COOL Cuisine is a coalition of organizations and individuals seeking more plant-based and vegan dining options. We are focused in Davis and Sacramento, CA--hoping to grow! We eat this way for many reasons: to sustain the planet, to sustain our health, and out of compassion for all living things. We create opportunities to thank restaurants that are friendly to plant-based diners and encourage those we think we can bring on board to be more welcoming by offering increased options, marked menus, and train their staff to understand our preferences.
This is our first foray exploring the chefs who have signed up with the Foodnome.com platform.
Events will be reserved-ticket, pay-in-advance meals hosted in homes rather than restaurants (if you want to be a future host and can seat 15, let us know). Event listing is here:
Chef Pip Harragin went to school in Davis, moved to Seattle and became a vegan personal chef. She just moved back to Davis. Her menu sounds delicious for a warm summer evening. We'll be eating on a screened in porch - dress accordingly and BYOB (bring your own booze). Here is the menu as envisioned now, but it could be changed a little depending on what is seasonal and fresh:
MOROCCAN-INSPIRED VEGAN SUMMER DINNER
Harissa spiced watermelon with a fresh mint salad
Stuffed eggplant with cumin baby carrots
(Eggplant stuffed with couscous, golden raisins, pomegranates, pine nuts and warm, earthy spices dressed in chermoula with a lemon tahini sauce.)
Spiced strawberry sorbet with Moroccan chocolate cake
(Warm, earthy spices such as cumin, cinnamon, and sumac add a twist to the classic sorbet and chocolate cake.)
PRICE: $20 per person, limited to 15 people
