If you're reading this right now today is your day!
If you are someone who really wants to attend our November Healthy Holiday Event
and are held back by money.
I'm offering 3 scholarships for Healthy Holidays on November 20th
FOR THOSE IN NEED!
This will be another extravaganza You Do NOT Want to Miss!
The price of the event is $75 and is well worth it
for classes with Heather and Jennifer Cornbleet
and a spectacular Thanksgiving dinner with community by The chefs of Encuentro, a restaurant in Oakland co-owned by Chef Eric Tucker of the famous, vegan restaurant Millennium.
I am offering 3 tickets at $50 a piece for those who have wanted to go but simply can't afford it!
To respond to this offer
Please first RSVP for the event with me
I will be taking the first people who RSVP
respond to this e-mail by replying to it.
Don't forget to give me your phone as well as e-mail address- the best one to contact to you at!
If 4 people sign up Heather will pitch in for a 4th scholaship.
Don't Delay- I expect these will go fast!
OH_ Also- here are the details of the event:
For those of you lucky enough to have attended Heather Haxo Phillips November Extravaganza last year- she's hosting another great event this November 20th from 4-8:30 p.m.
The main purpose of this event is so that all of us who have embraced the raw food path can experience the pleasures of holiday food in the company of like-minded folks. We will also learn from the best of the raw food chefs, Heather and Jennifer Cornbleet, how to create these feasts for our family. Many, like Kevin and Annmarie Gianni, have made converts of their families when they bring their delicious raw food to family gatherings- (my sister in law always asks me to make Heather's Kale salad).
According to Heather, Jennifer Cornbleet’s recipe book is the best out there. Jennifer rarely gives classes at any other venues besides at Living Light Cullinary Institute. She will be teaching at this event and you will want to catch her. Heather and Jenny will teach you the components you need to make your holidays incredible.
This event will be something that you should not miss! It will be a great occasion to learn and experience the heights of raw food creations.
Dinner will be by the chefs of Encuentro, a restaurant in Oakland co-owned by Chef Eric Tucker of the famous, vegan restaurant Millennium.
The price for this event is $75 and it is limited to 40 people. Registration for this event
will be given to those who RSVP here- but I need to remind people that unless you register and pay at the link given, you will not be registered and may miss your spot.
Heather also would like to make this event accessible for a people that find the price difficult to afford. She is selling her Holiday Traditions Cookbook for $20 tax included (which is a deal for meetup members) and will donate $5 of each book sold to meetup members to provide tickets at a discount to members who would like to go and could use some financial support. You can pick up the book at any upcoming meetup.
“Imagine that your holiday experiences could leave you refreshed and healthy, rather than heavy and exhausted. At this unique event, you will create a game plan for a fun and delicious holiday season.
The Healthy Holiday Survival Course will include:
• Raw food classes with Chef Heather Haxo Phillips and best-selling author Jennifer Cornbleet. Learn crowd-pleasing finger foods including cultured vegetables and nut cheese, holiday staples such as stuffing and relish and desserts including pumpkin pie and chocolate candy cups
