This is a rare last-minute post to those in San Francisco today. Chef Tal Ronnen (a well-known vegan chef) will be cooking up food at the Whole Foods Market in Pacific Heights on California and Gough, on Thursday, Feb. 11 from noon – 2pm.
Specifically, he’ll be touting the product Gardein, which is supposed to be healthy garden-based protein. I dare not compare this to Tofurkey, and am really really bummed that I won’t be able to sample it as I’ll be on another secret assignment. However, if you’ve seen the ingredient list of some other meat-substitute makers, you’ll know that there’s some not-so-organic stuff included in other products that makes me wonder if I shouldn’t just return to eating butter and meat. Well, Gardein is supposed to contain no crap contents. Someone go there and let me know how it is!
Editor: Thanks for the clarification on the date!
