Back by popular demand, the Brecksville Raw Potluck is meeting in the Brecksville Reservation once again!!

The social time will start at 6:30 pm and we will begin eating at 7:00 pm. If you'd like to just hear the evening presentation, it will begin around 8:00.

The evening's presentation will be a discussion on using nature's natural flavorings: herbs, spices and other enhancers in the form of essential oils. Deb Haltuch, Macrobiotic Chef and Reflexology therapist and Gloria Zabala, Health Coach will educate, entertain and excite your palate. Learn about the immune boosting properties of specific plants and how to use them in your daily cooking. Experience the samples that will be available to taste.

Please bring your smile, a hungry appetite, and a raw vegan (organic if possible) dish that has not been heated over about 110 degrees to share with 6-8 people. If you are a creative type then by all means invent something really unique. If you are a newbie or a more simple foods oriented individual then just stop at the market and pick up something raw and fresh that you think will suit. If you are coming as a couple, please bring an extra large, double, or a second entree. If you are coming directly from work and can't bring anything, please still come, as your friendship is of most importance and we usually have plenty of food for everyone.

The entrance to the Brecksville Reservation is off Chippewa Road (Route 82) and Brecksville Road (Route 21). The entrance street is called Chippewa Creek Drive and is across the street from the Brecksville Shopping Center where Heinen’s is located. The Harriet Keeler pavilion is less than a mile down the road on the left hand side. There is plenty of parking just off the road on both the left and right side. Any questions, just call Gloria at 440-897-5052.

A special message from Sandie is: "Because this is an all plant based raw vegan (mostly organic) gathering I would ask everyone to respect the request to keep the potluck just that. No animal flesh or animal by-products, please. And no cooked vegan or processed vegan food, please. We are all about being vegan and raw. Fresh, ripe, vegan, raw and organic (if possible). Also, please refrain from using colognes and perfumes being considerate of those with sensitivities and allergies." Thank you for understanding.
