At a dinner party a few years ago, there may have been one or two vegans at the dinner table. Fast forward to 2018, where the year’s biggest food ‘trend’ has seen even sworn carnivores make the switch to a plant-based lifestyle, with many restaurateurs following suit.

One Toronto restaurant group that has long been meeting the changing needs of their diners is IL FORNELLO. They have been offering gluten-free items and spelt crust pizza since the 80s – and now they're evolving once again with a new and delicious vegan menu.

Vegan chef Margie Cook joined the IL FORNELLO team this year, bringing her unique brand of innovative plant-based cooking to the restaurant. A vegetarian since her twenties, Cook has since become a Registered Holistic Nutritionist and Certified Vegan Lifestyle Coach and Educator, proving to the world that vegan food can be just as delicious as any omnivorous diet.

The result is a menu that goes beyond protein bowls and veggie burgers to create tasty, stand-alone vegan dishes. The dough for the wood-fired pizza, for which the restaurant is famous, is now 100% vegan, and the organic vegan wine and beer to match ensure that no guests have to miss out.

While the trend towards veganism continues to grow, not everyone has given up meat – which makes IL FORNELLO the ideal dining option. Whether your date wants steak or an avocado caesar salad, everyone will find a meal that’s just right for them.
