image

Remember when we told you that Chef Ayinde Howell was trying to open a food truck here in our great city? Well, now’s your chance to eat some of his scrumptious food!! AND, his co-author of The Lusty Vegan cookbook and relationship manifesto (out October 14th), Zoe Eisenberg, will be there as well! Let me assure you that the food at this event will knock your wool-free socks off. I was one of the recipe testers for this cookbook and was incredibly impressed with everything I tested. I have also been to an event catered by Chef Ayinde and the man is a culinary sorcerer! Plus, look at the menu: 

Balsamic & Truffle Mac & Yease
Citrus & Salt Pickled Fennel Salad
Hearts of Baltimore Crab Cake with Garlic Dill Aioli
Fillet De Soy with Blood Orange and Napa Cabbage Slaw
Fresh Biscuit Strawberry Shortcake with Vanilla Ice Cream

I.can’t.even. 

Buy your tickets! Then, RSVP (very limited seating) on Facebook. And enjoy stuffing your face with delicious foods!!

Celebrate Mother’s Day with a special vegan brunch in Berkeley!  »

image

I have to admit that lately, I’ve been slightly envious of those of you in the Bay Area. Since I left in January, there have been so many fantastic vegan happenings: Hella Vegan Eats is everywhereRepublic of V opened and the S + M chefs are popping up around town! And now, I am stoked to announce, From the Garden is hosting a Greenhouse brunch, just in time for Mother’s Day! Kyle and Ashley make sure to point out that, though it is a “Mother’s Day Brunch,” their elegant feast is for everyone and anyone who would like to attend. Go, go, go, because their food is absolutely fantastic! Bring your mom, your friend who’s a mom, friends who have no affiliation with motherhood except that they came out of one, or just yourself. You can meet new, fun people there!

Their presentation alone is gorgeous! 

This brunch takes place in Kyle and Ashley’s greenhouse in Berkeley, on May 11, at noon. There is a possibility if the noon brunch fills up quickly, they will add another seating later in the afternoon. The theme is “Flowers for the Ones You Love,” which could totally apply to yourself, no judgement here. They will be serving three courses, complete with drink pairings (you can request non-alcoholic), all made with edible flowers from their greenhouse! Kyle and Ashley are asking for $45 per person. For more details (like location), and to make a reservation, email Kyle at chefkyleknies@gmail.com!

I attended a From the Garden brunch in early January, and it was phenomenal. One of the best meals of my life! I still think about that Greenhouse Mary and bacon-avocado-biscuit breakfast sandwich. 

You can follow From the Garden on FacebookTwitter and Instagram for updates and information on future events. Word has it there’s a Rhizocali tempeh dinner in the works!

LA: Come to the Church of Seitan this Sunday!   »

image

Attention Los Angeles vegans! The Vegan Cannibal is putting on another Church of Seitan event at the Verdugo Bar this Sunday, February 16th. There will be food, pop-up vendors and BINGO….WITH VEGAN PRIZES!!! Best part (I know, I know, what could be better than prizes??)is you yell, “VEGAN,” instead of “bingo.” Hella cute!

This event’s vendors are Plant Food for People (who sponsored last month’s TACO EATING CONTEST), Vegan Chica (empanadas!), The Shugah Mama (cookies!), and Piece of Cake (cake-duh!). Even if you don’t like bingo, this line up is a killer reason to show up! [Ed. note: what kind of masochist doesn’t like bingo?!]
Campy Crush will be selling gifty stuff, if you need to do some late V-Day shopping (or just cuz). Plus, they had this video from 90210 on their website, which makes me love them already!
RSVP on their Facebook event page, and invite all your friends!
