Veg-a-Thon Weekend

CAS has invited a wonderful local woman, a graduate of the NYC Natural Gourmet Institute for Health and Culinary Arts, to audition to be the next director of our vegan cooking program: Compassionate Cuisine. She is already filling the air with delicious smells as she prepares for a cooking demo she will be giving to the CAS staff tonight. Tomorrow, CAS volunteers will help her whip up a 4-course meal for a small group of guests, and on Sunday she will be serving vegan finger foods to a house full of people. We are so excited to have her here and can’t wait to taste her vegan creations!
