Laura says: “You don’t have to be a chef or spend hours in the kitchen to love my delicious vegan recipes and eco-chic entertaining ideas. Over the past 20 years, I have developed countless compassionate and quick recipes that are easy for anyone to prepare, targeting folks like myself who do not have much time to cook, but want to fit healthier choices into their everyday meal planning. Many of these dishes are so tempting you’ll even win over the “meat and potatoes” crowd!”

What: Chef Pati Jinich is coming here!

When: February 11-16, 2016

About Pati: Pati Jinich was born and raised in Mexico, and this is how she explains her love of food. Her journey to her work was unusual, though. After getting her masters in Latin American Studies and working in policy research at Inter American Dialog, she started obsessively thinking about food rather than politics. She hasn’t looked back since taking the plunge into the culinary world. That’s just fine with us! Pati has opened Mexican cuisine to the world. Don’t miss her visit!
