About this blog: I've been attracted to food for good and bad reasons for many years. From eating disorder to east coast culinary school, food has been my passion, profession & nemesis. I've been a sugar addict, a 17-year vegetarian, a food and environment pioneer, macrobiotic, Master Cleanser, ayurvedic, and officially-designated health-nut or party-girl (depending on the year). Professionally, I've worn many industry hats including: line cook, corporate chef, Food Coach, caterer, product developer, restaurant reviewer, culinary school teacher, corporate wellness educator, food co-op clerk, author, and even Cirque-du-Soleil lead popcorn concessioner! For years I managed an outdoor kitchen, deep in the bear-infested woods of Tahoe, and also for hospitals (the most unhealthy kitchen I ever worked in?), Singapore high-rises, mule-pack trips, Canadian catholic rectories, and more events than I could ever recall. Yet I still keep discovering. Actually, I adapt everyday by new lessons learned from teachers, customers and students. However there is one food truth I now hold sacrosanct: Eaters are motivated by pleasure. So no matter what we discuss here - recipes or restaurants, food politics or pairings, local events, food as art, or even as God, I will always come from a high-vibe, party perspective. Oh I do still long to change the world with great tasting food, but know in my heart, "If it ain't fun, it don't get done!" So - wanna come to the Food Party? By the way - it's a potluck. (Hide)

Uploaded: Aug 20, 2019
Summer’s not over yet. Here’s your invitation to some plant-forward outside-fun, sponsored by the impassioned folks of Green Town Los Altos
, a community group walking their talk, and inspiring us all to live a little more lightly on dear ol’ planet earth.
Eating Green on the Green
Sunday, August 25
11 AM – 2 PM
Third Street “Green,” Los Altos
When it comes to plant-based foods, what’s not to like? It’s good for our planet, good for your health, and good for the animals.
Explore the benefits of plant-based foods in a relaxed outdoor setting. We will have tables, staffed with experts, presenting the main challenges of animal agriculture and offering positive and easy-to-implement solutions.
• Discover the environmental impacts of animal agriculture - on the climate and on water resources and land use.
• Learn about the life of farmed animals.
• Discuss with a physician the risks of a diet rich in animal products and the nutritional benefits of plant-based food.
• Get inspired for your plant-based journey with new recipes, cookbooks, and shopping advice from a vegan restaurateur.
See how you can make a positive impact on the environment, your health and animal welfare with every bite you take.
Join us on Third Street (between Main & State Streets) with live music from 11am to 2pm. You might get lucky and go home with a prize!
Hosted by the GreenTown Los Altos
Eating Green campaign.
