    Informative and valuable event.
    Although I already knew about basic vegan nutrition and flavor combinations, I was surprised to learn a few new tricks/tips, and so was very pleased to have made the trek to San Rafael and spend the evening with smart, outgoing and sociable folks. Cherie is a very accomplished and generous speaker. Many thanks to Alicia for providing a beautiful and comfortable setting for this well-planned, worthwhile event.
