Oakland Veg Week: Bryant Terry Talk and Book Signing

Tuesday | April 22, 2014 | 6:30 pm — 7:30 pm

Whole Foods Market – Oakland | 230 Bay Place, Oakland, CA 94610

Author Bryant Terry will be giving a talk and signing copies of his new book Afro-Vegan.

Rising star chef and food justice activist Bryant Terry is known for his simple, creative, and delicious vegan dishes inspired by African American cooking. In this landmark cookbook, he remixes foods of the African diaspora to create exciting and approachable recipes such as Jamaican Patties Stuffed with Maque Choux, Berebere-Spiced Black-Eyed Pea Sliders, Crispy Teff-Grit Cakes with Eggplant, Tomatoes, and Peanuts, and Groundnut Stew with Winter Vegetables and Cornmeal Dumplings. He also explores key African ingredients that are popular in Caribbean and Southern dishes—like okra—tracing their history and giving them cultural context. Afro-Vegan will delight Bryant Terry fans; vegetarians and vegans looking for exciting new recipes; cooks interested in African, Afro-Caribbean, and Southern cuisine; and health- and eco-conscious eaters. Come hear from the author and get your copy of Afro-Vegan signed.
