Potluck, Demo and Live Music

Join Us for a potluck, raw food demo and live music by Amanda Rogers.

Please bring a vegan dish to share. It will be helpful to have a paper with the ingredients or recipe available to share with all. We have access to the kitchen for last minute preparations and have the ability to reheat items.

There will be a raw food cooking demo and tasting by Johanna Sophia. At the Expo she showed us how to make delicious fruit chocolate mousse. There will be more details to follow for her demo and talk on eating more raw. More information about her can be found at http://www.nyvegetarianexpo.org/2012/food-demos/fruit-chocolate-mousse-and-chocolate-truffles/

Live Music by Amanda Rogers!. Often compared to the likes of Tori Amos for her fairy esthetic and classical roots, Tom Waits for her dark and literary lyrics, and Carole King for her Tin Pan Alley Pop sensibility, Upstate NY native, Amanda Rogers, has continued her 15 year musical journey on her self paved career path as an original and independent touring and recording artist as well as a self-proclaimed Muse. She has 8 album in tow, multiple international tours solo as well as with a full rock band and as a folk duo, numerous guest appearances on other albums and features in newspapers and magazines (Rolling Stone, Visions, Music Express, Esquire, and Classic Rock Magazine, as well and many others).
Amanda is excited to be performing a set of us of her recent music. She has also been vegan for 16 years and meat-free for 20.
More information can be found on her website http://www.amandaspiano.com/

To offset the costs of the rental, demo and music $10 will be collected at the door or $5 from students or lower income.

    The food, music, and demonstration were very enjoyable. Unlike most potlucks, it was nice to be able to sample everything and not worry about what I might have to eat around!

    I have to cancel :-(. Stuff at the school we didn't know about until the last minute~ Now I'm going to have a REALLY big salad on Sunday. I wish I knew some of y'all already, so you could come over~!

    Any cancellations? My son might want to come with me. Would that be OK?

    March 9, 2013

    • Punit K J.

      I think there were 37 before. Now there are 36 so we should be fine if your son comes too.

      Well as it turns out he won't be coming. He had a better offer:) Teenagers!

    Maybe we could get an idea of what people are bringing so we don't end up with 25 salads.
    Can we push this open a bit to include vegetarian food?

    • libran

      I am thinking of garlic green beans (cooked by with a bit of soy sauce and rice vinegar)...My usual contribution at Thanksgiving dinners !
