want to see what we're cooking up?
Vegan Iron Chef is a 100% volunteer run, 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization, founded 2010 in Portland, OR. Our mission is to celebrate creative + cruelty-free culinary achievements, bring attention to food justice issues, and unite the ever-expanding vegan community through events and programming.
Real talk: We want to show cruelty-free cuisine as empowering, inspiring, and exciting!
Want to make something happen? Volunteer with us? Join the crew? Sweet!
The cookbooks I turned to in 2018 were largely ones I’d either purchased immediately and continued to explore, or one or two (or three, or dozens & dozens) I’d picked up at the library to peruse at night, and couldn’t get enough of...or hey, keep returning to an online or copied version of just one recipe that’s changed my culinary life…..
Announcing our plans & ways to get involved for 2019!
We have a vegan cookbook club! And another date + book coming up in January! Plus, Jules has officially put in a request that we retire these checkered tablecloths. : )
So, times goes on, and we move ahead to golden autumn leaves and roasted squash purées as the season changes…..
If you’re in the Northwest, it’s not too late to get your summer-is-going pesto party on! You have a week, maybe too, maybe more. So, get to freezing some, before the Earth beats you and your garden to it.
I’ve made this DIY sea salt spray twice now, adapting the ratios and ingredients found on what seems like a bajillion holistic beauty care and paleo makeup (huh,,,) blogs out there. I like it because it has basic-enough ingredients that I apparently actually had in my bathroom cabinets
To set the freaking scene, we went into this particular market morning with a plan. I even wrote down my list !
Tales of strawberry season, from Vegan Iron Chef’s kitchen to yours.
Visiting a farmers markets is a freaking delight – educational, inspiring, and making you feel like how Oprah feels about bread, without the guilt.
I suppose there's no time like the present to break from a multiple year absence of writing about food on the internet. Hi, everybody!
