Plant-Based Cooking with Colleen Patrick-Goudreau

Plant-Based Cooking with Colleen Patrick-Goudreau In-Person

In collaboration with Plant-Based Advocates, the library is offering a virtual cooking program with plant-based Bay Area chef Colleen Patrick-Goudreau, author of The Joyful Vegan and many other publications. "Plant-Based Advocates is a grassroots group that is working to mitigate climate change by reducing the traditional reliance on meat and dairy. They take action in the community by helping restaurants increase their plant-based options, working with local politicians, and sharing plant-based meals with unhoused communities" (quote from their website). 

Read below for more details about this fun and informative cooking program with an accomplished and passionate chef!

Colleen Patrick-Goudreau will teach us how to make these vegan dishes:

1) No-Queso Quesadillas

2) Creamy Polenta

3) Magic Chocolate Cake

The Zoom link and the informational sheet will be sent to all the registrants several days before the event so that each participant has time to gather the necessary ingredients.
