I'm so excited to be participating in Vegan Mofo again this year. Last year was my first taste and I did a whole month of firsts. This year I decided to use the Food Network Cookalong as my inspiration. I chose to use Around The World in 80 Plates as my muse which aired in Canada on our Food Network since we are being deprived of Bravo. I loved watching the show and also watching what Hannah Kaminsky would make while she was cooking along with the show as it aired. Her talent wasn't unnoticed either since she totally won the blogger competition and now gets to take a trip to somewhere fun in the world!
My approach to this month is going to be to cook some tasty International cuisine using the vegan cookbooks I already own for recipes as well as making up some of my own along the way. I have been prepping a bit ahead to make sure I can keep up with it and it has already brought me some new favourites that I can't believe I haven't tried before. I hope you will enjoy reading all about my one month food tour of as much of the world as I can fit into it and all the amazing veganized versions of the traditional dishes of each country I feature. If the recipe is my own I will include it but if it is a published recipe I will just include the title and author so you can go out and buy a copy and support some amazingly fantastic vegan authors! And as always, if you would like to submit a blog entry that you do that would work with this show as it's theme, send me an email and I will include you in my end of the month round up.
