Italian eatery Salt Meats Cheese is bringing back its one-night-only vegan feast
While the name Salt Meats Cheese doesn’t exactly scream ‘vegan friendly’, the team behind the popular stable of Italian restaurants (which boasts locations across Brisbane and on the Gold Coast) is actually well known for its expansive plant-based food offering. This February, SMC’s popular all-vegan feasting event – aptly named Soul Meets Cheers – is returning to bring you the ultimate plant-based Italian banquet, for one night only.
Clear your schedules on Tuesday February 2 – the belly-busting Soul Meets Cheers event will be kicking off from 5:00 pm at Salt Meats Cheese Newstead. Strap yourself in for a tailored five-course banquet of drool-worthy Italian favourites, which have been given the plant-based treatment by the SMC chefs (fun fact – co-founder Stefano De Blasi is a proud vegan). This year’s edition is inspired by the Lombardy region of Northern Italy, and will also include a glass of vegan wine or a Young Henrys beer, all for just $49.
Soul Meets Cheers will kick off with a dish of mint-and-sage-infused apple coleslaw, followed by crispy polenta fries served with napoletana sauce. For the main affair, there’s three-pumpkin pizza topped with vegan ricotta, and you’ll also be getting stuck into risotto made with saffron and gremolata. Finally, the sweet stuff. The banquet will finish with a fresh and delicious fruit mustard served a la mode with vanilla-bean gelato. Yum! There are limited spots available for this mouth-watering edition of the Soul Meets Cheers event so head to the SMC website to book your spot.
