Animal Acres' 5th Annual Compassionate Cuisine Event
Back at the end of October I attended Animal Acres' 5th Annual Compassionate Cuisine Event in Long Beach. Since that occurred right at the beginning of the holidays, I'm just bringing the coverage to you now. Thank goodness for my amazing intern Rachel for editing it!
This was my second time at Compassionate Cuisine and it was a lot like the 2009 event - same location, same setup, and many of the same vendors. I was thrilled to finally try food from the Seabirds truck (beer battered avocado was amazing!), Margo's Bark root beer was excellent, and Kamal Palace had some of the best chana masala I've ever had. My favorite vegan dessert goddesses were there: C'est La V Bakeshop and Luscious Organic Desserts - they each had some gluten-free treats that were incredible, plus some glutenous desserts I indulged in.
The event benefits Animal Acres and they had a huge turnout of hungry supporters. This was a great example of how delicious and fun vegan food can be. Hope you enjoy the video!
