It's almost that time again!! My main question this year is how do I watch it in Americaland? I'm in Austin and I don't particularly want to watch it at a Russian bar where the only vegan option is a salad!

This doesn't answer your question at all, but I'm going to an annual Eurovision party this year and am super duper excited :) Although, I've heard it's all very ballad-heavy this time around....

We party guests all have to pick a competing country and cook a relevant dish. I picked the Netherlands and have no idea what to make! (I might have to get a curly sausage....)

Cornelie is Dutch and has a blog; maybe you could use one of her recipes? https://www.vegetus.nl They're in Dutch, but if you see a picture of something you like, any of the Dutchies on the boards would be happy to translate it for you.

Yay! I love a good Eurovision potluck. Let us know what you decide to make! I am less enamoured by the idea that it's ballad heavy this year though, that's no fun!

I lived in Holland a looooooooooong time ago, (pre-vegan), and used to enjoy the bitterballen, so I'm going to try and veganise those for a start. Then I found a recipe for glazed cherry pie, so that's my pudding option, but I'll have a good look at the blog lutin mentioned above too for any extra ideas/tips :)

Jojo you need to find a feed with Graham Norton, it's not the same without the British commentary!

I thought our entry for this year is surprisingly good which means it'll do terribly.

I'm pretty sure you could have a vegan potluck to watch this thing. Check the popular Austin Vegan Facebook groups and I bet they'll be all about it. There's an official stream online that can be watched here in the US.

Wait, was it last night? I just realized the timing may not be prime time here in the States too.

Timing wise it's weird because it's at 2 in the afternoon here. I think every vegan I know here is heading to a wedding on Saturday but I am incredibly tempted to watch it at a Russian bar in town that's advertising that they're having a screening party. I do need to dye my hair this weekend though so I might do that, eat a whole lotta Garden fish with some chips and watch Eurovision with the PPK!

BAH I'm going out on Saturday I'm gonna miss it. I would sky plus it but it's not the same watching it later. It's best when there is a bunch of you watching it live.

I found it! Thanks tunnelbear. It really wouldn't be the same without Graham!

I loved Serbia, Belgium, Latvia and Georgia. Everything else felt like formulaic whiny ballads.
