If you missed the Vegan Cooking Class…

Afghanstani-Vegan Goodness

Afghanistani-Vegan Goodness

25 people signed up for the class, with a full waiting list of people sitting idle though we only had about 15 people that actually showed up. Still, I consider it a pretty good turnout for a vegan cooking event in Santa Clarita. I found out that the Valencia Library actually paid and sponsored the event themselves with some grant money they received. I would like to give a big thanks to them for funding a great event, as well as a big thanks to Zel and Reuben Allen for supplying the recipes, ingredients, cookware and creating a fun learning environment.

I must say that the class was more fun and comprehensive than I expected. The class consisted of several different stations with everyone in the class broken into groups  and working on a different recipe. At the end we put all of the different dishes together and had a neat vegan buffet, Afghan style!

I spoke with the Library Manager after the class and told her how much fun it was, urging her to have more events like this. We definitely had room for more people, so next time something like this comes along and the class if supposedly “full”, just crash it and hang out. Free vegan food is reason enough to show up anywhere.

Vegan Cooking Class **UPDATE**

The vegan cooking class being offered at the Valencia Library this Saturday is FULL and the waiting list is 15 people long as of yesterday.

For those signed up, the class is Saturday, February 21st, 2009 at 1pm. If you cannot make it you may want to consider calling the library and let them know, so people on the waiting list can move up a spot.
