Hello veggie freaks! Just wanted to update you on a bunch of stuff.
November cooking classes – yes! Still in Alabang on Wednesdays. Get the schedule here. We’ve got cookies, salads, chocolate pastries, and Mediterranean cuisine in store. Makati classes are still in the works – I’m just fine-tuning some details.
Muni Market on November 8 – I’ll be at Muni Market in Capitol Commons, Pasig from 9am to 7pm peddling awesome vegan goods such as dairy-free ice cream, crack cacao nib cookies, gluten-free and vegan salted belgian chocolate cupcakes, and gluten-free bread. I wrote a bit about the market in a post here. If you’re curious about what else to expect, read up here.
Watch this video starring some of the Muni Market Day merchants talking about conscious consumption and mindful living (I’m in the 45th second).
Yummy magazine column – I’m still alive and kicking out a column on healthy eats in Yummy magazine! Out every month. I was all over broccoli mac and cheese in October (sauce made from kalabasa / squash, yumm). November is a frozen chocolate pie, so pick up an issue, stat!
The Workplace interview – I guested at The Workplace, a local TV show that airs every Monday at noon at channel 8 on Destiny Cable, channel 213 on Sky Cable, and channel 1 on Southeast Asia. If you missed it, catch it on youtube below.
That’s all, folks! See you in the kitchen!
NB: our cellphone and landline are back in business!
It’s been a sad past couple of days in the KR HQ… Our cellphone and landline are both temporarily out of order. The cellphone decided it was fun to take a dip in a waterfall over the weekend.
In the meantime, for any inquiries about classes and such, please send us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org OR fill up this contact page. If you can send iMessages, we still have our iPad which can receive ’em.
Our temporary cell no is 0917-632-6215 while we have our regular cellphone fixed 🙂
Our last class for the month is Pinoy Meets Vegan on Wednesday in Alabang! More info in this post.
Hey folks! If you’re in the Greenbelt neighborhood tomorrow afternoon, I’m hosting a free green juice and smoothie workshop in celebration of Mother’s Day. Come to the Greenbelt 3 Park at 4pm (in front of Starbucks) and learn how fruit and vegetables, in liquid form, can detox the body, boost the immune system, and achieve inner peace. Come banter about vegetables afterwards!
As you may or may not know, Kitchen Revolution’s cellphone died a watery death a few weeks ago but it’s now resurrected! We’re back in the cellular world but we also have a landline number for you folk who prefer to talk to a human being than text a machine. Our cell number is still the same – +63917.894.5086 – and our landline number is (+632) 577.8977. Inquiries about classes, bread, and ice cream only please, and during the godly hours of 9am to 6pm.
Classes for adults are on a hiatus this summer and will resume around June. Apologies for the late notice – we’re currently focusing on teaching the kiddies to chop and eat their vegetables. It’s a big project so the grown ups will have to wait their turn.
No fixed schedule for adult classes yet so if you have any suggestions for interesting class topics, do comment below or shoot me a text / email.
If you’re gluten-free or just want something different for your daily bread, perhaps you remember I bake artisan gluten free bread. Currently round loaves and / or baguettes are available at Edgy Veggy (Kapitolyo, Pasig), Corner Tree Cafe (Jupiter St, Makati), Ritual (Malugay St, Makati), The Superfood Grocer Philippines (New Manila), and through me (Alabang) directly.
Check out this newcomer: focaccia. Current flavor available is rosemary and sea salt. Comes in an 8-inch round and pairs well with salad, soup, or protein of choice. P150 per piece.
Made with brown rice flour, sorghum flour, cassava starch, sago starch, flax seeds, and extra virgin olive oil. Dairy-free, gluten-free, nut-free, vegan.
If any of the establishments mentioned above is close to you, do request that they carry my focaccia!
Oh yes, I’ve been tinkering around in the kitchen…
This one’s not yet for sale. Soon, soon!
Please watch this powerful video by Animals Australia. No gore or violence, just very heart-aching. I weeped when I watched this and it just reaffirms the work that I do.
Friends don’t eat friends! 🙂
Woodstock Farm Animal Sanctuary, October 2010
Tomorrow, October the 1st, is the start of World Vegetarian Day / Vegetarian Awareness Month. It is also the launch of World Meatless Lunch, a global initiative created here in the Philippines to alleviate climate change by encouraging people to eat a vegetarian meal for lunch tomorrow.
If you doubt that your food choices can impact the world, here is some information that may just change your mind. Not only is this vegetarian lunch a step towards minimizing your carbon footprint, it’s a great way to explore a more healthful and more compassionate diet.
