Monthly Vegan Brunch

On a Sunday of January, a blogger (who is not vegan) came to my vegan brunch. Guess what! She loved the food. Read her blog post (see link below). And check out next month's menu: old favorites & new items.

This is reservation-only event and guests must pay in advance. Use PayPal button on website http://ZestWishes.CO (click 'EVENTS' tab). Past events were hosted at Burma-Tokyo Restaurant. Due to increasing popularity of these vegan brunches, a more spacious venue is being considered and this post will be updated accordingly. 

Join Lean Chef en Route/ Zest Wishes to enjoy all-you-can-eat vegan brunch items crafted by Chef Mya Zeronis, using non-GMO, local and organic ingredients and NO refined sugar, chemically-processed, mass-manufactured, textured soy protein isolates, imitation meats and cheeses. 

Chef Mya has a background in globally-inspired contemporary American cuisine, and was recently praised by Pittsburgh Magazine and Muddy Melissa blog. Her vegan-friendly Around The World Pop-Up Dinner Series scored a chef profile in Pittsburgh Post-Gazette and write-up by Pop City Media
