discerning folk of Bristol, the Miller Green kitchen has closed. It was an enormous joy and privilege running Miller Green but the time felt right to stop and other challenges were calling.
When we started in 2015, there was very little choice if you didn’t want to eat animal products and what there was wasn’t particularly inspiring. Our aim was to show that vegan food could be delicious as well as being good for animals, health and the planet. I hope we have achieved that.
Over the years, we worked with some wonderful colleagues and served some lovely customers – we seemed to attract the nicest people! We learnt a lot about how to bring out the best in plant-based ingredients and we shared some of what we learnt in our cookery courses.
Of course, we’re in a very different culinary world now, particularly here in Bristol and I like to think we played our part in helping to make vegan normal! There is a wonderful choice of plant-based food out there and it is increasing rapidly. I don’t see the trend slowing down or stopping. Even if you don’t see yourself going the full vegan, eating more vegetable and less animal makes sense in every way.
Having learnt so much, we are not going to disappear completely. We will continue to share our knowledge and recipes through the Miller Green website. Eventually our entire repertoire – and more – will be there for the taking, along with hints and tips on getting the best out of plant-based ingredients. I also hope that we will be able to run the occasional course and supper club in the future as well. We’ll keep you posted.
