I love Nashville. I really do. There are three upcoming events I want to publicize. On Wednesday, September 29th, Tayst is having a VEGANstravaganza, which will be a five course dinner with wine pairings. Wow! I’ve had the privilege of tasting Jeremy Barlow’s vegan creations and I have very high expectations about this dinner. Anyone [...]

In case you haven’t heard, Nashville is pretty much under water. I just got power back last night and cable this afternoon, but thankfully, my house is fine. Many Nashvillians weren’t so lucky.

These days it’s easy not only to eat only vegan, but to wear vegan as well. I was thrilled to be interviewed for the Tennessean about their article on vegan fashion. Although I talked to the interviewer for about thirty minutes about all kinds of brands, stores, etc. and only a few were mentioned in [...]

I still can’t believe that we can’t buy vegan cupcakes at Whole Foods here in Nashville. They keep saying they’re going to outsource, but why not make them in-house? The cupcakes I make from Vegan Cupcakes Take Over the World are better than any cupcake I’ve ever had, so their constant excuses fall on deaf [...]

There are several places in Nashville where you can get a decent cheeseless pizza. Mafiaoza’s is always a possibility, as is Mellow Mushroom, Da Vinci’s, etc. But did you know that there’s actually a place here in town with vegan cheese? Yep, Italia in East Nashville offers vegan pizzas with Teese, made by the Chicago [...]
