If you are curious about vegan cooking, this club is for you! Each month participants make three recipes from popular cookbooks then share their reflections with the group. This month will feature an in-person discussion and potluck as well as the usual zoom option.  Bring one of the dishes from the cookbook to share with other participants over a great discussion. Novice to expert cooks are welcome, as are interested non-cooks. Registration not required.

This is how the publisher describes the cookbook: “Meatless meals revamped by the Cinnamon Snail, the vegan food truck with a cult following. What’s the secret behind the Cinnamon Snail’s takeover of New York City streets? In all kinds of weather, vegetarians, vegans, and omnivores alike queue up for addictive vegan cuisine from truck owner Adam Sobel. Now Adam brings his food straight to your kitchen, along with stories of the challenges of working on a food truck while still finding ways to infuse food with imagination, love, and a pinch of perspective. Street Vegan brings the energy and passion of the Cinnamon Snail’s creative cooking from truck to table.”

In the recipe club this month we will discuss these recipes:

  • Tequila Lime Tostones – pg 90 – 91
  • Korean Barbecue Seitan – pg 130
  • Gooey Salted-Caramel Pecan Turtle Bars – pg 196
