Cook Food with Lisa Jervis tonight! »
Hey you guys! Did you know: Lisa Jervis, who founded Bitch Magazine, wrote a vegan cookbook. It is called Cook Food and it sounds pretty great. Honestly though I can’t imagine Lisa Jervis not doing something great, but that is more a testament to her knowledge and skills than any feelings of hero-worship.
Tonight from 7 to 8:30 at Modern Times (888 Valencia at 20th Streets), Lisa Jervis will give a reading from her cookbook, as well as a demonstration of how to make a corn, tomato and basil salad. Fancy!
In case you’re not convinced you should go (and you’re a fool if you’re not convinced), I will give you a few more reasons why Lisa Jervis is super:
1. She went to Oberlin, just like your own Maria!
2. She gave an interview recently during which she was asked, “How she could reconcile being a feminist and having a book that encourages women to get back in the kitchen,” her reaction to which the interviewer describes as “facile.” Because, really.
3. Bitch is really a fantastic magazine, and she created it!
4. The recipes are all about tasty ingredients, prepared simply and deliciously.
Now, remember: Cook Food, Modern Times, 7 to 8:30 p.m., and tell us all about it in the comments afterward, please!
Colleen Patrick-Goudreau and Bryant Terry at Modern Times on Tuesday! »
Compassionate Cooks founder Colleen Patrick-Goudreau is celebrating the release of her new cookbook, The Vegan Table. I just got this book and I LOVES it already! It’s organized in sections to make entertaining easy, whether it’s for two people or 200! I hate how I sounded just there but it’s TRUE. Damn Colleen for bringing out my deeply hidden kindness with her relentless adorability! She’ll be joined by Kellogg Food and Society Policy Fellow Bryant Terry, who is also celebrating the release of his cookbook Vegan Soul Kitchen. The evening will feature a book signing, analysis and discussion of current food justice issues, and samples of their new recipes that demonstrate how deliciousness need not be lost for food to be ethical. This takes place TOMORROW, Tuesday, June 16th at 7 pm at Modern Times Bookstore! See you there, party vegans! Woo!
