An Evening with Candle 79: A Benefit for Just Food
Tuesday, June 25, 2013 from 7:00 PM to 9:00 PM (EDT)
New York, NY
Just Food is proud to partner with Whole Foods Market for this series of cooking demonstrations and tastings.
It’s hard enough to satisfy every diner at a popular Manhattan restaurant—imagine having to do it without using meat, fish, dairy, or eggs! Candle 79 (and sister restaurant Candle Cafe) has been doing just that for years, offering inspired vegan creations that have earned the praise of restaurant critics, hardcore vegans, or folks who just love excellent, plant-based cuisine. Tonight, let owner Joy Pierson show you how it’s done. Carnivores welcome!
On the Menu: Heirloom Tomato-Avocado Tartare; Farmers’ Market Gazpacho; Black Bean-Chipotle Burgers.
Instructor: Joy Pierson, Co-Owner, Candle Cafe and Candle 79; Co-Author, The Candle Cafe Cookbook (Clarkson Potter)
