The Chef: Abby
The Menu: Maybe Abby served up homemade black-bean burgers, which she covered in melted Daiya. Maybe she also made her signature delicious biscuits, and just maybe those were also covered in magical melted Daiya. Yes, it was a good lunch day here at the VNHQ. As if the cheddary goodness wasn't enough, we also had a lovely mixed-greens salad with sliced zucchini, grated carrots, and red quinoa that we topped with Organicville's soon-to-be-released vegan Thousand Island Dressing.
The Goods: You might think that after such a wonderful lunch, we'd be all out of goods, but that's where you'd be wrong. You see, one Laura Hooper Beck joined us today, and with her she brought the lovely Mandarin and Raspberry Cheesecake you see below. This dairy-free delight was made by Sugar Plum Vegan, a bakery with a storefront coming soon to Sacramento, Calif.
So yeah, things are pretty good. Here's hoping that everyone's first week of 2010 has been this tasty so far!
