Plant Based Food from Around the World
During 2017 our editor Dave Wise celebrated a different world festival every week by cooking food from the countries in which the festival was being held. Here are the best 75 recipes that came out of the project.
From Christmas in Sweden to the French Wine Harvest via the Voodoo Festival of Benin, from Elvis Week in the USA to Ramadan in Egypt to the Mexican Day of the Dead, you'll find inspiration for your cooking here (as well as a 'How To' guide for perfect pizza - it's all about water and air temp!).
All funds from the sale of this book are donated to the MSPCA (the Maltese Society for the Protection and Care of Animals). Suggested donation for this book is 5 Pounds/Dollars but please feel free to give more, all money goes to help the animals.
We hope you enjoy this recipe book! Please pass on the news of it to your friends if you will. On behalf of the animals of the MSPCA, we thank you.

I’d just passed the half marathon point in a personal best time of 1:26, my head was up, I was still smiling and to an outsider it might’ve looked like I was doing just fine. But there was the twinge in my hamstring to nurse – it’d been there at the start of the race and it was getting worse...Read More
ATB is one of the best known Canadian races on the calendar, with the distinction of being older than Boston. The iconic climb late in the race that is short but at a crucial time, combined with the Grim Reaper taunting runners at the appropriate place (the Hamilton Cemetery) make it a memorable event....Read More

This is quite possibly my favourite race of the season, despite the fact that I’m far from a good 5k runner, and that it’s usually pretty cold this early in the year. It’s just such a good atmosphere, the Achilles charity does excellent work helping the disabled get into sport, and Steam Whistle beer is...Read More

Team Trek and Run is committed to Hiking, Cycling, Canoeing and Running as green, clean and mindfully as possible. That means trying to only use products that are as good for the environment, and the people who make them, as they are for us and also eating and living as ethically as we can manage to.
We make event films, hotel reviews and travel documentaries that are regularly listed as 'most watched' for events or locations. Visit our YouTube Channel Here.
We don't take paid advertising on this site but we will tell you about companies that we currently use ourselves and whom we feel are trying to do the right thing, or whom are at least producing a product whose qualities add to our world more than it's production takes away. At the moment those companies include Salba Chia, Helly Hansen, Brooks Running, Tailwind Nutrition and Ultimate Direction. Go check them out by clicking the links; their ethics are good, their product is excellent and they have many social initiatives going on that say to us that they're interested in something beyond the usual business of making a profit.
During 2018 the Trek and Run Team will be taking part in many UK, Canadian and International events. Keep an eye on our Facebook page for details of free race entries available.

ABOUT TREK AND RUN
We run, we hike, we swim, we bike, we travel. And then we write honestly about it all and make non glossy films as an alternative to the advertiser-focused, unsustainable and largely unethical sports, activity and travel magazines that tend to pass as our mainstream media nowadays.
