On June 25, 1967, the Beatles sang “All You Need Is Love” in the first ever live global television broadcast. 400 million people watched from 26 countries via satellite. A full 42 years later, Beatle fan Faith Cohen designated June 25 as Global Beatles Day as a ‘thank you note and love letter’ to the Fab Four.

The English band is widely regarded as the most influential group in rock and roll, changing global unity forever. The Beatles brought the world together in a way no one had before.

The Beatles loved to write about food, from “Strawberry Fields Forever” and “Mean Mr. Mustard” to “Marmalade Skies” and the “Savoy Truffle”.
And of course Paul McCartney is one of the highest profile plant-based enthusiasts on the planet, having launched the Meat Free Monday campaign in 2009 along with daughters Mary and Stella.
In celebration of Global Beatles Day, food and McCartney’s great contribution to plant-based living, we are excited to share Stella McCartney’s recipe Summer Coleslaw with you. Enjoy this special day and spread the love with friends and family!
