Sacramento is becoming a farm to fork capital. Slow food, sustainable farming – these are the sort of terms being used more and more frequently in the local lexicon. October is the annual Vegan Chef Challenge where a variety of restaurants offer a separate vegan menu for the month and diners vote on their favorites. (I only managed to make it to The Porch this year though, dang it.) This awareness of food, where it is coming from, what processes each item goes through on the way to your belly, is something that alt+library is interested in and we have had several raw or healthy eating programs over the last couple of years. Since we’re coming up on some serious “eating holidays”, we invite you to join us for Go Raw: Holiday Edition. If you loooooove a big fat roasted turkey, you get DOWN with your bad turkey-eating self. If you are interested in exploring some unusual raw variations on the more traditional fare, come sample the recipes we’ve collected and see what you think. (These are not mutually exclusive positions – you can dig cooked meat AND raw foods.) Holidays get heavy so keep your belly light and happy! As always, check out our meetup for upcoming programs and we hope to see you soon!
(There will definitely be dessert. Maybe even two.)
