Oakland Veg Week: Eating Meat-Free Is Easy As 1-2-3

Wednesday | April 23, 2014 | 6:00 pm — 8:00 pm

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

A store tour and cooking demo with Chef Alex Bury.

Store Tour 6-7, Cooking Demo 7-8.

Nutritional yeast, seitan, Veganaise. You’re hearing about all these new products but may not know what they are or where to find them. Join us on a tour of Whole Foods so you can learn about new foods or healthier versions of familiar favorites and where to find them.

Then come learn how to prepare a few delicious, yet simple plant-strong foods with a cooking class taught by Chef Alex Bury. Alex was trained as a classical chef at the world-renowned Culinary Institute of America. In 2001, she and her partner opened a restaurant in Northern California called Sparks with an entirely plant-based menu. Sparks quickly became well-known for its outstanding food, even among non-vegans. She has taught healthy cooking techniques and recipes at Whole Foods Market, for the McDougall Program (a nationally renowned preventative health program), and for local groups and companies since 2000.

Note: Space is limited. Please RSVP by email or phone.
