The 27th Annual Vegetarian Food Festival!!!!

This past weekend was the 27th Annual Vegetarian Food Festival! Not only did they offer amazing food samples, vegetarian/vegan cooking and 'uncooking' demonstrations and great deals on foodstuffs, but the festival is completely free to attend every year!

Because I have a fondness for free food samples, I make it a point to always attend and I've noticed that each year the festival gets better and better.

One of the most memorable characters that I was privileged to meet at the festival was an amazing vegan chef named Alan Roettinger.  In addition to having written two vegan cookbooks and being a full time private vegan chef, Alan is also a bit of a blogger.  You can visit his blog site by clicking here.  I met Alan after his food demonstration in which he prepared two speedy yet delicious recipes from his new book "Speed Vegan" in front of a live audience and again at his book booth where he was giving away free samples of vegan truffles that were made with Udo's 3-6-9 Oil Blend (which were amazing, by the way).  Alan's passion for the vegan lifestyle is highly infectious and I encourage you all to check out his blog and books if you are looking for delicious vegan recipes that are also incredibly nutritious (and high in Omega 3 fatty acids, too)!
