Lunch at VegNews

Lunch at VegNews

Posted on 18. Nov, 2008 by Yvonne Smith in Blog, Travel

I just took a trip out to my homeland of Northern California for the San Francisco Green Festival.  The journey had many highlights, but one that really stands out is my lunch with the VegNews Magazine crew.  The weather was incredible and we got to sit outside on the sidewalk just steps away from the beach as we enjoyed a fabulous vegan meal prepared by Editorial Director Aurelia d’Andrea and Associate Publisher Colleen Holland.  I could go into detail about the lovely spicy butternut squash and couscous salad, but they have described it so well on their blog, you can just click here to read about it and see a lovely photo.  It was as good as it looked!  Lunch was followed by a dessert of some yummy new products from the folks at Purely Decadent.  I hope they’ll send me some so I can review them here on my site.  (Hint, hint.)

It was wonderful to see my VegNews friends again and meet some new folks as well.  After lunch, Rey Ortega of Sun Flour Baking Company stopped by with Dan Piraro, a fellow vegan and artist whom I have wanted to meet for some time.  I got a photo with Dan and a bunch of cookies from Rey, so all in all, a pretty fabulous time at VegNews!

By the way, have you seen their new website?  It looks great!  Thanks again, Friends.

I definitely have more to blog about from the weekend, so stay tuned!

    That’s great that Dan and Rey stopped by while you were there. I met Dan and his beautiful wife Ashley at Summerfest in 2006 and 2007 and then Dan came to Santa Rosa to the McDougall program. He is a great guy.
    I hope that when I go to VegNews that the weather is as nice but I doubt it.
    Thanks for sharing. Need to get to my blog post about The Green Festival, where I unfortunately didn’t get to see you.

    I’m jealous of all the fun, good food, and good company you enjoyed on your trip! And all the Flickr photos of said good food? Jealousy tripled!
