Monthly Vegan Potluck with Miyoko Schinner

The potluck is at 5pm but at 6:15, we will have a presentation by Miyoko Schinner, author of the widely acclaimed book Artisan Vegan Cheese, which as of this writing, is the number one best seller in the Amazon.com "Cheese & Dairy" category! Miyoko will present a slide show called "In the Land of Milk and Cookies", about her journey from Japan, how she became a cheese addict, kicked the habit and then wrote the book on vegan cheese. Be sure to check out Miyoko's website at ArtisanVeganLife.com.

Join us at 5pm before the presentation, for great food and conversation at our monthly vegan potluck! Remember, you don't have to be vegan or vegetarian to attend. Just show up with a vegan dish to share with at least 8 people. Vegan simply means no animal products — no meat, dairy, eggs or honey.

Please also remember to bring your own plate, cup and silverware utensils. We would like to make this a waste-free event.

We are deeply grateful to the Sonoma Humane Society for continuing to make their classroom available to us for our potlucks and other events. The Sonoma Humane Society is just west of Llano Rd. on the north side of Highway 12, between Santa Rosa and Sebastopol (look for the big metal dog). You can park around back if you'd like, the classroom is the furthest left door on the back of the building. For more information: CompassionateLivingOutreach.org.

    This day has been SO busy for me and it's still not over. I don't think I will be able to make it to tonight's meeting/dinner/program. My apologies to all. Fortunately, I saw Miyoko's presentation in Petaluma a couple of months ago. I know it will be a revelation for those of you who are not familiar with her. Enjoy!
