Our very accomplished chef of 24 years, Chef Gary Alinder has a blog that you can choose to sign up for or you can access it for vegetarian/vegan recipes that are often prepared for the Monday night dinners. http://macrochef.word...

Our primary activity is offering a Gourmet Vegetarian Vegan Dinner every Monday night in Palo Alto, at the First Baptist Church, 305 North California Avenue at Bryant, 1/4 mile East of Alma. (This is rented space. There is no religious affiliation with the dinners).

This is a full vegan dinner which includes soup, grain, beans or bean products, vegetables, dessert, and beverage, prepared by expert natural foods Chef Gary Alinder, our Chef since our inception in 1987. Dinner price is $18. If you can't dine with us, you can order a takeout!

All are welcome at our Dinners, vegetarian or not. The Dinners are particularly helpful for those who want to eat a healthier diet, but may not know how to get started. Many who attend may have the same health concerns you have.

Seating is communal; all are friendly; and newcomers are welcome! Attendance ranges from 60 to 100, with a full spectrum of ages spanning newborns to grandparents.

Those new to the area, or those wishing to join a new activity are members of this Meetup where you can reserve your dinner space online by Monday morning at 9:30 a.m. Otherwise, reservations may be made via telephone (650 599-3320). Many long-term friendships have started at a Monday Dinner, and are renewed every week!
(If you are new to the Dinners, please tell our host, Jay Whitcraft, at the Welcome table, and he or one of the volunteers will be happy to assist you).

When a noteworthy speaker or other event is available, we feature an After-Dinner Lecture or Event. Lectures are usually on macrobiotic or other health and food related topics, by a variety of speakers including macrobiotic counselors, medical doctors, cooking teachers, and people who have dealt successfully with serious diseases using macrobiotic or similar health approaches. We have a pass-the-hat policy for our events; we suggest a donation of $5-10.

Dinner Menus are published in advance and accompany the Newsletter. The Newsletter lists and describes After-Dinner Events, cooking classes, take-out meals, services, restaurants, and markets. The Dinner Menus and Newsletter are published every two months, six times per year.
