Thanks Lutin and Lepelaar!

Its nice to know one other Vegan in Groningen, I was worried about being the only Vegan in the village. I'm studying at the University there so I move in August and I'm all about advanced planning when it comes to living in another country.

A meet up sounds cool, depending on where it is and when, I would love to come.

Thanks for the link, I will investigate and test my Dutch reading skills. When that inevitably fails I will use google translator. I guess also some of it will make sense when I actually get to the Netherlands.

Also a I thought I would say hi to Cornelie, you suggested I join when I emailed you months ago and I finally got round to it. Thanks also for the book recommendation I loved it to bits.

Look forward to getting to know you all more.

They are so good. They even have them at the AH here in Breda, so they must be everywhere. They are dangerous! I also like the zuur maaten (I think that's the spelling). They are usually vegan and really good. Not the Goody Good Stuff brand, but another big brand. I accidentally discovered they were vegan when a student brought them into school. Poor kid didn't have a chance! I mean, why risk denying your teacher candy, right? ;)


Look-o-look?

If you want to learn more about vegans/veganism in Groningen you should see this blogs. They live in Groningen (ore near Groningen) so maybe it's interesting for you? They are in dutch unfortunately...

There's also a facebook group (mostly in Dutch) for vegans in Groningen: Vega e. o. Groningen. You're (I'm) definitely not the only one around. My closest friends in Groningen are a vegan family (US expats), and one of the prof's in my dept. is a vegan activist working for the (political) Party for the Animals.

Not sure when the next group meetup is, but I'm happy to meet up with you and show you around in September when I'm back in town. :)

Thanks miepmans86.
Things being in Dutch isn't a bad thing, I'm trying to learn to speak and read as much as I can before I get there (plus I like a challenge). It's not the same living in a country and not being able to speak the language. Plus being half Dutch I feel a little obliged to learn, in a good way.

Failing that there is always Google and Mac translate.

Lutin I would appreciate a tour, that would be cool. The only other person I know in Groningen is a German girl from Hamburg, you you have officially doubled the circle of people I know :D and she isn't vegan either.

What do you study/do at the University?

Since we're now chatting about life in the lowlands rather than products, I made a new thread: viewtopic.php?f=59&t=31732

Don't think so, but you might be able to find it at specialty shops in Amsterdam. (Or, you know, bring a suitcase-full with you.)

Some supermarkets sell Marmite and you can find Vitam-R at health food stores.

That probably means a shopping trip out of Groningen, then, Bhadra. I've never seen marmite in town.

Humm… guess I'm going to have to invest in one of those BIG jars then.

I wish the world embraced the amazing nature of marmite, but as the Marmite advertising campaign says:

"You either love it or you hate it"

I bought mine at a really small, neighborhood Albert Heijn in Amsterdam. I can't imagine they wouldn't have it at least at one of the larger AHs in Groningen. If I remember correctly, it's usually near things like Tabasco and Lea and Perrin's sauce.

They even have it here in Breda. If you don't find it at a grocery store, you could try an Asian market. They sometimes carry import items that aren't specifically "Asian".

Is marmite just for gravy? Is it the same as Vegemite?

Marmite is p.easy to find almost everywhere. I know this because of how hard it is to find Vegemite ;) you'll be fine though. regardless, no matter how desperate you are, Vitam-R is a substitute that leads to a mountain of regret ;)

Its similar to Vegemite, very similar. No its not just for gravy, makes for awesome vegan cheese and marmite toasties and for spreading on bread and with crisps and with so many other things. There is a cook book dedicated to it:

http://www.amazon.co.uk/Marmite-Cookboo ... 1904573096

Sadly mostly not vegetarian or even vegan, but you get the idea.

I will bare that in mind with vitamin R. I'll probably have to try it once just to be able to say with the same certainty that you have, that it is not good, but I consider myself fore armed.

Ok last random product question though not strictly vegan, can you get Earl Grey red bush tea in supermarkets?

Because its not vegan per se should I have posted it in the other three?

Thanks people. :D

You can get earl grey and red bush, but I don't think I've ever seen earl grey red bush in a regular store. You can probably get it at this chain of tea shops has a franchise in Groningen https://www.simonlevelt.nl/thee/losse-t ... earl-grey/

Good Lard, can someone help me with the potatoes? After four years, I still have no idea what potatoes I'm buying. If I want to make pierogies, which involves mashing potatoes, which ones do I choose? Any of them?

For mashing, always use kruimig.
