What’s for dinner?

Sunday, November 15th, 2009

pure food and wine lasagnaVegan, raw, organic food for dinner? Not something I’d usually explore past a salad, before a meat and potatoes style entrée! However, while I was in New York I had the opportunity to partake in possibly, the most delicious, creative food I have ever eaten. The place: Pure Food and Wine in the Gramercy Park Neighborhood in Manhattan. Simply put, there are no animal products used other than honey, everything is fresh and organic, it’s all raw, and not heated above 118 degrees to preserve the vitamins, minerals, and natural enzymes.

Update: NYC panel discussion

Friday, November 13th, 2009

Last week I had the pleasure of participating in the 2009 Jane Jacobs Forum: Re-Imagining New York: Designing Urban Farms to Feed our Cities. It was a real honor to discuss these dynamic issues in front of a packed house of engaged New Yorkers. What a rush!

The video gives a great summary of the discussion, but only one or two of my comments made the cut. MAS has a full version of the audio on their website. Also, if your just dying to hear what I had to say you can download the podcast from iTunes click here
