Buffalo Monthly Live Food Potluck w/ Knife Skills and Mandoline Demo

Each month we'll have a different lively presentation, food demo, or educational talk about our health and well being.

This month we'll practice knife skills and see what a great tool a mandoline is. William Romanow trained at The Living Light Culinary Institute in CA and would love to help you learn knife skills, hands on!  Bring your favorite knife or use one of ours, and streamline your food prep time.

We're raffling off a brand new Kyocera Adjustable Mandoline Slicer with Handguard, it's got a ceramic blade and is super to use! It's a $25 value, Tix - $2, or 3/$5 - all proceeds benefit future potlucks.

After dinner we have an excellent  dvd to show called -  Dr. McDougall Disputes Major Medical Treatments, the segment on Osteoporosis  ... which will be a really good eye opener.

This event is open to anyone who wishes to come.

Required:

Your own plate, fork, spoon and cup.

A vegan, live food dish to share.

Requested:

A dish preferably without added sweeteners (except fruit), or other substances that folks commonly react poorly too.  Soy products, nutritional yeast, gluten, mushrooms, xylitol, agave, molasses, and other substances are common problems for many people, so please try to be considerate when preparing your dish.  If you prefer to use these ingredients, consider making your dish in two bowls, one with all your usual ingredients and one without the ingredients listed above.

Optional:

We love to eat local, organic and home-grown foods especially.

In the past there have been demonstrations on how to grow wheat-grass, how to open a young coconut, how to make a delicious green drink, and more.  Come and learn, share and grow with us!

If you're new to raw vegan cuisine entirely, consider bringing something simple, such as a sliced melon, or washed leaves of lettuce with a cup of chopped tomato and fresh-squeezed lemon juice in a small bowl with your favorite seasonings for dipping the lettuce in to.  (It's great when folks bring plain lettuce leaves with them.  It makes it possible to turn any dish that someone brought into a lettuce-wrap!)

This event repeats on the last Sunday of every month except holidays.  On holidays there may still be a potluck during the month, but on a different date.  Because meetup will schedule these automatically, it may actually show as happening on a Sunday that is a holiday when it is not.
