Attention Vegan Foodies: You Are EXCLUSIVELY Invited

We all know that vegan dining is more than just sprouts and hummus. Let's get together and celebrate healthy, decadent, and delicious vegan food. Come meet others who share this passion and let's inspire each other to greater creativity in the kitchen AND getting more connected to the source of our food here in Hawaii. Each vegan feast will feature a theme.

What we are looking for:

The People: We wish to meet up with aware, enthusiastic, learning-, growth-, and success-oriented people who are also stable, grounded, foodies who have a natural and artistic expression with vegan food. You may be a gardener or gardener wannabe. You celebrate and are committed to your vegan lifestyle.

The Food: We want to share and experience scrumptious, voluptuous, gourmet vegan home-cooked meals. We're requesting home cooked dishes incorporating local and organic ingredients, garden/farm-to-table, and as close to the source as possible. This will be an ongoing learning experience for us all.

Vegan Fest #1

Date/Time: Friday, October 15th, 6 pm
Theme: Locally Grown/Made in Hawaii
Location: Honolulu Location To Be Announced

Please reply to this email with your interest (please be sure you reply directly to Leslie, not the whole group), even if you cannot make the first feast. We want to know who the vegan foodies are and in the future will tailor the feast date and theme to YOUR preferences. More info to follow once we know who wants to play!
