Try Veganuary with Graffeg

Here at Graffeg we publish a large range of cookery books, some of which consist of or feature some delicious plant-based meals perfect to introduce you to a new way of cooking. This January, we'll be sharing three new plant-based recipes each week to celebrate Veganuary, and we'd love for you to get involved.
