Don’t miss Miyoko Schinner of Now & Zen tonight! »
Anyone who remembers the UnTurkey, HipWhip, and all those other Now & Zen products (like the UnChicken cutlets with fake crispy skin, SO GOOD) that mysteriously disappeared from the shelves in 2006 won’t want to miss this tonight. Miyoko Schinner will be presenting her latest cooking DVD and giving out samples at the Mission Station Community Room, 630 Valencia St. at 17th Street, at 6 p.m. Here’s the press release that I’m too lazy to summarize:
Author, chef and cooking instructor Miyoko Schinner has created and promoted healthful, vegan cuisine for 30 years. As the founder of Now and Zen, initially a restaurant and then vegan food manufacturer with nationwide distribution, she developed products such as the UnTurkey, HipWhip, a line of gourmet vegan cakes, and a low-fat vegan chocolate chip cookie that is still enjoyed by customers on United Airlines. She is the author of three vegan cookbooks and is a former contributor to publications such as Vegetarian Times magazine.
Along with the presentation, enjoy a fabulous vegan dinner handcrafted by Patricia Allen Koot, NC, certified Nutrition Educator. Patricia’s dinners continue to receive excellent reviews. This totally health-supporting vegan dinner will be made without eggs, dairy or honey, and prepared without oil or added sugars. Patricia makes a real effort to accommodate food allergies and intolerances, so do email or call her if you have a special need.
Best of all, the dinner is all-you-can-eat. Don’t worry about serving size, fill your plate several times over, and take some home for lunch and dinner the next day.
The event asks for a $15 minimum donation, which covers the all-you-can-eat dinner and whatever else you can stuff in your pockets. RSVP to 707/ 774-1904 or send an email. I just called and there are still a few spots left, so hurry!
