Wednesday July 11: Vegan Greek Family Style Feast

Saturday July 14: Avant Garden, Vegan Molecular Gastronomy Dinner

So often, the term ‘vegan’ conjures images of barefoot hippies munching on granola and acai bowls. This meal aims to deconstruct, scramble, electrify, and reconfigure that notion, as we drag that old stereotype kicking and screaming into the modern age. We’ll be combining the old world with the new, as we accent organic produce and…

The one we’ll be making for this evening is mezzaluna, which means ‘half moons.’  We’re making them using a tomato dough, and filling them with…

Valentines Day Aphrodisiac Dinner @ Moonlight Vulture!
