PROFESSOR BENJAMIN ZEPHANIAH CELEBRATES BOOK AWARD NOMINATION WITH VEGAN CHOCOLATE CAKE
Professor Benjamin Zephaniah celebrated being shortlisted for a Costa Book Award with an amazing looking plant-based chocolate cake.
Zephaniah - who is a dedicated vegan - received the cake from his publisher.
He said: "How I love my publishers Simon Schuster UK.
"Today they gave me a big, big vegan cake just because I'm on the Costa Book Awards shortlist.
"Then I go to Brunel University and find students have given me more edible vegan sweetness. I'm so happy. I can feel the love. Thanx to all of you."
