About JARR Kombucha:
JARR has been brewing its own kombucha since autumn 2015 where it opened the first commercial kombucha brewery in Hackney Wick, London. In November 2018, JARR partnered with Duvel Moortgat, a 4th generation family of specialty breweries established in Belgium in 1871. At the end of 2019, JARR began construction of a brand new, state-of-the-art kombucha brewery in Belgium. Today, as part of the Duvel Moortgat family, JARR’s goal is to share premium kombucha with more people than ever before. https://jarrkombucha.com/
About Essential Vegan:
Vanessa Almeida is a Brazilian vegan chef based in London. Having moved to England in 2007 with Neni her husband, living in the capital provided exposure to different walks of life, from diverse diets to ethical lifestyles. The couple was inspired to conceive and produce an innovative magazine called Elpis Mag, which came in the format of a paper bag with articles of an ethical nature on either side, distributed freely in select wholefood shops and cafes across the city.
With time Vanessa began to focus on her cooking and went on to take up studies in nutrition with a specialisation in veganism, devoting more time to her online blog all about vegan recipes and tips. Before she knew it she’d gathered enough material to compile a book, and in December 2013 they launched the Essential Vegan Cookbook.
Satisfying her desire to educate and inspire others in the kitchen, Vanessa likes nothing more than combining healthy ingredients to create delicious recipes, proving that vegans needn’t ever compromise in flavour to live according to their ethical beliefs. https://essentialvegan.uk/
