Raw Vegan Potluck at Drina's Art Studio

  • Jan 19, 2014 · 1:30 PM
  • Drina's Home

Join us for a Raw Vegan Potluck at Drina's lovely art studio!


We are continuing strong with our second raw vegan potluck in 2014 being held at Drina's place in Henderson. She will open up her art studio for us to mingle, which will be different and fun!

Meet like-minded people who will share their healthy living path and get ideas to realize your health goals!

You can show off your own raw food skills or bring some goodies from a raw food cafe to share at our RAW POTLUCK!

We love welcoming newbies, so don't be shy to join us!

In this meetup group we come from many different paths in life and simply love to share the endless bounty and health benefits of raw living foods. There is no better opportunity to try raw foods than right here, where you get to sample anywhere from 10 to 30 dishes lovingly crafted by people who care about what they eat!

Call Drina Fried directly for questions and further directions: [masked]. We need to have your name in advance, so that the security guard will have you on his list.

At 1:30 pm we will start our RAW VEGAN POTLUCK with meet & greet and at 2 pm we will start eating.

About our hostess Drina Fried:

Drina’s passion is to create beautiful art, which you will get to see in her studio where we are having the potluck. She patiently makes Embellished Fabric Collages,  many of which have won awards. She also paints using watermedia, both media offered in prints, gallery-wrapped, framed or unframed; and cards media offered in prints, gallery-wrapped, or framed.

Take a look at Drina’s website:

Below are some guidelines for our raw vegan potlucks

Raw Vegan Potluck: we ask you to bring a 100% raw, organic, unprocessed, non-animal based (vegan with no honey) ready-to-serve dish for as many people as have RSVP'd to this meetup MINUS 20 % (to account for no-shows). In other words, if you see 30 RSVPs on this meetup, make a dish that will serve a tasting for 20 - 24 people.

If you are attending with a guest, please consider bringing two dishes or a dish and a beverage.

Please bring a typed or neatly printed recipe to display next to your dish, ideally with copies for people to take with them if they choose so.

We also ask you to please arrive within 30 minutes of the start time of the potluck, as we usually wait for everyone to be there to do introductions. Please call or text Ina at[masked] if you can't make it on time and then we can start without you!


The below list of raw vegan dish ideas may help you to decide what to bring to our potluck events:


1. You could bring an organic fresh salad

2. There are plenty of raw recipes available online:

3. Most raw food books have raw recipes

4. Organic raw fruit, fruit salad, or raw nuts


I look forward to seeing you at the potluck - call me if you have any questions!
