Vegan Travel Diaries with Shivya Nath and Anuradha Sawhney at Dario's Restaurant

Oct. 28, 2017

We've got some exciting news for people living in and around Pune City. Dario's is holding a World Vegan Week from the 28th of October to the 1st of November to celebrate everything plant-based. As part of that celebration, Dario's along with Vegan First will be hosting a special live talk and buffet sundowner with Shivya Nath and Anuradha Sawhney.

If you've been looking at destinations to travel to as a vegan you've probably stumbled onto Shivya Nath's blog called The Shooting Star. Shivya decided about 3 years ago, to give up her apartment, sell all her possessions and see the world as a solo traveler. This courage and tenacity to explore has taken her to various corners of the world. Her adventures have won her accolades from National Geographic, BBC, Vogue and a host of others.

In the same space, author of 'The Vegan Kitchen: Bollywood Style!', Anuradha Sawhney will also speak about her experiences with travel and vegan food. Sawhney currently runs a successful Vegan Bakery and catering service called Back to the Basics. Ms. Sawhney was also the ex-Chief Functionary at PETA India. Both ladies will be speaking about their experiences traveling as a vegan.

Along with this amazing opportunity to interact with our speakers, you will also get to sample some of Dario's spectacular vegan food. Creamy pasta, mock meats and incredibly fresh salads are just some of the delicious vegan dishes that Dario's has been plating up for years. They will be offering up 2 packages which you can find here for the sundowner, so make sure you RSVP with us soon (details at the end of the article)!
