I’D FLY TO PARIS JUST FOR THIS CHEESE WALL

Shop review #36 – Un Monde vegan is a vegan shop in the center of Paris, on the north side of Le Marais. We paid them a visit during our city trip in Paris, in June. It is a reasonably sized shop, comparable to the size of organic stores like Biovita and Origin’O in Belgium. […]…

VEGAN DARK CHOCOLATE PEANUT BUTTER BROWNIES
