Join me on G+ this Tuesday LIVE

Even if you have all your tofu turkeys in a row and cranberries counted, there’s no telling what can happen when you’re getting ready for a vegan thanksgiving.

If you’re hosting at your home, or just bringing along a butternut squash casserole to dinner, join me and special vegan food experts for a live Google on Air chat this Tuesday 7-9pm EST.

If you’re not familiar with Google Hangouts on Air chats, you can watch it live via my page (you’ll need to add me to your circles to enter the hangout)


COMING ATTRACTIONS: book signing, vegan Thanksgiving hotline, flan

Hey New Jersey! Join me this Thursday 7pm at B&N in Clifton, NJ for a talk and book signing all about my latest, Vegan Eats World.

Also, get ready for a super-exciting LIVE Google Hangout next week, just in time for all your meatless and plant-based Thanksgiving questions! Details delivered piping hot as soon as I get ‘em!

And just in case you missed it, there’s some Maple Pumpkin Flan waiting for you over at Powell’s, for a light and tasty final to any fall meal.

Cookin’ in Hotlanta: Atlanta VegFest this Saturday!

This Saturday I’ll be presenting at last vegan food festival of the year, Atlanta’s own first Vegetarian Food Festival. I’ve never been to Atlanta, and look forward to some good vegan soul food eats, friendly folks, and some warmer weather with perhaps a little sunshine, especially with a chilly new nor’easter blowing into town sometime today.

The fest is free, has a boatload of fun events for kids and the first 300 guests (doors open at 9:45 a.m) will receive goodie bags filled with coupons and samples from many of the fest’s great vegan-friendly sponsors and companies!

Bring your shiny new copy of Vegan Eats World or pick one up right there at the ‘fest and I’ll be more than happy to sign it with my special purple pen! I’ll also have some DVD’s of the first season of Vegan Mash Up for sale too!

Atlanta Veg Fest will be held at:

Ambient Plus Studio
585 Wells St. SW Unit A
Atlanta, GA 30312

Parking: Free. There’s a fenced-in parking area, and we’ll have a parking attendant on duty.

A week at Powell’s

It’s been a hell of a week since Sandy touched down last Monday. Just in case you missed it, I did a 5 day blogging series for the amazing Powell’s City of Books of Portland, OR.

There’s a recipe or two (including autumn-spiced vegan pumpkin flan) and mediations on the hurricane, creativity, the release of my new book Vegan Eats World and recent travels. When you get a free moment, catch up on my latest fresh and tasty batch of blogging.

What If the World Was Vegan?

The true building blocks of cuisines across the planet are the spices, herbs, and grains—from basmati rice to buckwheat, coconut to caraway seeds. Apply those flavors to vegan staples such as seitan, or tofu and even straight-up vegetables, and the possibilities? If not endless, pretty darned expansive.

So what if the world was vegan? Your own cooking is the answer to that question; fire up the stove and make a green curry, simmer a seitan date tagine stew, or hold a freshly made corn tortilla piled high with chile-braised jackfruit in your hand. Chart your course in the great, growing map of vegan food history.

Award-winning chef, author of Veganomicon, and author of Viva Vegan Terry Hope Romero continues the vegan food revolution with more than 300 bold, delicious recipes based on international favorites. With chapters devoted to essential basics such as Spice Blends; The Three Protein Amigos; and Pickles, Chutneys & Saucier Sauces, you can make everything from salads to curries, dumplings and desserts. Vegan Eats World will help you map your way through a culinary world tour, whether you want to create a piergoi party or Thai feast, easy Indian chaat lunch or Your International House of Dinner Crepes.
