Want to celebrate the animals with the country’s fanciest vegans this summer? Of course you (and your money) do! That’s why you’re attending PCRM’s Passion for Compassion: Creating a Better Future for Animals and People even in the Hamptons on Saturday, August 9!

Get your tickets here! This year there’s a special free shuttle from NYC; it says RSVP by July 15, but there may still be a few spots available, so call/email ASAP to get on there. We are imagining it’ll be an amazing vegan party bus! YAY I ALWAYS WANTED ONE OF THOSE.

Suite ThreeOhSix supper club: Vegan fine dining on another level!  »

image

I went to a fundraising dinner at Suite ThreeOhSix last night and I had to share the pictures with you guys because HOLY CANNOLI! 

Meave and I attended an event at Suite ThreeOhSix a while back and since then, I’ve wanted to go to one of their dinners. So when I heard Leanne of Vaute was hosting a dinner to benefit the Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine, I knew it was the perfect time to go! And go I did. 

Because Leanne is only the most adorable, the menu was inspired by her favorite childhood foods; but head chef Daphne Cheng gave these childhood comfort foods a grown up makeover! Here’s the menu:

This pic is from Suite ThreeOhSix’s instagram.

Is your mind blown?? I believe it’s probably blown. The pop tart is pictured at the top. It was my favorite dish of the night! The date compote filling was amazing. 

The second course was the open face grilled cheese you see below. I loved it!

My brother was my date because he’s the fanciest person I know. His favorite dish was the corn fritters. This is them, they were topped with greens and some flowery bits:

Next up was the mac and cheese:

This was great as well (are you noticing a pattern?). But the dessert! Oh the dessert! Strawberry shortcake, gone all civilized:

image

The strawberry ice cream shot was coconut based and very delicious. I don’t normally go in for strawberry ice cream but this was excellent. I also like that the cake was soda biscuit-like instead of sponge cake. That’s the way it should be! Death to sponge cake strawberry shortcakes!

Suite Three Oh So Fancy!

If you can’t tell, Suite ThreeOhSix is hella fancy. Unless you are a baller, it will probably be a rare treat. But it’s worth it! And I think the dinners are usually raising funds for good causes like PCRM. And they are always vegan! So make sure you sign up on their email list so you can hear about all the wonderful upcoming events. And I hope you enjoyed these pictures! The lighting was suspiciously good for food photography…

NYC: Get a six course vegan dinner and support healthy school lunches for the kiddies!  »

image

Hi guys! Remember when Meave and I went to Suite ThreeOhSix and had the best time? Well now you can go to Suite ThreeOhSix and have the best time too! AND raise money for the Coalition for Healthy School Food so that the kiddies get veggies at school. I believe we refer to that as a “win-win.”

The six course dinner is taking place a week from today, aka February 25th, aka MY BIRTHDAY. Get your tickets here. Tickets are 100 bones…I know, but it’s a fundraiser and the food is sure to be hella fancy. There will also be a silent auction so you can spend more money. ALSO RAFFLES OMG MY FAVORITE. So go! Eat! Drink! Be merry!

Dessert from the tasting Meave and I went to! Totes pretty.

Suite ThreeOhSix tasting by chef Daphne Cheng!  »

Megan Rascal and I are the luckiest vegans, I swear. We were recently invited to a press event at Suite ThreeOhSix, a vegan supperclub and cooking school featuring the fancy work of chef Daphne Cheng. It was delicious! All of it! So delicious we couldn’t get photos of all of it, which stinks, but we got some, so here they are for you.

image

Zucchini bisque, with red cabbage, cilantro, and chili oil. I had two of these. Not a real strong zucchini flavor, but very refreshing with the cabbage and herbs.

image

French lentil pastry with parsley scallion sauce and whipped bell pepper cream. I could eat the whipped bell pepper cream all day, it was rich AND light, and delicately bell peppery. Plus, lentils in a pastry pocket!

image

Cultured cashew cheese on baguette, plus mache and carrots with toasted buckwheat in a champagne dill vinaigrette. You guys know nut cheeses and salads are my favorites, and these were both very good. There were also oil-cured olives on the plate with the cheese that I did not photograph, but rest assured, they were also delicious.

image

Truffled ricotta, smoked agave, and broccoli microgreens on crisped yuba. I believe this was Megan’s favorite dish of the night. I was really into the truffled ricotta, of course, and the texture of the yuba was a nice change from bread. At this point I may have had too many glasses of wine to have remembered to go back to the spot with the best lighting.

image

Rosewater yogurt ice cream with apricots. So refreshing! I don’t really go in for rose-flavored (or -scented) anything, but this was very good, especially with the tart apricot. The texture was perfect, too, so velvety!

Delicious things I failed to photograph: rambutan on the half-skin; chocolate mezcal truffles with coconut chips (of which I ate like four). And she sent us home with gorgeous little brownies!

Suite ThreeOhSix hosts supperclubs and workshop and demo classes in the loft space, hosted by chef Daphne, who is somehow this talented at 24 years old. For more information, check them out online. Vegan food is really coming into its own; we already know it tastes good, but the techniques being applied to craft these gorgeous, delicious little works of art are really outstanding. The omnis are out of excuses.
