NW Veg's Vegan Potluck: Portland, Eastside

  • Jul 21, 2013 · 5:00 PM
  • Friends Meeting Hall

This month we are excited to welcome world renowned chef, restaurateur and cookbook author, Mark Reinfeld! Mark is the founding chef of Blossoming Lotus and author of numerous award winning cookbooks including Vegan World Fusion Cuisine, The Taste Of The East, The 30-Minute Vegan and The Complete Idiot’s Guide to Eating Raw. Mark will be demonstrating two recipes for us out of his latest best selling cookbook, 30 Minute Vegan's Taste of Europe Learn how to perfect his Raw Ravioli with Sundried Tomato Sauce and Lavender Chocolate Bon Bons. There will be SAMPLES!

We are currently looking for a few volunteers to help Mark shop and prep for his cooking demo on Sunday July 21. Cooking experience and a heavy grasp of vegan cuisine is required. Email our Outreach and Volunteer Coordinator, Chelsea Davis, at [masked] for more information.

The potluck will be at the Friends Meeting Hall, 4312 SE Stark, Portland, OR. Come to the potluck at 5:00, the presentation at 6:30, or both! Please bring a plant-based (no animal products, including honey) main dish, salad, or dessert; a card listing its ingredients; and plates and utensils for your use. Need plant-based ideas? Click here. If you come alone, figure the amount to serve 4–6 generously; increase the amount 4 servings for each additional person in your party/family. Northwest VEG potlucks are alcohol-free events, and we start eating at about 5:15. For more information email [masked]. A donation of $2–5 per person is suggested to help cover the cost of the room rental.

    This was my first NW Veg Potluck and I thought it was great. Cooking is my passion and I can't wait to share at the next one!

    Yummy food and meeting new friends -- the best! The only reason I can't give this meetup 5 stars is because the space is consistently not adequate to accommodate the number of people who attend. Just too cramped! But I'm so glad there is a growing interest in eating healthy!!

    It says you are looking for volunteers to help shop for the cooking demonstration. Sounds like fun. What do I need to do?
