The Chef: Aurelia
The Menu: This week promises to be full of suprises, starting with today's luncheon debut of Aurelia's veggie delight casserole. This spur-of-the-moment creation incorporated all the best of today's organic produce delivery, including collard greens, broccoli, roasted red potatoes, and topped with a creamy red bell pepper and tofu topping. Getting creative in the kitch is what it's all about people, and Aurelia outdid herself with this mouthwatering concoction. It satisfies both the adventurous palate, with a mélange of organic vegetables and tofu cream sauce, while providing the familiar comfort of a homemade casserole from scratch.
The Goods: VegNews is having an exciting week, beginning tomorrow with a field trip to Google headquarters for lunch. Friday's menu will be featuring recipes from the cookbook that is burning up the best-seller list, Skinny Bitch in the Kitch. We are also waiting with bated breath for the appearance of a surprise guest towards the end of the week—at Café VegNews we like to mix things up and keep it fresh.
