This week on I Eat Plants: An interview with a chef + Cinco de Mayo (vegan-style) and my Red Radio interview

by JL Fields on May 3, 2012

I am loving the responses to the socca post yesterday! I was so happy to learn that there are many socca fans but also that I wasn’t the only one who delayed the skillet flat bread experience. If you missed the post, be sure to check out my Socca-Style Pizza “Bread” recipe!

Last week I announced my new online column on Small Bites, the food blog of my local paper. This week in I Eat Plants I interview a non-vegan chef of a non-vegetarian restaurant about why he is so vegan-friendly.

I hope you’ll check it out. Tonight Dave and I are going to the five-course beer tasting dinner that I mention at the conclusion. Woot!

Hope you’re having a great day!

    Wonderful interview. Is it wrong that I want both those desserts now (at 11:30 in the morning)?

       Beth, not a single thing wrong with that! 😉

  • Love your blog!  I just started reading.  Your interview was really great.  In New York it’s so easy to eat vegan–waitstaff and chefs completely understand. Other cities are definitely more of a challenge.  Hopefully more chefs will get on the vegan bandwagon and start taking on plant-based meals as a challenge!

       Hi Natalie! Thank you for commenting and saying hi.  I think that the more we all request vegan meals wherever we dine, we’ll see more accommodations. Food activism!

    Enjoyed your radio interview. I’m in Chicago. How did you like living here? We have several vegan restaurants here now. Native Foods Cafe, Urban Vegan, Karyn’s, Chicago Diner,& Amitabul, just to name a few! If you’re ever back here, have to to review them.

       Ree, I loved Chicago! I lived their for eleven years.  Of course, I wasn’t vegetarian or vegan then – can’t wait to try out these great options next time I’m there!
