As mentioned in the previous post, I’m taking on the role of guest chef for this year’s Woodstock Farm Animal Sanctuary’s ThanksLiving feast. And don’t worry if you’re already busy making plans for the third week in November for your 20th year high school reunion, winning a vegan pie eating contest or scaling the ups and downs of Machu Picchu…this year’s food-filled fundraiser for farm animals is being held October 16th, smack in the middle of all the gorgeous upstate New York fall foliage you can handle.

If you haven’t been before, ThanksLiving is a great excuse to get the heck out of the city (no matter which one you call home, even if it’s in the ‘burbs), hang out with some amazingly cool animals and people surrounded by postcard-pretty mountains, and most importantly eat a great all-vegan Thanksgiving themed meal with 300 of your new closest friends. NYC city folks without a car (including yours truly): the WFAS is public transportation friendly via bus from Port Authority (contact them about the charter bus option!)

As we draw closer to actual Thanksgiving I’ll post weekly a recipe from the menu, scaled down to about your average dinner table instead of an entire pasture of eaters. Either way, it’s never too early to plan for a vegan Thanksgiving feast.

There are still tickets available, so don’t be a puddle of cold gravy and reserve your spot today!

P.S. As of this writing the farm could use a little extra help regarding finding additional commercial kitchen space for preparing for this event. If you move within food service circles in the area, or know someone who does, please contact me asap! Do it for the turkeys!
