(schedule to be announced soon)
Christy Morgan, The Blissful Chef, has been tantalizing taste buds for years as a vegan chef, cooking instructor, food writer, and cookbook author. Christy’s mission is to show that a whole food plant-based diet can be delicious, easy and will bring more energy and bliss into your life! Her fun and informative classes teach amateurs and seasoned veterans alike how to create simple yet delicious, sustainable, “green” meals using local organic produce and seasonal cooking techniques.
Christy has been seen on VegNews.com, One Green Planet, Daily Candy, Fox Good Day, From A to Vegan, and is a guest on numerous radio shows and podcasts including Martha Stewart Living Radio, Our Hen House, Vegan World Radio, and the Dr. Don Show. Her cookbook Blissful Bites is available now where books our sold! Find out more at TheBlissfulChef.com. Be sure to follow her on Twitter and visit her Facebook page. (photo courtesy Sylvia Elzafon)
After working for a few years at San Francisco’s Millennium, Lauren Fitzgerald can now be found behind the bar at Portobello Vegan Trattoria in Portland, OR, where she has been creating craft cocktails that blend house-infused liquors, farm-fresh produce, and a passion for vegan excellence. VegNews says "the cocktail menu is worth a visit alone" and her "creations are straight-up divine." Lauren Fitzgerald worked with Isa Chandra Moskowitz on her "Appetite for Reduction" cookbook, and has been the brainchild and chef behind noteworthy vegan pop-up restaurants along the West Coast.
Lauren will talk about what makes a “Vegan Drink” – as well as demonstrate her skills used in taking home the coveted title of Iron Bartender PDX 2011, beating out the competition as the sole vegan contestant.
Combining his passion for veganism and skill at writing and recording music, the Vegan Black Metal Chef puts on a cooking show like no other on the planet (and beyond…).
After exploding onto the scene last year with his special brand of black metal music and vegan cooking videos, the Vegan Black Metal Chef has continued to churn out hit after hit of entertaining, humorous, educational – and possibly eyebrow-raising – videos that have caught the vegan world by storm.
Join the Vegan Black Metal Chef as he demonstrates vegan cooking as only he can.
